Can someone tell me why some people can ask you for assistance on an issue but does nothing but keep asking you to help.
Here is the story:
He has the main computer on the third floor and would like to have wireless on the first floor. Here is the tricky part: Main computer cannot be moved (Only place to put it I'm guessing), it is next to a microwave AND 2.4Ghz phone. The room which he wants wireless is on the FIRST floor and other side of the house. Said it worked fine for a month.... Told him there are a lot of wireless connections around you and they may be using the same channel or have other obstacles blocking (like their microwaves or cordless phones). So I tried my laptop down there.. The signal is weak but I can surf. His wireless connection on his lappy drops.
This is the kicker...Advised him he may need an expander....but he doesn’t want to spend the money. So he calls me all the time.. So what should I do about this connection of mine? It got to the point where I told him to ask a another friend since he had a co-worker use an extender and got it going. The person he asked recommended an expander as well (must sound better coming from someone else). Now he calls to ask which expander? Again, I advised him to talk with the friend....but he doesn’t.. He asks me... Why? I have no idea...I don’t know the co-worker and I am not about to go out and buy the equipment for him... Now he is sending links on various expanders (even after I tell him to ask which one the co-worker is using). On top of that, I'm taking this class that is kicking my a$$ and I'm studying all the time. I wouldn’t be so bent out of shape if he put some effort into his OWN connection. Does he really think I care if he can't surf PRON or anything else on the web?
Friend has computer/modem/router on third floor
Wants wireless on the first but is too far, but he keeps calling.
Advised him to get expander but doesn’t want to spend the money, but he keeps calling.
Told him to ask another friend, but he keeps calling.
Keeps calling like I'm his personal tech guy who setup the connection for him.
Do you have friends like this?
