Searching high and low for a signal. Searching north and south, east and west.
Apparently, they can read a strong signal coming from the south. Our neighbor has a signal from the north, but that would involve digging in a post, running wire under our lawn.
The signal to the south would require mounting the modem to our house antenna and running a solid wire down the side of the house through a hole in the wall, then plugging into the waiting router.
We shall see. He installs next Wednesday.
