I was at my friends house the other day and I saw an IT person from the ISP. Apparently he was trying to fix the internet. I don't trust IT people here cause they tend to be rather stupid here in Guatemala.
After finishing up he said "The computer isnt reading information from the router, you need to buy a new one" and left. He even had the nerve to charge my friend.
Right after leaving I decided to try to fix it myself and I found out the problem. He pressed the "Directly to Computer" switch in the back of the modem instead of the "To Hub"
I wanted to strangle the freaking IT guy, as soon as i pressed it, the internet came back. I sometimes wonder if I'm not smarter than the IT people here, me being 13 years old.
