*sniff* I think that my access point has bit the dust. Under normal circumstances, this wouldn't be a huge imposition. But with the snow outside on the ground (and continuing to fall), it might slow down my acquisition of a new access point. Hopefully I'll find something to coax it back to life tonight… otherwise I might have to brave going out tomorrow. Not being able to sit on the couch and work from my laptop would be a significant impediment to my productivity. And I don't think I have an ethernet cable that's long enough to be able to use comfortably for this purpose.
At the same time, it was one of the original generation of WAP-11s and so it has lasted quite a while at this point.
