Frenchie Techies To The Rescue!

Posted by F&S

In this age of technology, it's really quite annoying and inconvenient when something stops working.  Betsy, the stable manager, has been experiencing this frustration because the Wi-Fi in the stable has been broken.  Wi-Fi is, of course, the name of a popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed internet and network connections.  And Glue Squad, it's important to know all about this stuff!

RIP old stable Wi-Fi adapters! You've broken down and Betsy has been without Wi-Fi for 3 days!

The new powerline wireless extender kit has finally arrived! And not a day too soon!

Now Betsy will be able to get back on the internet in the stable to research and order cool things for the horses and donks!

Hey Sharkey, maybe there's something in here for us too! Maybe some doggie cookies...

Really Francesca? Is food all you ever think about?

Moving right along, this is the main adapter, which plugs into the electricity.  Then we plug this white CAT-5 ethernet cable from the main internet source into the adapter.

Doing this enables the adapter to broadcast the internet signal over the electrical line.

And this little box is plugged in on the other end of the stable, extending the signal all the way over here!

And voila! It works like a charm! 5 very strong Wi-Fi bars!

  • Francesca and Sharkey, you are so smart and so up to the minute in techy talk! Brutus and I can only be as up-to-date as our Mom and Dad (and they are about 10 years behind!).
    Happy Birthday, early, to Zoe. We hope you receive plenty of hugs and kisses and lots and lots of treats!
    Here's hoping all our friends have a great weekend.
    Pugs and kisses
    Brutus and Max....always on alert!

  • Good Morning F & S

    Happy Friday!! Glad to see Betsy is back in business, nothing like having a computer issue it can be so frustrating. I hear mom talking about her system in work it is cloud based. I can't figure out where she plugs into the cloud, must be a pretty long cord. All this computer stuff makes me crazy.

    Big BBQ at our house tomorrow. I'll have both grandkids and Nicole here so you know what that means LOTS of snacks for Zoe :) I told mom to make sure she buys cheese curls all of us just love those tasty cheese snacks.

    Sophie had a nice beef dinner last night - YUMMO!! We're having another beef treat tomorrow for my big day, I think it should be a National Holiday.

    Well enjoy your weekend everyone!!

  • Just imagine in the olden days we had to rely on tin cans and a string to communicate! :)

    Technology is awesome and I'm grateful to all the smart people who are constantly inventing the ever changing platform on how the world keeps in touch.

    Fire up the pooter donks and shop away! :)

    Happy Friday to the gluies and furry friends!

  • Hello Girls & Glue Squad Buddies,
    Another TGIF and party time weekend. F & S, you are sooooo smart about all this techno stuff. I just got on the computer this week when Mom and Dad were gone, all my myself. It is a real kick. Sounds like Betsy is a real Jetson now in the 21st century.

    And now for the big song...Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear friend Zoe, Happy Birthday to yoooooooou,and many more..... Could you hear me Zoe?

    What is everyone doing for the weekend? Working on kennels, walks, baths, treats, parties? Whatever you and your families are doing, do it up grand. I am already planning my Bronco game night party for tomorrow. A nacho bar, doesn't that sound yummo? Dixie Boy, do you think it is because George is still a little nervous, that he is having accidents in the house? Maybe once he settles in, he will be o.k. I had one bad accident after I arrived, and then once I got on my routine, (other than rains) I do swell. He will too. Love and hugs to Mama Pam and James. I know my Glue Squad Buddies are taking super care of everyone. Have a GEM of a weekend.

    Love & licks,
    Ruby

  • Morning Girls & Glue Squad - Another week has passed, where do they go?? You girls are so smart and know exactly what Betsy needed for the stables to get up and running with this techno stuff. When Mom has a problem, she calls Dad, he's the techno person in our house. Happy Birthday Zoe! Sounds like another party at your house, it will be alot of fun and the weather is suppose to be real nice too. Lots of outside time for everyone. Hope you get lots of toys, hugs and of course cheese curls. Ruby, hope your team does better than ours tonight..we still need some more practice if you know what I mean, we are now 2-1 :( Hope James is feeling better, Lucinda, are you doing okay? Pam, how about you?? I'm headed to the spa this weekend. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, Thank you so much, you sweet, intelligent friends of ours for teaching us about the Wi-Fi adapters that Betsy has to use to take care of the horses and donkeys in the stable! I was so amazed at the photos and so happy that Betsy got what she needed! Thanks for sharing those donkeys with us again and they are so cute just like you are! Please hug GK and Martha again for me and have a great weekend! We have been very busy lately with my Mom's brothers and now her niece and her husband living in our home! I've been overwhelmed and barking a lot! Happy Birthday sweet, beautiful Zoe! Hope you have a wonderful time tomorrow! Glad Sophie had a great beef meal on her Birthday yesterday! Nice to hear from you Brutus and Max, Zoe, Gail, and Ruby so far and hope to hear from the rest of you buddies real soon! Hope you are all doing well and have a great weekend! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • :-) Well those Donks must be very happy having their WiFi back....their braying was not good or loud enough to communicate, right? F&S you two are so helpful, too bad there wasn't a cookie in the box for all the work you guys put in.
    I'm going to look into this type of WiFi and the one they advertise that you can take with you anywhere and use.
    Zoe have a Great Happy Birthday, enjoy every bit of it!
    Today is cleanup yard day of all the debris from yesterdays storm, broken limbs, nuts galore, broken pots & plants etc. :-(

    Have a Great weekend everyone!!!

  • Hello Everyone: Ah the magic of the internet, and being able to plug in anywhere (almost). We don't know how it works, but we are just glad it does. Our human sister Sam is the techno whiz at our house - Mom and Dad are the dinosaurs! Happy early Birthday to Zoe, have a wonderful partay tomorrow, we'll all call it National Zoe Day!
    Mom is going to a Golf tournament today, so maybe she'll be home early - everyone have a wonderful day, and a great weekend. Lots of beardie bounces from Martha, Miz Lu and Riley boy.

  • Hi Gang,
    Okay, Francesca and Sharkey, you're hired! HAHA! Mis is not a tech wiz. What they taught her in school was obsolete before the class ended! Her sis keeps things up and running here. It's all very complex for me to take in. All I know for sure is not to chew on ANY wires! Mis gets real upset! Okay! I know now that they're not spaghetti.
    Ruby, Mis keeps saying that George is a nervous pooper. And he is getting the idea of going out. Mostly the accidents are at the door and happen at night. He just has to learn to ring the bells that Mis hung there and the door will be opened. Me, I just pace.
    And do you know what George did yesterday? (Ok, you couldn't so I'll tell you.) He found the little kiddy pool. Oh, Oh I had to leave!!! WATER EVERYWHERE!!! He loves the stuff! He drank half of it and the other half he splashed out. Mis's sis got some great photos of him and she ended up getting soaked, camera and all. Mis's doesn't think she's ever had a dog love water soooooo much! He can have it!
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOE! Sounds like a party till you drop
    kind of week at your house! In fact, everyone seems to be having one this weekend. Mis needs to get with the program. Just not a POOL PARTY PLEASE!HA
    Dixie Boy

  • Tech Talk with the Frenchies (Special Appearances by G.K.!) Excellent as always ladies. I'm sure Betsy is super happy to be back online again. Amazing how one can feel so cut off without it.

    Kinda of a quick post will come back and read everyone's details later but just wanted to make sure to wish Zoe a Happy Happy Birthday!!! Besides treats, wouldn't it be great if Mom and Dad gave you a huge supply of TP to run with? One can dream I guess. :lol: I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!! :smile:
