Re: [AB] Tried to get shaw to bridge the DPC3825 modem/router
Another case of everyone knowing what the user is doing aside from the administration... with my previous help desk experience you would think that Shaw would be attempting to get users to activate a 3'rd party device to handle wireless just so that they can claim they don't support that to get out of troubleshooting it!
Kinda reminds me back in the day I went to school they had the fancy "New" scientific calculators come out and the kids would pre program them with answers and cheats before they entered a test room.
Administration quickly got wise to it and figured that the easiest solution was to stand by the door and hit the reset switch on them as students walked into the test room; unfortunately this doesn't work very well if someone makes the appropriate incisions to the copper track on the PCB leading to that reset button. They could stand there mashing that reset button till the cows come home and it would still have no effect, but once they did it they were confident that the problem was solved.
The ignoramus's ultimate solution... "We'll just disable you being able to use that.. problem solved.. " As they say, if your only tool is a hammer, every problem has to be a nail , thing is you wouldn't expect this level of idiotic simplicity from an ISP.
