Hi there, I'm Tim.....tell me a little more about this off signal problem...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I mean it's not a off signal problem. My apartment complex has awful Wi-Fi, so i got myself a router and im just trying to get it to work
Expert:  Tim replied 1 year ago.

RIght, so there is like free public WIFI at the apartment right? And you are wanting a better signal, so you bought a router correct? Did you also get an ISP? (internet service provider)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Grande Communications is the ISP at my complex. Im paying for it already.
Expert:  Tim replied 1 year ago.

OK, so is Grande Communications that your paying for like part of your rent type thing, or did you contact Grande Communications directly and get your own account?
