Mondays are always awful, monday lates, in particular are somewhat like drawing teeth. Or being dropped in a bucket full of angry piranhas... the funny thing is; today I encountered conditions I know nothing about; I was run off my feet, and barely got a chance to see anything, but... was so much better. What wasn't better was the two exceedingly selfish patients who both absconded. This meant that instead of me doing nursing work for an hour I spent an hour tracking one of them down and the other got reported to the police. I could have been doing something *useful* in that hour. But no.

I have however come home to my BT Homehub being it's usual completely shit self. It's now decided that the PC downstairs is beyond redemption and shall not be allowed to connect under any circumstances whatsoever. *sighs*

I may set it to use static IP addresses because clearly it's DHCP server is as effective the rest of the box. Bloody pile of crap. Anyway. I'll return you now to your normal scheduled programming.

Does anyone have any tips for making the BT Homehub less shit? I've had to reset it 4 times today - it crashes and then sits there displaying a few of it's little dinky lights (broadband, wireless and data) but fails to reconnect correctly. It has crashed though, because the wired machine can't connect to it's administration interface, and neither can the wireless machines - although they still show themselves as connected.

Rebooting it transiently fixes the problem, but since it continues to live upstairs (I'm thinking that once I've found a wireless dongle for my Hackintosh then I'll move it downstairs) I am forced, each time this happens to trail upstairs and unplug it, plug it back in and then wait. Whereupon this morning it would connect work for a good 2 minutes, and then fall over again.

I think I've got a bit over half an hour this time which is positively astonishing.

I did wonder if it had endured some kind of software update, but it still claims to be running the same revision it was a few days ago, before it got this bad... So, uh, suggestions for fixing it (before I'm forced to ring BT's "help desk"), well, they'd be useful...
