A case of the wi-fi blues and how I solved it!

Faster internet with Eero

As I’ve mentioned many many times before, we live below some of the kindest people in the world. They’re so kind that we threaten never to move out. Ha! Though we love living here, we do have a case of the slow wi-fi blues. We get our Internet from our sweet landlords upstairs and sadly it’s a constant battle of texting “our Internet is out” and “can you restart the router?” to which they happily do, but when you rely on the Internet for your job, the complaining becomes a bit much for both of us, though I’m sure they would never ever admit it.

I was lucky enough to try out the eero, a new system to strengthen your wi-fi and our Internet is now 400% faster!!!! Yes, you read that right, 400%!  See this little white box below? That’s the magic maker. Here’s how it works.

So here are Lar’s favorite journals to fill with all your hopes, dreams, grocery lists, and doodles! Read on →
