MiFi is dead, long live MiFi

…and I’m back online 🙂

After my failed attempt to update the firmware of my new Huawei E5830 — causing it to die a quite nasty premature death — I took it back this morning to try and get it exchanged. The branch of Carphone Warehouse I bought the first one from didn’t have any left so I had to make a special trip to Kilburn High Rd — a beautiful place and well worth a visit. The guy who served me was very helpful and got me sorted out in just a few minutes. Like me, he was baffled as to why the original modem should suddenly stop working like that — strange.

Lesson learned, I am now back home and writing this on my personal Mi-Fi connection. I’ll leave well alone this time (well that’s the plan at the moment anyway).
