Today, I spent hours and hours trying to figure out why the wireless internet on my laptop wasn't working, but everything I tried completely failed. At the end of the day, my older brother came home, and fixed the problem in under 10 seconds by turning the wireless internet switch on. FML

ummmm really if you know enough about computers to spend "hours and hours" trying to figure out why the wireless internet isn't working then you should know enough to check if it's on or off. Isn't that fairly easy to discover? I mean, I have a MacBook and it shows right at the top of the screen if my wireless is on or off. I'm sorry but this has to be a YDI for a total "here's your sign" moment

Well, windows is pretty unclear and if the guy was used to using a desktop where there's no switch he could be pretty confused. I remember it took me a while to figure out about the wireless switch in the first laptop I had with one.

YDI for using a PC. And all, yes it's a PC, Macs don't have a stupid wireless switch. Let the negative voting begin.

Win. Pure win. I registered because of your amazing comment. Macs FTW

I agree with te above, the reason this sucks is because your using a PC, not because your blonde.

Don't feel bad, I had the same thing happen to me the other day.

Me too! Once I figured out what had happened I felt like the biggest idiot on the world!
