Bought a modem to try and get the internet in the flat to work.
The guy at Suning gave me some old bullshit, but after getting it home, it turned out to be pretty useless.
I’m going to have to go to China Mobile and get them to sort it out, with the help of one of my Chinese colleagues who might understand what they are talking about.
Once we can get this installed, then I can get back on to the ‘net.
Ok, so this has been going on for about a week now. I’ve asked 3 times for someone to come around to fix it.
After much consultation and consideration, chin rubbing by the necessary authorities, I managed to sort it out by myself.
I read the manual.
Those of you familiar with China will be familiar with this kind of set of circumstances. Often the Chinese will be willing to help when they aren’t in a position to do so.
Like so many other things in life, you’ll find it a better result if you simply help yourself.
