This is a question My First Experience of the Internet

We remember when this was all fields, and lived a furtive life of dial-up modems and dodgy newsgroups. Tell us about how you came to love the internets.

Anyone remember Fidonet
when the internet was still only used by universities fidonet was the answer for the rest of use. a loose knit network of BBS's that would forward email on a daily or sometimes weekly basis between nodes I remember requesting a gopher page from a fidonet gateway by email, my 1st experience of the internet, it took 2 weeks to get the reply and about 20 mins to download it over 2400bps modem. It was 1992, only 20 years ago.

No, but please tell us all about it, in detail, paying particular attention to the logistics of routing.

I can't connect to my router with WiFi.
Perhaps it needs a firmware upgrade?
