Possible Reasons Why An Ethernet Cable is Attached to My Laptop

  1. I couldn't figure out how to get Dad's iMac to allow internet sharing from his wired connection to wireless. (Well, I could browse the web, but I couldn't check email; I suspect that it was a firewall problem.)

  2. Dad heard that you shouldn't let your children have internet access in their bedrooms because they could talk to strange men on the internet.

  3. The Thomsons live too far away for me to connect to the network THOMSON.

  4. The wireless router that dad bought for $2 at CompUSA is still sitting in the box, pristine and unopened, "in case someone needs it."
