{kaboom} … the overreactive mind and emotions at it again!

.

Can’t help but visualise the “bitten off apple” at the far end of the barrel.
The saving grace is, it’s about a week too late. Unparalleled time lines. Unparalleled locations. Else …
.
OK. I finally got this [WARNING!!!] jaw dropping MacBook Pro – staying true to my “brother’s” alternative (positive?) philosophy of my home’s recent break in that goes like this: 
STOP. RESTART. TIME TO UPGRADE!!!

Technical Specifications:
—-———– ———–
Intel Core i7 2.66 GHz
8GB DDR3 RAM
Intel X25-M Gen2 160 GB SSD (kewl!!!)
4MB shared L3 cache
8x Super Drive
512MB GDDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M and Intel HD Graphics with auto graphic switching
15.4 inche LED-backlit glossy wides creen display with up to 1440-by-900 resolution
1x FireWire 800 port (rocks!), 2x USD 2.0 ports, 1x SD card slot
10/100/1000BASE-T (Gigabit) Ethernet
Airport Extreme Wi-Fi (802.11n), Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR wireless technology
85W MagSafe Power Adapter

… and the problem is, it {bloody} hell does not “talk” to my router at home!
It would willingly slave itself anywhere where there’s a freaking Wi-Fi … cafes, street stalls, warungs, kedai mamak, other people’s unsecured Wi-Fi and phones … you name it! The damn “fella” whom I’d visualise as having so much potential of being at the top of “Penelope’s Favourite {New}‘Babies’ List” and having fork out a handsome sum, is truly close to being reduced to shards of plastic, alloy and aluminum bits with one single barrel release.

So yes, I have done both “automatic” and “manual” networking set ups.
I have set up different “locations” and different networks.
And yes, yes, yes for the umpteenth time, I got the IP, Subnet Mask, Gateway ID etc. right!!!
I dream 192.168.1.xx … 255.255.255.0 and the works – seriously, how difficult can that be???
I’ve got DNS servers’ numbers (Google’s included, which is a funky 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) etched in my brain – again, how difficult can that be?
And last but not least I am done reading the various geeky forums and have done the RAP / ZAP / you name it. The only thing I’ve probably not done (and so has everyone else who has had this problem since 2008, as per earliest record I can find on the various forums) is: shoot a MacBook Pro with a Beretta!
So (honestly) without wanting to literally “blow” and figuratively “blow” one hell-a-lot of money, someone out there please HELP if you have a brilliant idea.
