comment Student can't open Word 365 document
It is a university account, and she was unable to access the file from another computer. She copied the text into an email and mailed it to herself, and thus got it to a computer that had standard Word.

Too bad I'm at a new job that doesn't even have communicator. But thank you anyway, because I'm sure others will find that useful!

comment What can cause Internet connection to randomly fail?
There were some good suggestions when I asked a similar question at superuser.com/questions/392619/…. I had a wall of books between my router and computer that didn't help, although that certainly wasn't the only problem.

@Kruug - make that an answer and I'll accept it. That appears to have been what happened. Since others here have MSDN, it seemed unlikely that an email from the domain microsoft.com would be blocked.

comment How do I fix an intermittent wireless connection?
I bet the floor to ceiling books aren't helping in this case either. :( I got it to kind of work, but it's still not great.

comment How do I fix an intermittent wireless connection?
Unfortunately, if you don't know hardware, you don't know what is useful and what isn't. Or even how to ask a good question.

comment How do I fix an intermittent wireless connection?
The orientation of the box has changed -- I'll try moving the box to the same orientation tonight. If that helps, I'll accept the answer -- the right answer to the wrong question.
