We won't get a new one because it still works the rest of the month. Besides, it's mainly the wireless connection that has problems. What this means is my sister and I will have a hard time connecting to the internet since we use our laptops (mostly; she only has her laptop, i still have my old desktop computer). Sometimes this problem effects the desktops, but to a much lesser degree than the laptops have. Usually one simple restart and the desktops are fine. So as such, I have been making a few entries in advanced in case I am unable to update on the fly.
If the wire reached about a foot more, I would probably opt to have that plugged into my laptop instead of my desktop. As of right now, I have a rather comical situation with my computers: My desktop is old, so its computer operations are slow. However, because of it being a wired connection to the internet, its download/upload speed is fast, perhaps too fast for itself. My laptop is more up to date and is mostly fast with its computer applications. However, wireless connections suck (I've ALWAYS hated them, but settled when I got a laptop) and get interrupted signals at times causing lesser speeds of downloads. Even worse, my laptop is extremely likely to overheat if too many resource-heavy applications are on, so movies, clips, and such have to be quickly done.
I once actually pitted my laptop against my desktop in a download race with the same clip on youtube. I laughed when my desktop, despite its slow computer handling, downloaded the whole clip while the laptop was only halfway done. Kind of a shame too, but I suppose it's a fair price for portability. It sucks that I can't play as many games on my laptop either thanks to it overheating and shutting down so much. I blame my crappy laptop cooling unit thing and the brand of laptop.

And for those curious, my laptop is this: Acer Aspire4730Z
