Hi, Stephanie -
1. I still don't have any definite answers for you. Sorry
2. I'll keep trying. And I'm crossing my fingers that maybe michaelk might have some good ideas, too
3. I also noticed that you opened at least one parallel thread, and that you got some flak for posting a query under "networking". I don't know why anybody objected - I would think that's the IDEAL forum to post this question. Sorry about that, too
4. I have a bunch of questions (and at least a few more suggestions) - but none of them are a "sure thing" (at least not yet), so I won't bore you with them.
However, there are three questions I *would* like to ask at this point:
Q: What exactly happened when you tried a static IP?
Q: Can you briefly summarize (in one place) the key steps you've taken in our adventure so far?
Q: All things being equal, what do YOU believe might be the most promising "plan of attack" for resolving this problem?
Thanx in advance .. Paul Santa Maria
