Well John, I went down to Fry's today and bought a Netgear 4 port router. I
tried to set it up and it couldn't even connect to my ISP, which is cable
modem and assigns ip addresses automatically (so how could it fail to get
the address?). So, I plugged my leaky Belkin router back in and was up and
running again immediately. I guess I'll try a D-Link router next.
