I've gone thru the router and disabled pretty much everything. I've
still got the problem but I'm pretty much convinced that the problem is
internal somehow. I'll contact ZA and see what they have to say.

Leythos, thank you for all the time and effort. I appreciate it. I've
got to catch a flight soon, so I might as well end the thread here.

Thank you for trying to help.

HOLY CRAP! I was just starting to feel secure! I just tried to lookup how
to do the things you suggested and was only able to find something about
telnet. And I have no idea how to do what they suggest!

Seriously Goarilla, thanks for the input. I'll look into it.
