  It was Sep 8th, so it was almost a month ago.  Just haven't had time to
follow up since then.  For what it's worth, I was receiving a very strong
signal from the tower.  I'll go through tomorrow and check all the settings
in my modem.  I may also get time to drive over and set it up again and see
if I can connect (figure I'll try from an easy location before I go back to
trying to make it work from my very iffy home location).
