Thanks Daniel,

I noticed that just before midnight, although I would like to see a 20/5
scenario (as long as it was only a few dollars more if that), I am rather
satisfied with my current 20/2.

On an old note, had to change VPN servers again, this time though I had
difficulty finding one, until I noticed one of the router settings as
absent.  Forget which one at this point, but when I set that everything
went online again.  We shall see (through time) if that was my problem all
