Bill, I agree with you, this guy's problems is settings BUT if somebody as
knowledgeable as he can't get the settings correct, then what about Mom?
Somehow this product needs to be "plug and play" with a minimum of fiddling.
Somehow it needs to know about the equipment you are using, the internet
connection you have, and the statistical state of the internet and do the
fiddling for you.

Cheers,
Dennis
