Dutch Master, I entered your ISP's number in Network Manager. It's working but extremely slowly (almost 3 minutes to download this forum page). Whatever is wrong in my modem, it doesn't like your ISP's number. Thanks anyway.
Nelz, I tried the OpenDNS number (126.96.36.199) but it wasn't as fast as my ISP.
Putting my ISP's DNS server number directly into the Network Managers has "solved" the speed problem at least temporarily. I also tried putting the numbers into my router and pointing Network Manager at the router, but that's slow again. My friend dropped off the loaner modem but I wasn't able to get it going, so he will be back. It's better to have everything in the router and the modem.
In faith, Dave
