Great! Glad that worked for you too! Merry Christmas to you.
Always best to post solutions to problems here in the forums, rather than by email. That way, others that are searching for help on the same problem will be able to find the solution in this thread rather than seeing it was solved via private emails.
I totally agree with you! Being I seemed to have the same problem(including ISP) as Retired Chief I posted that my solution was to lower my firewall setting on the cable modem/router. I offered to give further instructions in case we had the same make/model of cable modem/router. I still don't know if we do or not. Retired chief knew how to access his cable modem/router and lowered his fire wall setting also to fix the problem. I would assume not all cable modems/routers are alike? I don't know. But I accessed my cable modem/router through my browser with the ip address of the cable modem/router. Used the default user id and password. Then chose firewall and picked the next lower setting and then saved it. That solved the problem.
Sorry for any confusion. Not my intention to keep it a secret. The solution was to lower the firewall setting on the cable modem/router(which was stated in my post and Retired Chief posts). I only offered e-mail to help with access to the cable modem/router if he did not know how to do that. It might have involved many e-mails back and forth and like I said their might be different ways to do it depending on make/model.
The last time I had the 2.05.03 firmware in my HP-1 it caused the Ohio Marcs TG's to hang. There would also be a popping sound at the end of a transmission. Can anyone in Ohio let me know if that bug has been corrected.
