Doh! I'm using CSolutions actually. I believe they use PPPoA (someone correct me
if I'm wrong). The router I have (a ghetto SMC barricade) only handles PPPoE so
    I had to setup the Actiontec to be a bridge only. What is the trick to
    getting Qwest to send a replacement? Locking up a few times a week doesn't
    seem to be a big deal to them...
