Web going on and off today...figured I'd better post early while I still can. I think it's a line problem but just ordered a backup DSL modem from BestBuy in case the BBT one goes out on me again. Actiontec - 1-Port Ethernet Broadband DSL Modem with Built-In Firewall. Needed two more supports prepped'n'welded up this morning for the west face soon to be polycarbonate. Perhaps I'll get them primed tonight if some cloud cover rolls in. It's HOT working "on top" of the new shade. Set up the gennie and charge controller to equalize my battery bank...they are due for a boost.
