Well finally our new internet modem arrived today.
Then to my dismay it would not connect. :-(
After retrying six or seven times I phoned tech support.
THREE HOURS on the line being shunted from person to person!
Finally it turned out that the modem listed on our account was not the one sent out to us!
But after all that we are online.
Fingers crossed that I will be able to resume more regular posting.
