Turns out one of casualties of the move was my dsl modem. It's been working nonstop since I got it - January of 2000. New modem was less than a third of the price of the original and it's probably 2/3 smaller.
So I now have a new modem and DSL. Yay!
Talking to the tech, he asked me if I were Japanese as his long time girlfriend is Japanese. Turns out I went to high school with her and even had her in my French class. =)
