I have been having major problems with my internet connection. Wonderful Lesley suggested that I contact Virgin Media. I did, belatedly. They sent an engineer today (Sunday) – no cost to me. He gave me a modem/router combined.
So, I am posting again.
Many thanks to Geoff, Elisa and Umberto for your comments! I shall try to address them in a new post.
Next will be a follow-up to my recent Stephen Fry post.
