	Thanks for your attention and interest but using Jason
Turner's suggestion I was able to get the card working.  Not
really usefully yet but that will be a matter of time.

	And Jason won the information race and I thanked
him in another e-mail.  I don't want to embarrass him with
my effusions here.  I managed to use the Farallon card to
reach the Netgear Router and as soon as I decipher the
terminology of the Provider and the result of information
commands on the Dell Dimension 2400 I hope to configure
the router so that I can get the various machines into a
LAN and move some data from the ancient Amiga to the later
systems for backup while I use the dsl to get mail and other
stuff from the net.

	Thanks again Blake.
