Thanks. My problem is obviously more than just OS related (why is it a
site my wife cares about? I could live with vmware/XP work around.) Is
there anyone else for whom <http://www.apsva.us/aps/site/default.asp>
hangs in linux (or OSX?) If so, I'd like to compare notes:
ISP/Service: Verizon FIOS
Router model: Actiontec MI424WR w/firmware version 184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11-MI424WR
Alternatively, is there anyone else with either or both of FIOS (I am
assuming, perhaps unjustifiably, that at least *some* of you who have
had success have Verizon DSL) and the MI424WR for whom the site works
Thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to help me diagnose this.
