It must be a routing thing. I do not use Wifi (yet), the problem occurs 
over the USB cable. Maybe I should instead switch off Wifi, then hook up 
the USB cable and try again. I own the FR since only 2 days, so this is 
quite a new toy for me. I had it working the first evening, but I don't 
remember what all I had messed with the FR before to get there. *grin*

Thanks for the reaction and the tip!
