As a matter of fact, I "fixed" the dumb thing about 2 hours ago.
The ISP is just starting, and the owner lives about 4 miles away. He set things up.. The bridge went out, so I had to reset everything in it.
This time, I left the IP address field blank, but inputted the gateway address for his gateway. It worked.
And I'm surfing through it right now, posting through my 'old' ISP's web mail.
