Okay, so it seems there is no telnet service available in route :-)

How about a simple "wget"?

Looks like a _javascript_ error/warning but not enough to tell if just this
can prevent the whole page from loading :-?

Really, I can't see how your network configuration can be a problem here.
If you have setup static values for your NIC and you can ping/reach your
DSL router you should get the same you get when using a Windows client.

There is no more magic behind an ethernet device and that's precisely its
best bet: it works regardless the OS and does not require for special
drivers :-)

I'm thinking it must be something under the network config.
Something in the O.S. itself that has come adrift.
I'll try a reinstall.
My /home partition is on an external drive, so the data is safe and a reinstall doesn't represent as much of a problem as it would otherwise.
