Knowing Concept, I expect they've done a good job and according to 
David, the modem is connected now.

Is the computer from Computer Angels, David?

If these last few suggestions are still not working for him, what 
options does David have to get some onsite help or to bring the computer 
in to Computer Angels. etc.

I guess onsite is going to be the way to go since you can't bring an 
ADSL line with you. ;)

If it's still broken in the New Year, David, I'll come take a look... 
I'm back after January the 9th.
