Please, are there any more ideas, I tried these ideas and I only seem to
have screwed up knetwork.  Also please, while I have a history with
conputers going back a couple of decades, I do not know linux well, make it
simple and detailed. Thank you.

Also I want to make a brief comment to urge those who may be working on same
that especially for those with laptops where the modem is often a winmodem,
that it would be nice in the future to get these to work in Kubuntu.
