Thanks Brian.  I am giving up on virus.  Those who are the brightest all agree 
that it is not a virus.  Now that they are actively involved, I don't want 
virus concerns to detract from fixing the problem.  It was just my thoughts 
prior to getting help.  I didn't understand and no one yet explained why, so 
it was hard to give up the thought.

My router hasn't been used for the purpose it was made for a long time.  
Concensus is that it is a router configuration problem.  Sounds reasonable to 
me, because although I have been using it to connect two computers to the 
Internet, it hasn't functioned as intended.

Anyway now that I am getting expert help, as the door closes on possibilities, 
I suppose if it turned out to be a virus, we would get to that eventually 

I have never protected my computer agains virus anyway, because I did not 
think it possible with Linux.  I wish I hadn't gotten the idea now though.  It 
has diverted the talent from the problem.
