Have you tried turning off the router for half a minute? I've known this cure problems that only affect some devices.

Well Derek, it appears as if your suggestion worked. After all of these years fooling around with this stuff, sometimes one loses sight of the obvious. Instead of doing what I usually do, reboot, whatever the heck the device is, computer, ROKU box, iPad, I searched high and low on the Internet for more exotic problems.

At any rate, many thanks. Let's hope the connection holds. If not, I'll have to make another post for addition solutions.
