    Stable connection for 24 hours.  So, consider it resolved.


    1. Connect PC directly to new modem (Technicolor TC4350).  It's

    2. Connect an old TP-Link router (TL-WDR4300) to the modem.  It's

    3. Connect the current Asus router (RT-N66U) to the modem.  It's
    flaky.  I was about to throw in the towel and switch back to
    Teksavvy.  Then, I remembered that the old TP-Link router had been
    reset to factory default after being retired.  So, I did factory
    reset on the Asus router.  The connection is stable.

What happened?  I don't know.  I hope it helps others thinking about
switching to Carrytel.ca.
