I guess I should update or delete my post, as I already figured this out a couple days ago. I apologize if you thought I was still seeking an answer ironass.
I must say, you are excellent at answering posted questions. Your help has been infinitely valuable to me, and Im sure to countless others as well. Thanks for doing what you do, mate!
As an update, I tried another modem, and Im getting H+ again. So happy!
