About the SE-70... the dude at Jaycar tells me that 12 volt AC adapters exist, but they didn't have one that could deliver 1.5 amps, and, wow, that plug socket is big. bigger than anything they had.
he suggested desoldering the existing socket and replacing it with one that would fit a less irregular plug.
just listening to Ween's album "Chocolate and Cheese", and it struck me how similar
sounds to "Tintinara".
iinet replaced the TP-Link modem that was giving me trouble.
this morning, the replacement started doing the same thing.
i am reasonably certain it's not a problem with my machine or cable, because the router DOES work if you reset it a few times.
gonna call them again on monday and ask if i can use the old Netcomm N600 instead. they supplied that when i was on ADSL, and it worked.
feeling kind of embarrassed for TP-link at this point.
