Stadspark is very nice, but can be very busy!

About the network connections I meant to say that the firmware in my
modem doesn't allow more than 3 computers to go online.
All get an IP adres and can work with each other, but only 3 have
access to the Internet.
It's a known 'feature' of those modems...
