Anyway, one time, I had a problem with a DSL line with AT&T, which had a trouble ticket from a storm taking down the 
connection and they had to replace a card somewhere.  They said it was fixed but it wasn't working.  After looking at 
the router, I was pretty sure they messed up the ATM PVC config on their side.  I had to wade through the level
1 support for 45 minutes of reboot this, change this before they sent me to level 2.  I told the level 2 exactly what I 
thought, and he said, hold on a sec, and said, yeah, you are right, I just fixed it, try it now.  And it worked.  Wish 
I had a special license to bypass all level 1 support....
