Thanks.  I was planning to use, 2, & 3 as my dns servers but was 
having trouble figuring out how to make ipcop ignore the dns servers 
assigned by our isp via dhcp.

I DID finally figure that out, but I'm not at the school so I can't make 
the adjustment.

It's under Network->Dial-up of all places.  I never would have looked 
there since we are most definitely NOT using dial-up (but these DNS 
problems sure make it feel that way).

Anyhow, I'm going to try that tomorrow, and if I can't get it resolved 
that way, I will give pfsense a try (as per your suggestion).

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
