I would bet on the network being bad.  The other possibility which may
be remote is that there is something wrong with your ethernet card, cabling,
or router.

Unfortunately, correct.

Yup, the GUI still uses ALOOP which runs DF which reads AREA files.  I
really need to jump on this soon, but things keep coming address@hidden@#

The Fkey menu does.  The Fkey menu can be started from the GUI (Misc menu;
Function Key Menu option).  The Fkey menu was a whole lot easier to do
than the GUI, but the GUI is the direction I am heading.  I have made a
couple of updates to the Fkey menu to better support GRID display, but
I have not had a chance to get that into the distribution/update since
I have been on travel.

Not ready, I am sorry to admit.
