First, thanks for the all of you who helped me, those were appreciated. It
turned out to be something I should shoot myself for. Indeed, as Nikolas
suggested, it was very simple. My ISP wants me to register the subscription once
a week, and it should have been done between Sunday and Monday. Perhaps because
of a national holiday or what-ever it did not time-out before Tuesday night when
I was installing the router. Of course, having no broser on BSD box I was not
able to see the problem. Next day I tried to download the whole CD1 ISO with a
laptop and it greeted me with the registration form. After that, there has been
no surprises with the installation program. With the installation itself, there
are problems still but I bug you with those only if I can't seem to sort them
out myself.

Best regards,
