Ok, so Verizon DSL has been acting up lately, dunno if it's because we've had people laying fiber optics in the area of Northern VA or what. We've lost DSL for 3 days now at my house, aka, the time before Christ! (1) We called tech support and they said the signal works for our address, and asked about our setup. Quick history on it, we've had verizon dsl for about 2 1/2 years. The first 2 1/4 years we used a Siemens wireless router hooked up to a mac, the 2 pcs in another room use wireless adapters. 3 months ago we switched the router to a Netgear 802.11 G so my sis can use her laptop anywhere in the house. Well, when they asked how we had it set up, we told them, and immediately they said the problem was that they don't support Netgear. What the hell was my DSL working on for the past 3 months- no, past 2 1/2 years then? Magic? We told him that if that was the case, we disconnected the router also, and just tried hooking up the dsl modem straight into the Mac, and it still doesn't work. At this point he told me he was clueless. Any ideas would help guys. Should I see if I can get a new DSL modem from them? Or buy a linksys from Circuit City on my way home today? Or are they full of crap, and it's just the DSL that's down, not my router/computer configuration. A timely response would be cool, since I can't see the helpful advice at home! Thanks all.
