I had a miserable experience with SBC DSL about a year ago, but I was running windoze. I never could get it to connect so I guess I'm a bit gun-shy.

Their DSL is comparably priced to dial-up in my area right now. You have to order online but customer service said  my mistake before was to order the kit for a single computer when I should have ordered the (more expensive) kit with their router instead of trying to use my DLink DI-604.

Is it okay for me to PM or email you for advice on this, Kent? It's okay if you're too busy.

If this ISP is not available to support DSL may I recommend It is a national ISP that appears to be good according to people who have used it. If you pay your bill with a credit card or checking account, it's $9.95/month. If you use my ID as a reference, my non-profit organization will receive $15 for every person that signs up. I use this ISP on the Linux machines I donate to needy kids. No extra software required. They were even nice enough to give me an account for free to test Linux compatibility, while others I asked wouldn't do it.

Verizon DSL works fine with DamnSmallLinux

For my local system, the pppoe username was ""

and the password was the Verizon email account password.

Plug in computer
Boot DamnSmallLinux
Run pppoeconfig
Enter in information.

The nicrevival account manager is back up as of 9/27. :D

I'm not sure where they're physically located, so this could have been hurricane related. I never lost service, although I did notice it slowing down for a bit. Whatever happened, they've got it fixed now, so I'm going to stick with them for another three months anyway.

Sorry,  I don't do windows.
