Re: [PLUG] rp-pppoe and Verizon DSL

Do you have a baby router (Linksys, Belkin, NetGear) between your dsl
modem and the machines? They're about $30 to $60 for the wired
variety and various hands on the list can talk you through the
configuration if you don't have. The router will then made attempts
to keep you connected if the connection fails for any reason. And
most of them come with a firewall and NAT so you're going to be a bit
more secure. And you won't have to use Verizon's software, either.Uh, I have good news. Routers can be gotten for $10, $15, $20 after
rebate these days. That includes 802.11b routers.
Verizon doesn't officially support anything other than a model of
Linksys but most of the help desk kids can talk you through
troubleshooting any of the baby routers.
I've been spying the Linksys Speed Booster 802.11g router because it's
hackable and much smaller, quieter, and more energy efficient than my
Classic Athlon 600 tower. That you could get for $80 maybe.
I guess what you are telling me is that my IP-Masq project is a waste of
time at these prices...
