If they're in person, I tell them the truth, but I `drive'.  I ask them 
what they want and provide it.

You know enough to ask them the right questions.  Ultimately they will 
provide you with an ethernet feed, perhaps on a switch.  If they need to 
test, ping is still ping :)

My parents have FIOS.  They have a tall grey box with a 4-5 port switch 
plus wireless.  The geniuses gave them a wireless usb card, then set the 
laptop up with WEP.  So much for security.

They told me some great Verizon billing stories too.  Even the corporate 
rep for their building can't figure out what service they have, why it's 
priced like it is, or get it fixed.
