Re: [PLUG] Strange networking (or Verizon marketing) question.

Yes, setting up wireless should be no problem. I donât know how Verizon
has their DSL setup; here is a little hiccup that you (or they) might
encounter: they want to setup wireless buy plugging in a consumer
integrated router, switch, and access point into the DSL uplink modem
and everything else into the router. Some part of Verizonâs system may
have memorized the MAC address of the computer. If it is the DSL modem,
power-cycling it may be enough. If it is the endpoint on Verizonâs side
of they connection you may have to try to convince tech support that
your MAC changed. A less annoying way would be to have the router spoof
the computerâs MAC.

Take care,
