Local Area Connection - Problem

May 17, 2007 at 12:22:09
Specs: XP PRO, 518
I recently upgrade my xp home to xp pro and when i got it install and tried to plug my cable (verizon fioz) in it there was no response. I think it's becuase I don't have a local area connection thing on my network connection. I only have that 1394 connectin and the linksys wireless showing up (i do know i can go to the internet with the wireless but i like the cable before cause it's faster). Do you think this is the problem? If so how do i get the local connection (i believe they call it LAN)?

You need to install the Verizon software before you make any connection to the modem, regardless of whether you're using usb or Ethernet. You will then be prompted to connect the modem at the appropriate time.

Life's more painless for the brainless.

Verizon FiOS isn't the same as Verizon DSL. The latter was much easier & hassle-free.

If this PC is your primary computer I believe you will need to arrange another appointment for Verizon technician to visit your home.

Call Verizon Tech Support at the link below to find out for sure and to get the proper head-on.

You're free to go wherever you want.

It's sad you only want to hear what you want to hear. I don't know why you do not wish to talk to Verizon Tech Support. They are the ones that can really help you.

Oh BTW you have violated CN Rules for posting by duplicate posted the same quiz in CN Networking Forum.

Again feel free to seek help elsewhere.
