Verizon DSL/Linksys Router Issue
I posted this in the network section however there is only 1 person viewing it right now... sorry for double posting but I need an answer quick and was hoping someone could help me...
Hard for me to explain this one because I was helping my girlfriend troubleshoot over the phone. She was having issues with her linksys wrt54g2 router so she hit the reset button. She has verizon DSL. Now the internet won't work. She called verizon and the rep couldn't get it working so they said call linksys. She called linksys and the rep said because they hit the reset button and the unit was now out of warranty they will charge $30 for technical support or she can purchase a new one for $90. I thought this was pretty big bs.
My knowledge of verizon dsl is the router has to be set to pppoe.
So correct me if i'm wrong (she's out eating dinner with her parents right now and I want to make sure I give her the right answer when she gets back)
All that needs to be done is access router using 192.168.1.1 use default password to access
set router to pppoe
input verizon username
input verizon password
and it should work correct?
i don't have verizon dsl myself so i am unsure. help as always is appreciated
