  1. I think it is a problem of the laptop. I had a technican come out on Friday since they needed to fix the battery backup. I also asked him to run a speed test with his laptop. He got 15.3 MB With my desktop and the WiFi connection I get about 11 to 12 MB. I am using the WiFi connection from the D-Link router that was supplied by Verizon. In the next weeks I will run an ethernet cable into the garage. Just need some time and to figure out what the best and less visbile way for the cable would be. Thanks a lot so far. I will also try some of the tune-up links for the laptop you sent.
  2. I just wonder if this could be my PC. Last night I got my desktop running again and I get a much higher speed. It is an HP with a 3GHz Pentim and 512MB. Getting up to 12Mbps. Connected wireless. Not the 15Mbps but a lot faster than the Laptop. The Laptop is a Dell. Since it is my company Laptop I am not sure about the processor. But I think it has only 128MB. Maybe 256. I have to check. Anyhow is there a way to tune my desktop to get the full speed? 12Mbps is not bad. Better than what I had before with DSL. For the same price. But 15Mbps would be better.

That is 162.2% better than avg. other reports from verizon.net That does not look right to me. I guess I need to call Verizon tomorrow.
  6. I have a similar problem. I got Fios installed today. Took two technicians about 8h!! to get it running barely. And still not complete. There is still a problem with the backup battery they could not solve .... But I have another one. Since the guy did not want to run a cat5 cable into the attic, through the attic and down into the office (second floor) we decided to place the wireless D-link router in the garage where the cable comes into the house. I have a laptop that connects to the D-Link router without problems using a very cheap Airlink adapter. My desktop PC uses a Linksys USB adapter and I cannot get this adapter connected to the D-Link. I have no clue why. I tried all settings. So I tried to use my Linksys 54G router (which I used for DSL before) instead of the D-Link. But that router somehow does not want to connect to the internet. Maybe it is the setting of the Linksys router. Does anybody know what the setup on the router connected to the FIOS has to be? The guy from Verizon did not leave me any notes when he setup the D-Link modem. It seems to be PPPoE but the username and PSW he configured is not the one I have with Verizion. Anyhow to make a short story long: D-Link only works with Laptop Airlink adapter Linksys adapter can connect to the Linksysrouter but that router cannot connect to the internet. I even tried to daisychain them by plugging the Linksys router into one of the LAN ports of the D-Link. This does not work either. Any ideas here? And another thing I don't like is the speed. I ordered 15/2 and I getting less than 1MB down. Tests have shown as less than 970kB/s. Is this an account problem. If this does not change in the next days I am back to DSL. Thanks so far.
