After A FiOS Install My MaC Rules & My PC drools...

Recommended Posts

hi, i had FiOS 'installed', but was not on site, so they did not connect my router/hub. when i did, and re-initialized by router (selected PPoE), none of my PCs can see the net, but my MaC can! obviously the connection is activated...any ideas why none of my 4 PCs (all Dells; different hw/sw; anti-virus sw inactivated) can connect? my wife is about to kill me, so any suggestions are welcome/appreciated. bk

What router was delivered at install time and why isn't it sufficient for your needs?  What router did you switch to?

My Verizon DSL is on DHCP, so try that.

I don't have FIOS, but I know FIOS uses PPPoE while dsl uses dchp. Even though they are the same company (Verizon),  they're 2 different technologies.

I think FIOS uses PPoE to verify that you're a paying customer, since you don't use a modem with it.

An FYI if your referring to VERIZON DSL it's ~ 50/50, Old ex-BA is PPPoE, Old ex-GTE is DHCP, Caveat SOME of the Newest DSL enabled ex-GTE areas are Rumored to be PPPoE. Example, I'm old school ex-GTE with DSL I have DHCP. HTH
