I loaned my DSL modem to a neighbor for troubleshooting. So while hookup is a breeze sometimes they must do that step if a wiring change is required in some external box. But you should be able to install the thing.
But back to setup. I can't count how many know knowthing about PPPoE. If you don't you may not be ready to install.
My Mickey Mouse phone company (Citizen's Telecom/Frontier Communications) wants an arm and a leg to "rent" their 356k DSL wireless modem each month. But they say I can buy one from a third party, & they'll hook it up for $25. I'd like to be able to buy & intall one myself, but I'm not sure which type I'll need, which manufacturer is best. Gateway, 2 Wire, or whichever company can provide the cheapest that will do the job. I am a senior citizen, running MAC OSX10.4.11. Can anyone advise me? Every penny counts.
