Everything stated is true EXEPT, Ethernet cards do NOT have RJ11 Jacks on them but RJ45 (similar to a telephone cable connector but larger)

: : You do need some way to dial out! There was no software with my modem--which I did not buy from my DSL ISP. I need to know where I can download, or even BUY this software to dial out, or whatever the term may be! I"d be willing to Pay for it! I've searched everything in my power for last last couple of weeks (about 5 hours total). Where is the software to dial out? Is it available on the web? Can I call some other ISP like Sprint to get it? Where do I go, please help!

: The trick is, with DSL you don't dial at all. At the telco central office, they unplug the wire pair that goes to your house and connect it to a DSLAM (DSL Access Multiplexer) which not only accepts 500-3000Hz voice signals and patches them into the PSTN, it also understands a 5000-35000Hz spread spectrum signal from your ADSL "modem," decodes it, and shoves it onto the telco's ATM backbone. There's no number to dial, and no way that signal could go thru PSTN if there were. Your DSL connection is always running, even if you're on the phone with tech support at the same time. It's very cool stuff.

: The fun part though is getting your computer to talk to it. What you've got to do is install an ethernet card with an RJ-11 connector into your PC. Look for cards that say 10baseT or 100baseTX, any of these will work. Run a Cat5 ethernet cable (which kind depends on the age of your speedport; some want straight, some want crossover, use whatever came with your modem and you oughtta be fine) (this cable had ends that look like fat phone plugs) from your nice new network card to the corresponding jack on the speedport. Now run standard phone cable from the wall to the normal phone jack on the speedport. Plug the power pack into the speedport and the wall and wait for all three lights to come on and stay on. Now boot (or reboot) your computer. This will let the computer get its IP address from the speedport. Now start up your fav web browser and get some porn. No dialing, trust me.

: Yes, I used to install DSL for a living. Now I'm a network administrator. So if anyone needs any weird help, drop me an email.

: And now it's my turn: anyone know how to get inside the speedport and hack its settings around? Specifically I want to know how to enable dynamic and/or static NAT...stupid Verizon doesn't give me enough IP addresses and I've got like 7 computers that all want internet access.

: Thanks
