Verizon FIOS update

Well I have spent about six hours trying to fix the problems Verizon has caused. I currently have my network setup so that all of my computers can use the internet and can use email; however, they cannot share files of any kind.

That is NOT going to work.

I think I am in a similar situation to Marvin Hoot...

Verizon was supposed to send a technician over today at 10AM. I am still waiting and it is just after noon...

Verizon FIOS may be great once it is setup; however, their technicians I have dealt with so far seem to have no idea about how a wireless network works and they know absolutely nothing about the Actiontek Router that they have installed in my house.

They seem to be hoping that I can figure it out for them...

Mike,

Check w/ Jack.

He and Hill have Verizon FIOS and I know Hill would have a fit if it didn't work right.

Just a thought.

The siding of my old house interferes with wireless for me. If you had wireless before that's probably not the problem though but I thought I'd throw that out there.

I haven't had a problem with my FIOS since they set it up - but then again, I didn't let them touch my networks either. They set up their portion and, with some help from them, I set up my own router and networks.

These things are good to know because I was thinking about converting to a Verizon package when Verizon gets FiOS TV established in West Central.

I had a call from Verizon the other day and was told it would be around June. I guess my first thought was that I would get a package deal, but I don't want to have to mess around with anything. I am still having trouble with my Net Gear wireless router setup, which according to the instructions would only take a few minutes to set up.

Maybe some can set it up in a few minutes, but it didn't work for me.

Mike, I'll be out running around today. If you still have the problem call my cell and I'll stop by.
