Incorrect Brandband Setup for Verizon FiOS

Posted: 02-20-2007, 01:54 PM
I just upgraded to Vista Ultimate, and durting the setup of my Verizon FiOS
connection, the wizard prompted me for a PPPOE account that requires an
account name and password. FiOS does not require that; it is a straight, hot
internet connection. How do I get this configured correctly?

Set your TCPip network connections to obtain IP and DNS sddresses
automatically.

I do have the TCPIP connection set to grab IP and DNS addresses
automatically. I wonder if this is that old problem of the network card not
getting set up because it is an older Dell Dimension, and the driver did not
make it onto the distribution DVD (using TechNet Plus DVD). I'll check Device
Manager tonight when I get home.

Thanks, JB.

I have a Dell DM051 and Vista Ultimate setup perfectly. Vista
did not ask for that info. Go back and make sure you have all
the info prior to that correct.

Ok, thanks, I will do that. I WAS runniung Vista Beta 2 before this on this
same machine, and it ran great... I forgot to mention that this was a Technet
Plus upgrade to Ultimate. I am looking forward to using this version!

I got it fixed...thanks all for your suggestions. I have a Dell Dimension
4400 with a CNET PRO200WL NIC card, and Device Manager showed a yellow
exclamation mark (I should have looked here before posting!). Once I went to
the CNET Web site, and grabbed the XP version of the driver, and installed
it, it went out to the internet fine. That dial-up thing must have been a
sidetrack caused by the fact that ther nic card was not working. In fact,
Vista actually cleaned up everything nicely after the nic card was working...
suggested all the correct downloads, found all the other devices on my
network (a server, and a wireless printer hub), so I'm a happy camper now.

Thanks all!

Glad you got it straighted out and that you posted back with
the solution. You may have helped someone that has the same
problem.
