    Playing with a LinkSys router and with two PC's running XP in a home

    Not at all sharp with this router stuff.
    Hope I'm asking the question correctly.

    Using Verizon DSL in eastern Mass.

    When I do the configuring with the network drop-down screens on the PC,
    do I want the pppoe protocal on the
    pull down configure screen (for DSL), or the TCP/IP choice ?

    Everything I've read says that the TCP/IP should work , but in the LinkSys
    manual, there was a
    small add-on note line that some DSL providers may require the
    pppoe, but it wasn't clear which to use. Calling Verizon Help on this is

    Use TCP/IP. If that doesn't work, use PPOE. (Yes, you can change
    settings...) If that doesn't work, call Verizon. :)
