As far as I know, Verizon uses DHCP to assign addresses, etc. You shouldn't need to fool with PPPoE. Take a look here: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-dhcp.html If you're sure you have a PPPoE connection, this may be helpful: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/pppoe.html In the future, keep in mind that taking the time to write up an intelligible question will greatly improve your odds of receiving useful help. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
