I'll agree here with Kent. I had Verizon's residential DSL and upgraded to a bus. acct. I'm in Illinois, and that falls under the Verizon West for DNS etc. My config was simply ensuring fxp0 was set to DHCP. IE: ifconfig_fxp0="DHCP" in /etc/rc.conf and dhclient did the rest. -- Best regards, Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
