Broadband is finally
coming down our road, and it's going to be Verizon FIOS
. Their website says it requires Windoze or Mac, but a quick Google indicated that people are using it with Linux. Verizon provides a wireless router, so I should just be able to slap wireless cards in my Linux boxes, configure the settings, and connect, right? (Currently using CentOS 4.0. My laptop already has a Belkin wireless card which I use with a Wiflyer
Can anyone using Verizon FIOS tell me about their experiences with Linux? Was it difficult to configure? What type of encryption does the router use? What do you tell the technician when he/she comes to install it and all your PCs are running Linux? (My laptop is actually a dual-boot, so I guess I could let them get it working on that.) Anyone using it with CentOS 4.0? Any tips, advice, horror stories greatly appreciated! Thanks!
