Verizon DSL and Linux.. It's been done..

Not a show stopper.

If I had to choose a DSL provider though and Speakeasy was an option. That is who i would go with. Their TOS are excellent, at least they were when I used them about 5 years ago.

I have setup some friends modems that the ISP's have a window's mac only installation disk to configure the modem. But after the modem is configured it doesn't matter what pc OS you connect to it. So if you have a pc running windows just use that to configure the modem then plug in a router and it shouldn't matter the OS connecting to it.

basically if its a USB modem you will struggle

if its any type of router that uses an eathernet cable to connect to your computer then it will allmost definatly work...

my advice is to call verizon , dont mention anything about linux, just say that you want to use a router so you can have more than one PC running and ask for setup instaructions for the router,

then get a router, follow those instructions and you should be underway, as the router will deal with all the drivers and sutch and just give you a DHCP network connection.
