If they don't know where they are, we are going to have a hard time finding them...

I looked at Netzero's web site. They used to have a version for Lindows, looks like the link is no longer good. I think that you do need a Netzero dialer to access their service. Do a search on LQ. Seems like I recall someone who found a work around for Netzero. I used to use it for Windows. I haven't used Netzero with Linux.

If they don't support Linux you can drop them a line and tell them that you won't be supporting them. That's probably what we need to be doing. Tell the hardware manufacturers and ISP's if your not doing Linux then we are not doing you!

My question would be, why do you need their IP? If all you need is an IP of their website they host their site on and clearly your already online, why not use their actual address.. www.netzero.net

If your dialing into their servers to connect, it's not an IP your after but an actual phone number to use.. I'm even more confused now..

The Netzero software configures everything for you. And they don't support linux. For this reason, I picked up a different ISP and as soon as I get my stuff moved over, I'll be dropping Netzero.

I switched to a really cheap dial up ISP that does not require me to use their software. Just google for dial up providers and you will find a ton. I went with one of the cheapest and it's been fine.

What isp are u using now?

I am looking for another isp that will work with linux. Been using www.highstream.net for the last 2 years ($9/month) & was very happy with it until I had a billing problem & they were very apathetic about it. I was cheated out of money so intend to take my business elsewhere more deserving.
