    What's your set up? Do you have a Cable/DSL router? Any other systems
    on your LAN, if you have a LAN?

    You probably connect using PPPoE (in a few parts of the country it's DHCP I
    think). So if you're connecting directly to the modem you need to put your
    verizon username and password in the PPPoE settings in system
    preferences/network. If you're using a router you need to put the verizon
    username/password in the router (probably [url]http://192.168.1.1[/url] ) and then use
    DHCP in system preferences/network. And connect using ethernet of course.

    Well that's what I did this morning with verizon dsl and 10.2 and both
    worked :)

    Sam,

    I suggest you call your DSL provider and ask them.

    If you're using PPPoE, you'll need a name and password in OS X's
    Network control panel. They can help you with that. Once you've got
    that, you'll sail right in.

    PPPoE and DHCP are not the same thing.

    This would sound like a reasonable suggestion except in my experience
    Verizon doesn't actually know that there is an OS X and will want you to
    connect via MacPOET which, of course, will not work in OS X.

    Check the current minimum requirements for Verizon DSL service, now they
    list OS X as the minimum and do not even mention OS 9. As best as I can
    tell, they are not including MacPOET on the starter CD anymore. But they
    have been doing a major revamping of their support site lately, so many
    of the downloads that used to be there are not findable. Since they
    decided to link up with MSN for content, the visible Mac support has
    decreased quite a bit. Hopefully the phone support still has people who
    can supply Mac help.
