Hi all!
Does os 9 install pppoe connections by itself, or do I need additional software? (I need to use verizon dsl)
Thank you!

Hi Deca,
Unfortunately, OS9 doesn't have <a href="http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106868" target="_blank">native support for PPPoE</a> (unless you have an airport basestation or other broadband router, which supports PPPoE), you'll need third party software. I believe the verizon DSL software uses MacPoET (which use to be buggy, but might be improved since I last used it).
good luck!

I believe Verizon DSL provides MacPOET to you when you order there service. If not I was just on there <a href="http://www.finepoint.com/" target="_blank"> Site </a> They charge for it so it would be better to get it from Verizon when you get your DSL service because it comes with it
