Verizon gave me a wireless router and I'm not too happy with that.
I got a D Link DSL 100 D/CZ modem in my machine.
Will it work?

Also, I got an integrated 82557 network card in the machine
and Verizon says I don't have an NIC

How did Verizon come to the conclusion that you don't have a NIC ?  The Intel
82557 chip is
certainly a 100Mb/s Ethernet chip-set which means you should have an embedded
RJ45 port on
the computer.

However, the chances of the D-Link DSL Modem working are slim to none.  Verizon
only
supports Westell modems.  If you don't like the Westell Modem/Router (327W ?)
then place the
Westell in Bridge mode so it only works as a modem and not a Router.  Otherwise
you may have
to buy a Westell DSL modem from Verizon (such as a Westell 2200).

I'm sorry, when I scanned for replies on groups.google
I didn't notice yours.

THanks for the advice.
