    I just hooked up to Verizon DSL and have a very old Belkin router that works. I know the router works because i set up a LAN using it last week.

    it will not work for wireless internet tho. The verizon guy said something about it not being compatible with either my MacBook Pro (early 2008 version) or the modem from Verizon, a Westell model 6100G.

    If anyone has any tips or suggestions, I would really love some help here. I don't feel like sitting on the living room floor all the time.

    Thanks in advance!

    listen, (lol) if there was a place to which I could DRIVE and PARK and BUY A ROUTER at this hour, my ass would be there.

    in the meantime, can't anyone help a poor crying girl out? :banghead:

    i was concerned that between 12:07 when you posted, and 12:08 when I replied, your request would get lost in the shuffle -- i'm diligent like that

    my second, and final piece of advice tonight is buy a PC while you're out getting a new router :D

    if the definition of insanity is repeating the same action and expecting different results, then I am insane.

    I re-did everything i did on the phone with the Verizon guy, and it WORKED!!! I am not posting from the middle of the living room floor, but rather the comfort of my own bed!!!!!!

    Hallelujah, it's been a long 10 days!!!!!!!!!

    and thanks Dawg. You must really hate me, suggesting a white girl go to wal-mart at 1:24 a.m. all alone.:p

    I don't even think there is a wal-mart in Brooklyn. :scratch: if there is I sure don't wanna go there.
