When I tried using Road Runner cable with LLGP (a Knoppix remaster) on a friend's computer, no setup was required.  Looks like I'll try DSL (the Linux distro) on one of my computers if I get Road Runner.  I'm currently using Milwaukee PC dial-up, which requires no software and works very well with Linux.  They don't care if I leave my connection on for 48 hours or more.

I signed up with Sprint ( now EMBARQ ??), my local phone company, for a DSL account.  Actually the account ended up being with Earthlink which initially worried me.  So far the account has been pretty trouble free.  Direct connection to the router with Cat5 is fine.   I am having trouble with the 2wire 802.11g usb wireless adapter.  Earthlink actually has a desktop icon on the Simply Mepis Distro, claiming LINUX support.  I haven't put them to the test yet.

I used to use verizon, which is a excellent isp, but they went and sold out here in hawaii to hawaiin tel. Now they made the full switch a couple of weeks ago and i did have some problems at the start. I had to make many of calls and was on hold for hour's at a time. Finally everything is getting back to normal for me and hawaiin tel was very good, even knowing that i use linux.

CableOne and Qwest up here do not support Linux. Anything more then your username and password they are clueless. I how ever have setup a dialup isp for a client via linux. Granted it was only 2 modems, but it works fine and the price was right. :)

I am putting together a guide about major and minor ISPs and how Linux friendly or unfriendly they are. ...

Or, have you ever been told "Sorry, we do not support your platform"?  ...

Good or bad, please email me with your tale.
