I just recently ordered my verizon DSL... I am sure it is great but I wouldn't really know considering it hasn't worked in three days. After endless hours on the phone with Verizon they concluded that there is a problem with my winsock.... i did the whole ftp> socket error thing. They suggested that I go to support.microsoft.com and search for "winsock to registry fix". Well that site sucks and I didn't find anything... help help help, what can I do?

bah...
