    Quick question for you guys.

    I am using verizon high speed internet. Not vios. I do not want to use the verizon software to get online. I have a netgear pci card and I rather use that software to get online. But for some reason its not finding my network. Whats wrong with that?

    Pretty much I want to access my internet on netgear software NOT verizon wifi software. how do I do this

    Do not install the unwanted software, or make sure it is not running. If this is Windows XP also make sure WZC is not running. Then use the Netgear utility.

    Verizon will probably be using PPPoE for the connection. The Netgear software is just the driver for the Ethernet card. But Windows should allow you to connect to Verizon through the Network Connection Wizard.

    Now that two of us have made completely different assumptions about your "quick question" maybe you'd like to tell us what you actually have and want to do. The phrase "high speed internet" is used for every type of internet access faster than 56 Kbps dial-up. What do you actually have (DSL? Mobile wireless? etc.)? What brand and model is your modem? Same question for router if separate unit. Model of your Netgear adapter?
