Getting Verizon High Speed Internet to work with a generic Modem:
West Coast, (uses DHCP "Dynamic IP") see: http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=39099
Linux, see: http://www.humans-enabled.com/2007/06/verizon-dsl-doesnt-support-linux.html

This is a short guide to the proper settings to get a modem to work with Verizon's High Speed Internet in the East coast region. I had a great deal of frustration dealing with this myself so I am posting my settings so other's can avoid such frustration.

First, follow the basic installation instructions to connect the correct cables, filter and power settings.

Second, RESPOND TO THE ACTIVATION EMAIL! Going to activate.verizon.net has to establish an account for the webpage. This is important because the same username and password are used to configure your modem.

Third, wait for your service ready date.

Settings for the modem (your modem may have slightly different options):
VPI: 0
VCI: 35

ATM QOS: [default] UBR
PCR: [default] 0


Servicename: [blank]
username: [same as for verizon website (see activation email they send you)]
password: [same as for verizon website (see activation email they send you)]
Encapsulation: PPPoE LLC
Bridge interface: Deactivated

Connection: Always on
TCP MSS: [default] 1400 bytes

Get IP Address: Dynamic (unless you have paid for a static ip....)
NAT: enable
Default route: yes
TCP MTU: [default] 1492 bytes
Dynamic Route: [default] RIP1
Direction: [default] Both
Multicast: [default] disabled
MAC Spoofing: [default] disabled

The important settings are the VPI: 0 and VCI: 35, and to use the same username and password as for the verizon website.

Note: The username you type into your modem should be lower-case.
