Re: lost internet connection,verizon guess was the card...
First thing are all the micro-filters installed and in the correct direction? If they are then it sounds like your DSL signal is borderline and when the phone rings it is getting knocked out. If that is the case you will need a tech to come out and test the line.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Have you installed tnhe drivers for your Network Adapter? Without the drivers the adapter is, as far as the computer knows, not there. Did you get a disk with your computer and/or adapter? If so install the drivers and problem should be solved.
Try a different ethernet cable. It could be that your cable is bad. I had that happen to me before. My was from the modem to the router. If it was working at the store and not at home, then it is cable. It is should bea cheap fix.
I bet you are using the phone modem that canme in your machine. You need to connect the Network card ( Ethernet Card) and make sure the drivers are working. Find it is System, Hardware, device manager, look for ethernet.
Connection icon and see if the netcard driver is installed.Connect the cat5 cable that was sent to you with the DSL modem box. It chould be a yellow cable... It only fits one way and in a maked plug on the DSL modem and into the network card in the computer. Everything there after should go automatically.
you are gonna be charged for each MB used, and honestly, it would be a terribly impractical approach.
Just to humor you, you'd do it as such.
Set up your laptop to run all the time. Have the Verizon card plugged in, and always active, and set to never drop connection. You'll now need a crossover cable, and you'll run the rj45 crossover from the ethernet on your laptop to the WAN port on your router. You'll then need to bridge the connections. Some versions of Windows support internet connection sharing; effectively doing the same thing. Now, you should have active internet.
Now, you're going to be charged per MB, you're gonna have a SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW connection, and you should expect $1000 phone bills monthly.
The 2100 modem is a bridge modem only, it doesn't do either NAT or PPPoE. Don't worry what that means, just that it's good news. It is already a dumb plain pass-through, so you won't have to dumb it down so that it won't conflict with the router's functions. I am also going to make a wild guess here that you are in a part of the Verizon network that was GTE before it was bought by Verizon, and are not using PPPoE, but rather DHCP. If you were in an area that was BellAtlantic before Verizon that means you are on PPPoE and you have had your Verizon DSL for 3 or 4 years or longer (about then they started using the 2200 modem for PPPoE customers).
Configure your Windows XP PPPoE client as follows:
1) Go to Start >Control Panel >Network and Internet Connections.
2) Select Network Connections under the Pick a Control Panel icon.
3) Click Create a new connection under Network tasks.
4) Enter your area code in the location information (if asked), and click OK twice.
5) Click Next when the "Welcome to the new connection wizard" window displays.
6) Select Connect to the Internet and click Next.
7) Select Set up my connection manually and click Next.
8) Select Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password and click Next.
9) Type "DSL Modem? ( you can use your ISP Name here) for the ISP name, and click Next.
10) Enter your BellSouth username followed by "@ISP NAME (if required by your ISP)" and password. Confirm your password, and click Next.
11) Click Add shortcut to this connection to my desktop and the DSL Modem icon will be added to your desktop. Click Finish.
12) Click the DSL Modem icon to begin surfing.
Best of luck
The LAN (Local Area Network) information is obtained from your laptop’s internet connection (10/100 base t jack). If Verizon can’t see this info then the likely causes are a bad motherboard or the software drivers aren’t loaded. Without your “Device Manager” program can’t tell which it is. An alternate way to connect would be to purchase an Air card that plugs into the side of the laptop. This can be costly. The card is somewhere in the $50 to $100 neighborhood and then you need to subscribe to their internet service at about $50 a month. If you want to go that route, take your laptop to a provider like Verizon and see what card fits in your laptop. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

If this modem was provided with your initial setup of Verizon Internet, it's possible that is has Verizon firmware, and defaults to connections in their domain (which you are no longer authorized for, I'd assume).
That's just a guess on my part. Knowing where the GT704WG showed up, and who provided it for you might fill in a little more detail to the scenario. Good luck!
