My sbc yahoo dsl installer has a crack can I install any other way.
Yes, you can. The setup I have seen most often uses what they call a "2Wire HomePortal".
Set the hardware up and make all the connections as instructed in the setup materials from SBC Yahoo (It's really quite simple: the phone line from the jack with the filter provided plugs in the phone line jack on the "Home Portal"--a simple router often called a DSL "modem"--and the ethernet cable into the other port on the "HomePortal" and into the RJ-45 jack on a computer)
Go to https://sbcreg.sbcglobal.net in the web browser of your choice. Note: it is an httpS address. The "s" is important.
If the web page comes up, simply follow the instructions on the page to establish an account.
If you don't get a registration page, try http://support.sbcglobal.net/register and follow the prompts.
NOTE: make sure the "HomePortal" router is easily acessible, because you will need its serial number duringh the process. The process MAY also establish a "temporary" login that you will have to replace with a permanent one.
