I hate suggesting to a customer plugging in a computer straight to the DSL modem because a lot of times, especially at a business location, it's difficult.

However, 9 times out of 10 if you put a little effort into finding the DSL modem, it's usually not 'too difficult' to then unplug the cable and then plug a cable from the modem into a laptop.

If it's so difficult you can't do this, whoever placed the modem there to begin with ought to have their ass kicked.

Well, in that case, if anyone is reading from Verizon... I have serious routing issues from a Verizon Business DSL line in Roslyn, NY to a client's corporate office in San Diego. Lots of timeouts and horrendous reply times, some close to 500ms. The delays all seem to be within Verizon's network (

Verizon Online will not open a routing ticket for me without requiring the client to tear down their current setup just to plug a computer directly into the DSL. A few VOL techies have confirmed that there seems to be a routing problem, not a DSL problem (duh, the circuit is fine, they have no issues getting to most Internet sites) but if they don't follow the stated policy they risk getting fired.

I'm just trying to escalate to someone who won't require me to run a battery of tests on a DSL circuit that I know to be working properly. Getting access to the DSL modem and plugging a computer in, due to the layout of the Roslyn location, is not practical at all.

Thanks in advance.
