[modem/router] How to configure a non-Verizon DSL modem on Veriz
I'm tired of the slow speed and intermittent connectivity of my Verizon supplied Westell 327W, so I went out and bought a D-Link DSL-520B ADSL2+ modem and a Netgear R6300 router (802.11ac). In the process of installing the modem, I am presented with a couple of questions I can't answer (and neither will Verizon India): Is the Verizon DSL protocol PPPoE, PPPoA, MER, Bridge or IPoA? Next I need to know the encapsulation that Verizon uses: LLC or VC-MUX.
Does anyone know? Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
(I don't want to set up the existing bad modem in bridge mode, as Verizon suggests. I want to throw it in the recycling bin.)
