Opened CMD.EXE and did an IPCONFIG /ALL

Obtained the IP Address for the Primary DNS Server

Typed Tracert xxx.xxx.x.xx  Verizon DNS Server IP Address

Tracing route to gtebo.ba-dsg.net [141.154.0.68]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1    33 ms    34 ms    33 ms  10.21.1.1
  2    34 ms    32 ms    32 ms  130.81.10.241
  3    52 ms    50 ms    49 ms  130.81.20.88
  4    *        *        *    Request timed out.
  5    46 ms    43 ms    43 ms  gtebo.ba-dsg.net [141.154.0.68]
Trace complete.

Then I typed Tracert xxx.xxx.x.xx  Their secondary DSN Server
These are the results
Tracing route to nyc2-qwest.bellatlantic.net [151.202.0.85]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1    34 ms    32 ms    33 ms  10.21.1.1
  2    34 ms    34 ms    34 ms  130.81.10.245
  3    45 ms    45 ms    47 ms  130.81.20.91
  4    43 ms    44 ms    44 ms  130.81.7.89
  5    46 ms    45 ms    45 ms  130.81.18.89
  6    46 ms    45 ms    44 ms  nyc2-qwest.bellatlantic.net [151.202.0.85]
Trace complete.

Next I performed a self test amd selected all the tests to be performed
I have copied the results below
Connection  / Status
DSL:      Connection up
PPPoE:    Session up
PPP:      Connection up

Test Description  / Test Results

Self Test            - Success
PING ISP's Router  - Success
------- End of Self Tests

Next I went to my default gateway and perfomed a Tracert to the same
DNS Servers I did above. First test was the Verizon Primary DNS
Traceroute to (141.154.0.68)

1 * (10.21.1.1) 32 ms 32 ms 30 ms
2 * (130.81.10.245) 32 ms 32 ms 30 ms
3 * (130.81.12.141) 30 ms 32 ms 32 ms
4 * (130.81.20.88) 40 ms 40 ms 44 ms
5 so-7-1-0-0.CORE-RTR1.BOS.verizon-gni.net (130.81.20.85) 34 ms 48 ms * ms
  6 gtebo.ba-dsg.net (141.154.0.68) 36 ms 44 ms 34 ms

It didn't time out from here as it did from my computer.

Tracert to Verizon's Secondary DNS Server results
Traceroute to (151.202.0.85)

It took about a second or perhaps a little less to diplay
each line above.

Hey w_tom what does IOW mean?

What does NID mean?

Where would I find the Verizon NID connector box so I
could connect the modem to it?
