I'm getting DSL!!

lol, pleases feel free to laugh at me!! Yes, we currently have dial up, becuase we pay per min, which is,like...less than $15 a month lol. well, my new boss wants to set me up to work from home a few days per week. YIPEE!!! I'm super excited about that!! Anyway, he has MAJOR ADDH and keep walking away when I ask him a question. Is it hard to install yourself, anyone know?! Comcast has that option. When I told me boss...he said he woulddo it, but do I need to but the starter package (electronics is what we do, and normally do our own wiring). I dunno, I would like to placemy order ASAP so I can start working at home next week like we talked about...anyone know how long it takes to get my materials and stuff!? Thanks!!

i dont have a "landline" in the traditional sense - i'ts voice over cable - so all my long-distance calls are non-billable


just call comcast and ask - they were really helpful when i had to do it


do you have cable tv from comcast now??


if you do -they can just do the same thing that they did for my home office


i have home cable/home internet/home phone for personal use


then i have separate phone # and internet on a separate bill that i just expense

DSL is NOT the same has high-speed cable...its in essence a faster dial-up....goes through phone lines still...that's what we have because we have DirecTV and not cable....you will get a modem from your DSL provider, sometimes you have to buy or rent one from them (they usually have refurb ones at lower cost)

I had AT&T yahoo DSL and loved it, but we recently moved and had to switch to Comcast because DSL is not available where we live now. I hate Comcast. I wish I had my DSL back.

i love my comcast bundle - sometimes it's hit and miss with the customer service but i dont call them that much - mostly i like the convenience of the bundling and i loooove that i only pay $36 for phone b/c i am on phone with toronto, london and montreal all-the-fckin-day and i dont pay "long distance" for those calls...

sorry we got sidetracked....does that answer your question about DSL....just contact your provider and let them know what you need :)  you'll probably just end up getting Comcast high speed internet through your cable....it will be easier if you already get cable through them...

if your company is paying for it, have Comcast set it up for you.  alternatively, it is not hard to set up. instructions are pretty easy to follow, did the DSL hookup for my parents when they got it.
