dsl to fios
I am hoping someone can answer these questions before tuesday.
I am upgrading from verizons DSL to FIOS and as much searching as I have done, I can't seem to find answers to these two questions.
First, I am told that it will take from four to six hours for the workers to install, whatever it is (besides) a battery backup to complete the job?
Does this mean that they are going to have to rewire all of my phone jacks?
Do they have to run FIOS cables to every room (5) that has a phone jack or does FIOS run on the same lines as DSL?
My second question involves my two pc's and the netgear equipment.
I run two pc's .. one from the typical westell modem which is also the one connected to the netgear router.
The second pc uses a usb dongle.
Will I have to replace both of these "G" netgear (802.11g 54mbps) pieces of equipment to run at the higher FIOS speed?
I understand that I will receive a FIOS modem but will that modem replace the westell modem "AND" the router that broadcast the signal to the other pc with the dongle?
Will the dongle that I have (802.11g USB Dongle) run at the higher FIOS speed?
Any help will be Greatly appreciated!
Oh yeah .. Is FIOS REALLY better than DSL?
