Anyone have experience setting up a home WiFi network
(using the MN-500 Wireless Base Station) with SBC as
their Broadband ISP? I have a 5100 Speedstream DSL
modem. Just wondering whether there are any special
configuration settings that I should be aware of before
tackling this upgrade?

I also have sbc dsl
all you need is your user name and password.
be sure to set it up as "PPPoE" type of WAN.
it should set up without any problems.

There are a few ISPs which have issues with the way the username is entered,
including SBC, Yahoo and Ameritech, as cited in this Microsoft Knowledge
