PPP Username and Password

Message 1 of 2 (7,870 Views)

I am trying to set up another DSL modem for my home. It's the Actiontec GT724WGR modem. When I try to set up the connection, it is asking for my DSL username and password. I was just wondering if anyone can help me find out what those are?

In some Verizon areas, such as mine, the Username and Password can be any combination of Username and Password. Often times with Verizon's modems, the pre-set "newdsl" profile will work just fine out of the box. Anyhow, the PPPoE Username and Password is the same thing that is used to reach your Verizon E-Mail, for the most part. Other than that, give Verizon's Tech Support a call. They should be able to at least give you the Username.
