My recommendation is to make Verizon fix the problem with the DSL.  It
should work, period.  Assuming the problem is NOT in your configuration,
but in theirs, this is their problem, and until they fix it, they should
not be paid.  I'd tell them to fix it and call you when they're done.

I had a machine on DSL in Colorado for about 6 years, and for the first
6 months USWest (now qwest) had constant routing issues pop up.  I just
picked up the phone about once a week and stayed on the 1-800 line for
an hour at a time while they fixed it.  Eventually, things settled down
and it was a rock solid stable connection for most of the rest of that
time.

You shouldn't have to pay $500.00 a month just to get a working
connection.
