@Kwag,

For 3 weeks my DSL connection has been flawless and always working.
Today I'm using 56k POTS, due to what Verzion says is a defective
DSL modem I miss VOIP phone calls, getting calls while working
on the Net. My question, is there diagnostic software that can help me
locate the problem i.e., modem, router, dsl line, etc. Verizon is over
nighting another modem (could also be bad). I need software tools
to help narrow these problems Westell doesn't seem to be very reliable.
The go down so quickly and Verizon warned me if I get my own modem
they won't support me via their tech support

Hi BP,

Can you borrow a neighbour's DSL modem, and connect it to your line
That way you can find out if the problem is your modem, or the PCM/ADSL circuitry to your house.
If the modem connects, you know the problem is your modem.
DSL accounts are not tied to a specific line. Authentication is done like PPP (point-to-point protocol), so your neighbour's modem will log on from your phone line too.

Edit: In the mean time, how about using one of your neighbour's open access points

Hi BP,

Haven't tried it in a very long time, but I've been told it's not as flexible as the "aircrack" tools. I think that packet injection is not possible in airsnort, because "aireplay" is not available for Windows. Only for Linux.
