How do you hook up a DSL connection to your computer?

the actual physical connection is simple, almost every DSL provider will sell/lease you a modem, and probably install it, either free or for a price. The DSL modem connects either to your phone line, a fiber optic line (if your in a large city) or most commonly a coaxal line, just like your tv. That modem, also connected to the power outlet, is then connected to your computer via a jumper Ethernet line, commonly Cat5e.

You could also connect a router to the modem instead, and then connect your computer to the router via another Cat5e line, or Wifi. This is only required when you are connecting many computers to the same internet connection, or when you really need Wifi for a laptop or remote computer.

How much commission does an ATT rep make?

They have pretty much slashed commissions in half for Sales Reps for 2009. In 2008, they were paying a certain percentile of the features you sold. For example, if you achieved your goal for the month in features, they would pay out 60% of what you sold. The more you surpassed your goal the higher a percentage you would keep up to 80%. So in other words....if you sold $3,000 in features for the month, you just put $2400 in your pocket AND that's just part of the commission. You also get paid for activations/upgrades and accessories you sell. With activations/upgrades, the higher the rate plan you sell, the more you get paid. Accessories are pretty much extra change in your pocket. They really only give you about 4% of your quota which is usually about $4000-$5000. Ofcourse both are paid out on a tier basis so the more you sell past your quota the higher per opp you get paid. BUUUUUUT like I said, they pretty much slashed commissions in half for 2009. I guess its a normal business practice for AT&T to change their commission tables. For 2009, activations/upgrades pay out the same along with accessories. Its in the Features department where they stuck it to its Reps. Now instead of receiving a certain percentage of what you sell, there is this thing they call a "Bucket". The bucket contains $450 bucks. If you reach 100% of your quota, you get the whole bucket. Example: your quota is $3000? You meet your goal so you get $450. That's right....FOUR HUNDRED FIFTY!!! Not $2400 like you would have made if you were on the previous commission table. They have also included "CFT" Customer Feedback Tool in your commission. CFT is pretty much a random automated customer survey which customers get via telephone after you have helped them. Any account you access has a chance of getting a call. If you get a bad score or don't reach 75% satisfaction, you are not paid out Excellence (you reached 150% of your goal). So yeah...oh yeah and to top it off, AT&T seems to be oblivious to a National Recession. They keep slashing commissions in little ways AND they either keep quotas where they were last year or they keep increasing them. They have also increased the percentage you have to reach in regards to your monthly quota. It has always been that if u reached 80% you were good. Heck! If you didnt even make that you were good! They really didnt enforce performance requirements. Now they want you to reach 100% in EVERYTHING! And if you don't....there are 4 levels of discipline. If you fall short of reaching 100% of Total Opps, Features or get a write up. If you reach Level 4 Discipline...youre fired!!! Yup...word has it that the company is just trying to get rid of its tenure staff since they get paid alot more than new hires. So yeah....if you wanna be a Sales Rep I would reconsider if you were looking at AT&T.

What did the internet do for us?

It has given us more time and location insensitive communication, purchasing, finance management, work, and information gathering. Plus greater access to pooled knowledge and increasingly tailored services and products.

However, the internet has not completely ruled out the relevance of time and location. While we can now receive and respond to messages from friends and family regardless of where and what they're doing, there are still many things we can only read on paper, like old books. We now have better access to pooled knowledge. Think a pair of ski boots look awesome? Well now through websites like you can find out if they are as awesome as they look by reading what actually owners of the boots think. This type of public feedback is forcing companies to provide us with better products.

While we can order shoes online we have not yet perfected the service of ensuring the shoes are a good fit. Somethings still require us to be there in person.

Specific services include:

  • Internet banking (no longer need to be there in person or call during business hours to change something with your bank account)
  • Online purchasing (no longer need to be there in person or call during business hours to purchase something)
  • Increased pooled knowledge (no longer dependent on a friend or relative telling you if something is good)
  • More and better products (as customers can better communicate their needs companies can now better tailor products and recognize demand for the creation of new products)
  • Time insensitive communication (email, Facebook)
  • Interests shaped newsfeeds (you no longer need to skim newspapers to find stories that interests you. Now you can tell Google to send you stories that match you specified interests)
  • Speeder access to information (Google search engine)

How can you connect both ADSL and cable?

This answer is really dependant on your use. the first answer is clearly easiest if you have only one computer.

It doesn't matter. You could connect one USB & one Ethernet, Both Ethernet, Both USB. They have nothing to do with each other so they can be connected however you like.


If you have more than one device (Most of us do. PC, Xbox, Wii, BlueRay Player, Server, Iphone, Etc...) you will need to utilize an appliance. These appliances use Ethernet, and can only use one connection at a time. it is designed for fail-over. Another appliance can load balance but a single stream goes out a single connection and you can not exceeded the bandwidth of a single connection because your source ip needs to be the same. These provide a level of redundancy for traffic requests from inside the network.

There is minimal or no redundancy if you have an internal resource you need to access from remote.
