Coincidentally, I setup a friend tonight on this. It's a sham. All of the=
crap about Yahoo was basically to funnel you into Yahoo's services, like=
research reports and online games. It offered to download a path to the=
PPPoE software; I didn't do it and it still worked just fine. Technical=
ly it seemed exactly the same as before.
Roy - go to https://sbcreg.sbcglobal.net/. It'll ask you if you have an ex=
isting account. Enter it in there. Follow the instructions (you might h=
ave to change your DSL login) but skip all of the junk that says "Would y=
ou like a Yahoo Wallet?" and you should be fine.
