    First thing's first- I'm going to assume you're referring to the Cablevision within the tri-state area (New York / New Jersey / Connecticut); if so then you should have Optimum Online, which is their internet service.. unless you have a business account with them of some sort?

    What type of bundle do you have with these guys? If it's the triple play then yeah, you have their Optimum Voice service too, which is VoIP. Otherwise, you'll need to purchase a VoIP package from either CV or 3rd party (e.g. Vonage, etc.).

    Hello Road Runner, I have a question. I'm trying to connect to the access point, how do I check to see if I even have a wireless nic card? I have 2 adapters, one is the 1394 net adapter and the other is my local area connection. I'm not seeing any wireless connections in my networks, Thanks,
