Sorry for how long it took to do this reply, but I've been buried at work.
Anyway, here's what I did when I was using them as an ISP:

Find a Windows box.  Use that to dial into their network for the first time.
It will create a text file with your account information. Print this file, and
you'll have all the info you need, I think.  If not, you can get the rest from
the windows machine while it is dialed in: Run winipcfg (Under Win95/98 only,
NT doesn't have this), and view all information.  You'll get more than you
need, I would think.

Hope this is of some use.

I'll leave my opinions of USW as ISP or as telco to myself, this time.  People
on the list know how I feel about them from past inquiries and responses :)
