6300 Verizon FIOS Change To Other Wireless Routers?

Jul 3, 2011

i am using verizon fios. It's pretty fast, in fact I just did a speedtest and here is the result.But I always want more. My laptop has Intel 6300, which supports up to 450Mb. But the Actiontec MI424WR only has 54Mb. It has nice features, but it uses MoCA and connects over coaxial cables, making it unnecessarily harder to use my own router. So I searched online and found tut about how to set the actiontec as a bridge and use your own router.

1) Wouldn't that lower the speed of the router of my choice? Say if I get a 450Mb router, but I need to connect it through the port on the Actiontec, which iirc is only 100Mb. Shouldn't that mean that the new router is forced to operate at only 100Mb max?

2) What is FIOS' top speed? I'm not even sure if it can go up to 450Mb.

3)I have no problems with this Actiontec currently, the only thing I'm looking for is more speed. Has anyone tried calling Verizon and see if they could switch the connection from coax to CAT5?

Cisco Routers :: Setting Up RV180 With Verizon FiOS?

Jun 7, 2012

Looking for setting up the RV180 behind the ActionTec MI424WR-GEN2.  At the same time I want to be able to VPN into the network and be able to access objects.
Ideal setup:
Verizon ActionTec modem is primary network (192.168.1.x)
RV180 is secondary network (192.168.2.x)
VPN to 192.168.2.x network from remote locations (client-to-gateway)
I've tried asking from Cisco Support and was given the "we don't suppor that configuration" line.  They want me to put it in front of the ActionTec FiOS modem/router in which case then Verizon will provide zero support for anything.Now, to add an extra twist, I do have STBs (Set-Top Boxes) connected to the Verizon FiOS modem/router but nothing special (i.e. no DVR or any stuff like that). How to get this thing up and running so that I can have remote folks VPN into the network?  We work with data that needs to remain encrypted during transmission, hence the VPN.I have forwarded ports 443 (TCP), 60443 (TCP), 500 (UDP) and 4500 (UDP) to the WAN IP of the RV180.  Network objects behind the RV180 cannot get past the router (it's in router, not gateway mode).  The RV180 can ping objects both on the WAN and LAN side, so it seems that the RV180 is the problem child.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Set Up New E4200 With Verizon FIOS

Dec 13, 2012

So, I bought an E4200 today. I don't know if it's v1 or 2. The box doesn't say v2, so I'm assuming it's v1.
I'm trying to set it up and I have the most recent version of the Mac OS operating system (10.8 Mountain Lion), so the setup CD is not compatible. I'm trying to do a manual set up and it seems that step 1 is to go to, which is the same IP that my FIOS router uses, so I go straight there instead of to the E4200.
Has anyone else been able to make this thing work with Mountain Lion and FIOS router?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 With Verizon Fios Actiontec?

Feb 8, 2012

I bought the Linksys E1200 for it's wireless N and the guest account. set up my new Linksys E1200 router to use for wireless N access rather that my Verizon Fios provided Actiontec (model M4124-WR Rev.C) which is only wireless G, and so that I can use the guest account. I have an ethernet cable running from one of the 4 ethernet ports on the E1200 to one of the 4 LAN ports on the Actiontec. I have the wireless turned off on the Actiontec, and have the E1200 set as wireless N signal seems to be working fine from the E1200, and I was able to turn on the guest account on the E1200 and "connect" to it on my iPhone 4, but then when I open Safari I can not connect to the internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Verizon FIOS Internet / TV Setup With WRT54G2?

Nov 29, 2009

I'm trying to configure my Linksys WRT54G2 router as my primary router and have my Actiontec just used for the my FIOS TV (eg VOD, widgets, guide).  I've googled many HOWTO's on how to do this but I just cant get it working.  So setup up will look like this in th end:

(DHCP Server)
(Wireless)        (Only TV)
Internet >> WRT54G2 >>> Actiontec >>> PC/Laptops
FIOS TV -------------
how to set this up?  I understand that the STB devices configured on my Actiontec routers is actually my TV receiver and currently configured with the following IP addresses: 
IP-STB1:Connection Type:    Coax 
IP-STB2:Connection Type:    Coax 
IP-STB3:Connection Type:    Coax
I have COAX Ethernet setup so everything is going through ethernet per Verizon phone tech.
Actiontec Firmware Version:
WRT54G2 = DDWRT firmware
I've tried the following HOWTO's to no avail.[URL]

Linksys Access Point :: E2500 Or E3200 - Best Option To Set Up Wireless With Verizon FiOS?

Dec 7, 2011

I have Verizon FiOs and their provided wireless router does not cover my entire house. There are plenty of dead spots throughout the house (house is 3500sq. ft.)
The FiOS comes into the basement so currently I have their router is set up in the basement. I wanted to shut off their FiOS wireless router and use my new E4200 router for wireless coverage. I am pretty sure the E4200 alone will not be able to handle my house. Most of the rooms of the house are already prewired with Ethernet cables. All those wires converge in the same closet in the basement, therefore moving the router is not an option.  I was thinking of putting whichever product you experts recommend in my office which is on the 2nd floor on one side of the house. This room does have Ethernet access. However it is currently at 50-60% signal (with FiOS). My bedroom which is on the opposite side of the house is at 10-20% signal (with FiOS).
I am looking to buy something to reach all the deadspots and have WIRED LAN access (if need be in the future). What is my best option? I have researched the RE1000, the WAP610N, and even some of the other routers (E2500 or E3200)  for hours. I am not an expert, and frankly after hours of reading, these technical terms of "range expanding" and "access points" are all sounding synonymous to me. I guess what I need is the range expansion on the same WiFi SSID my E4200 will provide (to cover all areas of my house), as well as an access point for connecting TVs, Xbox, or PCs in the future. 

1) RE1000

2) WAP610N

3) or a router to use as an access point/range expansion combo? E2500 or E3200?
Naturally, is the range capability better for Routers or the WAP610N or RE1000?

How To Turn Off WPA On Verizon FIOS

Jan 11, 2011

I have Verizon FIOS. I am using their Actiontec router. I turned on WPA2. All is working well. I wanted to turn it off to diagnose a problem with one device. I can see no way to turn it off. To turn it on you click WPA2. you put in an 8 digit "password" etc and it works. There seems to be no way to turn it off. Am I overlooking something? I tried deleting the password. but it gives you an error and remindes you the password needs to be 8 characters.

Verizon FIOS Modem - Default Gateway Is Not Available?

Feb 13, 2012

For some reason, whenever I go home (I'm in college right now), my internet goes haywire. It'll connect for about an hour or so when I first load it up, but after that, it refuses to connect at all. If I restart my modem (verizon fios modem), then it'll connect for about 5 minutesIf I run the troubleshooter, sometimes it doesn't detect anything wrong with it, and other times, it says "the default gateway is not available"[CODE]

Adding Second Wifi Router To Verizon Fios Mi424wr

I have a MI424WR for my Verizon Fios connection. The router is located downstairs, and I don't get Wifi in my bedroom upstairs. Is it possible to connect another WIFI router by ethernet to the MI424WR? Is there anyway where I can do it without the two router's wifi signals fighting each other? Is there a specific kind of router I should be looking for?

M1424-WR - Setting Up Repeater With Verizon FiOS Router?

Jan 7, 2012

Set up a repeater for their house to get a better signal in locations farther from their main router that is a Verizon Actiontec M1424-WR Rev. C. I am recommending that he get an old router (Linksys wrt54GL or E2000) that I can convert into a repeater with DDWRT firmware as a cheap solution, or with a purpose built Netgear or Linksys range extender repeater as a more $ solution.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 No Internet Connected To Verizon FIOS Actiontec Router

Jan 20, 2013

I connected EA6500 internet port to actiontec router provided by Verizon fios. I don't have any other way to connect as FIOS connection is coax to actiontec modem. I must take a drop from actiontec to internet port on EA6500.
With that said, I can't get EA6500 to work, it keeps saying no internet. The only way I can get it to work is when I set it to bridge mode. This makes my EA6500 a dumb switch/access point. I didn't spend $200 for a switch. I need to use advanced features offered by this router but I can't until this problem is fixed. I made sure I am running latest version of firmware (
I have reset my fios router as well as ea6500 to factory defaults multiple times.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Not Working After Verizon Modem Change?

Jun 24, 2012

I have a new Linksys E2100 that was working well with an old Verizon modem. Then recently that modem gave up the ghost and I was issued another one (Westel Model 6100G). I have no problems with internet connectivity when connecting directly from my harddrive to the Verizon modem. I am also not having trouble connecting to the Linksys routher as I am able to see my wireless connection with no problem. However, when I try to set up the connnection with the E2100 in the loop (yes, it's connected correctly) I no longer have internet access.I tried de-installing and re-installing the Linksys software (thinking maybe there was some new configuration that would be auto-detected with a new set-up), but this didn't work. I suspect that if the problem is with my Linksys router and not with my Verizon modem that there might be something that could be done to reconfigure something manually but I do not know enough about connections and wireless systems to trust myself not to mess something up.

Cisco Routers :: RV220W Losses WAN (FIOS Internet) To LAN Bandwidth

Sep 24, 2011

I Just got FIOS internet at Home with 43 Mbps down and 32 up (measured speed). I replaced the included router with my old reliable RV042 (V1) VPN router that I used with my old service in NY LI. This has been working very stable for  week or two, but I use my old 042 to remote desktop via VPN from my work, that was limited to maybe 9-10 Mbps (Home to office) way down from the 32 up I have now (the office has 80Mbps down). So I researched that the RV220W had a VPN speed that was much faster and I ordered one that I am trying this weekend.Out of the box, I plugged accessed and just clone the MAC at the WAN port to match the replaced FIOS router. Power cycle and surprise, no IP from FIOS!. After trying a number of things, I gave up and updated the firmware to the last, and that fixed this. I still need to clone the MAC to void calling Verizon FIOS, but at least I get IPs and Internet with no trouble.Next, I configured a couple forwards for two web servers. I found about the bug in this same forum and just used the rules instead. Working good so far.
So now I test WAN bandwidths, and I found all kind of trouble. With the old RV042 and similarly to the included Verizon router I can do steadily 43d/32u. Especially at night is quite stable in these numbers. When I went and move the cables to the RV220W (exact same set up) the speed went all over the map from 4d/8u to 43d/25u. If I power cycle the box, things tend to be stable again around 43d/25u. So, after a while being stable in these numbers I start trying things to improve the 25u that should be around 32u, and recover the missing 7 mbps. Not much I can think, so I just randomly enabled the QoS settings trying to reserve full BW for my tests, and I found just that enabling WAN QoS, and nothing else, no profiles or changes in the Priority Settings, I go up to 30u consistently over a number of tests. This do not affect  the down speed that is stable at 43 mbps. The surprising thing, is why this affect to the up speed when nothing else is going on in my network? and also where are the other 2 Mbps to complete the 32 Mbps that I can do with the RV042 (V1) or the cheap included router? In my opinion, if I don't use QoS, I should get full bandwidth to whatever application/computer that requests so, period.

Cisco Routers :: RVS4000 With Verizon DSL / Westell 7500?

Mar 18, 2012

We have an existing RVS4000 that has been coexisting peacefully with an ISP managed Netopia 2241N. That configuration has worked fine for over a year.The company is switching to using Verizon DSL instead. Verizon sent a Westell Model 7500 router. The router works fine with a standalone PC but, in none of the modes can I get internet connectivity through the Westell to the RVS4000. I can't ping the gateway or the DNS addresses and there is zero activity. I've tried the default "routed bridge" settings on the modem as well as the "bridge" settings. I can only get these working directly on a PC but as soon as I put the RVS4000 in between nothing seems to be getting through. I've tried turning off all Firewall features in both devices but hasn't worked.
There is a single, static IP. What specific modes and settings should be in the RVS4000 to communicate with the Westell Model 7500 in "bridge" mode?What adjustments should be made to the Westell to pass along the necessary ports that will be needed?Even though it is a business account, Verizon refuses any assistance beyond getting the unit functioning with a single computer and, if requested, setting their Westell to "bridge" mode.
