You could bridge your FIOS router and use your own router if you want to, this allows for the FIOS service and TV guide to continue working with your own router behind the FIOS provided router.

FIOS is awesome, super reliable speeds and incredibly fast. My cousin has it, I wish I could live at his house just to use his interwebs. haha

That's our plan. We have a WRT 610N and a pair of UBNT high powered Nanostations to push wifi through our house.

I asked about that just a little while back and someone shared this awesome link with me:

http://www.dslreports.com/faq/16077

Off topic, but since there are so many FiOS customers here is anyone else not actually getting the symmetrical upload speeds? On speedtest.net mine are always coming out to like 28/4 and I'm supposed to have 25/25?

EDIT: The Verizon website's speedtest shows 30/8, LOL.

Called Verizon yesterday about my upload speed and they shipped me a new router. Same model but with a newer firmware update. Problem solved:



I'm not complaining about the extra 5 mbps download either. =)

Do you know which router you got? Actiontec? Westell?

Actiontec MI424-WR Rev D

Same as I had before. Verizon tried to move from this one to the Westell, but as I understand it was very problematic. They moved back to the Actiontec. I wish they would get a good wireless N router soon... maybe I would even consider ordering their 100 Mbps service then ..... if the price comes way down on it too lol.

I have the Westell A90-9100EM15-10 Rev. B. It has been fairly stable for me and has a large NAT table. I wish it had Wireless N, but I just turned my other 5 GHz wireless N router into a switch.

It would have been nice if you got the Rev. F version of the Actiontec or Rev. G (which is for 150/35 Mbps customers iirc). It has wireless N, but I don't know if it has 5 GHz.

Hmmm that would have been nice. I used to work at a Verizon Plus (Retail wireless + FiOS store) and still have a friend there. He might be able to find one. I could always hang a wireless N router of my choice off of it, but that costs money, lol.

So we ordered FIOS tonight. Went with the Tier 3 Triple Play. 35/35 internet, UltimateHD TV with Epix and Showtime on 4 TVs, and Digital Voice. Installer won't be out for another 8 days, so I guess they're pretty busy these days.

Cox must have figured out our upcoming betrayal because my internet is also suddenly much slower than usual.
