Hello, I recently signed up for FIOS and I am trying to setup my home network with the Verizon Actiontec router as bridge and my personal Netgear router as the primary. We are currently setup with a COAX connection from the ONT to the Actiontec router.
I used the following instructions here:
to setup as a bridge, and all my computers now have access to the internet without problem. They are connected to my netgear router.
During the steps above I had configured my netgear router to have an IPaddress of 192.168.1.50 to avoid any conflicts and I set the DCHP range to begin at 192.168.1.110.
Then I found out my IMG and VOD is no longer working so I continued my research and found the following:
To begin this new configuration I found, I connected my Netgear port 1 to Actiontec WAN, and kept Actiontec Port1 to Netgear WAN(working from earlier). I also connected a laptop to Actiontec Port2 (used to access the actiontec config) and I have a desktop connected to Netgear port2 (netgear config/how all the other pcs are going to be setup)
I started those steps from point 7) since I already had my internet working (first part just described what I had already done to get the internet to work)
All the steps above seemed to be working well, until I hit step 16), when I hit Apply, my actiontec dissapears from my laptop. I tried 192.168.1.1, no avail, only way to get it back is to reset the Actiontec router and they just apply the changes from the first instructions so atleast I have internet in the house.
Any advice/help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I'm wondering if you managed to successfully bridge the Rev I. MI424WR? I have the same model and unable to get the bridge mode to work. It seems all the guides online are for older models (Rev D, E, F) or will lose VOD functionality.

I would also like to find out if you were able to configure your Revision I router as a bridge. I'm trying to do the same thing and also having no luck. I may have to run Cat 5 from the ONT to my home office which is not something I really want to be doing if there is another way.

According to these guys, they're saying its impossible to remove the Network Bridge between the Ethernet/Coax / BroadBand (Coax) bridge on the Rev. I routers .
I"m trying to do it I ended up with an inaccessible router as well. Kinda of annoying and it seems so far the only solution is option #2 but I want to avoid the double NATing involved in a double router configuration.
