FIOS Wireless Modem Upgrade from B/G to B/G/N?

Status: Acknowledged
by paulrburns on ‎11-11-2010 01:43 PM

Are there any plans to upgrade the FIOS wireless modem hardware to support the N wireless standard? The additional range of the N standard would allow for much better wireless coverage throughout my house. It would also be a huge time saver during those times when I wirelessly backup my laptop to my home office desktop PC.

To Verizon, about http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Verizon-80211N-FiOS-Router-Coming-This-Summer-107918

 

#1 What's the hold up?

 

#2 Are you (Verizon) promising something you can't deliver?

 

#3 I am not saying the OP is confused the difference between a DSL Modem Combo and Router with a RJ-45 WAN port and a Moca Port (for use on FIOS)

The Actiontec Rev F supports 802.11n and has been out as early as May (I've had mine since I ordered service in July).

So the real question here is how do you get a revision F router? I have a rev. D and the Verizon customer service reps I've spoken with all deny that a 802.11N option exists.

At shis point its a model G router.
