Bridging Two Fios mi424wr routers (COAX)

Message 1 of 2

Hey guys i recently got a second mi424wr router off the bay for like 10$ so i could putting it in the livining room cause i was getting weak wifi signal there. I followed someones youtube video for the settings buy i still seem to be having problems. 


I seem to be disconnecting from the internet from both routers but internet does work at times just unstable. Also for the second router i have a two way coax splitter connected to it and the DVR. Siginal strength seem to be fine cause i made sure both router had internet and the DVR was working fine too. I dont know if i set up the second router wrong or what causing each router to randomly cut inernet on and off.


Anyone that have a setup like this could help me out please thank you.

If the internet is randomly cutting out, the WAN section of the second router probably has not been disabled.

You can have one one WAN connection.  If the WAN sections of both routers are active, they will fight for control of the WAN connection.


Following the instructions in part 2 of this FAQ:

Can I get an ethernet connection in a room with only coax?
