Connecting Fios Extender Ethernet

Message 1 of 2
(449 Views)

I want to connect my extender to my Fios G3100 using an ethernet cable. I’d like to avoid drilling any holes so would it be possible to connect to the extender from the L1 or L2 spot on the ONT box ? Or is it only going to work if I connect it to the router

L1 and L2 are plain old telephone lines. Even if there are extra Ethernet ports on the ONT, you cannot use them because you need a NAT above your home network.

 

If you run out of weird options, E3200 also has wireless backhaul feature with a G3100. Have you given that a try?
