Became a FIOS customer about four months ago. New apartment install in a 1950s vintage building. Installer, who appeared very knowledgeable, suggested that I would have Wi-fi issues with thick cinder block walls, suggested I go with their MoCA-based Home Network Solution for an extra $10/mo. Quite happy with it, and I've decided to toss my 3-5 yr old Orbi Router and ActionTec MoCA hardware that I used in my former home with Optimum service.
Only question - my Windows 11 computer which is hard wired into the E3200 extender takes about one minute from boot to find the ethernet connection. I have a VOIP phone on the other phone which remains uninterrupted.
Perhaps a dhcp issue?
I have had this same issue since the update to 3.0 firmware months ago. Don’t know if it’s any help for engineering but it’s just with Ethernet connected devices (PlayStation 5 and Xbox) to the extender. I have tried static IP, opening ports, and even put the PS5 in DMZ. Nothing works and takes about 1-2 minutes to get online. Also have issues with them in rest mode doing auto updates.
Sorry, I just saw the question. There are two devices plugged into the E3200, a Windows 11 computer, and a VOIP phone system. The E3200 stays powered on, as does the phone. The phone never loses connectivity, but the computer takes a minute to get a network connection (from windows desktop) consistently upon start up.
