I just installed FIOS with new FIOS TV One Box.  I was told that due to the boxes I couldn't use the ORBI system.  Is there another mesh network that would work as well.  I have several spots of weak wifi due to the distance from the router.  Thanks!

That’s correct there is no option for wireless connection with the new mini box unless you use the Wifi from the FiOS router. There is a hidden SSID and password that it connects to. 

You can still use the Orbi as long as you hardwire all the mini boxes. Just login to your FiOS router and turn off the wireless and set up you Orbis in AP mode.
