Very strange. I'm in Pittsburgh as well, but using the 220.127.116.11 router.... however haven't noticied any outages.
By chance did this outage last long? If it really was one of Verizon's core routers it should be fixed quickly.
My FIOS is down as well, no internet or TV. I'm getting no signal to my ONT and they're sending out a tech to look at it tomorrow apparently, but the issue seems to exist outside of my home with a fiber line, so who knows how long this will take...
