Google WiFi and Fios - Watch Live TV from FiOS app

Message 1 of 4

Hi All

Just upgraded to 1GB speed and now have the following setup with the Quantum Router setup as a bridge (disabled wifi, dhcp...):

ONT -> WAN Google Wifi LAN -> LAN FiOS Quantum Router

The Quantum still has the coax so it can feed my two set top boxes.

All seems fine and I can see all devices in my house, including my set top boxes, through the Google WiFi app.

However, now I notice that when I try to watch live TV on the FiOS app, I only get a limited number of channel options as it says I am not connected to my home network.

Has anyone experienced this and found a rememdy?

I imagine the solution is to enable wifi on the Quantum router and connect to that network only when I want to watch live local TV from the app.  Hoping that is not the case though. 

Hope to hear from some other options.

Thanks.

I believe app is looking for STBs on the same network.
So if subnet of WIFI is not the same as that for STB, that is probably the reason.
