I´ve problem to set up a 2. WIFI Router

Message 1 of 2

Hi togehter


I´m a custumer from Verizon Vios and I´ve the Verizon 9100EM router.  So far so fine 🙂


I live in one condo and I need a second WIFI router because I need a stronger WIFI signal. I buy allready one Netgear router WGR614 v8 and I install allready the newest FW V1.1.24_14.0.43NA on my Netgear router, but my Netgear router and the Verizon router don´t work together... The Netgear router have allready the WDS feature.


I´m not really a network specialist and I need your help. Need I a diverent rounter, or have I to change somethink on the settimgs?


Thank you very much for your help. I appreciate that really 🙂

The Verizon FIOS Router will work with your Netgear Router.


It can be configured many different ways, here is one way:


Configure Netgear to use a Static address of so that it will not conflict with the Verizon Route on

Disable DHCP Server on Netgear

Disable Wireless on Verizon Router

Connect Lan Port 1 of Verizon Router to Lan Port 1 of the Netgear


This will make your Netgear Router operate like a switch and wireless access point.  All of the Routing, Firewall, and DHCP will be handled by the Verizon Router.
