I have FIOS internet, phone and tv and an apple wireless network and it works awesome! I have the Westell router from Verizon, which you need for FIOS TV, but I just turned wireless off on the Westell and set up my Time Capsule wireless router in bridge mode and it works awesome. I have a macbook pro, macbook, XP desktop and HP networked printer an have had no conflicts. Love the speed of FIOS!
If you have any questions on my setup, let me know.
I joined the forum to answer this question.
The issue with the "bridged" mode setup as described here is that this limits your ability to use "Back to my Mac." If you're using MobileMe, and you're looking to get back to your desktops and your time capsule shares, this setup does get very complex.
Based on my research, many people have had success moving to Ethernet (or using MOCA) and putting the Verizon router behind the Airport. This would fix the problem with MobileMe. However, I'll warn you, I'm an Intenet engineer, and I found the configuration almost too complex for me to handle, primarily due to the "weirdness" of the actiontec advanced configs.
So, let me net it out for you. No MobileMe, then you're great. Go for it! Get their DVR and bridge your time capsule and you're set. MobileMe and no Verizon DVR (you have a TivoHD) no problem, tell them to use the Ethernet when you install and install your Time Capsule instead. Verizon DVR and MobileMe = Complex configuration, but workable (go to broadbandreports.com and look for setting the Actiontec in "bridge mode" and looking for "VLAN" in the same thread. You'll need the VLAN setup working to make it all work.
I gave up on the Verizon DVR box myself, and went to a TivoHD (with cablecards). I get all the HD channels, lose the "on demand", but pick up the Tivo features and get a less complex setup. For me that was the best tradeoff, as I don't want to spend my time and energy configuring my house internet stuff!
Anyone who says you cannot use your own router and have t.v. could not be more wrong. I currently use an AirPort Extreme with FiOS TV and it works completely fine.
My set-up includes,
Line-in to Airport, airport to the NIM box(i believe its called), along with that feeing a coax to a huge splitter that takes the signal all over my house.
No problems other than turning my router on and off every now and then to get on demnd to work again.
Hope i helped,
