New router setup

Message 1 of 2
(1,546 Views)

I curently have 50/50 Fios Internet Service only (no tv). This is currently connected via coax to the Fios Quantom G1100 router. I will be upgraing to 75/75 and In order to get this speed, a tech will be coming out to replace the ONT.

 

I currently do not have my own router but my intention is to purchase my own Router (Asus). When the tech comes to replace the ONT, can I ask that he change the ONT from coax to Ethernet and then connect the ONT to the Fios Quantom G1100 router using Ethernet? That way, when i purchase  the new router, all i have to do is release the ip address from the G1100 and then connect my newly purchased router.

Yes you can do that. I am sure they will accommodate your request. They may swap you over anyway. But just tell him what you want.
