In the days of my (soon-to-be-former) DOCSIS cable modem, it had its own IP/URL (usually http://192.168.100.1) which served a set of status & log pages that could be viewed in a browser. I know the FiOS (Actiontec) router has it's own IP and HTTP interface — been there, done that. Does the ONT have something similar? If so, is it of any use?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The ONT has information that can be accessed by Verizon, and also sports some firmware which can be upgraded. From your end, the ONT is essentially a layer 2 device (meaning, you cannot see it. Provides conversion between mediums on Layer 1, and offers a link over physical medium from A to B via Layer 2). Anything you have access to see is available from the FiOS router.
