But unfortunately last two weeks I've been having very weird problems. Whenever I look at the "Connected Devices Log" on my R8000 I see a new Mac ID: 40:B4:F0:08:7F:CD which is 100% not mine. In fact its Juniper Network's device..so I'm guessing its downstream device owned by Verizon. It starts grabbing lan ip addresses like crazy 192.168.1.4, 192.168.1.5, 192.168.1.10 etc and therefore my router runs out of any DHCP address and none of my own devices like iPhone/iPad can connect
However if I disconnect "Router’s LAN Port 4 to the Actiontec LAN port 4" (which was suggested by the Step 21 of the bridge guide for Guide/VOD to work) everything starts working and that mac id no longer shows up under my Connected Devices Log.
This started happening once the Verizon started using 100.11.x.x in Philadelphia... For about two weeks or so every time I visited to 'speedtest.net' my location was showed as "Wichita Kansas" or whenever I visited eBay it showed that I was located somewhere in "Virginia" even though I'm from Philly 😕
So I'm guessing someone/Verizon messed up when they moved/started using new ip range in Philly.
