Requiring customers to create an account at twitter in order to contact tech support - that's one of the funniest things I ever heard!

Hey guys,
 
Here is a workaround I just tried. It does not enable MAC filtering but at least all my devices are now connected to Wi-Fi. Unfortunately some of them connected to 2.4 GHz rather than 5 because with that feature enabled you can no longer to choose where to connect. I will probably use it until Verizon release an update with MAC filtering back or downgrade my firmware to the previous release (I created a ticket with their tech support though I doubt about them to move a finger in order to help customers.
 
So here is the workaround which worked for me (and not necessarily will work for you)))))
 
1. Open this page
Wireless Settings -> Advanced Security Settings -> Other Advanced Wireless Options
https://myfiosgateway.com/#/wireless/transmission
 
2. Click Yes if prompted
 
3. At the very top enable "Self-Organizing Network Enabled"
 
After applying the setting you will have single SSID for both 2.4 and 5 GHz and client should prefer 5 unless its signal is too weak. No configurable threshold at this point unfortunately.

This is a huge CROCK!!!! Can't access my router even after a factory restore.   I get the {word filter avoidance} about back ceriticate.  Try to go to page anyway and I just loop back to the warning page.
