Time capsule with Fios

Message 1 of 2
(4,358 Views)

I use Verizon Fios for everything in my house.  I have been trying to install Apple Time Capsule and keep running into walls.  I go back and forth between Verizon and Apple help/support.  So frustrated.  Everyone tells me something different.  Bridge this/bridge that.  Can't be done, etc.  The last word I got was that because my tv is also connected that Verizon router can't be bridged.  So frustrated.  I think I said that.  Anyone have a suggestion?

Turn off wireless on the Verizon router.  Leave it supplying DHCP and don't mess with anything else.

Set Airport / Time Capsule in "bridge" mode and assign it a static IP on the 192.168.1.x  network (I suggest 192.168.1.254)

Turn off DHCP on the Airport (let verizon router supply it)

Configure Airport to be a wireless access point as well and apply security to the wireless

Connect WAN port of the Airport to one of the open LAN ports on the Verizon router.
