I am planning on getting my own high speed router but need to keep the old Verizon router since I have Fios and TV. Reading these instructions and it says to use the new router and connect the old Verizon router after so it goes ONT - my router - Verizon router- STB.
What would be the biggest difference from a set up like this: ONT - Verizon router - split to my router and STB?
Ok. To receive the maximum speed of your subscription, your router needs to be the primary router. Do you have a Verizon DVR that needs to be accessed remotely? If not, you can do a layer 2 bridge (LAN<-->LAN) between Actiontec and your router. You need to turn off all layer 3 function (disable Broadband Connection and DHCP server) on Actiontec, so it only acts as a layer 2 switch and MoCA adapter.
If you need to remotely access your DVR programming, there is no known simple solution.
