That is a Fios router issue.

when you are connected via WiFi you must know the login and password for your Fios network. If you directly connect there should be no problem on getting on the network.

 

your router assigns ip addresses. And trust me it will be able to add up to 250 add on devices. If it doesn’t you have a bad router.

call 1-800-VERIZON to get a new one.

Can other devices connect to your wifi?

Have you been able to connect these devices to other WIFI networks?

Network failed to send an IP address is a “router problem”
