I just had fios triple play installed with two wireless TV boxes --- no easy way to run coax to one area where we have our TV located. Issue I have is that wireless TV box is getting a poor WiFi signal and pausing.

I have google WiFi to setup a mesh, but how to I get my Fios wireless TV box to connect to the google WiFi?

I tried turning WiFi off on the quantum router, connecting ONT to Google and Google to WAN port on Quantum without any luck.

Any tips are greatly appreciated.

Currently, the Mini boxes only work on a Verizon router or Moca extender.

It uses a secret SSID as well as some other features that are only supported by Verizon router.

Same issue, I have the new One boxes and have google Wifi in my house, Verizon needs a work around here, every household is using third party WiFi Solutions so Verizon should allow the One boxes to connect via a mesh network, I.e google
