Linksys router with Actiontec configuration

Message 1 of 2

Hello everyone,

I know that this topic has been talked and posted about forever but I just cant seem to get this to work.  I'm trying to configure my Linksys WRT54G2 router as my primary router and have my Actiontec just used for the my FIOS TV (eg VOD, widgets, guide).  I've googled many HOWTO's on how to do this but I just cant get it working.  So setup up will look like this in th end:

                 (DHCP Server)

                     (Wireless)        (Only TV)

Internet >> WRT54G2 >>> Actiontec >>> PC/Laptops


                    FIOS TV -------------


Does anyone know how to set this up?  I understand that the STB devices configured on my Actiontec routers is actually my TV receiver and currently configured with the following IP addresses: 


Connection Type:    Coax


Connection Type:    Coax


Connection Type:    Coax


I have COAX Ethernet setup so everything is going through ethernet per Verizon phone tech.


Actiontec Firmware Version:

WRT54G2 = DDWRT firmware


I've tried the following HOWTO's to no avail.


Please someone help!!!

Just to confirm...... your network set up looks like:


ONT----(ethernet)--->Linksys------>Linksys LAN Port to Actiontec LAN Port--------->Actiontec coax to STB's.
