I spent over a week trying to connect my FIOS One Mini to my FIOS Quantum Gateway (G1100). During this time I spoke to 3 different senior technicians on the phone, 2 technicians through the chat, and a physical visit from a FIOS technician. None knew what the cause of my issue was. Fortunately, I am a savvy IT technician and did not accept any of the responses.
You must be broadcasting your 5Ghz network on a FIOS Quantum Gateway router for the FIOS One Mini to connect using the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) feature.

Good Luck! The technology seems solid, if you can ever achieve connectivity.

Trying to figure this out. I just got the Fios TV one and 4 Fios TV Minis. I have my G3100 router in a place with no Coax, so I attached Coax to my A3200 wifi extender. That did the trick for getting my Fios TV one up and runnig, and it seems to work as advertised. I am however unable to get my FIos TV minis to connect. I have tried both Wifi and Coax, but the units (all four of them), stops with error code 8205-1. Message says, please check for coax cable is connected to Fios TV one (which it is). Looking at my G3100 setup, it reports no COAX (which is correct), but since the Extender being hooked up worked for the One, i figured it would work for the minis as well. Suggestion for how to go about this. I really do not want to move my extender vs my main unit since I finally figure a place for their location after years of bad wifi.
