I have linksys wrt610n router and my isp is verizon fios. I am trying to connect the linksys router with the verizon router but it doesnt connect to the internet when trying to setup with my laptop. I can connect to the internet with only the verizon router which only supports 11g with wireless adapter from linksys but cant connect to the linksys router with the wireless adapter. Can anyone help fix the problem?
You should probably start here:
Do I really need the Actiontec router?
There are lots of ways to use your own router.
I have the verizon cable with on demand and dvr support in the box which one do I do? WAN to LAN or LAN to LAN?
That is a decision you will have to make....
"More Fiber" did a nice job of summarizing here:
"The Actiontec will work behind your own router. You have the folllowing options.
1) Connect a cat5 cable from a LAN port on your router to the WAN port on the Actiontec. You will want the two routers on different subnets (e.g. yours on 192.168.0.x and the Actiontec on 192.168.1.x). The Actiontec will be double-natted, but that won't matter for the STBs.
2) Connect a cat5 cable from a LAN port on your router to a LAN port on the Actiontec. Disable DHCP server in the Actiontec. The Actiontec will be functioning only as a switch and a MOCA bridge. In this configuration everything is on one subnet. This is the only configuration that will work if you use VZ's PC based Media Manager for media sharing."
Bottom Line: http://www.dslreports.com/faq/15992
WAN-to-LAN keeps Guide and VOD (easier)
LAN-to-LAN keeps MediaShare DVR
You should probably review these guides until you feel comfortable making the necessary changes. The changes aren't difficult, but can render your FIOS services temporarily unavailable if you are not careful.
