We just switched to FIOS from Cox and my Network Extender which we use to get Verizon cell phone service in my house isn't working. Specifically, the WAN light doesn't even come on. I spent 30 minutes last night talking to a Support person, and although very nice we couldn't get it working. Eventually, his last suggestion was to change some of the router settings and open some ports. He gave a list of IP addresses (188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, and 18.104.22.168) and Ports, 53, 500, 4500, and 52428. I've tried randomly working with these, but it still isn't working. Does anyone have any more suggestions?
Dr_Nyet, thanks for trying the steps that we recommended. When the LED status light indicator isn't coming on, this is an indication that something is definitely wrong. Click http://vz.to/1b2xAtX and follow the steps to enable ports and verify the WAN connection.
A Network Extender uses standard IPSec ESP VPN ports to make its connection through the Internet. It shouldn't require any special port configuration. In those rare instances in which the Network Extender is unable to connect to the Verizon Wireless network, you may need to open ports 500, 4500, 53,and 52428. Contact your ISP, Network Administrator or switch/router/firewall manufacturer for detailed instructions on how to open ports on your equipment.

Reversed the ethernet cord. It doesn't seem to sit well in any port in the router. SYS light is flashing magenta. GPS light is blue. WAN light is still off.
