Thank you for your post. I have a AEBS that worked VERY well when I had cable, that is now collecting dust on my switch to FIOS. My wireless experience with the MI424WR is unacceptable. I do not want to interfere with my FIOS TV or menus but the idea to disable the wireless on the actiontec and using my own router for wireless seems like a good one.
Without endorsing a specific or frowned upon action, could a site be suggested that would step someone of moderate skill through these actions?
Snail, is it possible that this supposed Actiontech "bottleneck" would cause my wireless connection pings to occasionally spike up to ~3000(or timeout)?
I'm beginning to come to the same conclusion as my old Linksys WRT54G never gave me this problem.
I was getting 20.1Mbits down, 4.5Mbits when I got the service. Now it's 14Mbits down, 4Mbits up.
I was getting about the same results as bullfrog posted on page 2.
I am not streaming anything, uploading, or downloading. I dont need any optimizers because I should be getting the ADVERTISED speeds without ANY help. I scanned my PC again 2 days ago with AVG, Spybot, and Malwarebytes. All clean. To me it looks like Verizon-end problem, especially that when you have several people reporting the same/similar issues.
