PostPosted: Thu Sep 14, 2006 9:41 pm    Post subject: Will Vonage work with Verizon's 15mps FIOS? Reply with quote Back to top

I am considering switching from TimeWarner's 6mps internet service to Verizon's FIOS 15 mps service. I want to make sure I can still use Vonage. I'm not sure how to setup things up.

I currently have my cable modem connected first to a Linksys RT31P2-VD router with two phone ports, to which my phone connects. Then the RT31P2-VD onnects to a wireless router.

Verizon's 15 mps service would come with a free wireless router, the Actiontec MI424-WR.

Would I simply connect the Actiontec MI424-WR from Verizon to the Linksys RT31P2-VD?

You could connect the Actiontech if you want, or just use it as a doorstop because it's not worth much more than that. If you want to leave everything the way it is now, just connect the ethernet cable that Verizon hands to you and connect it to the WAN port of your RT31P2 and you'll be all set.

Thanks a lot for your reply. Am I correct in assuming that the WAN port is the port labeld 'Internet'. My RT31Pw does not have a port specifically labeled 'WAN'?

According to a post on dslreports.com, someone recommends that you use the Verizon-supplied router for the 15mps/2mps plan because you will not get 15 down.

From this post on www.dslreports.com:

If you have the 5/2 the Linksys one should work fine. If you have 15/2 use the DLink as your connection to them and plug the Linksys below it. The Linksys does not handle PPOE all that well, so you will not get 15 down with it. I tried 6 linksys routers and none of them handled the FIOS PPOE with the speed like the DLink one.

If you are or will be subscribing to FIOS TV you will have to use the Actiontec. It has a built in MOCA port that is required for use by the FIOS TV set top boxes for on demand programming as well as guide data.

Additionally the Actiontec router has advanced QoS and traffic shaping configuration that can be used to protect the quality of your calls from the effects of other activity on your network.

I would recommend using the Actiontec. It is designed to handle higher speeds than most of the existing consumer routers on the market and particularly the Vonage Linksys routers.

Curious why you say the Actiontec is not a good router? It has many more features that Linksys routers and it runs great if you update the firmware. I've had no issues at all with it.

This also is not true. I recently added FIOS TV, but have had FIOS Internet since the beginning of the year. I used my Linksys router and always pulled 16 down.

You do not have to use the Actiontec for FIOS TV. Some installers are giving customers the Actiontec AND a separate NIM. The NIM will handle the VOD and Guide so you can just add the NIM to your setup without the Actiontec. However, if you update to the latest firmware you can just use the Actiontec alone w/o the NIM.

I was more referring to its wireless capabilities.

Just to let you know I have Verizon FIOS 15 mps and am using that same ActionTec Router and all is good. My config is Internet->ActionTec->Vonage Motorola Device->PC.
I also have a notebook I use for wireless and the ActionTec is a good router to use for that purpose.
