FiOS G1100 Gateway Bridge Mode

This document describes how to configure a Verizon FiOS G1100 to act in bridge mode. This mode deactivates some cable television features, but it allows another router to obtain an IP address directly from Verizon. Other users have documented these steps in publications such as DSL Reports.

Login to the G1100 from a computer which is directly connected to one of the G1100’s LAN ports.

Select Wireless Settings→Basic Security Settings, and turn off 2.4 Ghz and 5 GHz wireless. Click Apply.

Verizon FiOS ActionTec MI424-WR a network bridge

•New FiOS installations now connect you using the MoCA system from the ONT, not ethernet, thus preventing you from directly connecting a router of your choice to the ONT (some of you may say that the ethernet jack at the ONT is still there and you could run an ethernet cable to it, but it will NOT work because the ONT was not configured for ethernet connectivity during initial install by verizon).
•As part of the new FiOS installations, you are given an ActionTec MI424-WR router
