Re: [PLUG] Verizon FiOS?

Okay, the installation is done, and despite bridging the connection, the system does not work the way I expected. Even setting up the bridging, I can not get an IP address directly from Verizon.

I also learned that, no way no how can you get Internet on the Ethernet port if you also have Fios TV. The ONT simply can't do that.

My choices are: Pay an extra $110/mo to get the business Internet/Fios with a static IP (50 extra for the service, another 30 in losing my bundle discount, and another 30 for losing my free DVR for 6-month deal)... or just plug back into Comcast...

I think I'll pick the latter... I am glad I didn't call to have Comcast turned off yet.

And this, unfortunately, seems to be the point.
