Why bother doing this set up then with E?
The VZ provided routers work fine for 99% of the 2+ million FIOS users.
However, there are a number of different reasons people want/need to run their own router. I've posted at length about those reasons in other threads. The FAQ exists to offer a variety of connectivity options to those users that have a need to run their own routers.
One of the common reasons people want to run their own router is that the switch ports on the Actiontec are only 100Mbps and they want/need 1Gbps connectivity between their devices.
Just because you can run your own router, does not mean that you have to.
