SBG6580 and Verizon

I'm trying to use the sbg6580 with Verizon and cant get it to connect to the internet. Called verizon and since it's not on their approved list of modems to troubleshoot they wont even try to help. Called motorola and they told me basically I'm SOL since it's not approved by verizon and the only option I have is to take it back.

Has anyone been able to to connect to the internet, that is using Verizon? Is there some settings I need to change to make this work?

verizon is DSL not cable which is why the SBG6850 will not work it's a cable modem.

You can't connect a cable modem to FIOS.

FIOS provides you with an Actiontec router. FIOS uses MOCA between the ONT and the Actiontec, which is a completely different technology than cable modems use.

Just as an aside, it is possible to set up a FiOS Actiontec router to work as a conventional router that will function when connected to any cable or DSL modem. I have done it with a Rev. C and a Rev. D, so it should work on any revision. Not the simplest thing to do, but it can be done.

For DSL provider, it use as a phone line to DSL.

For Cable Provider, it use as a TV cable to Cable Modem (DOCSIS 1.x to 3.0).

For Fiber Optics Provider, it use as a Fiber (multi color light inside fiber lines) to ONT (Optical Network Terminal) to MoCA Router and TV or HD Box. It will not work with DOCSIS.

What are you talking about?

A DSL modem can not be used with FIOS.
