[fiber tech] 2 External IPs on one residential account I currentlly have FIOS and was wondering if there is any way to get a 2nd IP address via either using the coax for one and the ethernet on the ONT for the other IP? The situation is that i have the fios modem/router in one and my brother in another room would like to have his own dedicated IP to manage his network separate from mine, and also that what i do on my network doesn't affect the speed for my brother. Every time i call Verizon i get a different answer.
No. You get 1 ip. Setup Vlans and use QOS to prioritize your ip
Have you considered getting a home small business account? I know they are offered in my area but unsure in other areas. this allows you to get several static IP addresses. As far as 2 separate accounts at one address, well good luck with that. unless you were to get a home residential account and a small business account like I have had to do for several of my clients. Which in itself was a hassle.
said by :Even if it was possible (which it is not, on a residential account) simply being on separate IPs won't prevent your activities from slowing down your brother's internet access.

Either way, you both share the same circuit, and that circuit has finite bandwidth available.
ok i understand that much. I was told by one person that 1 ONT is capable of have 2 separate circuit ids, one for the coax and the other for the ethernet. Unfortunately i have been unable to find anything that backs that up.

Well its not impossible with residential, if you get a separate residential account and BOOM, two residential IPs. Although at that point it's just cheaper to get a business account with a 5 IP block...
If you want separate bandwidth though you have to go with another account.
ok. Thanks for your replies.
I'm probably not the only one to wonder what you're doing to suck up so much FIOS bandwidth that it becomes a concern for your brother.

No. With residential accounts you get 1 one ip at a time. And you cant have the data provisioned on coax and ethernet at the same time.
