Re: Bring your own router Ethernet WAN & MoCA

Which bridges are approved (if any)?

Also, I was given this configuration by my router manufacturer. Is there a better method to use my own router as the primary?

I figured a bridge is a purpose-built device and would be better for my purposes.

As I said before, any of them will work, but don't expect support from VZ for them. Any configuration other than the Actiontec as primary is unsupported by VZ.

There are a number of different possible configurations, each with different advantages and disadvantages. Please review the following FAQ:
