Re: new installation tomorrow!

said by More Fiber:

The tech should be willing to provide a cat5 connection from the ONT, especially if it makes his install easier.

The tech will probably want to install the VZ router to ensure everything is working correctly with VZ equipment. Once he's done that, you're free to replace the Actiontec with your own router. Just be sure to release the DHCP lease before switching routers.

Thanks! Does this mean that the router they provide only has an ethernet WAN port and no coax?

The router will have both and ethernet WAN and coax WAN ports.

Cool. I'll ask them to install using the ethernet WAN port on the provided router. That way if I run into any issues I can easily bypass it to directly connect my firewall to the ONT.

Thanks for your help, folks!
