Re: DISABLE Actiontec mi424 bridge mode!

•Which "bridge mode" option did you use?
»Verizon Online FiOS FAQ »What are the tradeoffs between the various router configurations

Options 4 and 5 are the only true bridges.
Some of the other options are sometimes incorrectly referred to as bridges.

•What revision Actiontec do you have?

•Is the ECB2200 you have really an ECB2200, or is it a VZ branded ECB2200V?

•What are you using the ECB2200 for? PC, STB or something else?

•Do you have FIOS-TV?

said by roadsider7:

I believe my Actiontec ECB-2200 network adapter works in tandem with Verizon's router -- at least when it's not in bridge mode. Is that a correct assumption?

You need a MOCA bridge on each end of a MOCA LAN connection. Normally, the Actiontec serves as one end of that connection and the ECB2200 as the other end of that connection.

The ECB2200 will work with trade-offs options #5 (if that's what you're using) since the MOCA LAN on the Actiontec router is active to support the STBs. Trade-offs option #4 does not support MOCA LAN.

first of all, thanks for the help.

I was using the setup as described here at DSL Reports.

»How-to: make ActionTec MI424-WR a network bridge

We have revision F

The ECB is a Verizon unit that we were using to access a TiVo.

Those instructions do not support MOCA LAN.

Please following the instructions linked in option #5 (double bridge) in the trade-offs FAQ.
»Verizon Online FiOS FAQ »What are the tradeoffs between the various router configurations

You need the second bridge in the double bridge configuration in order to support MOCA LAN.
