Linksys x2000 and VDSL requirements.

So i have verizon fios 15/5 with a Series3 9100VM modem/router hookup through a vdsl connection.

The router died.

Can I use a Linksys x2000 or do i need a special modem/router device?

If it was a Fios provided modem/router they will replace it for you. Otherwise, yes you can use a Linksys Router

Edit: You still need the modem as said below

Since your Westell 9100VM died, you need a new D-Link bridge modem and Verizon BHR sent to you.

You can't use a Linksys router without a VDSL modem.

If the OP has FIOS-TV, he still needs a Westell or Actiontec to provide MOCA LAN.

I dont use the cable connection or the phone input. Just internet.

So I have to go through Verizon to replace my box? I cant use the adsl2+ modem/router from Linksys(the x2000)?

If you are being fed VDSL, then no, an ADSL modem will not work. Also, you're in the wrong forum -- this is the FiOS FIBER forum.

If you have a fiber connection, then you have an ONT hanging on your house and the internet enters your house via MoCA (coax) or Ethernet. If it's coax, then you may need to call verizon to have it switched to ethernet (and, of course, run an ethernet cable), then you can use almost any router. (in that case, the x2000's blue "cable" WAN interface.)

No he isn't. In MDUs, Verizon sometimes uses VDSL to distribute internet service under the brand name of FiOS. Similar to how Uverse is distributed, but on a much more local scale.

FiOS in a MDU over VDSL is still "FiOS".
