Re: Verizon FIOS - continual drops - NAT table issue?

Run a simple test, no guessing needed.

Directly connect your computer to the ONT perform the upload, if it works or not, then since you imply it fails every-time with a large upload, this should answer you question if its the router or not

thx
is there anything else I need to do, or is it just simply plugging the computer into the ONT to get connected to the internet, and then upload.

To answer the other Q asked - I use logmein Himachi to set up a VPN between 2 locations and then transfer files. with that connection I transfer with freedownloadmanager to get multiple simultaneous connections, or just directly transfer with Windows Explorer

You should release the DHCP lease on the Actiontec before disconnecting it, otherwise you may have a hard time acquiring a new DHCP lease until the old one expires.

I still laugh at that line every time you post, More Fiber.

I know, I'm so I'll quit now.

Sorry for the delay, I finally got around to testing this.

I released the DHCP (as per suggestion from "More Fiber"), unplugged the router and then went to the ONT.
I noticed that the MoCA light was blinking red
Anyway, I plugged in my computer directly to the ONT via Cat5 cable - however it wouldn't connect.

When I plugged my router back in, the internet worked and the MoCA turned green. I tried to transfer a coule of files (the old way - i.e. not directly to the ONT) and it crashed during the 2nd transfer.

Did I do something wrong with the ONT connection?

I found someone else with a similar problem

but don't see that he got it resolved only that he also had about 10 FIOS techs come to his house without fixing it
