Verizon Fios setup

Work in Progress - not completed as of 12/13/07 - redhawk

In order to use your dd-wrt loaded router instead of the Verizon FIOS Supplied ActionTec WI424WL router follow the setup steps below

The ActionTec (AT) router is necessary to make the FIOS Set Top Box (STB) work with the Program Guide and the Video on Demand (VoD). Even if you didn't order the FIOS internet but did order the FIOS TV then you will get one of these routers. It is a necessary addition to the configuration due to the way the program guide and VoD is obtained over the Coax cable (MoCA connection)

1 - Login to your AT router (default username/password = admin/password)

2 - Click on Globe next to the words "Broadband Connection" on this homepage.

3 - Locate the column that has the header "Broadband Connection Ethernet"

4 - Take note of the MAC address and write it down...this will be used as the WAN MAC Cloning on the dd-wrt router. If you don't clone the MAC address, then you will have to contact Verizon to release/renew your DHCP connection on their side….By cloning the MAC address….you can also switch back to the ActionTec easily without calling Verizon.

5 - Configure your dd-wrt router with a different subnet IP address from the AT router. I used on the dd-wrt loaded router. [NOTE] - The default address from Verizon AT is and is required for proper communication with the Verizon data servers for the MoCA configuration of the STB.

6 – Set your dd-wrt router up with a Static IP address for the AT. Go to the Service Tab and Add the Broadband Connection Ethernet MAC address to an address like in the Static Address field. The AT router name is Wireless_Broadband_Router but you can name it anything you like.

7 – On the AT you can leave the DHCP turned on for the “Network (Home/Office)” side. (LAN side of the AT)

8 – Disable the Wireless of the AT is you don’t plan to use it.

9 – Plug the AT WAN port into the dd-wrt LAN port.

10 – Verify that your STD can get VoD. If it can, then you have things set up correctly and your Program Guide will also update regularly.
