    I have 2 Toshiba Satellite laptops. I have the identical problem on one computer (the computer that the Verizon technician loaded the Verizon software on) but the problem does not exist on the other computer. I never had an intermittent connectivity issue before switching to Verizon Fios and using their wireless router. Have you found any solution yet to the problem?

    I have the exact problem. I have to sit right by the router to be able to connect, but any other computer I use works all around the house!

Is your laptop running Vista and the desktops running Windows XP or they all running the same software??? Also your problem is the fios router they come set up to be on a automatic channel search so there always searching for the best channel and you probably live in a brick house....Go to the settings for the router you can get to them easy with the software they downloaded to your computer its the fios help icon on your desktop and you can change the routers channel go to 7 or 11... If you have any questions just let me know also please rate me if you get a chance..

Thanks,
Steve

Quick fix. Get rid of slow cable.
Go to Verizon FiOS if you can for the same services, but much faster and Verizon service is unparalleled.
I have DSL here where there is neither option.
Folks who have FiOS love it.

Can i use a Bright House Surfboard Router for Verizon FIOS Internet?


If you can reset all the parameters, however if you know all the info I would suggest that you use something like a Belkin. You need the IP "name" for you, the connection password, and you really need to know what you are doing.
The only ISP that cannot easily be used with another modem is Sky as they deliberately use a different encoding. Yet again another reason NOT to use sky, it is difficult to monitor, and to use other equipment.

I can't seem to remotely connect and view my lorex cameras. What am i doing wrong...it was working fine till I got Verizon FIOS


You may need to reopen the ports necessary for the Lorex to be available for remote viewing. You should be able to look at the function on the Lorex menu to get the port numbers, then call Verizon to have them forward the ports. Without port forwarding, your video stream is being blocked at the Verizon FIOS Modem.

Windows Networking Issue


FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.

My wireless connection won't work


Those pieces if data come from your FiOS gear. On the bottom of the FiOS Wireless and network set, is a serial number, and associated with that is another number, call it your password, but together they are the profile and Password with which you gain access to the FiOS Network, to allow you to get out to the Internet.
Check all installation papers you got from Verizon, as that information should be there, or call their help line. They are usually pretty good in helping you and FiOS is not off-shore, so you will get a good response.

Cannot Network printers on FIOS system


If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
