|Been having some issues with WiFi at our 3 level townhouse and happened to have 2 extra G1100 laying around (So the main router in the Basement, 2nd router on the second floor and the 3rd router on the third floor). Since I can't run Ethernet to extend my network I starting using the extra G1100's as MoCa Bridges (I used the instructions from this link:|
Moderator note: Deleted link because it listed personally identifiable information including email and physical address location.
Cut and paste of instructions:
This document describes how to configure a Verizon FiOS G1100 to act in bridge mode. This mode deactivates some cable television features, but it allows another router to obtain an IP address directly from Verizon. Other users have documented these steps in publications such as DSL Reports.
This was working just fine till I tried resetting the third router in the office. I'm able to get internet from the second router but as soon as I configure the third one as a bridge and hook in the Coax cable I lose my internet connection but as soon as I unhook the coax on the third router the internet comes back. I feel like the third router is trying to become the primary router even though it's configured as a MoCa bridge.
I'm trying to figure this out cause I had it working for a few weeks and the only reason it's all screwed up is because I tried resetting the third router. Any thoughts what might be going on?
