Diagnosed a bad actiontec router on Verizon FIOS (wired ports don't work... wireless does though - so I know we have internet access when on a wireless PC). Installed a linksys router and didn't get a DHCP IP address on the wan side of router. Confirmed with verizon that it's DHCP, not PPPOE. Even cloned the wan side MAC from the actiontec router.
used a Fluke linkrunner and found low level coming out of the FIOS box on the side of the house
is that just a feature of fios or that device is bad? The signal seems too low for the linksys to work? And the Fluke Linkrunner also couldn't get an IP address.
