    Start at Chapter 4 (page 33). This will walk you through your setup. Post if you run in to questions, or problems with that setup. The basic setup they show is what you will want for Verizon FIOS.

    Thanks... Do I need to make the Fios router a bridge first?  I am using a static ip address not a ppoe.

    That is ideal. Just have your Watchguard up and configured first if you want to avoid an outage.
