Verizon FIOS

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Is it possible to use Verizon FIOS without using the router that they supply?  I have verizon business FIOS internet with a static IP.  I currently use a Juniper SSG-20, and would like to assign the IP on eth0/0.  I've plugged the CAT5e from the FIOS box on the wall directly into eth0/0.  The right light is solid green the left light on the port blinks green and is then out perminantly.  I setup the IP/netmask/gateway on eth0/0, but it doesn't work.

Am I wasting my time trying to figure this out, or am I just doing something wrong?
