    Is Fios easy to set up with a mac? I want to switch to fios but I just want to make sure there will not be any issues since I have a mac and it always seems the tech guys never know what to do when there is a mac involved. Its a mac pro and not a laptop if that matters.

    Fios really has nothing to do with OS X or Windows. As long as they give you a modem with an ethernet port you should be fine.

    There are many threads on here on this issue. As I recall, there have been issues when using an Airport router with their modem. Set up the Airport in bridge mode to avoid issues.

    Welcome to FiOS ! Its awesome. I use a few different routers on my FiOS service and my wife's MAC connects to the FiOS router just fine with wireless without making any special changes to it.

    Thanks, I am saying 70 bucks a month for more stations (better quality) and faster internet, over comcast.

    Working well for me with a FIOS network, including MOCA converters for wired Ethernet over cable wiring.
