Verizon FiOS is coming to my apartment complex within the next few weeks, and I am going to switch. When I get the new service, I want to use an airport extreme router instead of the supplied Verizon router. The problem is the Verizon supplied router, unlike other routers, has both a coax and ethernet inputs. From what I have heard, Verizon makes it a little tricky to circumvent using the stock router and switch to a router such as an airport extreme. I ran some searches on the Verizon forums, and I received limited help. The help I received mainly regarded using the Verizon router as a bridge; however, I could not find any advice in terms of bypassing the router completely. Anyone here have/had this problem? If I did use the bridge method, will it downgrade my speed? Thanks in advance for any help I receive.
