I switched to Verizon Fios (from Cox) about four months ago. I was trying to log into my Linksys - AC5400 Tri-Band WiFi 5 Router. The Fios tech said i need to use the Fios router no matter what since i was also getting Fios TV. Something about not getting the tv guide without it. Normally, I access the router by typing http://192.168.1.1/ but this now takes me to the Fios router vice the Linksys. I tried to go wireless using the Linksys router but that also just too be to the Fios router page. Wireless in my house is only through the Linksys attached via a Ethernet cord to the Fios box. The rest of the house is wired from the Fios box to a Netgear gigabit switch. I tried unplugging the Fios box but that does not work. Reason why i want to access the Linksys router is because this weekend i plan on installing a range extender. Any suggestions?
I did not have this issue with Cox because i did not have to have their router in my home.
