Using DIR-868L for wifi with FIOS router - Arris NVG468MQ
« on: March 07, 2019, 01:15:43 PM »

Just got Frontier FIOS.  Can't attach my network drive to the supplied router.  So I need to use my 868L.  Would appreciate info on setting up the 868L, and what settings would need to be changed in the Arris unit.

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?
  • If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Disable ALL WiFi radios on the modem. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.

Sorry so long in getting back on this:

Hardware version: A1
Firmware version: 1.01
Located in Riverside CA (if that's what is meant by "region").

Will follow up on the 4th bullet this week.

Thanks very much.

FW is very OLD on your 868L. You might need to update FW as well.  ???
