New FiOS Install Tomorrow...

Recommended Posts

Sup all.

I am joining the FiOS bandwagon ... It was finally available in my area (11746). I have been very unhappy with OOL and there speeds ...

1. I was just wondering what I should be watching for (if anything) as far as the install goes.

2. I have Cablenut - but where is the "fiberoptic" settings?

3. I have a Linksys WRT54G waiting to be hooked up (I did not want the DLink), will/should there be any issues with this router?

4. I have my Tivo and XBOX 360 that will be connected via wireless - will this effect my overall  up/down speeds (I am on the 15/2) ...

Thanks ...

If you're on the 15/2, your router shouldn't be a problem...The 30/5 gives some routers trouble....

http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1013.0;attach=2784  Heres the newest vanburen cablenut settings..Look under the fiberoptic ones for Verizon Fios 15000/2000 PPPoE..(unless you are dhcp, but most likely PPPoE)

We get around 12,000-15,000 on our wireless here(we have the 30/5), and I haven't really tried to tweak it too much..(since I never use the wireless)..With some tweaking, you shouldn't lose too much speed if any...

As far as install goes....its going to take a while...(we got phone service too, so it took a little longer), but ours went very well, and the installer was very professional...

Welcome to Team Fios

Voltageman - Thank you very much. Is there a difference with the PPPoE/DHCP? Have you had any experience using FiOS on XBOX 360/Live, curious about performance, ease of setup? (This goes out to anyone else as well). If the 15/2 works out well, I am going to move to the 30/5 - for $10 more it's a  great deal.

Blunted 2 - I am in the 11746 area code (Dix Hills/Huntington area). A Verizon tech mentioned FiOS to me when he was repairing a phone line in my place of business - the tech was very professional and knew his stuff - then he gave me a link to check if it was available in my area. The rest was history.

Well - everything seems good here. The tech came installed everything, very professional. FYI - New fios installs net you the free wireless Dlink. I used cablenut and the Fios reg settings..

Now have to setup the wireless part for Tivo and XBOX 360 ...

Well all is well, XBOX and Tivo are running fine...

I do have a question on the Dlink - Any way to increase the range on the wireless part? When I had my Linksys 'B' setup, both my Tivo's were at 100% - now only 85-87% with the Dlink. I also noted the  firmware is 2.43 and I see on Dlink's site there is a 2.70 - should I upgrade it? Also, are there any performance settings that should be changed?

Thanks all...

look at the link in my sig (vyrax.com) and he can build you an antenna for really cheap and it will extend your wireless range quite a bit or just take a look around

Yes I think he is lucky because there are people who have crappy service providers with a monopoly in their areas who never up grade. Threse providers have the mentality of its better than dial up.

I was in that boat until 2 months ago....Only had OOL, which for a while was great, until they oversold the node here, and I couldnt get dial up speeds at night, when I was supposed to get 10000/1000...The most I could get at night was 1500/600...Not even close to what I was paying for...

Thank god for Fios..

i think optimum online is a monopoly cause they owned so much of the cable lines in long island but they offer decent speeds

btw voltageman my opt online speeds are in my sig :D

The node here would burst into flames if I ran at that speed on OOL...

Out here they SUCK...

I used to slow down to dial up at night...Now its 24/7 top speed..And my ping problems(which OOL's techs told me over and over was a problem with my pc), have mysteriously gone away...

If you're on the 15/2, your router shouldn't be a problem...The 30/5 gives some routers trouble....

I tried the 15/2 PPPoE setting in this link and it cut my download in half!!  I went back to my old settings and I was back up to 15/2.  What gives?

Just to make sure, do you have to put name and pass in the router to login?(your verizon name/pass)

I found sometimes you need to change the DefaultReceiveWindow and DefaultSendWindow to a multiple of MSS..

Try to put - 511104 - for the DefaultReceiveWindow, and - 127776 - for DefaultSendWindow.

Sometimes I found if the windows are not multiple of MSS, webpages may load slow, and speed tests may be off...Try those values..

I attached 2 ccs with the values adjusted...

Try both files and let me know if its any better.. ;)
