I have a Verizon Fios and their MI424WR router (this uses coaxial cable). My main issue is that my wireless signal seems slow and unreliable these days.
I requested a replacement but it doesn't seem to work, that is I unhook up the coax cable but it doesn't connect to the internet (plugging it back to the old router the internet connection works fine so it seems to be the new router).
So I'm thinking about buying a replacement. But my connection is coaxial and most routers don't have connections for this. And since my main issue is wireless I'm thinking about getting just hooking up a new router for wireless only (and turning off the wireless on the verizon router)
- Would I run into any issue setting up a 'wireless only' router off the verizon router?
- Can I somehow convert the coax to ethernet and use a new route as my only router?
- Would there be any advantage to having only one router?
- Any thoughts on the replacement router not connecting to the internet. Am I missing some setup step? (I wait the 1 to 6 mins for it to configure itself as the documentation says, and eventually I did a hard re-set on router too)
