How set up NIM100 so I can ditch the Actiontech router?
I only have Fios for internet and the Actiontech wireless router is terrible. Unfortunately, I did not know it when they installed the Fios and they ran coax instead of ethernet (even though I dont have Fios tv). So, I bought a Motorola NIM100 on Ebay so I could use my Linksys wireless router instead of the Actiontech. I thought it was plug-and-play, but I am not connecting to the internet. Anything I should be doing or any settings should check? Thanks!
I have it set ONT-coax-NIM100-cat5-Linksys.
I am not connecting to the internet.

Did you release your IP address for the Actiontech before switching?
Hi, I also have the actiontech router, can you please tell me what you dont like about it?
The NAT table is tiny so it consistently shuts down. Also, the wireless performance is horrible. Do a search and you will find out more. Just enter a few terms such as actiontech fios and terrible.
