My FIOS comes out of the wall using ETHERNET CAT 5. I have only FIOS Internet and phine. No TV.
How do I setup my E3000 router I tried yesterday all day and it would never detect the internet signal. It did connect wireless to my laptop great.
I would apppreciate detailed guidance on this. Thanks.

My desktop is wired into the router and it works great.I decided to connect my WRT54G Linksys wireless router to the Actiontec router and use that for wireless. I'm trying to set it up as an access point, but think I messed up. Here is what I did:I connected a cable from the LAN port of the Verizon router to the LAN port on the Linksys router. I disabled DHCP on the Linksys router and disabled wireless on the Verizon router. My laptop can see the linksys router and connect, however it cannot acquire an IP address. When I wire my desktop to the Linksys with an ethernet cable, I get internet access, so I know it's getting to the Linksys router. Just not sure why I'm not getting an IP address when I connect through wireless.Any thoughts? Something obvious? Thanks. I only know the basics on setting up a network, so I'm sure I missed something.

I've been trying to cascade my E2000 to my Verizon FIOS router for the past few hours now. I'm paying for 20 Mb/s DL, and I'm getting 22-25 when physically connecting to the router, but only 7-12 wirelessly. So I figured I'll connect my N-network router to their horrible B/G router. I generally knew how to in the first place - disable the FIOS router's wifi, change the IP of the E2000 to something that won't match the IP of something else that's in the network, disable DHCP of the E2000, and then connect the two routers on numbered ports on each side. I've run into two problems that Verizon's tech guy couldn't help me with, and Cisco's guy can't because apparently they don't offer free service for this model anymore, or something to that effect.
1. After changing the IP address of my E2000 from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 - I get a 50% chance of being able to return to the web-based setup page (typing the IP address into a browser's URL). I've had to reset the thing half a dozen times and repeat step number 2. I try both 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1 several times before giving up and resetting the E2000 to start from scratch.
2. I was once able to successfully connect the two... for no reason. I checked my bandwidth, and I still barely reached 11 Mb/s of DL 4 feet away from either router. I tried unplugging both routers, and then the connection broke, the E2000 was no longer broadcasting the internet after they both reset.
So I reset my E2000 for a 7th time.
I've now changed the IP address of the E2000 to 192.168.2.1, disabled DHCP, (and also changed the network name, password, changed the channel width to auto, set the radio to 5.0 from 2.4, etc etc) - my laptops (OSX 6.8, Windows 7) are getting 5/5 bars... but getting a self-assigned IP, so I'm not able to connect to the internet wirelessly, but when physically connected to the E2000, I'm getting 21-25 Mb/s. I want to smash the E2000 into the FIOS router, please help.
