My friend was told he was not allowed to. Greg, there is a way to update
the firmware in your ActionTec which seemed to help my friend. It reduced
the frequency of reboots.
What I suggest is getting an access point to make as a client to the
ActionTec. Let the wireless access point handle the wireless and perhaps
the DHCP of the wireless devices.
Set the ActionTec to only distribute IP addresses from 192.168.0.20 -
Set the wireless access point to only distribute IP addresses from
The IPs are only for example, you can obviously change range and base
address. Also, if you get a wireless N based device, and you have devices
that support it (Greg? macbook?), then you can meet the Verizon requirement
by keeping your router (and disabling it's wireless) and still get the high
speed throughput using your extra wireless device.
Make sure you set your wireless device to distribute the gateway address as
the ActionTec router and not the wireless access point itself.
