    My ISP is Verizon Fios. Is this compatible with that?   (5 Answers)

      Answer

      Hello, it is not the Router which needs to be compatible with your IPS Verizon Fios, as your Modem must be compatible with your IPS Verizon service. You can use any make/model of any Router with your Modem, as long as your Modem is compatible with your Verizon IPS service. If you already have a working Modem on your IPS Verizon service, then this Linksys WRT3200 ACM Router will work. By the way, I had just upgraded my older Linksys Router which was a N900 to this new WRT3200 ACM Router, and this new WRT Router is lighting fast throughout my 2500 foot two story home with 12 assorted wired and wireless connected items to it. I also purchased the Linksys 8-port Gigabit switch, for all my wired connected items, which looks identical to the WRT3200 Router. I hope this answers your question.

      Answer

      Hi. The Linksys WRT3200ACM router could provide you better wireless range and coverage, perfect for a very large household. It could go beyond 150 feet away, however, metal objects, appliances, thick walls, and mirrors might cause signal interference. Also, proper positioning of the antennas would help in boosting the range.

      Answer

      Hello; I would definitely use the WRT3200ACM Linksys Router along with the Linksys 8-Port Gigabit Switch, as you will have plenty of Gigabit connections. I myself do have this very same setup in my 2500 foot two family home, with a total of (14) items connected to this Linksys Router and everything works very well without no dropouts at all. I have (7) items which are wired and (6) which are wireless, and all work great, with a very strong signal. Hope this helps.

        Answer

        I have Motorola Surfboard SB6121 modem connected to this router, if your modem/router with WIFI then it's not going to work. You may want to get a newer faster SB6141 modem, since mine still function well I keep using it.

        Answer

        In a 2800 sq. ft. home, I could get coverage everywhere but speeds slowed down on the 2nd floor. If I want in the same room, I got about 50-60% signal strength everywhere else. The floor plan is pretty open.
