1.3/ GETTING TO KNOW YOUR Fios Home Router
1.3a/ FRONT PANEL
The front panel’s unified button allows quick access to the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) feature and pairing mode.
The Router Status LED will be on white and solid when your router is turned on, connected to the internet, and functioning normally.

The WPS button is used to initiate Wi-Fi Protected Setup. This is an easy way to add WPS capable devices to your wireless network. To activate the WPS function, press and hold the unified button located on the front of your Fios Home Router for more than two seconds. When WPS is initiated from your router, the Router Status
LED slowly flashes blue for up to two minutes, allowing time to complete the WPS pairing process on your wireless device (also known as a wireless client). When a device begins connecting to your router using WPS, the Router Status LED rapidly flashes blue for a few seconds, and turns solid blue and then solid white as the connection completes.
If there is an error during the WPS pairing process, the Router Status LED slowly flashes red for two minutes after the error occurs.
Refer to the “Connecting A Wi-Fi Device Using WPS” for more details. In addition, the unified button also provides a quick view of the operational state of the Fios Home Router using various colors as indicated in the chart above. Please refer to section 9.0h for details on the rear LEDs.

1.3b/ REAR PANEL
The rear panel of your router has a label that contains important information about your device, including the default settings for the router’s wireless network name (SSID), wireless password (WPA2 key), local URL for accessing the router’s administrative pages, and administrator password. The label also contains a QR code that you can scan with your smartphone, tablet, or other camera equipped Wi-Fi device to allow you to automatically connect your device to your Wi-Fi network without typing in a password (requires a QR code reading app with support for Wi-Fi QR codes).

The rear panel has seven ports; F-type coax, Ethernet LAN (four), Ethernet WAN, and USB. The rear panel also includes a DC power jack and a reset button.

Ethernet LAN – connects devices to your Fios Home Router using Ethernet cables to join the local area network (LAN). The four Ethernet LAN ports are 10/100/1000 Mbps auto-sensing and can be used with either straight-through or crossover Ethernet cables.
• USB – provides up to 1000 mA at 5 VDC for attached devices. For example, you could charge a cell phone. With a firmware upgrade, the USB host functionality may be available for other devices, such as external storage and cameras. Firmware updates are performed automatically by Verizon.
Ethernet WAN – connects your Fios Home Router to the internet using an Ethernet cable.
Coax WAN and LAN – connects your router to the internet and/ or to other MoCA devices using a coaxial cable.
Warning: The WAN coax port is intended for connection to Verizon Fios only. It must not be connected to any exterior or interior coaxial wires not designated for Verizon Fios.
Reset Button – allows you to reset your router to the factory default settings. To perform a soft reboot, press and hold the button for at least three seconds. To reset your router to the factory default settings, press and hold the button for at least ten seconds.
