I see.. I had assumed that there was still router interference despite them being bridged together.

I convinced Verizon to use my own router, so I have the following:

FiOS Modem

Cisco router/24 port switch
|
CAT6 hardline to anything I can
=
MOCA coax->Ethernet adapters to hardline anything I couldn’t run CAT6 to(these things are great)
=
A pair of Airports at either end of the house that link and provide one WiFi network

Pair of 5 port switches in the office to facilitate LAN parties

Side point: Is anyone using Plex and/or a dynamic DNS to make their gear accessible over the Internet? Finally have the library solid and aiming to serve this stuff up on the tubes; Spotify Premium serves most of my needs, but there's some stuff in my collection I'd love to have available when I'm traveling. Putting my FiOS router in bridge mode is the 'recommended' method, but I'll be damned if I can find that setting. I can have the DLink do the NAT-ing, but it's a little harder south of the edge. Kthx

I am wondering whether a single ultra powerful router like the Netgear Nighthawk X10 is a better alternative to what I'm currently using...





Haven’t had too much experience with router setups but I do have a spectrum cable internet to a Motorola surfboard router to a nighthawk X10 and it is the best purchases I’ve made this year. Great internet all over the house, upstairs and basement, great for gaming and streaming with multiple devices at home. Unless you have a relatively large house this router should be great.

I have a pfsense router / firewall running on a hyper-v server with 2x ubiqiti unifi ap ac pro APs. Not exactly a consumer system, but ubiquiti makes some products that are reasonably consumer friendly and of much better quality than typical consumer products.

Here are some great articles on what you could do:
