Notice that at this point you have two options to set up wifi. If you keep the Verizon FiOS wifi running, you’ll have two wifi signals in your home: one from Verizon FiOS, one from pcWRT. Alternatively, you can shutdown the Verizon wifi signal, keeping only the pcWRT wifi.
Our recommendation is to configure the pcWRT wifi such that it’ll have the same SSID and wifi password as your Verizon FiOS router, then turn off the wifi signal on the Verizon FiOS router. This way, you don’t have to reconfigure all your home devices that connect to your home wifi.
Here’s how to turn off wifi for the Verizon FiOS router:
Open a web browser on a computer connected to the FiOS router. In the address bar, enter: http://192.168.1.1
Enter user name and password to login the router admin console.
Click Wireless Settings in the main screen.
Click Basic Security Settings, then click the Off radio button.
I have new frontier router. My pcwrt router connect to frontier router and it work fine ( my laptop can go to internet thru pcwrt)
But I cannot get pcwrt admin login page. I tried 192.168.10.1 and it show cannot find it.
I did arp -a to display all available active IP and it show this
I’m being prompted by my cable company (xfinity) to upgrade to their “wireless gateway”–I’m assuming I can hook up pcwrt to it and use it. Are the instructions above a good guide to setting this up? Is there something different I should do to make sure these two routers play well together?
