    Yeah, I was being general. I mean the router that they supply.

    Yeah, you can sort of read about the Fios system on WikiPedia (I say
    sort, because it is not easy reading).

    There are three parts to the Fios (which is why they say three colors or
    three frequencies or something like that), one for TV signal, one for
    incoming internet and one for outgoing internet. PPV comes over the
    incoming internet and commands go out over the outgoing internet.

    You should so not that you don't get wireless internet, just wired
    internet. You still have to get a wireless router to get the wireless
    part (and connect it to the wired internet).

    Well, if you don't have any wireless devices, like wireless laptops.

    If all the computers you have are wired desktops, you don't want to use
    the wireless, to make it harder for people to break in.

    Is that why the call it an "impersonal computer?"

    Someone who breaks into the computer can later use it to send out spam
    and do other nasty things.

    Hi GoMavs. I am a Verizon FiOS Network Technician. The router you are
    supplied is an Actiontec brand with MoCA capability built into it. If
    you have video service with us you will need that router or a special
    MoCA Network Interface Modelue (NIM) will be needed for your
    SetTopBoxes to receive Widgets, VOD, clock, IPG. Chances are pretty
    good you will need that router anyway because it is probably hooked up
    to the Optical Network Terminal (ONT) outside your house by coax and
    not by ethernet cord.

    The router does have built in wireless capability with 40/64 bit WEP or
    128 bit security. Personally I like MAC filtering for my wireless
    router also. In any case if you want more information regarding FiOS
    write back to this thread or e-mail me.

    One possibility: You don't yet have enough knowledge to secure a wireless
    connection, and you need time to read about it.

    Another: Your computer never leaves the desk, and the modem's a foot away.
