I am getting a Verizon FIOS install(data and phone) soon and plan on doing ethernet to a Asus RT-N66U. Location is FIOS ready. I had a couple question that I was hoping someone who has FIOS could give insight on.
1. Are there any specific settings on my router that help with performance? MTU? DNS?
2. What are FIOS IPv6 settings? Available in RI? Native DHCPv6? What IP block?
3. What are the general metric to check for at the ONT? I know it doesn't have a web UI, but what would a technician check during a install?
4. Any pro/cons to having a battery backup? I have one currently but was considering removing since possibly old. Does ONT run off battery or AC during normal function?
Thank you for any input you may have.
