Before I switched from Spectrum, I was a Verizon FiOS customer (back when Time Warner Cable). The following have worked for me on FiOS:G1100 – Verizon Quantum G1100 Wi-Fi 6 Mesh (Actiontec MI424WR). Each router upgrade has resulted in a significant increase in raw FiOS and Wi-Fi speeds. As a result, I’ve stayed with Verizon’s equipment since I’ve had problems utilizing my router. Because Verizon doesn’t offer any help if you use your gear, you’re forced to play tech support at home if there’s ever an issue.
Unboxing of The Verizon G3100
Sorry, there isn’t an unboxing video for the G3100 on YouTube yet. What’s in the box? This package includes the Verizon G3100, a power cable, an Ethernet cable, and a few more items.The Verizon G3100 user handbook/manual is available online, and the current URL can be found here. Because Verizon is constantly changing its handbook, we’ve included a link to the FCC’s.
The Vodafone G3100 looks more like a Chromecast, and a Flexible and versatile had a baby than the earlier Verizon routers. Later, I’ll talk about the white LED light and button on the front. Based on the FCC ID RAXG3100, Arcadyn Technologies manufacture the Verizon G3100. Consequently, the G3100 is incompatible with any other Wi-Fi Network Connectivity system that Verizon offers.
If you wish to take advantage of the G3100 Mesh capabilities, you’ll need to purchase a Verizon E3200 Extender. The G3100 is simply a Mesh Wi-Fi in name as a standalone device. As a result, the G3100 Mesh Wi-Fi device appears to have a more current Google-home design, but the internal components are all vertically placed on the same circuit board. So all of the storage is either unused or used to cool the device.
Overview of Verizon G3100 TCP Port
A single USB port on the G3100 has been removed contrasted to the G1100 despite being available for 5v charging. A network printing or hard drive will not operate since there is no USB port. Verizon may modify this in the near, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
The Real-World Speedtest And Experience With Verizon G3100 Wireless
It wasn’t a struggle to get the coverage I required from the Verizon Quantum G1100, so I decided to switch. Who required a repeater and a separate router and SSID? Previously, I was using a Verizon G1200 and a Linksys RE9001 that I purchased at Best Buy. The LAN ports were important to me, so I instead went with a more expensive repeater option.
Because the layout of my house is private, I won’t show you the floor plan, but one of the problems I had with the Planck G1100 was that wifi has been almost non-existent in areas other than the bedrooms and bathrooms that were not connected to the kitchen. My Smart TV, Apple, Game Consoles, and Smartthings Hub devices require more than four LAN ports. Therefore I’m still using an 8 Port Nighthawk network switch-off of the G3100.
First and foremost, I’m happy to report that all of my smart home devices are now connected to the same SSID, thanks to Verizon’s G3100 router. Managing and configuring the system has been made much easier due to this major development. And if you ever run into some problems with your router feel free to check this troubleshooting guide.

Easy Wireless Mesh Network Setup Using The Verizon G3100
Self-installation is possible with the G3100. FYI, I found the G3100 on Amazon for $50 less than it costs on Verizon. 5 to 10 minutes is all it takes to install on your own. If you’re looking for help, I’d like to recommend this. As the last step, you must disconnect your G1100 and plug in the G3100, so be sure you go through the instructions completely before proceeding. For the Actiontec MI424WR, these instructions are the same. Connect and start up your G3100 immediately after hitting Apply on your G1100.
You’d better get ready to party.
