Leary of 'refurbished'...it seems like that is where routers that didn't work when new wind up...and NOT 'refurbished'.

Solid router for under $50. Super easy to flash 3rd party firmware for more features. Pretty much unbrickable. Just be sure to verify it works upon receipt and you should be fine.

Already have an Asus AC66R and need a second AP for the West side of house. Should I get another AC66R or the AC1900 (whether TP-Link or Asus/T-Mobile)? I can't think of any benefits to having the same exact model wireless routers.

I'll venture to guess that a major/leading router manufacturer, during a development process, spends more time testing their new products against their own products. For example, each generation of Asus wireless routers has matching Wi-Fi Adapters. It would seem logical to expect them to be designed / tuned to perform well together. But that's just a speculation on my part. I don't have data to prove it.

Need a new router, which one is better between the 2? I obviously don't know squat about them.

You still need a cable modem from Verizon.

From what I'm reading, Verizon FIOS is not compatible with any cable modem. You have to use a modem or modem/router combo unit that Verizon provides. You can use these Asus routers to manage the "router" part of your home network, though. Meaning, if Verizon gave you a modem/router combo, you can still use the modem part, but don't do anything with the router part. Handle that part on the Asus routers.

Can you tell us why you are looking for this type of function? Perhaps there is an alternate solution. Routers, not even 3rd party firmware, generally offer this option.

That is incorrect. FIOS does not use modems. The ethernet/coax connects to FIOS router and the FIOS router gives off wifi/ethernet connections. If you have a coax connection you can have verizon switch you to ethernet, and then all you need is this router and can return the FIOS equipment. If you already have ethernet and not coax, then this router can replace the FIOS equipment.

You have to push the buttons to specify the hours you will be sleeping. Smilie https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B006LYHDYA

There is no customer-side "modem" for FIOS. The ONT (the box on the side of your house) serves that purpose and presents the IP network via a twisted pair and/or coax connection to a router. In the standard installation, their router has two physical network interfaces (1) an RJ-45 for Internet and (2) coax for the MoCA network providing network access and TV signal to the set-top boxes. Their router bridges the two internally.

So, the short answer is, yes, you can use it for Internet service. That assumes that you have a twisted pair network run to your router from the ONT. Otherwise if an older install then you may have coax only. You can have them change it if necessary.

If you have TV service then there's a longer, more involved answer depending on how you want to set things up but basically, yes, in that case too but you'll need some other way to provide the MoCA side of the network to the STBs if you want full features (channel guide, VOD, remote DVR, etc.).
