You don't have to use bridge mode for this (and the Actiontec router VZ supplies with FiOS is capable of doing bridge 
mode, but unless you jump through some fairly esoteric hoops, doing so breaks the guide and VOD, trust me on this...oh 
and you have to jump through them every time you reset the damn thing for any reason).  I set mine with my D-Link as 
the DMZ host and forward all traffic on all ports unimpeded to it, and it works; Poor Man's Bridge, but it works.

Hobby horse: please make sure it support bridge mode? Those of us who
want to put our own routers on the wire will hate you otherwise.

Why? As long as it can be a transparent router, why would it need to
be a bridge?

Ask a Verizon FiOS customer who wants to run IPv4 VPNs.

He didn't say IPv6 only, right?  

I have a couple of customers who can't get bridge mode on residence FiOS 
service, and therefore can't run their own routers to terminate IPsec.
