Vera causing Verizion FIOS cables boxes not to boot

I am have an issue with Vera and my FIOS cable boxes. If the cable box need to reboot and the vera is plugged into the home network, the cable gets stuck in an infinite boot loop. As soon and I disconnect the vera the cable box boots. Once booted I can plug vera back in with out any problems.

Has anyone else run into this issue?

No, i have fios and don’t have issues. Did you give your Vera a static IP address?

This matter is discussed at length in this thread. It is a weakness in the FiOS device’s firmware. If you experience this issue, you will need to firewall certain ports, as described in the thread, or simply turn off UPnP scanning in Vera.

Setup → Net & Wifi → uncheck “Auto detect devices on my home network”
