I have the Actiontec Moca 2.0 ECB6200 bonded adapters. I have the same question you do. I know the G1100 broadcasts unbonded moca 2.0 to the STBs the question is which ports need to be opened for that? I know the G1100 moca LAN is at 1150 Mhz, what frequency is the ONT moca WAN on? Is the on demand stuff coming from the ONT wan (moca 1.1) or the G1100 moca Lan (moca 2.0)?


I had an expert verizon installer setting up my house and he couldn't answer any of these questions. In the end I had to use the Verizon G1100 and because Verizon can't fish wires in my house the G1100 ended up in my living room, which is an eyesore. 


I want to replace the G1100 with my own router, and replace the Moca signal with my own moca adapter, eliminating the G1100. Anyone have any STB setup info?

what if your netgear night hawk does not immediately have internet? if i can avoid this bridging crap then id like to do that,  i spent hours on th ephone but i saw nothing here about what to do if idid not immediately pick up.

spent an hour and a half trying to trouble shout their router and mine and i know thier **bleep** g1100 is the problem and i have internet only, so this should have been SIMPLE!

"dns did not repsond"
"dns failed bad config"
"googles ip adress could not be found"

it wants to work so bad and my internet light went to the right color and all lights go solid on my router, but it is just a closed door.

it even says "connected, secured" in windows when i connect to either bandwith, 2,4 or 5.0

Using a personal Router with FiOS Quantum G1100 and FIOS TV One Set Top Boxes


I’ve read a lot of different ways to get this to work but after trial and error, I found this to work best for me.

No need to bridge. 

I use a pfSense router/firewall and wanted to add FIOS TV but didn’t want to use Verizon’s G1100 routers.

My setup that finally worked:

  1. Verizon CAT6 WAN to pfSense router WAN port.
  2. pfSense LAN to Switch.
  3. G1100 WAN to Switch
  4. G1100 LAN x to two Mini FIOS TV One boxes only nothing else except HDMI to TV and power.
  5. Coax from FIOS split, one to G1100 and one to FIOS TV One DVR box.
  6. Nothing to FIOS TV One DVR box Ethernet port. Must be left open or nothing will work.
  7. pfSense LAN switch to the rest of my home network.

Looks like you could have a double NAT issue.

Does everything work? On demand? FIOS App to watch recorded content?

FIOS App to act as remote control?
