I have ONT in garage, but it is not the ideal place for my router (I do not use the FiOS Router).
Was trying to figure out if I could use this config:
ONT Ethernet in garage --> Ethernet to MoCA bridge --> Coax to bedroom --> MoCA to Ethernet bridge --> my router
Seems like this will work?
I'm thinking I can use either ActionTec ECB6200 (x2) or Motorola MM1000 (x2).
If I hook it up and have any issue, I am thinking I might need to disconnect coax from the ONT (I'm just using coax as a closed system to bridge ont ethernet to a different part of the house, without running dedicated ethernet).
I am internet only, so I don't have to worry about ONT connectivity into my coax.
Solved! Go to Solution.

This will work. As you don't have TV, there's no need for the coax to be attached to the ONT at all -- you can disconnect it. If you want to leave it connected and insure it doesn't interfere with the MoCA signal in any way -- then install a MoCA low-pass filter (LPF) between the ONT and the rest of your home's cable plant. You can find one for less than $10 at your favorite online retailer.

There isn't any interference from the ONT and a low pass filter isn't needed at the ONT. Cable companies need them so no traffic over 860 MHz leave the house since multiple houses connect to the same tap. The MoCA traffic in a FiOS circuit ends at the ONT.
