Especially, what's the difference between the first three.

the first two are probably connections to the home network. the first one should provide DHCP to the home network. default gateway is 192.168.1.1 and then whatever the computers are.  the broadband connection is for the external network so that the router can communicate with the outside world.  the third one wireless provides connectivity wireless to the home.  I am not sure if people are still using PPoE.  ppoe is kinda old now. Verizon does not use it anymore.

1)  Network (Home/Office) refers to your LAN.  As the connection type indicates, it is a bridge that allows the different LAN media (MOCA LAN, ethernet, wireless) to communicate.

2)  Ethernet/coax is the interface to the ethernet switch which supports the 4 LAN ports and the MOCA LAN interface.

3)  Broadband Connection is your WAN interface.  This is the interface which allows the router to communicate with the ONT, either via coax or cat5.

4)  Wireless Access Point is obvious.

5)  Some very old FIOS installs still use PPPoE instead of DHCP.  You don't have PPPoE since this column is disabled.
