Hi I disconnected the coaxial cable from my Actiontec router because we are having our floors done and the cable goes through the floor. I was surprised I still had wireless service. There is another cable going to the router that I assume is providing me with FIOS service. My question is whether I even need the coaxial cable since I have the same speed and service without it. (I don't get my tv through Verizon if that fact is relevant. Thanks for helping me understand.

If your internet still works then there is an ethernet cable from the ont to the Actiontec WAN connection. You don't not need the coax if you don't have Verizon TV but if you ever switch to cable you will need it so I would make sure both wires fit through the floor so you don't have to ever drill anymore holes.
