Here's the problem I'm trying to solve:
1. Need wireless connectivity in living room
2. Need a wired LAN in attic for my home office (a couple of PCs, printer, network storage).
Assume that the living room and the attic are so far away from each other that a wifi signal would be too weak in the livingroom if it were broadcast from the attic.
Another fact: there's already a coax cable running between the living room and attic
Here's how I thought it could be done:
ONT---coax --- to MoCA port on FIOS Router
FIOS Router LAN port < --- ethernet cable --- > Actiontec HCB1000 adapter---- > coax to the attic
coax in attic -> another HCB1000 adapter<--- ethernet ----> WAN port on the router in the attic
If the FIOS Router is 192.168.1.1, and the router in the attic is 192.168.2.1 or 10.10.10.1, would any special configuration of the router(s) be required to give the PCs in the attic transparent internet access?

In this configuration, you only need one MoCa adapter. The configuration you have on the middle line is not required. All of the MoCa network traffic is shared across all the coax.
and in the last line, you would connect to a LAN port, not a WAN port.
