Router Wiring question

Message 1 of 4
(876 Views)

Gentlemen:  I have an existing Verizon router and just got a new one.  Not sure about the wiring.  Current setup is through a MOCA bridge.  The coax comes from my wall socket to the NIM100 MOCA bridge, which is connected to the router via an eithernet lan wire into a lan port on the router.  The WAN socket on the router is connected to the wall socket.  Unfortunately, I'm not sure where the wiring behind that wall socket goes. 

I just got a new router and wonder why not to plug the coax directly into the new router?  Can Any one guess whats happening behind the scenes here?  Or guide me to what to look for to decipher this wiring issue?

Ditch the nim 100 and just connect the coax to the router.  However I am a little confused by you current setup as it's not clear what the point is of the ethernet connection from the router wan port to the rj45 wall jack.

What connections do you have at yout ONT?  what is your provisioning, ethernet or coax?

The only reason for the NIM was if you had more than 7 STBs back in the early days of Fios but they do not use the NIM anymore. The only other time it was used was to supply an internet connection over the coax to a computer.
