WAN coax is 1000 MHz

LAN coax is 1150 MHz

Out of Band ( OOB which is how the STBs receive remote commands) is 75.25 MHz

TV channels range from around 60 to 860 MHz

I am wondering what are you trying to do here, add some MoCA adapters?

 

All Actiontec/Verizon MoCA adapters and extenders should be plug and play if you have a Verizon router and have not disabled LAN Coax.

 

Verizon WAN Coax frequency is 1000Mbps and LAN Coax is 1150MHz. You can find out for sure by logging into the router's Full Status/System wide Monitoring of Connections.

It's a bit complex to explain but I basically need to find a coax filter that would only allow FIOS cable TV frequencies from leaving & entering the g1100, do you possibly know what frequency fios uses for it's cable tv?

TV operates under 1Ghz, like standard CATV. The broadcast source for the TV signals is the FiOS ONT. The G1100 only operates above 1Ghz in the ranges used by MoCA.

What do you mean by FiOS cable TV frequencies? Do you mean Linear TV Signal? This signal comes from the ONT, not G1100. G1100 only accepts MoCA on coax.

 

To block all MoCA frequencies, you need a filter that only allows frequencies less than 1000MHz. Just find an old A/V splitter for the purpose of blocking MoCA signal perhaps.
