I had FIOS installed a few months ago. When the installer did the install he turned on the ethernet port and hooked everything up. So the actiontec connects via ethernet to the ont and then the coax is connected to the actiontec to allow the STBs to work properly.
I have the multi room dvr but don't like it too much and my brother just gave me a tivo that I want to use instead. The Tivo needs an ethernet connection but there is only a coax connection at that location. So I was thinking of moving the actiontec near the tivo but it would have to connect via coax.
I powered down the actiontec and unplugged the ethernet cord. I then turned it back on hoping that it would connect via the coax to the ont but that didn't work. Do I need to call to have them turn on the coax? I haven't tried powering down the ONT, would that work?
