Rats that you have FIOS TV too, because as noted at
Internet only: The tech will install the FiOS Quantum Gateway in order to verify that everything is working correctly. Once the installer has verified that you are receiving your provisioned speeds, you can replace (and return to Verizon, if you're renting) the FiOS Quantum Gateway. When swapping out your primary router be sure to release your WAN DHCP lease or you may have trouble acquiring a new WAN DHCP lease.
TV and Internet: Since FiOS STBs rely on MoCA LAN for Guide Data and VOD, most alternative configurations include the Actiontec or FiOS Quantum Gateway in a primary or secondary role as a MOCA bridge for TV service. You do not need a Verizon router for CableCard devices (such as the TiVO) as they do not get their guide data from Verizon. Note that if you have Quantum TV Service, an Actiontec Rev. I or FiOS Quantum Gateway is required to activate and use the STBs.
Unknown how true the info at
If I were you, I would ask someone else who has FIOS TV and Internet. That could here on Verizon's official message board, the DSLR FIOS message board or elsewhere (where that may be).
It is mandory that the computer:
a) has two NICs (as need be get another NIC).
b) be a spare that works.
Why a spare, at least two NICs, one of the NICs must be wired you ask. Keywords: DIY NAT router.
Turn a normal computer into acting as a NAT router.
