There's an Ethernet port on the QIP7100 2 STB (the manual states that it's 10/100). Does it have any use? Specifically, can it be used instead of the coax connection?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Its there because Motorola markets to other than Verizon. But Verizon does not use it or activate it. Must be COAX and MOCA internet connection.
The same does not apply to the routers, most/all of which have a wan Ethernet and 4 regular Ethernet connections. The 4 regular Ethernet connection can be used. The wan connection can be connected by Ethernet to the ONT and used, but that does require you to call and ask for it to be activated. Note that those with FIOS speeds above 100 are connected that way. If using the wan Ethernet and you have FIOS TV both coax and wan connection remain connected to the ONT.
