Data Port (Ethernet) on ONT

Message 1 of 2

I currently have a MoCA set up on the Fios router, i.e., there is a coax cable connected to the router. I would like to use my own router which means using the data port (ethernet) from the ONT. 


The Fios service was originally installed in 2012. Do I need to request Verizon to enable the dataport on the ONT or is it active?

Yes you have to call Verizon to enable the ethernet port. The ethernet port is disabled when ONT is on MoCA.
