If you switched to FIOS then there is no DSL modem. But a router is normally needed instead. A ONT is needed, usually at the point service enters your house (can be outside or inside). The ont converts the Optical signal to conventional phone, ethernet and coax TV (if you have that service). It also support MOCA (Multimedia over Cable Alliance) although new install setups are usually Ethernet insted.

What you are trying to accomplish (using the coaxial outlet as a means of extending signal) is definitely possible using MoCA (not cable modems).
You stated that you wanted to avoid purchasing new hardware but I'll just drop this here for your reference, the fully plug-and-play device: https://www.verizon.com/home/accessories/fios-netw
Optionally, you could go the DIY route and pick up an old Aciontec Verizon router (in photo below on right). Ask around to see if someone you know has a spare one sitting around, or they can be purchased on ebay for cheap ($20-ish).
Then follow my instructions to make your own DIY network extender using the old Aciontec routers: https://www.justingoetz.net/docs/docs_actiontec/Ac

You are correct. The router speed test does not function if the Verizon router isn't your primary router on the network. The other, more trraditional speed test Verizon has, should continue to work fine.

I was not sure where to start either, so I posted on the forum. I found a section of the channel lineup with Community Access labels, so this may be the area to add the channel. I had a chat session with a verizon rep and I will pursue this further via email.

I would call back and ask to speak to a Retention department or you can say "Cancel Service" when asked by the prompt the reason for your call and then they transfer you.
It all depends on who you get from FIOS. I too contacted them with the fact that new customers were getting a better deal and i wanted the same. All i did was call FIOS help number, when prompted to say what is the reason for your call, you say "cancel service" which should get you to someone in the retention department. I was able to get it down from 84 to 59.

Verizon has no requirement to provide a router with a functional USB.
They happened to choose a platform that has it, but have chosen (most likely for support purposes) to not activate it.
If you don't have Verizon STBs, you can easily use your own router with functional USB ports.

ISP provided equipment on the DSL and FiOS side is typically managed using TR-069 / CWMP management platform. The changes may have been done in error by a firmware update, or from a support technician entering the wrong account.
The same rules apply with those using Cable Internet. If you use the ISP supplied modem and router, they can SSH, Telnet, and access OOB Web Administration by pulling up your account. You can't stop them from accessing your own modem, per the DOCSIS spec, but you can prevent them from messing with your router by keeping the modem and router totally separate.
Best to keep backups of your configs, and if you're not wanting the ISP to muck with your settings, to use your own equipment to attach up to the ISP's network. Fortunately, FiOS only uses routers, not modems.

You could always say "Agent..." after you get past the telephone number prompt when you reach the main menu. Even with the issues relating to the hurricane, wait times through that avenue shouldn't be any more than a few minutes. Of course, don't overuse it if you can get to where you need to go through the voice promts (Such as DSL Technical support) which is a simple stroke of 1 and then 2 on your numpad the last I've checked.
I also find it best to talk to the reps in a calm voice without a sense of urgency. They tend to help out a lot more when they aren't being screamed at or rushed to try and make a fix. Also, if you guys are having trouble with speed on your DSL line, post up about it in your own thread and I'll be sure to take a look at it.
