Internet-only setup using MoCA and personal(linksys) router

(477 Views)

Hello!

 

I've been doing a lot of research on setting up internet-only fios service using my own router but I can't seem to find the answer to my question.

 

I live in an apartment complex where I get coaxial cable to my apartment. I currently have cable internet so I have a cable modem and a linkys router to provide wireless internet to the apartment. Fios has recently been installed to my complex (yay!) and I believe it's delivered to my apartment via the coaxial cables. I imagine running ethernet from ONT would be impossible.

 

I'd like to switch to Fios but I'd like to understand the equipment setup first. Can I provide wireless internet to my apartment by a Fios Network Adapter or Actiontech Bonded MoCA 2.0 Network Adapter to the coaxial cable in the wall. And then connecting the adapter to my router via ethernet. Would this setup work?

 

Here is a simple text diagram of the setup: 

ONT--> Coaxial --> FNA or Actiontech Network Adapter --> Ethernet --> Router --> WIFI --> Laptop

 

If not, is there a way for me to use my own router to provide internet-only Fios service without buying a Verizon Router (G1100 or G3100)? 

 

I've heard people using the Verizon Router as a MoCA bridge with their router but that seems redundant since they are both routers.

 

Thanks in advance! If you have any equipment suggestions to make this work, please let me know!
