COAX cable, Actiontec dying

(800 Views)

I know there are many conversations on this topic out there, but I haven't found one that answers my problem. I have Verizon Fios with TV. The OTN is in the basement, feeding 7 coax cables for room distribution. The Actiontec M1424WR Rev.1 router wifi is in the second floor office, getting signal from coax. The Actiontec is dying, and I had hoped to buy a router/wifi to avoid Verizon rental fee's. The problems, as stated in other chats are 1. getting coax to ethernet to get into modern router/wifi, 2. addressing the TV room box on demand/ guide issues. Has an easy work around been developed, or should I bite the bullet and stay with Verizon. As a point of reference, the coax to ethernet adapters are now around $100 (that I've been able to locate) , good router/wifi for large area signal distribution are around $175. and Veizon wants $15/ month rental or buy outright for $300. Thank you
