Re: FiOS - Ethernet Instead of MoCA!

His IP (and subsequently, his gateway) changed whenever his connection was switched from moca/coax to ethernet, as a result of the DHCP release/renew process.

Not all of Verizon's IP's are in the same (sequential) IP pool/subnets for one area.

Have to update my results post, I wasn't pinging my Internet Gateway. Here are the updated results after the switch to Ethernet from MoCA:

Verizon switched it!

Here is that ping difference to the first hop upstream router (note that the gateway IP changed):

Before the switch (from the OP):

C:\Users\username>ping 108.49.145.1 -t

Pretty interesting. So using the Coaxial (note you may need to if you have TV through FiOS) adds almost 2-5 ms to the ping!
