[Pricing] Re: Here comes the Router rental fee of $4.99

I didn't say anything about VZ installing NIM-100s. I was referring to the ability to run one's own router and still have connectivity for the STBs.

You made a blanket statement that the VZ router is required. I was simply pointing out that it is not, as many users in this forum can attest.

OK, in that case, good luck finding a NIM.

There are other MoCA/ethernet LAN bridges aside from the NIM-100. Many (including the NIM-100) are not so difficult to find especially on ebay.

For what it is worth there are currently many MI424 routers that can function as such a bridge available pretty cheaply on ebay as well.

eBay has lots of options, including used Actiontech and Westel routers, last one I bought cost 9 bucks. One can use any router they want and any Bridge they want for the Ethernet to MOCA part to feed the STB's
