Re: [Northeast] My FIOS install

said by kryptonian:

interesting.....I have the same router as you. Yet, I dont have ethernet attached to the WAN port. My PC connection is on one of the LAN ports. Obviosuly the tech did this for a reason, but I wonder what the difference is?

Just MoCA WAN vs CAT5 WAN.

MoCA is only supported on up to the 50Mbps tier (maybe the new 75Mbps tier too). If you order 150/35, they'll switch you over to gigabit Ethernet to get full speeds.

Who said that?

If you wall mount it, the preferred orientation is portrait (long side perpendicular to the floor), same way as it stands on the base. It allows the most heat dissipation.
