Re: FiOS - Ethernet Instead of MoCA!

If you have their cable service you have to use MOCA. Also they will not convert you to ethernet only unless you have a 100Mbps package

the main bonus about Ethernet is its easier to setup QoS and other things with any user friendly 3rd party routers GUI than Verizon's with its stupid warning page every time you try to access a submenu and overly technical language

That simply is not true. I have FiOS TV and Internet. The Internet is 35/35. I'm using Ethernet to the Actiontec. I just had to ask.

NOT TRUE

If you have FiOS TV, you can use cat5 wiring for your internet, the router still gets fed with COAX for use with the TV services.

Anyone can buy their own cat5e and run it to router, and call to switch it to ethernet. LEAVE THE COAX IN PLACE.

Ethernet is optional at the customers request for all plans under 150/65.

Ethernet is required for the 150 and 300 plan.

For shits and Giggles, I just switched my internet from MocA to ethernet, I shaved off a whole 6ms off my ping. Will I ever notice a difference? Doubtful.

Stop talking out your ass. You're completely wrong in everything you said.

This is completely false. I have FiOS internet, TV and digital voice. Have the 50/25 package and am provisioned for ethernet. Just set up the cabling yourself, make a phone call, tell them you switched it over to ethernet and it takes about 15 minutes to get provisioned.

What do you have to ask for? I called in to support and they insisted on putting me through to billing.

After waiting on hold for 10 minutes, the billing dept informed me that a tech visit would be required costing me a min of $110. When I informed her that I read I could wire it myself she admitted that she was completely unfamiliar with the request.

I only have fios internet and want to do away with the coax run into my living room.

Run the ethernet, connect it up to WAN, leave both ethernet and coax connected, then request switch in the »Verizon Direct forum. When switch is made, router will reboot and pick up new connection.

Except for reboot, you'll have data connection before and after. You can't predict when VZDirect will make the switch, but it will happen.

After reboot, verify WAN connection by checking router main status page. Then you can remove coax connection.

I was replying to a specific scenario.

You're absolutely right that the MoCA LAN is needed to get data to the STB and DVR. But, I have FiOS TV service and don't need the Actiontec.

I don't use FiOS TV hardware, except for a cablecard and a DCT-700, neither of which are data-enabled.

Ah sorry, didnt see the post you replied to.
But the intent was more for others reading, who likely have TV as well.
