Verizon FiOS Coax Networking Adapters Now Shipping! Yes, It’s MoCA.
Verizon FiOS customers are lucky enough to enjoy the fastest broadband speeds available nationwide, but now they can access their fast Internet through a WIRED network anywhere in the house using Verizon FiOS Coax-to-Ethernet Adapters. Produced by Actiontec, who also builds the Verizon FiOS BHR Router, the Verizon FiOS Adapter uses coax cabling in the home to enable an Ethernet port in any room of the house. Need an Ethernet port to connect your new Smart TV – no problem, put a FiOS adapter behind the TV! Want a wired network to hook up your PS3 to stream HD movies or download games – install FiOS in the bedroom! If you need 4 Ethernet ports for your Bluray, Xbox, Slingbox, Apple TV, just add an inexpensive Ethernet 4-Port Switch to expand the number of ports.
Most FiOS customers don’t know they have a MoCA network already running in their home so they can magically access their networks using this official Verizon-branded MoCA adapter (and other MoCA compatible adapters). The Verizon adapter (Actiontec model ECB2200V) is available online at various resellers including J&R through Amazon.
