When I signed up for FIOS lat Summer that is what I told them I wanted. An Ethernet connection. They wrote down on the work order to bring a specific model ONT that had Ethernet capability. Otherwise they would have brought a different model which was only capable of MoCA. And I've tried the Ethernet connection with the Actiontec and my Dlink router. The Dlink router beats teh Actiontec hands down. The Actiontec might work well with a few devices, but I have 3 dozen devices connected on my Network and with the Actiontec things were't as fast as they should be. Using my Dlink, all my connections are very fast and have no bandwidth problems like with the Actiontec.
