My question would be, can I still use the Moca Functionality of the router if I have the router configured to get to the internet (dhcp) though the Wan port. Does anyone else have experience with this? My hope is to plug in the cable modem find it works and then attach it to the wan port on the router and update the router settings to grab an ip though the wan port and not though coax as it currently does. Would I still be able to use the Moca on the router with this setup? Currently all four of my minis connect to the fios router and I'm hoping this will work.
Sorry if this is confusing.
It should work fine. I have that setup in my second home, where Mediacom (a company that exists to make Comcast look good) provides service. I'm using a AT Rev I, from my other house that has FIOS as a router, plugging the DOCSIS cable modem into the AT's WAN port. No need for a factory reset, just power it off, hook to the cable modem and the AT will autodetect (default setting-it can be turned off) whether the WAN connection is ethernet or coax.
My setup is Moto cable modem hooked to Mediacom, AT rev I, a Roamio Plus, two minis and an AT rev F set up as a bridge/second access point on the coax.
