Verizon installed their FIOS router in my apartment a year ago and hooked up both the Ethernet and coax connections on the back of the router.
I am moving my routers around and I don't have a coax outlet where I would like to place the router. I tried connecting only the Ethernet and to my surprise it works fine. Do I need the coax connection, what does it do?
If it truly isn't needed I am considering returning their router to avoid the equipment charge and just using my own router (I haven't tested if this will work just yet). Would there be any reason to keep renting their router?
