The person that returned this MOCA adapter because they couldn't connect several computers to this device only needed use an ethernet switch (About $20) connected to the ECB2200V's ethernet RJ45 jack and then add their extra devices to the unused jacks on that switch. If you purchase a 4 jack auto-sensing ethernet switch you have 3 unused jacks (one was used for the input cable) for 3 ethernet devices. If you need more then there's also 8 jack switches (7 devices) available for a few $'s more. The switch handles all the handshaking and there's no extra setup required. Just purchase as many ethernet cables as devices so you can connect to the switch with your TV, a Blu-Ray player, a game box and/or computer(s). FIOS router at the other end of the coax is a MOCA device and so only one ECB2200V is needed. If not a FIOS customer then you need two adapters and you connect the second adapter to one of the wired RJ45 ports whatever cable router you have. Then make sure the coax cable is a direct connection between the 2 adapters or make sure that any coax spliters used will pass high frequency signals. (Higher than cable TV freq.)

Do not buy a splitter! The box includes a co-ax splitter, 2 short lengths of coax and an ethernet cable. Follow the instructions and connect the main coax input (from the wall) to the splitter. One end to your new ECB2200V and the other end to your cable box. After connection turn the power on and full wired connectivity is achieved. Total time to install 5 minutes and have running: 5-10 minutes.

I am giving this item a four based on other reviews in that it "works as advertized" as it is advertized as working for Verizon Coax. However, I do not use Coax for LAN connections, so I cannot vouch for its quality, performance, reliability, etc. for Coax LAN connections, that is where the other reviews come in.

I can tell you that Actiontec does not provide a way to modify the settings for this device and it does not support WAN Coax connections. In case you are unclear on this, newer MoCA specs allow for two MoCA data channels. Verizon uses one channel for your WAN connection if you have Coax coming from their ONT to which their fiber line attaches. They use another channel for LAN connections to provide network access to their set top boxes. Some or perhaps all routers that Verizon provides for FIOS have a Coax port that supports the the WAN or LAN connections and some or all support both at the same time. This device, the ECB2200V, which cannot be configured and ECB2200 cannot be set to the WAN channel that Verizon uses. Actiontec has announced the ECB3500T, bit there is not enough information available about the settings that can be set, so this may be LAN only as well.

I have only found two devices that will work with Verizon WAN connections. The NETGEAR MCAB1001 and the D-Link DXN-221. The NETGEAR MCAB1001 is cheaper, about $80 for a kit with two converters, but you only need one for the WAN connection. The problem with the Netgear converters is that Netgear does not provide any support, documentation, firmware or other downloads to consumers, so you get what is in the box and no updates forever. D-Link DXN-221 is twice as much for two and while their are support to sell single converters, a DXN-220, I was not able to find them. The D-Link device is supported for consumers and works well. Sadly I have not been able to find a single device that supports the WAN and LAN connection or any two MoCA channels for that matter simultaneously.

Before I bought this, wireless reception in one room was spotty and top speed was limited to about 50kbps. This unit functions as, what we old-timers call, an "Ethernet bridge". With this unit, an Ethernet-ready computer can be connected to an internet cable and function at top speed. In my case, speed jumped from 50kbps to >= 80kbps. The signal is clean and has very low "jitter". GAMERS SHOULD REPLACE THEIR WIRELESS ETHERNET CARDS WITH THIS.

So far I have been able to make one of these units work within my home's network (purchased 3). They are advertised as plug and play and that appears to be the case with new technology stuff. Our LG TV which is both WIFI and LAN ready was just that. I installed the converter, the TV prompted me for the security key and it was up and running. The other two locations, the computers are older and running running XP. These show there is a connection to the network at 100 mbps but will not connect to the internet. I contacted Verizon and was told they don't support these units. I contacted Actiontec and received no help. I would not recommend these units.

I was only half-expecting this unit to work. I knew that, theoretically speaking, it should be fine but I figured there'd be some problem, such as the length of my cable runs, number splitters, day of the week, something.

At my optical junction outside, I have one two-way splitter. The first output only travels several feet inside my house to another splitter, from which one output goes to the FIOS router and another goes to the DVR. The second output of the outdoor splitter travels 100' to another splitter, from which one output goes to a second FIOS DVR and the second goes to the Actiontec adapter.

To my surprise, the Actiontec worked flawlessly. I did nothing more than plug it in and wait several seconds. (No need to reset the Verizon router.) From that point on, I had an internet connection for my wireless access point.

I haven't tested the speed, so I cannot comment on that. I can say that there are no conflicts with FIOS traffic.
