    Actually, you don't need the G3100. What I did was get a MoCa bridge, you basically connect it to your cable and to your router, and everything just works. Really simplifies the networking topology.

    Ordered my Gold yesterday, otherwise my network will be the exactly the same as yours (FiOS -> FQG -> Eero (bridge mode)). Should be awesome!

    Using a MoCa bridge does sound like more a streamlined and efficient setup than what I have. Out of curiosity, which specific MoCa bridge/adapter will you be using in your setup?

    This is what I had: Amazon.com: Motorola MOCA Adapter for Ethernet Over Coax, 1,000 Mbps Bonded 2.0 MoCA (Model MM1000): Computers & Accessories

    I've gone 100% streaming and feel totally liberated from their set top boxes. You should see the huge pile of cables, splitters, adapters, yada yada yada I was able to get ride of.

    I have the G3100 and my STB’s on a LAN segment behind the FWG.   DHCP is disabled on the G3100, FWG is providing DHCP to the STBs and it works great.   I have the G3100 with a static LAN IP (lan port connected to this segment - wan port disabled) and the STB’s DHCP reservations so the IP’s don’t change.

    Edit: BTW - This is using the G3100 as a MoCA bridge.   No need to buy one if you already own this.   If you are renting the 3100, that’s another story.
