Hello,

So I was provided a router from Verizon with this exact design:

There is a coax cable that runs into my house that connects to the Router's coax connector. Problem is when I want to switch out to a different router. I came across this product from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Actiontec-Ethernet-Over-Coax-Adapter/dp/B0022NHMZY

If I were to purchase this, I would just connect the coax cable to the MoCa, and attach an ethernet cable from the MoCA to the New Router's WAN port?

Coax Cable => MoCA Unit => Router Wan Port

I have one question though, a couple people who bought the above modem said they had to call their ISP to register their modem. Now why is that? My current Actiontec Router has a built in modem with a Static IP assigned to it (provided from Verizon). Wouldn't the static IP just carry over to the new modem/Router?
