The details can be found in the following FAQ: Can I get an ethernet connection in a room with only coax, ‎08-02-2012 This customer had multiple damaged interior lines where they ran coax alongside/under baseboards using plastic nail clips and hex head clips (smashing the coax and bending it sharply around doorways) and the only option was to switch them to a wireless cable box for two televisions because there was no simple way to replace the coax cable. Hope this helps, and good luck. Try searching, Verizon Fios Community Terms of Service and User Guidelines. Compare what those numbers are when the modem is plugged in to the jack in the living room vs when it’s plugged into the long run.
