When I hooked the adapters up on my coax lines, the power LED and the Ethernet LED light up, but the Coax traffic LED does not, indicating network traffic is not being transmitted between units. I tested the units by linking them directly together by coax (as suggested in other reviews) and the Coax LED will light in that configuration, so the problem is not a defective unit.
As to my particulars, I have a four bedroom, 2800sf house with 6 cable outlets and Cox Communications is my provider. I have at least three two-way splitters with a 1 Ghz limit on the high end outside my cable box and a four-way splitter/amplifier at my box, which also has a 1Ghz limit on the high end. And while it may be possible to replace the splitters outside the cable box with 2.3 Ghz splitters, I'm not sure it's possible (or even kosher) to replace the splitter/amplifier at the box with one that operates with a higher top end frequency.
As to alternative solutions, I've previously tried a single wireless N router (insufficient coverage and signal throughput) and a wireless N router with a separate Hawking wireless N range extender (would not configure). I was avoiding powerline units, thinking Coax adapters would have fewer variables to foul the transmission, but looks like that my be my last option to get that darned video-over-internet and home server signal from one end of the house to the other. Netflix, your 9.99/mo instant streaming service is proving to be quite costly...
In the box is a small setup flyer, which doesn't describe my intended use case at all, and in fact only served to confuse me. There's a slightly better user manual PDF available on the Netgear site, but it's only slightly better.
Configuration of this device can only be done from a Windows system, because you have to run a Windows-only executable from Netgear on the included CD. It's a good thing I had a Windows VM ready to go, because otherwise this would have been a problem.
There are a few crucial things you have to do in order for this device to work with the Verizon FiOS ONT at all. One, you have to find the "Coax interface password" from the Verizon router's admin pages, and enter it as the Netgear's "privacy / encryption" key. Two, you must explicitly release your DHCP lease from the Verizon router! If you don't do this, it will be two hours before your new router can get a DHCP lease. Three, back in the Netgear configuration settings you have to choose 1000MHz under "channel" and "All Pass" under "Diplexer". if you carefully do all of these things, the Coax LED will light up and your router, connected to its Ethernet port, can get a DHCP lease from Verizon.
Overall I would have given it a better rating, but I gave it 3 stars for being difficult to configure, not having a Mac or Linux configuration utility or a web admin interface, and only supporting 8 character or less admin passwords.
