I recalled last time I had FIOS in Massachusetts they used ethernet and moca 
was phased out. If you call up Verizon <<and ask for a 1Gig plan they will be 
forced to replace your old box and no more coax.

Thank you for thinking about this Wayne.  We had the ONT updated perhaps 5 
years ago with a >1GB plan.  The cable coming up from the FIOS box in the 
basement is now ethernet cable and not coax.  The coax is only used to go to 
the FIOS TV box from the router. (wired backhaul because that cable was already 
in situ)   The coax is split to the FIOS TV and then the extender.  So the 
wired backhaul for the extender is coax and not ethernet.  The new router and 
extender are a few months old.  The Ethernet switch is plugged into one of the 
lan ports on the extender.  The new extender (Unlike the old) throttles all 
traffic and the wifi at 10 mbs. If I unplug the Ethernet switch all is as it 
should be. The Vera controller is one device plugged into the switch. If I plug 
just that one device into a lan port on the extender it is back down to 10/10 
upload and download wired and WIFI.  I tried changing the coax (3ft cable) from 
the splitter to the extender but that made no difference.  I have not yet tried 
just unplugging the vera controller from the switch box and see if the speeds 
stay up.  I hated that switchbox but that was all the electrician had when I 
had him help me  fish wires to redo  my subwoofers and AV gear.  100 mbs is 
good enough for AV stuff for now.  I thought the MOCA adapter hooked up on a 3 
way splitter  (Fios TV box, Extender, Moca adapter) and put the culprit device 
on that MIGHT fix the whole issue.  Why the new Extender doesn't behave, I have 
no clue.
