I stumbled on this thread [dslreports.com] at DSLReports.com. It seems Verizon is giving away their older model FIOS routers for free. You just have to pay shipping ($5.99 for UPS Ground). The router order page can be found here [verizon.com].

Note that there are a number of revisions to this router. The users in the forums have noted that they were receiving the latest revision (MI424WR-Rev-I). This is the same model that I am currently using with my 75/75 internet service. I plan on using the extra one as a mocha bridge for my entertainment center.

This can be used as a MoCA bridge so you can connect another room to your main router via coax. You can use two as a bridge without Verizon FiOS or add one to an existing Verizon FiOS setup to add the room.

Instructions for using it as a network bridge: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r...ork-bridge

Can this be used as a basic router? Without having Verizon FIOS?

Pretty nice for MOCA bridges, though they are bigger than I'd like if deploying them for TV use.

Yes. Someone in the original thread ordered and was not a Verizon subscriber.
