FiOS TV One Mini - Constantly Freezing on Ethernet
Enthusiast - Level 1


I am currently experiencing an issue where 2 of my STBs are constantly freezing at random intervals. I have a total of 7 STBs, 3 of which is connected via Ethernet and 4 connected via MoCA.

Coincidentally, the 2 boxes that are giving me issues are connected to one of the 2 main STBs. 

My network consists of this:

  • ONT -> FiOS G3100 -> UniFi 24-Port Switch -> TP-Link 8 port
  • UniFi access points

They were connected to my UniFi switch but when I was trying to diagnose I connected it to my G3100 directly and one of the boxes were working with no problems for about a week. However, I'm still having the same issue on the other one. 

I already restarted the main STBs.

Anyone have any ideas why this could be happening?

I can't seem to find the post anywhere. But I have read due to the verizon router's small NAT table there is a 2 stb limit on ethernet. Can you switch it with one that's connected to MoCA to see if problem still exists? Or better connect it with MoCA instead?

Hello, thank you for the reply

I will test that and check with you.

My question is, this was never a problem before until recently. Everyone was able to watch it throughout the year until the fall time, just about. 

You may be right, but I just haven't been experienced this issue and it's been about 2 years running it like this (3 STBs with ethernet).
