I'm switching from PC to Mac. I currently have fios internet and fios TV/DVR. I have Actiontec. Cable going in to COAX. Ethernet going
from LAN 1 to PC. When I hook up mac I will also have Time Capsule. Do I put ethernet to computer or to Time Capsule?
Mac can be wireless, in fact I already access internet with it. But I am changing it's location, getting rid of PC and so it does not
have to be wireless, as all components are in the same location - computer, time capsule, actiontec, printer, they are all
in same area. TV with DVR has cable running to DVR is in a different room. I've read some threads, and I have no idea if DVR
needs the actiontec.
Once I'm hooked up, will I need to download anything from Verizon?
I'm definitely a newbie making this switch, to any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks!
Here is a thread on Time Capusle and FIOS:
The Mac as a node on the network is just that, no extra software needed. I believe the Actiontec is needed for the DVR and other STB's as it provides the Guide and other data.
