Fioptics TV service with Ubiquiti Setup

At this point, these are more notes for fixing it between upgrades. I use this so that I can hook my UniFi Security Gateway 3P directly up to the ONT and allow all video services to work correctly on my network, with VLANs.

There are too many references to remember on how I built this over the years, but a lot comes from multiple articles on DSL reports, along with things friends have done over time.

My Home Setup

I have multiple networks setup at my house, but in this scenario I will be using my “Home” network, which has the following details:

  • Network Name: Home
  • VLAN: 2
  • Subnet: 192.168.1.1/24

I have the following equipment in my home also that will be used for video:

  • UniFi Security Gateway 3P
  • UniFi Switch 24
  • Actiontec 5240 MoCA Adapters
    • One of my STB has access to Coax, but no Ethernet, so I use a MoCA adapter being my switch and another in front of the Cable Box)
  • Amino Cable Box
    • Entone and ZTE Cable Boxes could be used also. Those have MoCA built in, which reduces the need for a MoCA adapter connected to the Cable Box.
    • An additional note. The Amino Cable Box is wireless, but requires WPS to sync up. Ubiquiti does not support WPS, so they will need to be connected up with Ethernet (or a MoCA adapter).
