Their original installation standards dictated that only the 1216 be wired with cat5, and all other secondary set top boxes be wired via coax.

Maybe a year or two ago, they changed it so that all the STB's can be on cat5. But they're very strict in that they can't be wired off a customer's router, only the MTS router. And in a case where there's more STB's than LAN ports, an MTS supplied D-Link gigabit switch is installed. BUT they don't want any internet connections plugged in at the same time on the switch.
