Convert my co-ax to ethernet

I need to convert my inbound Verizon FiOS connection, which terminates on the router via co-axial cable, to ethernet. I've found adapters out there for a couple bucks, but will they actually work?
I'm running a number of VoIP-pbx devices in my network (which is actually a home-based telcom lab) behind a VZ FiOS connection. For a number of reasons, the FiOS router (Actiontec) has some issues with certain types of packets, and there is another firewall/router device that I'd like to use.
The problem, of course, is that none of the devices I'm using has a co-ax termination. Will one of these little $5 adapters work? Or do I need something more complex to do the job. I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't, and my google-fu has so far not gotten me an answer.
Thanks in advance for any ideas/recommended solutions.
