    goCoax MoCA 2.5 adapter

    Yes, it does. It's the Unifi nano-HD I actually just took delivery of them today, so I'm still learning the features. The meshing as far as I understand it from the manual is only for APs that use a wireless uplink. Since both of mine are connected to the MoCA network, they won't need to use...

    goCoax MoCA 2.5 adapter

    Yeah, agreed. I was just curious to see how close to the theoretical maximum of 1Gbps I could get as this Linksys WRTAC1200 has been benchmarked and its ethernet interface maxes out at @ ~940mbps. It's possible it may be able to get a little more than 940Mbps. So all in all, these adapters are...

    goCoax MoCA 2.5 adapter

    Indeed. I was expecting much worse performance. The cable in my house is old and unmarked, but has a diameter of 6.15mm measured with my digital vernier caliper, which would make it RG59. That said, it's full copper core and some of the cables without terminators on them appear to be shielded...

    goCoax MoCA 2.5 adapter

    So question for @gocoax. The MoCA link rates page on my adapters shows the following: If I'm reading this correctly, it's telling me that the PHY speed is ~3.5Gbps. How is this even possible? I thought the max speed of MoCA 2.5 is 2.5Gbps? I mean, it's somewhat academic since it's maxing out...

    goCoax MoCA 2.5 adapter

    I recently received my gocoax adapters. Very pleasantly surprised by the performance. I thought it would be bad given that unfortunately my coax cabling in the walls is all RG59. Using iperf3, between my resource constrained Linksys WRT1200AC that is known to max out around 940mbps on ethernet...

    Locating cable modem BEFORE moca poe filter and splitter

    <facepalm> You're absolutely correct. Originally I had planned to relocate the cable modem to my office, which means that the splitter was necessary, so I bought one. In this case, it's in fact not needed and neither is the POE filter, since I don't need to connect the cable run to the...

    Locating cable modem BEFORE moca poe filter and splitter

    Confirmed: no MoCA requirement on the cable modem. I'm going to be deploying MoCA 2.5 using two Gocoax adapters which I received the other day. The MoCA splitter is a Starburst SB-2WMS-2.0.

    Locating cable modem BEFORE moca poe filter and splitter

    I currently have my cable modem at the point of entry under the stairs. I run an ethernet cable from the modem to the router in my office. Unfortunately it goes under the hallway carpet, which is not ideal. I was therefore thinking of moving it to the office, where the coax wall plug is right...

    Best Router for Packet Priortization

    Almost certainly....no arguments there

    Best Router for Packet Priortization

    You can just download and flash one of the pre-built images if you don't plan on customizing the base system. In this sense it is plug and play, assuming that you have a router for which a pre-built binary is available, and there are many. It should just work "out of the box". I customized it...

    Best Router for Packet Priortization

    I don't really think it requires formal training per se as there are lots of very competent self-taught people, some whose skills and knowledge rival those of the best. To build a basic self-compiled OpenWrt system, this is fairly easy to do as the instructions are quite clear and probably just...

    MOCA noob needs advice

    According to this web page the easiest way to identify the cable type is by the cable diameter. RG-59 is 6.15mm. My micrometer says my cable is precisely 6.15mm, which means unfortunately that it is RG-59.

    Cable modem question / forward path equalizer

    Hopefully this is the correct forum for a cable modem question... My cable internet connection was installed just a few days ago. I noted that the incoming line had a 15db forward path attenuator on it. Looking at my modem stats, with the attenuator in place, you can see below that 15db...

    Best Router for Packet Priortization

    Well, let me put it this way: if you're technically inclined then Openwrt is great. I have a beast of a router based on an Intel C2558 SoC which I built myself. It's a 4-core x86_64 with 16GB and RAM and a data center class SSD. It's been running my own customized version of Openwrt for 6 years...

    MOCA noob needs advice

    Just had a look at the cabling and I can't tell what type it is. The only thing printed on the cable is "75 ohm low loss coax TV downlead"....I guess I'll just have to try and see what happens. Thanks for all your advice.
