    Will MoCA Adapter Go Above Paid ISP Speed?

    Hello! I’ve read conflicting comments about MoCA adapters being able to go beyond the speed paid for from your ISP. If I have 100 mbps from my ISP, would this adapter bypass this speed and reach near gigabit speeds or is the adapter dependent on my ISP, remaining unchanged? Thanks for the help!

    Asus XT8 or Asus ET8?

    Hey all, wanted to get your thoughts on these two routers. First off a little bit about my needs, I have a 1000 down/30 up connection from my ISP (currently being heavily underutilized because of the very very old wireless router that I had laying around). My house is an older (~1960s) 2-storey...

    Best MoCa/DeCa adapters for RG-59 cables? (re: no cable tv/satellite)

    My home is unfortunately wired using RG-59 (instead of RG-6) cables but I'd like to extend the network to the second floor. I've tried using wireless but it's not stable enough and I'd prefer a hard-wired connection. I don't have any cable television or satellite so my RG-59 cables are...

    Help with MoCA Setup

    I'm setting up a MoCA 2.5 network at my house for the first time and have a few questions I'm hoping the experts here can help my with before I start.

    MoCA effectively operates at half-duplex internally? Performance using 3+ devices?

    I'm preparing to buy a new house and planning out my network. It was built in 2003 and has coax outlets in just about every room, so I'm thinking MoCA will be a good solution for me, at least until I can evaluate the possibility of running CAT6 everywhere. I've been spending the past week...

    Mixed MoCA adapters on same network

    Hello everyone. Thanks to the posts on SNB I started experimenting with MoCA. I’ve had really bad experience with HPNA and the inflated ratings, so I was pleasantly surprised that my two Bonded Actiontec MoCA 2.0 adapters were able to get 850+ mbps. Now I am looking at expanding this setup...
