I no longer use Directv, the the line with the orange stripe is a future fiber line that hasn't been dropped into neighborhood yet. Windstream...

    MOCA adapters worked great for 2 days, now “unidentified network” for Ethernet.

    I have tried many different potential fixes on my PC. command prompts such as ipconfig /release, /renew, /dnsflush, etc. Troubleshooter, device manager -> Network Adapters. Control panel options, network & ethernet, even did a factory reset on my computer including a disk clean. Nothing works...

    Does Arris MEB1100 MoCA adapter have a firmware update?

    I'm using an Arris MEB1100 MoCA adapter to bridge between my Frontier fiber ONT and my Google Nest wifi network. Mostly it's working great but twice since I installed it I've lost internet access for no apparent reason. Both times I was able to restore it by cycling power on the Arris device...

    Frontier FCA251/FCA252 networks limited to 2 MoCA nodes when operating at 1475-1675 MHz ?!?!

    TL;DR: Frontier FCA251/FCA252 networks appear to be limited to 2 MoCA nodes when operating at 1475-1675 MHz I went through several iterations of different combinations of 3 FCA252/FCA251 adapters, operating at 1475-1675 MHz, attempting connection: any pair always connected if 3rd was powered...

    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!

    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).

    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...
