    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...
