Questions re MOCA Network Setup
Need help figuring out options for setting up MOCA network.
Cox cable user - internet, phone & tv
Currently have 2 coax cables coming into house:
Cable 1 - carrries internet & phone, goes from Arris box on outside wall into main cable box on outside wall, then thru Arcom FRS 50-6 device to cable modem, then router (in office)
Cable 2 - carries TV, connected to 4 way splitter in box on outside wall, goes to 4 rooms (3 bedrooms & family room)
There is an extra coax cable (disconnected by Cox when phone installed) in the main box outside which also goes to a bedroom where one of the TVs is located
Not sure how to set up MOCA network since cable modem and router are essentially disconnected from the rest of the coax lines. When internet was initially installed, only had one coax in from Cox that went to 6 way splitter. But that got changed when digital phone was installed.
Am thinking to reroute data/phone line to room with 2 coax outlets (one connected to TV, the other is the spare wire), then put cable modem and router in that room. Connect 1st MOCA adapter there to the "spare wire", with Ethernet going to router, then another Ethernet cable from router to second MOCA adapter (then to second coax outlet in that room) to feed internet signal back to the splitter with 4 cables connected (the "TV" line). Would then install MOCA adapters at each room and put MOCA filter in box outside on inlet side of splitter.
Not sure if this will work. Am looking for other ideas. Main objectives are to solve bad wireless connection in the room with 2 outlets (don't want to buy any more wireless equipment) and prepare for future install of DVR with cable card.
All help appreciated.
