Moca Enabled Cable Modem

How to tell if my cable modem is moca enabled?

The industry standard for connection to the internet is usually called xDSL, more specifically ADSL. If your service uses this you can’t connect a MOCA modem because those modems are purely inside your home network and not available from it. But if you have cable, there’s a good chance that it will allow the use of MOCA services due to recent upgrades in technology (probably DOCSIS 3.1 and higher). Getting someone at your cable company or with an IT background may help clear things up.


How to connect moca adapter to cable modem

Many cable modems are now supplied with a built-in MOCA adapter, and the installation process is done by your ISP. Don’t worry about it! It’s definitely an improvement on your DSL modem connection but the best way to connect to cable Internet will be by using an Ethernet cable. Make sure your PC or Mac has an Ethernet port (look on the back of device) and you can use any Ethernet Cable that comes in 10-ft or longer lengths. You have multiple options like Cat5e or Cat6 cables, choose one which corresponds with your needs. Some companies have created products specially designed for wireless routers that come with long coaxial connections and wall plugs in some cases so make sure to thoroughly research all available options and choose the one that best fits your specific needs.

Can i attach a moca adapter to the same coax as my cable modem?

Technically, yes. But depending on how broadband internet is installed in your particular home, the coaxial cable may be shared with other devices such as TVs or other WiFi routers. If you plan to use an Ethernet cord for a hard connection to the modem, then that way won’t be an issue at all. I prefer this method as it keeps wifi adapters off the same network as everyday living devices – and thus more secure! If you want to go wireless tho’, there are a few requirements for establishing a secure connection between the moca adapter and wifi router (no stand-alone modems). They must share password protection through either WEP encryption or WPA2 encryption protocol but not ID Protection – which opens up security holes.

Can i use the same cable going to modem to a moca?

he short answer is YES with a few caveats: firstly it has to be from the same manufacturer, secondly it would have had to been purchased at the same time and importantly you need not worry about interference as long as the converter was also bought at the same time. In effect what I am trying to say is that MOCA technology means that both ends of your cable must be matched so while yes you can plug in any type of modem into an existing MOCA setup, make sure they match in order for them work properly together.

Need to split signal between cable modem and set top box moca network?

Moca networks are designed to be used with other non-home use devices. As such, the signal is divided across many more homes than a single cable modem would be. If you have a video on demand device that’s controlling your TV and cable service wirelessly, this may not be an issue for you. However, it could cause interference with your Wifi capabilities in certain cases. Cable modem users are best off using their set top box for this purpose. If the provider supports it, there should be no reason why they can’t run both through one network connection or router and split them up algorithmically if necessary so that it doesn’t interfere with anything else hooked up to things on that connection/router.
