Looking for official Xfinity documentation or advice on setting up MoCA connection with a XB6-A
I want to run an ethernet connection from one of my Coaxial ports in my home office instead of running ethernet throughout the home. I’m trying to piece together how this all works.
- I have a Multi-room DVR filter connected outside to the Coaxial cable. Is this considered a MoCA filter?
- Inside the home the main line is connected to a MoCA compliant splitter that feeds lines throughout my home.
- My research tells me I need a hook up an additional MoCA splitter at the Coax outlet that I intend to use.
- My research says that the MoCA splitter at the home office Coax outlet has to be rated over 1000Mhz, so that it doesn’t interfere with the cable TV. Does it require to be over 1000 Mhz?
- My findings also say that I need to purchase a MoCA Network adaptor. I’m assuming that a 2.5 GBPS adaptor is a good speed for the connection.
- At this point my research tells me that the MoCA Network adaptor can be connected into one end of the MoCA splitter and the cable to the tv can be hooked into the other connection. Is this correct?
- Does enabling MoCA degrade the performance and speed of any Coaxial connections throughout the home?
- Will an unmanaged POE switch connected to the MoCA adaptor run similar to a switch that was connected directly to an ethernet line?
- What settings do I need to set inside the gateway to enable MoCA?
- Are there any drawbacks to using MoCA?
