Hello people smarter than me! Like the rest of the world I'm working from home. Unfortunately I returned the loaner laptop I had and brought home my desktop. Unfortunately said desktop doesn't have Wi-Fi so I Googled and found the subject network extender.
I did check and my modem, the gigabyte one, is MoCA compatible. If I'm understanding correctly I should be able to hook up to coax and ethernet from the device to the computer. I can't get it to work on any of my outlets, including the one where my router works outstandingly well.
I'm not super tech savvy but I need help because I don't want to use vacation days due to lack of Wi-Fi.
Thanks for any and all guidance!
Wouldn't it have made more sense to just get a USB WiFi Network adapter for your desktop? Something like this, for instance.
It's only as reliable as your home WiFi signal is. I used one of these for a relatively old second generation i5 machine I was using as an HTPC until I got my Roku Premiere.
MoCA setups are finicky. You're probably better off talking to tech support for your Actiontec device.
