MoCA Connection question

If I'm trying to create a MoCA connection, which outlet in the main splitter is best? I have the CommScope CSAPDU5VP with oulets to regular rooms and one labeled "-6dB VoIP Out" beside the main "In" connection. I've tried looking this up but cannot find direction. I'm not really sure what the 6dB outlet is for.

Re: MoCA Connection question

That’s a connection for a modem, it is separate from the other outputs. The interior of the commscope is like a two way splitter, one side going to the 6db port the other side going to the outputs, the 6db port doesn’t lose signal like the other outputs if the commscope loses power. That output also doesn’t pass moca to the other ports.Good luck

Re: MoCA Connection question

Installed a Motorola MoCA in our "office" bedroom to a coax outlet. Not overly difficult, but I gave up trying to split the signal to feed a TV in the room. The bedroom was not able, even with new Pods to test over 350 wireless and I need more for work. Hooked up through a Dell docking station to help connect two monitors. My plan is 1G but I rarely test over 600 even with an Ethernet directly to my laptop from the gateway. This setup tested 800mbps. Very happy so far. Far exceeded my expectations. We do have the latest MoCA ready Gateway and coax splitter. Thanks for the input.
