Slow MoCa speeds over 1 gigabit

I can’t seem to figure out why I’m only getting ~150mbps speeds to my desktop over moca. I have two Motorola mm1000 moca 2.0 boxes and the gigabit internet tier. The cabling in the house is only a few years old so should be solid. Could I really be losing that much speed? I’m getting upwards of 600mbps to my Android tv box plugged into the router in my living room.

Anyone have similar issues or ideas on how to fix?

 

My desktop card is 100/1000 so should be able to handle all gigabit speeds from the moca box.

 

Frustrating and help is appreciated!

Re: Slow MoCa speeds over 1 gigabit

A few questions.

How far away are the two adapters from each other?

Are they bonded MoCA 2.0 or regular MoCA 2.0 ?

Are all your splitters MoCA compliant?

Re: Slow MoCa speeds over 1 gigabit

UPDATE 1/3/19:  I'm now getting speeds of 300-400Mbps in my office and bedroom rooms, and 650-700Mpbs from the main router plugged in directly.   I would still like to see a higher bandwidth especially to my office with my desktop computer (high end ultra fast desktop).   

 

Q: How far away are the two adapters from each other?

A:  The physical devices are only about 50' apart, however the cables run into the basement to the comcast wiring hub.   

 

Q: Are they bonded MoCA 2.0 or regular MoCA 2.0 ? 

A:  Yes, I'm using a bonded moca adapter (Motorola MM1000) -
