Press Coverage

Press Coverage

“Extend your network through your Cable TV wiring…What’s nice about these products is that they work just as fast as Ethernet…at gigabit speeds.”


“(Actiontec) MoCA 2.0 Bonded extenders delivered 800 Mbps or better downlink WiFi performance in all homes.”


“Per the test results, Orbi achieved 300 Mbps or better in 50% of homes, while Eero and Plume had trouble reaching 200 Mbps, while the (Actiontec) MoCA 2.0 Bonded extenders delivered 800 Mbps or better downlink WiFi performance in all homes.”


“Actiontec Electronics has expanded its Optim Whole Home WiFi Solution, a cloud-based platform intended to let service providers manage home WiFi networks remotely.”


“Connecting these devices to my coaxial cables wasn’t difficult – it’s pretty straightforward where you need to plug in each cable, and as long as you have a power outlet available for the adapter or extender, you should be up and running in no time. “


“Even better, are wired extenders. If your home is wired for coax (cat 5), a coax adapter can create a wired connection from your router box to the are where you need coverage without having to run a cable. We like the Actiontec Single Dual-Band Wireless Network Extender and Ethernet Over Coax Adapter.”


“The Bottom Line…
If you need more from your internet connection then Actiontec has you covered. They offer a wide range of network extending and boosting products at affordable prices.”


“For this test, I put the Comtrend GCA-6000 kit up against the trusty Actiontec ECB6200 MoCA 2.0 kit I’m currently using around my home. While these are competing standards (and, depending on your home & ISP configuration, you may not have a choice which to use), it’s a great opportunity to see which is faster…The Actiontec MoCA 2.0 kit delivered speeds in excess of 800 Mbps on both upstream and downstream tests. It blew away the Comtrend adapter kit, which could only muster 344 Mbps upstream and 262 Mbps downstream.”


“#8 The innovative Actiontec PE500WLS Network Adapter stands out from the competition with a stylish bright LED light display and technology that is “smarter” than most WiFi repeaters, especially thanks to its pushbutton security option.”


“It really works exceptionally well!”


“If your computer does not have support for Miracast, there are other options you can explore. For instance, you can make use of Actiontec ScreenBeam USB Transmitter. This dongle and similar USB transmitters from other manufacturers enable wireless display on Windows 7 and Windows 8 laptops…”


“Gold and multiple award winners in Best in Biz Awards 2016 International include: Actiontec, …”


“Wanna get cable or satellite in a room that is not wired, MyWirelessTV2 can help you avoid an expensive rewiring project.”


“A modem agreement, modeled on the STB plan, features a commitment that, starting this year, 90 percent of the small network equipment purchased by service providers and sold at retail by vendors meets new energy efficiency standards. Signatories to this agreement include service providers AT&T/DIRECTV, Cablevision, CenturyLink, Charter/Time Warner Cable/ Bright House Networks, Comcast, Cox Communications, and Verizon; and manufacturers Actiontec, ARRIS, Cisco, D-Link, EchoStar Technologies, NETGEAR, Pace and Ubee Interactive.”


“Configuration is super simple…Speed over MoCA devices is generally much faster than WiFi…”


“The analysts forecast the Global Residential Gateway market to grow at a CAGR of 8.3 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the Flourishing Home Networking market…Other vendors mentioned in the report are Actiontec Electronics Inc., …”


“The Touch 90 is both a shared screen and a fully functional whiteboard.”


“The new ScreenBeam Touch 90 is an interactive digital whiteboard that can be accessed by anybody in a room with a Windows 10-supported device.”


“The Actiontec Screenbeams will be attached to classroom projectors for a wireless classroom experience that improves a teacher’s mobility around the classroom while delivering lessons. ‘This way they can walk around the room and they’re not tethered to the wall,’ Hardin said. ‘This makes them a lot more mobile, which a lot of them like.'”


“I absolutely love how portable this thing (ScreenBeam Mini2) is and how easy it is to use. Now we can have family movie night no matter where we are at in the world. My kids love this just as much as I do.”


“You know what else is so great about the ScreenBeam? You no longer need a Wi-Fi network or wireless router for this device to operate. As blogger, my husband and I are always bringing work with us. This has been such an important device for us to have.”


“Both gadgets were very easy to set up, came with clear directions, and had intuitive interfaces.”


“Actiontec and Best Buy are making it easier for us to cut the cord…the great thing about the MyWirelessTV 2 is that I can use it on my gaming system without having to run cables across the room when using a wired controller!”


“No messy wires, no tangled cords and you are enjoying cable tv or blue-ray within minutes of opening the box!”


“My favorite feature – The Wireless HDMI and HDTV connection is my favorite feature. This feature supports live HD streaming of content from the device to any HDMI device. It means, if you have two or three devices in the house or office, you can connect them using the transmitter. “


“I can’t count the times I tried to show my family a video I took on my phone and everyone hovers around trying to look at the small screen. All those little moments are now easily displayed on any HDTV with theScreenBeam Mini2.”


“The set up for MyWirelessTV 2 was simple and only required a few easy steps. It comes with everything you need in the box and no special tools require. All you have to do is plug the transmitter to the cable box and then plug the receiver unit into the HDMI source on our TV. That’s it! 1-2 and you’re done! I am so excited to never see those cables hanging down from the TV anymore.”


“There are two products that I recently had the opportunity to try out from Actiontec that I’ve fallen in love with and found them to be essential for my home. These 2 products, I believe, are going to be things that you will need and want in your house…”


“I recommend this device to everyone, it is great for all of the above mentioned reasons, streaming from other devices, viewing TV outside, and saving the trouble of running messy looking cables!”


“What do you get when you cross a full-rate ADSL 2/2+ modem, a 4-port switch and a 300 Mbps wireless-N router? A very happy home internet user …”


“If you are looking for a way to push AV to an average-sized TV, that has no easy way to connect to a source, you will find the MyWirelessTV2 is a great way to tackle the job.”


“However, there is a simple solution in case your computer does not support Miracast. You can easily make use of ScreenBeam USB Transmitter from Actiontec. This little device enables wireless display on Windows 7/8 laptops.”


“Keith Schoolcraft, CEO of A Couple of Gurus, says setting up meetings has become easier since the consultancy deployed Actiontec ScreenBeam adapters about six months ago. ‘We use it a lot when we present to customers who come visit,’ Schoolcraft says. ‘The wireless ScreenBeam adapters really clear up a lot of the table clutter.’ The outsourced network infrastructure company keeps the adapters active so visitors and staff can start up quickly.


“The Actiontec WCB6200Q Wireless Network Extender uses your existing coaxial cabling to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi network. It’s a snap to install and delivered solid throughput in our tests.”


“9 out of 10 stars…If you live in a cabled home and can’t face running Ethernet around the house, Actiontec’s MoCA 2.0 range is a real revelation. Plug and play with lightning speeds, they’re highy recommended.”


“If you want to travel even lighter, the Actiontec ScreenBeam Mini 2 Continuum Edition ($59) is a small, wireless streaming device that plugs into a monitor’s HDMI port; from there, you can connect the Lumia 950 wirelessly to the Actiontec, as you would any other streaming stick.”


“To me, MoCA 2.0 is as close as you can get to Gigabit Ethernet performance without the need to run Ethernet cable. Since many homes are pre-wired with coax cables, I feel MoCA 2.0 is the most reliable solution to provide stable and consistent networking performance throughout a home compared to powerline or Wi-Fi.”


“In the real world there are two types of WiFi extenders – those that use WiFi to connect to a remote extender and those that use cables – powerline, coax or Ethernet – to connect to a remote extender. Wireline to WiFi is often better, faster, more reliable than WiFi-to- WiFi. Coax-to- WiFi approaches Ethernet-to-WiFi in performance.”


According to Actiontec, these new MU-MIMO-ready devices are ideal for those who want a simple out-of-the-box solution that gives their home networks a performance boost (300 Mbps for 2.4 GHz and 1.7 Gbps for 5 GHz), as well as adding seamless setup options such as an auto sync feature for wireless router/gateway zero configuration.


Channel bonding enables the latest multimedia-over-coax standard to deliver throughput up to 1Gbps.


“Gold and multiple award winners in this year’s program include: Actiontec…”


“I think those factors render MoCA the superior alternative networking technology…”


” These awesome devices are easy to install in just a couple of minutes, and they work extremely well.”


“The voluntary SNE agreement’s signatories to date include service providers AT&T, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, CenturyLink, Charter Communications, Comcast, Cox Communications, DirecTV, Time Warner Cable and Verizon, and manufacturers Actiontec…”


“The agreement sets rigorous requirements that will improve the energy efficiency of small network equipment (SNE) by 10 to 20 percent compared to typical, recently-deployed devices and cover more than 90 percent of U.S. broadband households – roughly 80 million homes.”


“The distance between the router and connecting devices, as well as the number of walls and floors in between, make a big difference,” says Spencer Behroozi, vice president of product management at modem manufacturer Actiontec. While a Wi-Fi signal can travel hundreds of feet in an unobstructed space, walls and floors can cut that distance by half or more.


“The most comprehensive and effective Wi-Fi expansion/repeater solution I’ve run across is the ActionTec WCB3000N…”


“We love how easy and quick it is to set up, not to mention the reliability and performance are top of the line, no doubt about it.”


“Entropic said that its chips will drive Actiontec Electronics’ Echo Access Points, which is the whole-house solution that Bright House Networks is developing.”


“The Echo access points are supplied by Actiontec Electronics…”


“…an $80 Actiontec model so described has racked up a four-star average review at Amazon…”


“…Actiontec leads the way into the era of seamlessly transmitted HD video/audio with the ScreenBeam Mini2.”


“If you are looking for an easy way to show your Windows 8.1 laptop or Android device onto the big screen the Actiontec ScreenBeam Mini2 is a great option.”


“Intel showed off a $40 Actiontec adapter for use with TVs and displays.”


“To support the service, TDS is using Actiontec CPE at the customer premises…”


“Bottom Line…Actiontec’s Screeneam Pro is a Wireless Display adapter that also supports Miracast. You can use it to beam the contents of your laptop, tablet, or phone to a TV. It worked well for us when we used new-model Ultrabooks with dual-band Wi-Fi adapters, and it also performed well using a Microsoft Surface Pro 2.”


“If you have anyone on your gift list struggling to keep their game console, computer or other networked device online, Actiontec’s 500Mbps powerline kit (PWR511K01) is an effortless workaround to dodgy Wi-Fi signals.”


“This is a favorite gadget of ours.”
