Interview: MoCA Technology – Extending Your WiFi with Cable TV Wiring!
“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.”
MoCA: WiFi Mesh in the Home Still Requires a Wire
“(Actiontec) MoCA 2.0 Bonded extenders delivered 800 Mbps or better downlink WiFi performance in all homes.”
Study: Home WiFi Mesh Products Work Better With a Wired Backbone
“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.”

How to Get Better Wi-Fi
“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.”

Review: Comtrend G.hn Ethernet Over Coax Adapter Kit (GCA-6000)
“For this test, I put the Comtrend GCA-6000 G.hn 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 G.hn adapter kit, which could only muster 344 Mbps upstream and 262 Mbps downstream.”

“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.”
Two Actiontec Products You Need

Actiontec ECB6200 Bonded MoCA 2.0 Network Adapter Reviewed
“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.”
Actiontec’s MoCA-to-WiFi adapter provides up to 1 Gbps
“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.”
