We are getting ready to add a couple of more MoCA adapters in the next few days. We live in a new home and apparently the coax outlets in the bedrooms (where we're adding MoCA adapters) are not terminated.
Comcast tech is coming Saturday to terminate two coax outlets.
I'm a novice at best with this stuff. I'm curious as to what "terminating" these outlets involves? Basically I want to make sure that after this is done, I can just plug the MoCA adapters in and we're good to go. I'm just unclear on what terminating is and how these outlets tie into our coax "network" throughout the house.
Hopefully that made sense.
I've read a bit about using a PoE filter and how that can increase MoCA network efficiency. Although our current system seems to work reliably, I was thinking of getting one of these filters. Has anyone purchased one of these? If so, where can they be had at, and secondly, where exactly would this filter be placed?
I *think* this is how our network is laid out now.
Coax outlet => Antronix splitter => 1 line from split to Moxi HD-DVR
2nd line => MoCA adapter (netgear) => Motorola Docsis 3.0 Modem => DLink DIR-655 wireless router
Upstairs living room
(already terminated) coax outlet => MoCA adapter => Moxi Mate
(to be terminated) coax outlet => MoCA adapter => Moxi Mate
Craft room (across hall from master)
(to be terminated) coax outlet => MoCA adapter => switch or wireless repeater
Would this type of network benefit from the PoE filter?
Thanks for taking a look at this and your thoughts, opinions, etc.
