I am still on the fence between MoCa and just biting the bullet and cutting holes in walls and running ethernet.
I have probably a really stupid set of questions, so bear with me.
I use TWC as a provider for both cable TV and internet. Coax comes in from the ground and is split into 4 places outside the house, 1 going downstairs, and 3 going upstairs. For this purpose, 2 of the upstairs splits are irrevelant as I don't need them for MoCa purposes (already have ethernet in those two rooms). I want to run the MoCa between the 1 downstairs and 1 upstairs. Will that work? They are clearly split before they come into the house.
I do have an amplifier, but would set it up as upstairs->MoCa->splitter->cable modem/cable box, and downstairs->MoCa->amplifier->cable box(es).
I could potentially run the amplifier before the outside splitter, but it would be difficult as it needs power and there is no outlet anywhere around.
Also, we are running 3 cable boxes downstairs, and 3 upstairs, as well as the cable modem. All but 1 are HD, and 1 is a DVR. Would adding MoCa be too much of load?
