Thumbs up Many thanks to Xnappo

I just wanted to share my experience with MOCA bridges, and give Special thanks to Xnappo for the blog he wrote.
I live in a small house with a detached garage which has an apartment above (75’ from house) I was living in the apt. so all of my internet equipment is in the garage. Approximately 2 years ago I moved into the house and needed network connection. I had cable service to both structures from a common ONT (tap) and both are on the same account. I purchased 3 Actiontec MI424WR on Ebay after reading Xnappo’s blog. I took me 3 evenings to get everything setup properly, Im a contractor and had no idea what an IP address was. All worked fabulous until the week before Christmas. Comcast had “node” issues in my area and when their system came back up, my MOCA bridge wasn’t working. Long story short, I put a splitter at the ONT so my signal no longer goes thru it, and all is back to normal.
SPECS for my system
Surfboard 6121 modem
Dir 610L Wifi router
Actiontec MI424WR Rev D Moca bridge ‘transmitter’
