problems setting MOCA with Netgear moca adapters...
I myself am new to MOCA.
I have a couple TIVO's and are connected to my network via my wireless router. After Tivo made the transfer of shows available between my two Tivo's I tried via wireless that was quite slow. I had to wait a while for a 50 min HD show to move from one to the other. thus my MOCA endeavor.
I picked a couple sets of Netgear MOCA adapters.
Last weekend I finally decided to try to install them.
My house is wired with 7 distinct coax lines. All meet outside the house. Local Comcast installer has a 4 way splitter (only 4 lines are used). Actually only 3 TV's in the house. so I had a spare.
I connected the Netgear routers and nothing happen. The coax light would not come up.
I experimented with the actual drop from outside to the inside plug. (like the coax cable from outside the house that connects to my office) coax light came right up. Similarly I tested the direct coax drops on both my Tivos and it came up no issues. But when I tried to go from Tivo to Tivo the coax light would not come up. I dag deeper and found out that he 4 way splitter outside the house was up to 1Ghz thus filtering MOCA (supposed to be around 1.5Ghz). I went ahead and purchased these splitters:http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?...6-12704-85-334http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?...3-12704-85-332
I thought they would be fine. But to may despair they did not work.
I had purchased this 2way splitter beforehttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...X936SP0G5VX7H5
So I decided to test. Low and behold he coax light came right up.
I was happy it worked with the Monster brand did but disappointed it did not work with the Ideal brand.
My question is something I need to do on my side or I have to get a couple Monster brand splitters.
I was thinking of this one:http://www.amazon.com/Gigahertz-Low-...d_bxgy_e_img_b
I tried those as well and no cigar. the coax light would not come on...
Right now I have I have 6 different splitters and only one seems to allow MOCA to go through.
I seem to have a splitter issue. even though the splitters claim that they go up 2Ghz it does not seem to work with moca.
Am I missing something?
Finally is there a configuration in the Netgear adapter?
I am not sure where to go next...
Any help will be very much appreciated...
