I have a question about MoCA. I'm planning to get the Ceton Q, along with a Ceton Echo, when they come out. I'd like to set it up with MoCA, as my house isn't wired for Cat5, and the power pretty much hasn't been changed at all since the 40s (though for that matter, I'm not sure the coax has either). I'd like to have the Q connected to the home network, which is WiFi. I've made a diagram of how I think it would work:
Black is coax, gold is Cat5, and blue is WiFi.
The MoCA adapter by the Q would be this
or similar, as it has coax pass-through so I can plug it in to the tuner. The other MoCA adapter(s) could be the MI424WR, as I need only Ethernet (in fact only a single port of it, I think), no pass-through coax.
I'd like to know if this setup would work and connect to my home network (or what I should change to make it work), what I could streamline (especially in the regard of the Modem/Router/MoCA adapter setup- could I maybe ditch the modem altogether, as I have only the router, no phones, currently hooked up to it? I'm confused) and a very basic setup guide (I assume it would be similar to the one in the OP). The WiFi router is the Netgear WDNA3700
Also, what's the difference between a MoCA adapter and a cable modem I could get from Comcast? The only two I notice are coax pass-through on MoCA adapters(which may be present on some modems) and phone jacks on modems.Edited by ImThat1Guy - 8/18/12 at 2:51pm
