Ethernet over Coax question, will this work?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A gentlemen in another thread was kind enough to turn me on to the concept of Ethernet over Coax, which I've been researching to solve a problem of not being able to run a cable through the walls.

So basically what you see above is the layout of what I'm looking to do utlizing the moca technology. The goal is to hard-wire the Apple TV downstairs and still keep my router/modem and NAS where they are.

Will this setup work and will it allow me to stream HD video from the NAS to the Apple TV? eek.gif

Glad you decided to go the easy route... biggrin.gif

Yes, it'll work. Although your diagram isn't quite right. If the coax run to the other room isn't being used for anything, you just install the MoCA bridge on either side, and connect it to your Ethernet network (so a patch cable from it to your router).

If you want to use that coax run for cableTV as well, then you split and inject the MoCA signal into the house wiring.

Here's a huge thread on the subject:

The coax run coming in from the left is where the line comes into the house. So literally this is all the network is running. I have no Cable TV, everything is streamed via the NAS and HTPC. So I just need to make sure I can get the internet to my modem/router and then stream backwards to the Apple TV.

So with this being said, where would I need to place the adapters? I'm still sort of lost on this concept, even after 2 days of research.

Thanks so much

It's a bridge in and out, so given the path now, I think your diagram is fine, except you'll add an Ethernet cable between your router and the MoCA bridge/adapter. Think of that first bridge as just another Ethernet device attached to your router.
