I recently switched from Verizon FiOS to Comcast. When I was a Verizon customer I used MOCA adapters to extend my network out to the rest of my house instead of running CAT5. Last week the Comcast tech came through and switched our line over to Comcast and made sure TV and cable modem were up. Now via MOCA adapters I am no longer able to reach anything on my network or outside of it. I have tried hooking the adapters up with and with out splitters. My main cable line outside goes to a three way splitter before it enters my house so I tried hooking an adapter up there and testing and did not have any success. The ethernet light on the MOCA adapter lights up but I get nothing. The model of adapter I am using is Actiontect ECB2500C. Is there some kind of signal loss going on possibly? I am pretty green at this so please bare with me.

I think the splitters have to be two-way, if I remember correctly. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

I may be wrong but I think MOCA would work with FIOS like setup only. FIOS puts an ONT in your house which creates a whole house MOCA network. This is how their set-top boxes talk to each other. When I had Comcast, they ran a straight cable to modem router. From what I read, it should work with Comcast too. See this:
