    Either setup would work assuming the coax is all connected together via splitters. You just need one adapter per location you want to access it if that makes sense.

    Sounds like the quote of someone who doesn't actually want the work. G.hn over coax is another alternative that's a little cheaper than MOCA adapters BUT it requires the coax be dedicated to it (it cannot share the line with cable tv for example...

    Every manufacturer is going to have slightly different implementation of wireless bridges. Based on a quick google search it actually appears your specific router does not support wireless bridge mode (but other netgear routers do). I could be...

    For your purposes Cat5e or Cat6 ethernet cable shouldn't make a difference but given I think they are roughly the same price you might as well get Cat6 (technically it's less susceptible to interference but not sure how much that translates any...

    I missed what GPU it came installed with. Sounds like a win-win then and solid setup for the intended purpose.

    It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If you want all the access points working in the same "ecosystem" with one management interface, then no. Could you probably piecemeal multiple devices together and create wireless bridges...

    Looks like it is the first gen google wifi device. I don't have any experience with these but it sounds like you set it up correctly. My understanding is you setup the first device, one ethernet port becomes the WAN port, the other is a LAN...

    I'm not familiar enough with them, but depending on the vendor would swapping out a video card void your warranty? I'm picturing one those "do not break or your warranty will be void" stickers on the case that prevents you from opening it (if you...

    The biggest advantage of using the same SSID is your device will handle roaming between the access points without user input. It should be relatively seamless on the user end and will latch on to whatever has the strongest signal.

    Good to know. Seems like once I get the chance I'll start this out small and simple to prove the concept before I purchase too many moca adapters. I'll update the thread when i do.

    It would be helpful to understand what the "wireless hubs" in order to troubleshoot. You mentioned "comcast mesh units"? Is there a model number or something on them you can google? Is this an apartment setup or a home? Do you know where the ONT...

    ep3w replied to the thread Verizon FIOS / Moca Network.
    I think i'm slowly starting to understand this more. According to DSL reports the verizon router includes two MOCA bridges. -A MOCA WAN bridge which provides coax connectivity between the ONT and the router. -A MOCA LAN bridge which provides...

    ep3w replied to the thread Verizon FIOS / Moca Network.
    Thanks for the reply. My understanding of the verizon STB is that it relies on both the coax from the ONT and the moca network for full functionality so I cannot separate them. If the STB is connected direct to the ONT it will work but the guide...

    The existing network consists of a verizon router (G3100) connected to the ONT via coax. Verizon limits the coax connection to 100mbps/100mpbs. Primary goal is to connect a router to the ONT via ethernet for increased speed (200mbps/200mbps) and...
