If the MoCA port on the T3200M is already in use, then you may run into problems. This happens in some fibre installs where the T3200M is installed in a different location than where the fibre comes in,
I have a related question.
Does Moca work as a broadcast network and can have multiple moca devices on the coax talking to each other as long as the coax cable is all connected? (like the old Thick/thin ethernet from the 60's and 70's)?
Or is it a point-to-point, for only two devices? Like a patch cable. For every pair of devices I need a separate set of coax to connect them.
I ask because I want to use it to connect all the Wifi Boost units to Moca so they do not use Wifi to talk to each other thus saving wifi bandwidth for my wifi devices. Some of the units have no where to get wired ethernet from but could get connected via coax.
I just got my install done (upgrade to pure fibre).
According to what was said and done, moca is a broadcast network not a point to point.
I wanted to use it for Wifi boost backhaul traffic to preserve wifi bandwidth for my wireless devices. I was told this was not supported because it could affect Optik TV quality of service. So, the optic TV is using moca which still gets some traffic off Wifi. (One unit was wireless and is now on Moca.)
But I don't understand how having Optik TV on Ethernet/Wifi with a WIFI network with wired backhaul could be worse than ethernet/Wifi where the Wifi also used Wifi (the way it was). Insights, comments? Is this only because Optik TV problems become immediately visible whereas a lot of wireless device usage problems are not always visible so we don't know when "small/brief" problems occur?
I haven't played with this stuff for a while, but as I recall you can have up to 16 MOCA devices in a coaxial network and they can be Ethernet RJ45 output at the user device (like a computer, set-top box, xbox or TV) or there is a version that converts to a WiFi (wireless) output if you need to extend wireless to a poorly covered area. Google Actiontec MOCA (TELUS uses ECB6200) and you'll find various models and configurations. Many people like wireless but as more and more devices in your home compete for wireless spectrum you'll see a drop in speed and notice "pixelation" problems on your TVs, so really MOCA is a solution for fixed devices like desktops, XBoxes and TVs, while wireless should be reserved for smartphones, laptops and the like. I have a combination network where I use MOCA in my 2 storey 3000 sq ft home and use a wireless repeater to get to my shop and garage for the devices located there, the system works much better than pure wireless. That's my $0.25 worth for now...
