Is the router downstairs near where the coax cables run to the rest of the house? If so then you might be able to connect it up without additional coax. If not then you need to additional coax to run from the router to your house coax and connect it with either a coax splitter or coupler. There may be one there already for cable TV.
You use the MoCa adapter on the other end of the house coax run. Connect coax from the wall to the MoCa adapter and an Ethernet cable from the MoCa adapter to your device.
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,

If this doesn’t work I may return the adapter and just get a telus wifi booster. Just wanna ask it has a one ethernet port at the back right? The first node (downstairs) is to connect it to the modem and the second (upstairs), is it possible to connect my devices with it and basically it will become “wired”? I do have a ethernet switch so I could connect more devices.
Yes, it is possible to connect Ethernet devices (except Optik TV) to the second Boost device, effectively using the pair as a wireless bridge.

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?
