Believe it or not, because you live in an apartment building may be a plus to obtaining better Wi-Fi. You see, most apartment buildings are already wired for cable TV, which operates on coax wiring. This same coax wiring can be used to establish an extremely reliable wired network backbone called MoCA. MoCA stands for Multimedia over Coax Alliance, which is the name of the group who sets the technology standards for MoCA.
Converting Coax Wiring to Ethernet
MoCA technology uses your existing coax TV cable wiring to create an Ethernet network to transmit Internet data. It’s secure, reliable and super-fast. So exactly how do you convert coax to Ethernet? By using one of two methods:
- Have a Router with MoCA built-in and one MoCA Adapter
- Get two MoCA Adapters if your router or modem does not have MoCA built in
MoCA adapters are an affordable way to bring Internet access to your PC’s, gaming systems, entertainment players and much more. MoCA adapters are plug n’ play set-up. Connect one MoCA adapter to your router and a coax outlet. Then connect one MoCA adapter to the Ethernet port of your device requiring Internet access, even Wireless Extenders or Access Points to boost your signal’s reach.
MoCA Technology for Better Wi-Fi and Much More
Better Home WiFi – MoCA adapters increase your network speeds which increases its performance. Enjoy full-coverage Wi-Fi throughout your home without the risk of spotty connection.
