It’s not a secret that a weak Wi-Fi signal makes connecting to the Internet a nightmare. A great solution is to go wired, but sometimes that isn’t the most desirable or convenient option. So, how do you get solid wired-like Internet and the convenience of a wireless connection?
The secret is Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) technology, which takes advantage of your TV’s coaxial cable wiring to create better Internet coverage in your home. With MoCA, you can convert your TV’s coaxial cable wiring to Ethernet. Alternatively, MoCA delivers Ethernet signals over the coaxial cables.
If your home or apartment building has ever been wired for Cable TV service, then you have coax in the walls. All you need is a pair of MoCA adapters.
How to get Coax over Ethernet to Work
To “convert” coax to Ethernet is easy. All you have to do is set up your MoCA adapters, which require coax wiring and an Ethernet cord. It takes two steps:
- Connect one MoCA adapter to a coax jack and into your router.
- Then, connect the other MoCA adapter into the device you are using to connect to the Internet with the Ethernet cable.
