When people hear “wired Internet” the first things they might think are things like “too expensive” or “drilling holes in walls.” For some wired home network solutions, that might be true. However, with MoCA you get the best of both worlds: the benefits of wired Internet without the hassle of pricey and messy installation.

One of the best things about MoCA is that it is super easy to setup and you can do the installation yourself. You just need MoCA adapters. By design, setting up MoCA in your home is a plug-and-go experience.


Step-by-Step How to Set Up a MoCA Network

Setting up your MoCA network is easy and you can do it yourself. Here is what you have to do:

  1. Buy a pair of MoCA adapters.
  2. Connect one adapter to a coax jack and into your router.
  3. Connect the second adapter into the device you want to use to connect to the Internet. (You will need an Ethernet cable to connect to your device.)

That’s it. Your MoCA network is setup. No extra wires. No holes in walls. Just better Internet in your home.


Why you want MoCA
