Slow Wi-Fi doesn’t cut it for a good gaming experience. Not only does that prevent you from even connecting to your gaming console, but once you’re in the game, just consider it game over with the lag you will experience.

The short answer to is MoCA is good for gaming is: Absolutely.

But let’s dive deeper into what MoCA is, how it’s good for gaming and why you want MoCA for your gaming setup.


What is MoCA?

MoCA stands for Multimedia over Coax Alliance. It uses the existing coaxial cables already in most people’s homes to create an Ethernet-like connection., reliable, super-fast Internet connection over the existing coaxial wiring already in your home.

How MoCA Makes Your Internet Better for Gaming

Because MoCA is a wired home networking solution, it delivers low-lag Internet connection, which is perfect for online gaming. After you’ve exhausted some other Internet or home networking fixes, turn to MoCA. In the time between deciding to get or committing to getting MoCA adapters, here are some things you can do to improve your Internet for gaming:

  • Check your internet connection speed
  • Reduce bandwidth from other programs and devices
  • Dedicate a router to gaming only
  • Place the gaming router in a good spot away from interferences
  • Schedule regular router reboots
  • Find the right channel on your router to connect to


Why You Want MoCA for Gaming

Gaming lag is the enemy. You know the frustration: right when you are about to take the shot, or dodge the shot, suddenly your network lags. Game over, and over and over. No thank you.

With MoCA, lag virtually goes away. It reduces and ultimately fixes gaming lag by improving your Internet connectivity.

A MoCA adapter is designed to give you better Wi-Fi coverage and performance throughout your home. When your entire home network performs better, gaming is a better experience as a result. A MoCA adapter is a wired network solution. A MoCA adapter like the Hitron MoCA 2.5 works great.

Because MoCA technology is wired, it creates a reliable, direct connection that eliminates any dead spots in your home. Dead spots = dropped connection = lag.

Even though MoCA adapters are a wired solution, they don’t make Wi-Fi obsolete. They don’t override your wireless Internet. By using MoCA adapters, you still get to enjoy the benefits of Wi-Fi, but better. MoCA adapters support and enhance your Wi-Fi network in a few ways that make online gaming better:

  • Faster speeds
  • Stronger, always reliable connection
  • Minimal wires and compact size to reduce clutter and expensive installation

If you are unsatisfied with your Wi-Fi home network performance and how it effects your gaming, you should consider MoCA as a solution. It’s a worry-free solution: No additional wires, no expensive installation or setup, always reliable. MoCA lowers latency (no lag) and improves connection speed.
