Why is my HT-EM4 not working with some MoCA 2.0 devices?
If the MoCA LED on the HT-EM4 is not lit up, or you cannot access the Internet when using the HT-EM4 with an existing MoCA 2.0 device, this is likely an interoperability issue with the driver/firmware on the MoCA 2.0 device. Some older MoCA 2.0 devices may have issues communicating because they are using much older driver/firmware versions. This is mostly seen with older single-channel MoCA 2.0 devices and can be resolved by simply upgrading to a newer driver/firmware. Please contact your MoCA 2.0 device vendor to see if there is a newer driver/firmware available for upgrade.
After connecting a splitter to my network, it no longer works. Why?
Why is my connection speed so slow?
- Run a speed test of your incoming broadband service to ensure that the broadband service is healthy.
- Check for faulty/outdated/incompatible coax splitters and connections within your MoCA network that may be restricting speeds.
- Check that other devices connected to your MoCA network are not hoarding available bandwidth.
- Check that the Ethernet cable is Cat5E/6 compliant.
- Check to confirm that your device has a Gigabit Ethernet port (1000Mbps) and not Fast Ethernet (100Mbps).
Doesn't the pre-existing coaxial cable already have the capability of providing Internet?
Why can’t I access the internet when connected to the HT-EM4?
— Ensure that the coax cable is connected to the RF port with the picture of a coax connector
If the POWER LED is on, but the LINK LED is off:
— Please wait up to 90 seconds for the HT-EM4 to establish a network connection.
Why do none of the LEDs turn on?
- Ensure that you are using the correct power adapter that came with the device. Using a power adapter other than the one that came with your HT-EM4 can damage the HT-EM4.
- Make sure that the power adapter is connected to the HT-EM4 and the electrical outlet correctly.
- Disconnect and re-connect the power adapter to both the electrical outlet and the HT-EM4.
- If none of the above steps solve the problem, consult your vendor as there might be a fault with the device.
