My Environment:
I want to use my PS3 to access Netflix , HULU (via PlayOn) and the shows that are recorded in my PC (a combination of HD and SD). My PC is upstairs (where the cable modem is) and my TV is downstairs where i do not have any Ethernet port and rewiring is not an option in my home.

Various Methods Used for connectivity:
Tried Wireless G and N but was never able to stream anything from my PC. Then tried various power line products from Sling, Belkin (rated as 1000 MBPS) but was not satisfied. Belkin one worked quite well but was not consistent, something was interfering and impacting the performance as the output would vary wildly at different times. Then heard about MOCA technology and was initially skeptical but wanted to try it out.

Set up using Actiontec MOCA device:
Ordered these Actiontec ones as they are cheaper than Netgear ones. Received them and all the package had was the two units, two Ethernet cables, power cards and a sheet of paper with instructions. Just plugged them in with the following set up and within few min the set up was done and configured my PS3 to use wired connection.

Coax from wall --> Input of first unit ,Output of first unit --> Cable modem.(Office) and then plugged in the ethernet cable from my router to the ethernet port of first unit
Coax from wall --> Input of second unit,Output of second unit--> STB(Living Room)and then plugged in the ethernet cable from the second unit to the PS3.
Input is labeled as Coax and output is labeled as STB/TV on the two Actiontec units

So far did not see any degradation in the TV signal or the internet connection.

I used this device to connection to my FIOS Actiontec router, and without a few comments from people here, you'd never get this to work properly.

First, the "quick instructions" (the only instructions as it turns out) assume that you are using a pair of these only to create an ethernet bridge over your coax. Thus, using this to connect to your FIOS router, the instructions are nonsensical.

Second, without instructions, you'll conclude you put this in between your coax cable and set top box. This will not work, even though this is apparently the way it's supposed to work. You'll get interference on your TV, things won't work, and you'll be ready to throw it in the box and return it.

In reality, you take the cable from the wall jack and get it into a coax splitter. One split goes to the set top box, the other to the device. You connect the ethernet jack to the device, and you're up and working.

If you go to Actiontec's site, they have no instructions how this will work with an Actiontec's FIOS router, despite the fact that this is probably the best use of the device!.

Anyway, once you get it hooked up, as other have said, you don't configure anything. It just works.

So it's a great product, hampered by no instructions for many people, and no help on the web site.

It's a long review, so here's the executive summary:

Pros:
- plug and play (with my Actiontec MI424WR router)
- reliable connection (vs. WiFi)
- great bandwidth (vs. ethernet over power line or WiFi)
- can use the pair (this particular item) in a non-MoCA home to "extend" your ethernet LAN

Cons:
- not easily configurable

The review:

I bought the Actiontec MoCA adapters because I needed to extend my network into the basement where I was building a media room. Unfortunately, my house was not pre-wired for ethernet and my WiFi signal was spotty down in my media closet to use it effectively. So, since Verizon uses MoCA natively to distribute their IPTV, LAN, and WAN signals, I figured I could pick up a MoCA adapter and hardwire an AP/switch to it in the basement!

My concerns with the Actiontec product is that it is basically unconfigurable. There is no http server on the device that allows you to adjust the settings. I believe, however, that you can TFTP into the device, but I did not try that route.

Fortunately, for me, my gamble worked, and getting an ethernet connection in my basement was as simple as plugging the MoCA adapter into my coax outlet, plugging the AP/Hub into the ethernet port, and then powering everything up. The Actiontec MI424WR (default FIOS router) recognized the MoCA adapter immediately and also recognized everything attached to the MoCA adapter (and provided DHCP addresses to all devices). I have a PS3 and a

I have a 7 machine network in the house. I opted to give the MoCa technology a try after getting Windows 7 and set up three MediaCenter machines. With Win7 Homegroup there is more transparent baked in sharing of recorded TV, movies, and other media. Until the Ceton quad tuner card is released I am dealing w/ multiple AverMedia Duet 2 tuner QAM cards. Their HD playback from one machine to another was hampered however by my 802.11N network, too much interference and congestion. This shows itself as stu-stu-stuttering when trying to watch HD on the target machine playing from the host. Annoying.

I went w/ 3 Actiontec adapters, the twin pack and a third. A lot of the reviews here are integrations into an existing FIOS network which is great since they're all the same brand and coupled w/ an Actiontec router works fine. I was mildly leery to see if it would work in my Comcast triple play setup equipment. I have their [Moto?] Cable Modem/VOIP combo box. Very easy setup w/ the Actiontecs. Just connected one of them directly to the coax out from the wall, put a co-ax pass thru out from the Actiontec to the Cable Modem/VOIP box, Ethernet from Actiontec into my wireless 4 port D-Link router. Done. Then on the satellite Media Center computers you just do the same thing; on the Actiontec coax in from wall, coax out from the pass through to your tuner card on the back of the computer and then Ethernet between computer and Actiontec. Took about 30 seconds to get an IP once all the lights came on and I had connection.

Speeds have been a great improvement over my N network. Roughly 4 times. You're limited by the 10/100 ports on the Actiontec but that works out to about ~88Mb/s or 12MB/s on my system..
