Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The main reason I bought this product was to get rid of my Verizon Quantum Gateway Router. I recently upgraded my Verizon internet to their "Gigabit" plan which they run a cat6 cable from the ONT directly to the router. This means if you are on the internet only plan, you can use any router you like.
Recently I upgrade my router to the Netgear Nighthawk X10 router and it was plug and play, no config needed. Since I do have a cable box this did require me to use the Quantum router as a bridge to still provide the STB with internet. NOT ANYMORE.
With this adapter, I was able to completely remove the Verizon Quantum router from the loop and not use it at all. What you need to do follows:
1. Configure the MOCA bridge as Amin M. Astaneh said in another review
To do so you will need to connect to the devices one by one over Ethernet:
* manually configure your interface for 192.168.144.2, netmask 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.144.1
* plug your computer directly into the adapter using an ethernet cable
* connect to 192.168.144.30 in your browser
* go to Configuration and change the RF channel to a different value. I believe I used value 1600. You can also take the opportunity to set a
new PSK to encrypt the traffic being exchanged on the MOCA network.
You will know that the procedure was successful if:
* the adapters still display green link lights when plugged into coax;
* the Verizon router does not show the Actiontec devices as DHCP clients.
These devices are an excellent option if Powerline isn't working for you and your house is wired with coax. see less
2. Plug your Ethernet into your WAN port on your new 3rd party router ( might have to do a DHCP release to get this working, I did not)
3. On the Coax port labeled "Coax IN" plug the coax cable into the bridge that is coming to from the ONT box.
4. On the Coax port labeled " TV/STB Out" plug the coax cable into the bridge that is coming directly from your STB.
5. Plug an Ethernet cable into a LAN port from your 3rd party router into the bridge. At this point, you should now have the Coax and Power light on the MOCA bridge lit up.
6. reboot your STB(s) ( I only had one but this should also work if you have multiple STB's in a loop).
After this, you should have your STB rebooted and working fully ( minus the caller ID on your TV for any landlines, I don't use this feature so I cannot speak to this functionality but this is what I have read from other sources. Take it with a grain of salt).
I cannot speak for the reliability of the Actiontec MOCA bridge just yet but What I do know that it is working as is intended running NO Verizon hardware ( with the exception of the STB.) I will update this review after 90 days or so to speak to this portion, but for now, it gets 5 stars! Stay tuned.
I researched for hours online trying to figure out how to set up cable internet with MoCA and OTA (over the air) antenna but never got any clear answers. I saw many diagrams but none fit my setup or explained it well. So I spent hours trying many different configurations and figure out some details.
First, here is a list of the inputs I was trying to network/route:
- Internet only from provider Comcast (NO cable TV)
- OTA antenna
I have ONLY internet coming from the provider into my house (I have no channels coming through cable TV). My router and cable modem are on the second floor with my computer but I wanted to have wired internet for all my streaming devices in the basement. Also, I wanted to use an OTA antenna but the TV (TiVo) was in the basement and I had better reception with the antenna on the second floor. I am renting the house and it only has Coax cables running through the house so I had to do this with only the Coax cables that were installed.
What I discovered from my experimenting and what was not mentioned on any forums is the following: The Comcast internet signal (internet only from my provider) coming into my house shared a similar frequency as the OTA antenna. I could not have both of these signals crossing the same coax cable at the same time. The MoCA network signal and Comcast internet signal could exist on the same coax cable (which is required for setting up the MoCA).
So I first set up the MoCA network. I now had the MoCA network signal (which contains the internet) AND the Comcast internet signal (internet only, no cable TV signal) on the Coax cable network.
I then wanted to send only the MoCA network and the OTA signal to my TV (TiVo box). This is only possible if I remove the Comcast internet signal and replace it with the OTA signal. So I used a diplexer to solve this problem. I took one of the Coax cables coming from the splitter (see diagram) which contained both the MoCA and Comcast internet signal and plugged it into the SAT input of the diplexer. What this does is removed the Comcast internet signal and allow only the MoCA signal to pass through. Next, I connect the OTA antenna to the VHF/UHF input of the same diplexer. There is now a combined signal of the MoCA and OTA antenna going out of the diplexer. Run a coax cable from the output of the diplexer to the input of the MoCA device. Now you have the OTA signal coming out of the coax on the MoCA adapter and internet coming out of the ethernet port of the MoCA adapter.
Again, let me state this clearly. If you have Cable TV coming from your provider this will NOT work. This will work if you are receiving ONLY internet from your provider.

Splitter: BAMF 4-Way Coax Cable Splitter Bi-Directional MoCA 5-2300MHz
Switch: NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Mbps Switch (GS308)
POE: Filter, MoCA "POE" Filter for Cable TV Coaxial Networking ONLY
Router: ASUS (RT-AC68U) Wireless-AC1900 Dual-Band Gigabit Router
Modem: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem - Retail Packaging - White
-You also need to buy and install a MoCa friendly splitter, and a MoCa filter.
-Without the right splitter, the MoCa devices will not be able to talk to each other and will be useless.
-Without the filter you neighbors will be able to steal your data. The filter goes on the port of the splitter that connects to the outside.
Top reviews from other countries
Enter Moca 2.0 (ECB6200). Night and Day. These things worked great out of the box. I have a gigabit network and my real-world speeds between PCs is 940Mbps. It's as fast as you're gonna get.
Please note, the price advertised here is ungodly too high. You can get them cheaper (and new) on ebay for $80 per pair (2 pack). Yes $80 CAD.
Anyway, there are two versions of the ECB6200. The v2A and v2C. The 2C is the newer model and has vents on top (as u see in this product picture). It already comes with the latest firmware. Don't make the mistake asking support to give u a firmware that you think is a higher version (the v2A firmware has a higher # than then the 2C) because it will cause your 2C to act erradicatly (which can be fixed by reinstalling its original firmware).
Also, you can access its admin page via 192.168.144.30 -- you will need to set your NIC card with a static IP with the gateway set to 192.168.144.1 .. Not much to do in there besides check the stats.
Also, other things to note. In the adapter's admin page under Node Info don't be concerned if your Phys Speed is 600Mbps+ ... due to bonding it means you are 600 x 2 = 1200Mbps. If you are below 600 it means you have some issues on your coax, which is fixable e.g. you may need a moca filter, you might have one or more DVR units using the MOCA frequency, or you simply need a terminator on your moca adapter. All of these are simple fixes.
Sorry for the rambling and the raw review. I'd clean it up and make it more coherent but i am not sure anyone will ever read this.
Although the MoCA adapters can be a little touchy when it comes to perfect coax cable prep and condition, the speed really does blow Powerline out of the water. My internet connection is 300/300mbps, and I've seen as high as 330 in either direction with MoCA. In most cases, the Powerline is sufficient (gaming consoles, 1080p streaming), but to fully utilize the 300/300 internet connection, it was either MoCA or start pulling some CAT7 cable to futureproof the home network.
These should be plug-and-play for the most part, again depending on the coax wiring in your house. That being said, they definitely deliver much higher network speeds than Powerline, as there are fewer issues to worry about (load on the electrical system, jumping circuits). NOTE: My internet comes in through fiberoptic so the coax infrastructure was completely free for MoCA purposes.
I plugged the first adapter into the coax outlet/router upstairs and the second adapter into the coax outlet/laptop downstairs. This did not work. The coax light was not lighting up on the adapter. This is because the coax cables running through the walls of my house (and I assume most houses) are connected by a splitter. If your coax light is not coming on, this is most likely the reason.
There needs to be a direct cable line from the room you plug the first adapter into, to the next room where you wish to receive an internet connection. If your coax cables are wired through your house using coaxial splitters (you will see these where your fuse box is) you will have a very hard time getting this to work! Luckily my laptop set up in the basement is directly beside my fuse box. (Hence two stars instead of 1)
I had to unscrew each coaxial cable, from each splitter, one by one, and insert each into the adapter until the coax light came on. This meant that I found the coaxial cable connected to the room upstairs where the first adapter is plugged in. This would also work in reverse if your modem/router is next to your fuse box.
Besides the 4 hour head ache it is now working and my laptop is now operating at a download speed of 94 Mbps with Ethernet whereas before it was at 41 Mbps with wifi.
I’m very surprised nobody has mentioned this in the reviews yet. Make sure your cables are wired through your walls without splitters before you waste $250 dollars.
There are many factors that are involved in MoCa. The cable run, the type of cable, the connectors, number of connections, quality of the connections, etc. I have a condo (one floor), the building is two years old so I am assuming (with an understanding of what comes with that) that the co-ax is RG-6, and I only have one (1) pair running from the fibre router to one MoCa device through the cable to the second MoCa device.
These are the speeds and performance I witnessed. You you may have better, or you may have worse. It is physics but there are a lot of variables in making this truly a Gigabit connection.
The setup is straight forward, easy and the connection is reliable. While I am not getting the performance I want I would still recommend these devices if you are looking to expand your internal network in your home without running cables or being limited to WiFi.
