CGM4141 and MoCA
Background: I live in a 2 story house. The Technicolor CGM4141 is connected downstairs. My gaming systems are upstairs and laptops are upstairs. The WiFi connection has been problematic when trying to game or stream from upstairs so I did some research and determined that utilizing a MoCA setup would be the best thing to do (wasn't going to run ethernet wire all over the house or through walls).
I purchased 2 GoCoax 2.5 MoCA adapters and I thought it would be as simple as connecting it on both ends and voila. Well I ran into some issues yesterday trying to set everything up. This is the set up that I'm using.
Downstairs - I have coax cable from outside connected to the MoCA coax on the adapter which is then connected via ethernet to the Eth2 port on the router/modem
Upstairs - I have the other MoCA adapter connected to a coax cable and then connected via ethernet to my PC.
On both adapters, the power and LAN leds are on but nothing from the MoCA led.
Once that didn't work, I connected both MoCA adapters to each other via coax and the MoCA leds did turn on. After doing some research on the CGM4141, I found out that it is capable of MoCA. I logged into the router and enabled MoCA and now I've gotten it to a point where the MoCA light about the coax port on the CGM4141 is a blinking white light (which means it's seeking a MoCA connection). Once I saw this, I thought that my configuration upstairs would work but I still had no luck.
Anyone on here able to provide some insight in what's going wrong or point me in the right direction?
