I would like to use my home coax to get ethernet to the other end of my house. I'm doing that now with powerline bridges but the speed is not great. I might be able to get gigabit speed from moca 2.0 on the coax.
I have an Arris TG1682 modem/router. I enabled moca 2.0 in the router and verified that a Motorola mm1000 worked as expected on the near side of the house. The router saw its mac address and a connected laptop could access the internet. But when I tried it at the other end of the house, I got nothing. I asked Cox support why and they had no clue. I later discovered that our TV boxes will not connect to the Cox network if a Motorola adapter is on the coax. Again Cox support had no explanation.
My question: is Cox actively blocking this and not telling me, or is it something that can be fixed and gotten to work?
Thanks in advance.
