I have a gateway router that is connected from the ont via Ethernet.  I’d like to get an extender for our fourth floor.  The house is wired for coaxial, but note Ethernet (other than the connection between the ont and the router.

 

if I get an extender and connect it Via splitting the coaxial, will it work?   Or does it need an Ethernet connection from the router?

It will work on coax even if your router is connected via ethernet WAN but there also needs to be coax connected to your router going back to the main splitter. The coax going to the 4th also has to be tied into that same splitter to create the MoCA link.

Thanks!    The coaxial also goes into the router, along with two tv boxes.   I’ll route the 4Th split of the coaxial to the to the extender.   Thanks!

No problem. I’m not sure what your internet speed is but the extender connected to coax is limited up to speeds of 400 mbps.
