Trying to replace G1100 router with MoCA 2.5 adapter and my own router
07-11-2021 08:06 AM
So I should have done more research on this before buying equipment, but I already bought a goCoax MoCA 2.5 adapter and a Tp-link AC1750 router.
My current setup looks like this:
ONT in the basement <---coax up the side of the house---> G1100 router in my bedroom
And I want it to look like this:
ONT in the basement <---coax up the side of the house---> goCoax adapter <---ethernet---> AC1750
I have really no experience with networking, but from what I read in other posts it seemed like this setup would work. The problem is that everything powers on and works in the new setup except for one very important part: the MoCA light on the adapter doesn't come on. I read that the ONT uses MoCA 1.1 WAN at a frequency of 1000MHz to send to the router. I'm able to get into the goCoax adapter's web configuration, and this is what it looks like:
I have no idea what most of these settings mean, even with the descriptions on the side there. LOF originally was set to 1150 and I changed to 1000 because I thought it might be the frequency. But could be completely unrelated, I have no idea!
1. Is what I'm trying to do even possible?, and
2. If so, what do I need to change in the MoCA adapter settings to allow the signal to come through?
