I can try that but I didn't change anything before they just started working after 9 months of not working. Also, my cable modem is on a separate coax cable circuit from the TV coaxial cable. The coax from the cable provider splits at a junction box outside my house, the cable for the internet is a single cable run from the junction box to the modem. The cable for the TV runs from the junction box to a splitter/amplifier in my house and then branches out to all the rooms.Then there is likely overlap on the MOCA bands. You can try shifting the GoCOAX modems to the higher bands. i think there is is discussion about that in this thread earlier.
Hello John,I can try that but I didn't change anything before they just started working after 9 months of not working. Also, my cable modem is on a separate coax cable circuit from the TV coaxial cable. The coax from the cable provider splits at a junction box outside my house, the cable for the internet is a single cable run from the junction box to the modem. The cable for the TV runs from the junction box to a splitter/amplifier in my house and then branches out to all the rooms.
The dark green means that device is a MoCA2.0 device.Seems like 1 and 3 are the Gocoax and 0 and 2 are the Actiontec ECB6200?
Does the order really mean anything? If I do iperf3 -p 10 from my office to the server room (where both gocoax are) and i'm getting consistent ~940mb/sec, so it seems like performance is good.

Yes, from the rate page. We think the issue should be related to signal level.Hi!
I am reaching out to this forum and topic as it seems like both the @gocoax and fellow users/experts is around.
I have a rather big house with 10+ coax outlets, and have 5 GoCoax MoCA adapters that I have tried to get working for some time. However, I have run into issues. To spare you from my hours of troubleshooting, I have narrowed my problem into a simplified case;
I have three points, A, B and C.
A is my office in the ground floor, where my router is, fiber, CATV++ comes in to the house.
B is my living room, ground floor
C is my attic room, first floor.
The most simple schematic I can configure here is:
GoCoax MoCA adapter A -> GoCoaX official splitter (all frequencies) -> wall/cable -> GoCoax MoCA adapter B -> wall/cable -> GoCoax MoCA adapter C.
I am able to get MoCA working from A to B, and from B to C, however, A to C does not work. When A to B are connected and working flawlessly, and I plug in point C, after a while the network shifts from B to C, and since A has the internet/DHCP service, I basically end up with a faulty net everywhere. Likewise, I have tested that B to C are working on its own, with peer-to-peer pinging.
I have tried so much, thinking that perhaps the CATV signal was causing issues, and have used different splitters, filters at all possible places ++
Now, in practice, our house consist of 10+ CATV outlets, where at least two outlets are between A and B, and B and C, and there are also outlets after C in the cable layup (which also do not work from A).
I was thinking that perhaps my problem was signal strength? I have just moved in to this house, so I do not know exactly how the cables are drawn and how much/which cable we are talking about, however the previous owners had to install an amplifier for the CATV signal at point A in order to get a proper signal at point C and onwards. I have confirmed this myself (but we do not use CATV as our TV since we get all we need from internet streams). Since the lower frequencies need to be amped up, would the same be true for the MoCA frequences (I have read that they might not)?
Attached are the signal strengths for B to A (2700 kbps) and B to C (1700kbps) from the adapter in point B, when connected respectivly (when A to B is working, C is not connected, and when B to C is working, A is not connected).
Any help would be greatly appreciated, guys! Let me know if I can provide additional information. Thanks in advance
ISSUE SOLVED! Summary below.I have a question about my first Moca network. Two goCoax boxes have been working for two days at full network speeds without fail, but also without the use of our cable box and a POE filter. Allow me to explain.
See the wiring diagram (Revised MOCA Schematic). These are the only cables implemented in the house. The outside line enters to the basement, then originally to the POE filter (by PPC/Beldon), then to Splitter 1 (a 3 way BAMF Bi-directional MoCA 5-2300MHz). The unused node is terminated with a 75 ohm cap.
The upper left on the diagram features one goCoax box and an access unit. The wire run is not physically accessible. The run to the master unit is to the right. It needs ideally be split to feed a cable modem and an XFinity box. The cable modem goes to the router, which feeds Ethernet feeds throughout the house and to the nearby GoCoax device.
At first, this segment was hooked up as detailed (First Method Master.JPG). The two devices connected only after being left overnight and performance was awful.
Only by removing the POE and the second splitter (a 2 way, also a BAMF) and reverting to the layout in the main diagram did the devices reliably talk. Enclosed are attachments of the device and link characteristics. Removing the POE sounds counterintuitive.
I put both the second splitter and the POE in and had everything connected, until one of the goCoax devices was rebooted. Then no sync occured.
Can you help me to connect the second splitter and the cable box? Please also advise about the POE.
Been down this road and I found the same thing; a manual reset could keep the net up, albeit temporarily. There may still be two issues. First, a power blip may kill the desired MoCa connection (we have plenty of them here). You would need a UPS on every MoCa box. Secondly, the cable boxes may be reset nightly by the headend, so you'd wake up in the morning with a different network setup.I figured out what my issue was. It turns out that my cables boxes were interfering with the adapters from syncing up. However, it wasn't all the cable boxes, just the ones connected to MoCA adapters. If I unplugged them, the adapters would sync up in about 30 - 45 seconds. Afterwards I could plug the cable boxes back in and they worked fine.
Also, how does this connection look? I have no idea how to read these numbers.
