    How to set up a coax (MoCA) network

    Our house has dual coax wires throughout the house and have TWC/Spectrum's TV/Internet/phone services over one of the coax wires coming into the house, which splits in to multiple rooms and one has an Arris tg1672 modem (which I don't think is MoCA compliant) connected. From the modem, we have phone and internet services connected. We have our own router (TP-LINK AC1750) connected to the modem (with an ethernet cable) for wifi. We are trying to create another wifi hotspot as well as enable high speed video download capability at the other end of the house (which is too far for any router and repeaters seem to significantly degrade the throughput). Since we have an unused coax network, could I simply connect an MoCA adaptor to the router (using an ethernet cable), then connect the Mo...see more »Our house has dual coax wires throughout the house and have TWC/Spectrum's TV/Internet/phone services over one of the coax wires coming into the house, which splits in to multiple rooms and one has an Arris tg1672 modem (which I don't think is MoCA compliant) connected.

Since we have an unused coax network, could I simply connect an MoCA adaptor to the router (using an ethernet cable), then connect the MoCA adaptor to a coax outlet/port of the unused network, then connect an Actiontec WCB3000N01 (which is a combined MoCA adaptor and and wifi extender) at the other end (to another coax outlet/port of the same unused network) to create a wifi hotspot as well as physical ethernet connections without worrying about noise/filtering/security? Any recommendations on a less expensive MoCA adaptor (Actiontec ECB2500C is $67 on Amazon)?
