    Comcast Business just updated our gateway to a Cisco Business Wireless Gateway. Its a model DPC3939B. It includes the cable modem, gigabit router, wireless access point (actual dual, one public, one private) and MOCA gateway.

    I do not subscribe to Comcast television services. We use a large outdoor OTA antenna.

    Currently I have a moca adapter connecting the household coax network to the ethernet switch. 2 tivos and a mini are on the the moca network. It works fine.

    I would like to remove the moca adapter and use the moca built in to the new gateway. But connecting it with a splitter as shown in the Cisco manual will result in both the antenna and the Comcast systems connected to each other. I think this is a big problem.

    How do I get the moca on to my coax network with OTA antenna still connected. Is there some sort of filter I need to place between them or should I keep them separate and just continue using the separate adapter?

    Have no idea if that would work.

    My wiring is pretty simple. Comcast and Roof Antenna both enter the equipment closet on separate feeds. The OTA antenna goes to a distribution block and from there to all the tivo's around the house. The moca adapter also connects to the distribution block on one of the output legs. The Comcast incoming line connects directly to the single coax port on the gateway.

    I suppose I could just quit talking about it and hook it together adding a splitter in front of the gateway and the second leg to my distribution block, disconnect the moca adapter and see if things work. Was just looking to see if there was a 'right' way to do this.
