Get use MoCA for second router...
Hi - this is my first time posting here, and beware, i probably have no idea what i am talking about... I tried searching for this topic, but didn't have any luck...
I have some TiVo receivers at my home with service through RCN. My internet router is in the kitchen on the middle of the first floor. I know this is not the ideal area for a wifi router, but that isn't my problem.
One tv (with a TiVo Premier) is on far end of the 2nd floor. This receiver has a Actiontec MoCA adapter to get the internet signal it needs. However, my regular Wifi signal is very weak in that part of the home.
Now to my question:
Is it possible to harness the internet signal through the coax cable to connect a second wifi router in that tv room on the 2nd floor? What I wonder specifically, is if i can connect the ethernet cable from the MoCA adapter to a router, and then a cable from the router to the reciever (so that connection is complete). Then i'll also have wifi in that part of the house.
I haven't been able to get an answer from RCN or TiVo regarding this.
Sorry for the long-winded post.. Hope my questions is clear.
