    Simple question - can't seem to find a straightforward answer.

    Can I deploy 3+ of the bonded MoCA adapters (Motorolas) and get the same "better" speed over a standard adapter?

    I just got my two MM1000s running and was impressed with the speed test results. I have some old Netgear MCA1001 v1 MoCA adapters, but they aren't going to be as fast. If I bought another MM1000, does it still benefit from the "bonded" aspect? Or should I just deploy the Netgears and save my money? Thanks for the help.

    MoCA is peer-to-peer, so any 2 nodes will attempt to communicate with each other at the highest MoCA spec supported by both nodes.

    So, an additional MM1000 should communicate with any other existing MM1000 at bonded MoCA 2.0 rates (assuming the coax plant allows), but will communicate with lesser MoCA nodes at the lesser node's MoCA spec.

    Thanks - one more MM1000 for the basement then, and I can use the lesser MoCA adapters in less used spots.

    Or setup two MoCA networks, to squeeze a bit more throughput out of your coax, as allowed by the MoCA 2.0 spec (pg. 6)
