Advertisements For Christmas I was given four Motorola MOCA 2.0 adapters and 4 Google WiFi points. I'm a bit confused as to how to position the one MOCA adapter that interfaces with the cable modem and one of the Google WiFi points. My previous setup consisted of Tivo Roamio, a TP-Link wireless router, and 3 Actiontec 1.1 MOCA adapters. The Tivo Roamio acted as the bridge. The cable coming out of the wall was split, one coax going to the Roamio and one coax gong to the cable modem. The cable modem then had an ethernet cable going to my TP-Link wireless router. Other rooms in my house then had coax going to a Actiontec MOCA adapter and an ethernet cable going to a switch (which then gave network access to an array of devices in those rooms). Upon receiving the Motorola MOCA adapters and the Google WiFi points, I set off on upgrading my network to MOCA 2.0. My first attempt was to take one of the coax cables from the splitter and go to the MOCA adapter. Then coax from the adapter to the cable modem. The other coax went to the Roamio (no change there). An ethernet cable then ran from the modem to the Google WiFi point. The other rooms had coax going to MOCA adapters then to Google WiFi points. The Roamio was changed to be a MOCA client as opposed to a MOCA bridge. Everything worked! Roamio had internet access using MOCA, all Google WiFi points were connected via wired instead of wirelessly, and three TiVo minis So why the thread? Well starting the day after the switch over, the cable modem started losing signal. Instead of having up and down links connected and blue, it would have down connected (but green) and then constantly flash the up link. Oddly enough as soon as I pulled the plug and made the modem go through a hard boot, it would immediately connect again (up and down links blue). Since the only thing I changed with regards to the cable modem was that I inserted a MOCA adpater in between it and the splitter, I decided to take a coax from the splitter and go to the MOCA adapter and then to the Roamio. The other coax from the splitter then went straight to the modem (just like my TP-Link wireless router setup). As soon as I did this, my Roamio could not get an IP no matter what I did. And obviously my Tivo Minis were useless. The Google WiFi points were able to connect so not sure why the Roamio, when getting its coax from the MOCA adapter, was having an issue. It could be that it's purely coincidental that I experienced these outages on the first two days after I made the switch to MOCA 2.0/Google WiFi (and thus inserted a MOCA adapter in between the splitter and cable modem) but man that's a crazy coincidence. Once I gave up on getting the Roamio to get an IP if the MOCA adapter was between the splitter and Roamio and went back to having the MOCA adapter between the splitter and cable modem, I got everything to talk again and I haven't had another outage (it's been 1/2 day). I"m just wondering if someone could explain why the MOCA adapter can't be between the splitter and Roamio and/or why the MOCA adapter has to be between the splitter and modem.
