Correct, with the stipulation that you also enable MoCA privacy -- and, based on the images you provided, avoid use of channel 15, as that's the channel in use by the foreign MoCA network. In fact, you'll likely want to avoid channel 17, as well, to keep a buffer between your network and the one on channel 15.If I read your post correctly, you think I might force the mini to connect to my MoCA by designating a specific channel on both the Roamio and the mini.
edit: Oh, also, here's some add'l info re: the available MoCA channels, from a previous posting:
Yes, you'll find it through the "Change network settings" option:
> Change network settings
> Connect using MoCA
> Change MoCA Settings
Note that you'll have the option to choose an odd-numbered MoCA channel from 15-29, with these somewhat arbitrary channel numbers being associated with the defined MoCA 1.1 50 MHz-wide channel center frequencies, as previously reported by GoHokies!, here. Filling-in the assumed values, we get...
15: 1150 MHz
17: 1200 MHz
19: 1250 MHz
21: 1300 MHz
23: 1350 MHz
25: 1400 MHz
27: 1450 Mhz
29: 1500 MHz
It's not so much a case of "otherwise" as "until." You'll still want/need to:Otherwise the only way to solve the problem is to install a POE filter at the incoming location and possibly a MoCA compliant spliter.
- ensure the coax lines to your rooms are isolated from the rest of the building;
- do the above using a MoCA-compatible splitter;
- and get a PoE MoCA filter in place on the input to this splitter.
Thanks for the feedback. (That issue was resolved -- my fears allayed -- when we figured out that mdavej was thinking of a different gateway model.)I have looked at the Arris closely and I do not see anything that suggests it can create it's own MoCA network.
