Should I Enable MoCA on My Router?

Learn > WiFi > Should I Enable MoCA on My Router?
You have dealt with slow Wi-Fi speeds and poor connection at some point in your life. It seems like every time it happens it’s more frustrating than the last time. Often, the reason for your poor Wi-Fi experience comes from your router. Whether that’s because your router is outdated, needs a reboot or is obstructed by some interference. Fortunately, there are routers that have technology built-in that can combat these challenges.

If you have a router that has built-in MoCA, you can utilize it to make your Wi-Fi better. MoCA stands for Multimedia over Coaxial Alliance or is sometimes called Ethernet over Coax. It is a technology that is designed to support and boost your Wi-Fi, especially in areas of your home that suffer to get a good Wi-Fi signal. It gives you the same solid Internet connection you would get with a wired setup without the headache of drilling holes or running wires.

MoCA technology capabilities can be found in the form of routers, adapters and extenders. If you don’t have MoCA on your router already built in, you will need to pair MoCA network adapters on your network. If you have a MoCA-enabled router, you can pair one MoCA adapter with your router. A MoCA adapter like the Hitron MoCA 2.0 works great.

If you are trying to decide whether or not you should enable MoCA on your router, or trying to better understand what that means, consider the following:


Why You Should Use MoCA on Your Router

You don’t have to use MoCA on your router. However, if you already have it built in, then you are hallway there. There are many reasons why you should enable MoCA on your router:


MoCA makes your Internet connection reliable every time.


MoCA creates a super-fast Internet connection every time you connect.


Video streaming is better because MoCA makes your Internet faster.


Online gaming is better because MoCA reduces latency and lag.


MoCA is easy to set up.


MoCA is secure.

MoCA boosts the Wi-Fi that exists in your home so that everything is better: speed, connection, experience.


How to Enable & Set Up MoCA

With a router that has MoCA technology, set up is easy. All you have to do is connect your one MoCA adapter to a coax jack and to your device via Ethernet cable. Then, make sure it pairs with your MoCA-enabled router.

Since your router has the MoCA technology built-in, your router replaces the need for a second MoCA adapter in the connection.

Once the adapter is connected and your router is paired, you are set up.

If you are unsatisfied with your Wi-Fi home network performance, you should enable MoCA on your router. It’s a worry-free solution: No additional wires, no expensive installation or setup, always reliable. MoCA lowers latency (no lag) and improves connection speed. And since you are reading this because you already have a MoCA router, you save cost in the end. If you are unsure, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
