What Does a MoCA Adapter Do?

Wi-Fi is awesome until we experience things like dropped signals, slow speeds, or limited range. These issues tend to happen in homes with thick walls or other interferences. Fortunately, there’s a solution for improving your internet performance. The solution: MoCA adapters.

MoCA stands for Multimedia over Coax Alliance. In other words, MoCA uses the coaxial wiring that already exists in your home to create a highway for super-fast Internet connection. And, since the connection isn’t over your wireless network, it won’t be affected by interferences. MoCA gives you the stability of a wired connection with much less wires and cost involved. This way, you can roam wirelessly with a reliable connection.

 

How MoCA Adapters Work

A MoCA adapter gives you better Wi-Fi coverage and performance throughout your home. The adapter acts as a wired network solution that eliminates any dead spots or other network issues in your home.

All you have to do to setup a MoCA adapter is:

  1. Plug a MoCA device into a coax jack and connect it to your router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Connect another MoCA device to a different coax jack in your home.

That’s it. With this setup, you skip extra wires, holes in walls and interruptions to your Internet connection.

Beyond easy setup, a MoCA adapter like the Hitron HT-EM2 has many benefits:

Better home Wi-Fi

MoCA adapters increase your network speeds which increases its performance. This way, you can enjoy full-coverage Wi-Fi throughout your home without the risk of spotty connection.

Better streaming & gaming experiences

Since MoCA creates stable Internet connection, you don’t have to worry about your favorite shows or movies stuttering, freezing or cutting out. You also get pristine 4K and HD resolution right away without having to deal with standard resolution while your Internet speeds catch up.

The same goes for online gaming. With MoCA supporting your Wi-Fi, you don’t have to worry about latency or lag while online gaming.

Better video conferencing when working from home

Working from home can be a nightmare if your Wi-Fi isn’t reliable. MoCA technology makes your internet connection reliable. You don’t have to worry about glitchy or dropped video calls. MoCA makes the connection smooth and seamless, even if the whole household is using the internet at the same time.

Fast Wi-Fi speed up to 700 Mbps

MoCA adapters create a wired backbone for your wireless network. This can help get Internet speeds up to a potential 700 Mbps.

Easy setup

MoCA adapters are easy to set up and use. All you need is the adapter kit and an Ethernet cable. This is perfect for HDTV streaming and gaming with reduced lag.

Secure and reliable Wi-Fi connection

Using MoCA adapters to support your Wi-Fi network gives you a super-fast and reliable Internet connection every time you connect.
