Re: No Program Name with second MoCa bridge

Computers:
second floor IP address: 192.168.1.2
first floor ip address: 192.168.1.9

yes it does say broadband connected.

here's the coax connection stats:




I have not assigned any static IP addresses.
The coax cables are all thick and stiff, installed by the verizon tech.

The splitters were installed by the verizon tech, except for the one on the first floor that came with the MoCa bridge.

Coax connection stats are good, there's nothing wrong with coax. Asterisk next to Device3 indicates it's the MoCA controller.

Verify at each STB (oops, the one downstairs has no TV hooked up to it) the STB IP. If the STB reports a 169.254.x.x address, then it has lost the router-provided one.

The power down and power up sequence I indicated will fix the problem.

hmm. the upstairs STB reports a 192.168.1.100 address, same as the one listed in the router for that STB.

Do Widgets and VOD work on the upstairs STB?

no they do not.

so i unplugged the splitter downstairs, disconnecting the unused STB and connecting the moca bridge directly to the coax coming off the ONT's splitter, rebooted the STB upstairs, and I got good channel guides. I'm guessing my signal is being split too many times. Is there a way to boost the signal another way, or re-wire my setup?

There is no real way I will be able to run cat5 from the router upstairs to my computer downstairs, due to how the house is laid out.

Silly question, but since you didn't say you tried it, I figured I'd ask.....did you try to just reboot the stb upstairs before changing any wiring? Sometimes, as odd as it seems, that's all that's needed. Especially if it was working, and then you change some of the wiring (like, say, adding a MoCA bridge).

Where did you get the ECB and what kind of splitter did it come with?
