Re: MOCA connection Problem What am I missing?
Both the 400' run and the 800' run are home runs that both end in the cellar approx 20 ' from the new verizon MI424WR-GEN3I and ont. Both are working fine right now the 400' run with two ECB2200 and the 800' run with an ECB2200 in the cellar and the older MI424WR in the out building to give us wireless there. Then they are hooked temporarily with cat5 to the switch which is connected to the new verizon MI424WR-GEN3I.
I can not connect the two runs in the cellar with a splitter to one ECB2200 when I do the cellar unit only will see one of the runs when I power it up sometimes the 400' run and sometimes the 800' run.
I have not been able to get either run to work to the new Verizon MI424WR-GEN3I(that has attached 3 STBs working fine) is there something I have to change in the MI424WR-GEN3I so it will see at least one of the runs(preferablly Both)? Is my problem because of the total length? I was told by a verizon tech that moca was good for in excess of 2000' where ethernet was around 300'.
The 800' run is an add on after the lightning problem as we had the extra cable in the ground and the 400' run worked so well with moca. The 800' run replaced a slow and then dead from lightning wireless link to a metal skinned building.
Both runs are used for moca only and are direct burial cable in tubes. Do I need to boost the signal in these lines? How?
Questions: The outbuildings are home runs to the cellar. How about the STBs? What is the splitter setup?
Also, each tap on the splitter has a rating. It might be 3.5dB or it might be 7.5dB or something else.
Did the tech perform tests on signal strength with his Sunrise meter? It's possible a splitter was zapped. Were they replaced?
