Re: TIVO Whole Home - MOCA Question

said by hydrox:

RCN will give you one Actiontec MOCA "free" when you get the bundle.

Really? I never got one lol. The MOCA was built in to the Q and preview. I do have an ethernet cord in my Q though. But my preview doesn't have any dongle.

Since the Q has the built in MOCA adapter and the Preview is connected to the coax, no external Actiontec is required at all.

I did find that RCN will provide one Actiontec MOCA adapter at no cost somewhere in RCN's fine print. I then thought I could use the "no charge" Actiontec device to enable "non-coax" ethernet access into my other room and not rely on wi-fi for my other devices that don't have a coax connection. I think I had to specifically ask for the free unit when ordering the bundle, and had to direct the RCN Tech how to wire it for my purposes since he knew it was not required for my setup. Oh, did I also say I love RCN.
