I would like to setup a moca network because I have existing coax wiring in the home that isn't being used. However, my modem does not have a coax connector (I have fiber) and neither does my router. Can I just connect the moca adapter using the Ethernet ports as follows?

Modem-->Moca adapter (via Ethernet)-->Coax cable through home-->moca adapter-->device(via Ethernet)

Have you made any progress on your installation? I'm currently researching the ethernet over coax.

There is something called a DECA adapter. They are MUCH cheaper than MoCA. I'm trying to do some research and found one other thread so far that mentions them.

I believe they can do 100 Mbps speed which is probably faster than your internet connection. I'm still researching that as well. At this point, I know enough to be dangerous.

To me, $25 is cheap enough to give them a shot. And the page says "free returns".

These are USB powered. You can also buy them with power supplies. I have NOT used either. I'm still researching.

If you want more on MoCA, the Actiontec website has a lot. https://www.actiontec.com/moca/

There are a couple of other posts about MoCA. I'm looking for any on DECA. There is a Titan bill001g that seems to have some expertise in this area.
