Hands On the Netgear MoCA Networking Kit


When I first saw report of a home networking kit that utilized coaxial cable it made such perfect sense. Along the same lines as powerline networking, these MoCA kits leverage the existing coaxial cables already run to most rooms in a house to connect ethernet-based devices. Really convenient if for some reason wireless isn’t as fast or reliable as necessary. Looks like the unit from Netgear is pretty reliable and FAST according to Tom, great news!


Zatz Not Funny

I ran a few speed tests on my setup and averaged 68 Mbps for a single connection. In order to stream HD video you are going to want to have somewhere between 20 Mbps – 35 Mbps of steady bandwidth and Netgear’s MoCA solution fits the bill.
