I bought it for about $2 more last month. I bought it for the co-ax to Ethernet functionality and not the wireless function. I am using it to take my game systems in the playroom off of the wireless network. It was plug and play, though I never figured out how to clone my wireless settings on the main router. I'm thinking of using its wireless signal for guests.

I should mention that I have FiOS and an actontec router.

If you don't need the wireless functions and are just interested in this for the ability to run Ethernet over old coaxial cable in your house, you can get a pair of DECA adapters and do this for under $15 shipped (for the pair). These were made for use with DirecTV systems but you don't need DirecTV at all. Just plug them into each end of a coax cable, plug the Ethernet from one into your router and the Ethernet from the other into your device (or an old wireless router if you want to create another Wi-Fi access point).

Take note of the reviews; this is a (surplus or something) Time Warner Cable unit. It WILL work with other providers—mine works with Frontier FIOS—but it is locked to TWC firmware, and, as many reviewers will lament, the latest TWC firmware hides the ability to turn off wireless radios on this thing. You can still find the option by digging around the HTML of the thing's setup page but it's far from convenient and not even feasible for someone who doesn't know HTML. Also, this TWC unit does not allow spaces in SSID names. Other than that, a steal. And you may luck out with an older firmware device that allows free turning on and off of wireless. But don't count on it.

Correct me if I'm wrong but deca is technically slower than mocha

Also review state that the latest firmware if you upgrade, will not let you turn off Wi-Fi

FYI, DECA runs on the same frequency as cable TV, so you can't use these on the same coax as cable TV.

I'm using one of these to extend my wifi in my house. Mines plugged into a coax, and works like a champ. I have Verizon Fios.

Mine works with FiOS without any issues. I was also worried about getting a twc branded one, but mine worked perfectly and I CAN turn off wireless. It's going back tho, the throughput is not so hot and the wireless is much slower than my FiOS router or my nighthawk. I'm going to but the bullet, buy a spool of cat 5e and start running cable, I deserve full speed...😀

can you share what speed are you getting over this co-ax to Ethernet, i have fios gigabit and i am wondering what this unit max out would be. i know there is another version with bonded channels that theoretical speed provides gigabit. but i am curious what this one max is in the real world?

what was the throughput you got with this unit, i got the same setup as you with nighthawk r8000 connected to the Fios Quantum modem and using a r7000 to bridge fios gigabit connection to my basement, i get on the wireless bridge over 5GHZ dual channel 415.15Mbps down and 671Mbps up. i am looking to reach better speed if there is another way other than running CAT between the floors.

Thanks

I haven't tested it to know. However, I will plug in a notebook and see tonight when I get home.
