Information

 
Question
How do I configure my SBG6782 for a MoCA connection?  
Answer

In addition to being a cable modem with a built-in router and wireless access point, the SBG6782 also includes a built-in MoCA adapter.   Just as devices can be added to the SBG6782 network by using a wireless connection or an Ethernet cable, devices can also be added to the network by using MoCA (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) technology.  With MoCA, devices can be connected to the SBG6782 by utilizing the coax cabling that's built into the home. 

For example, if a set-top box is located in the living room, and a Smart TV is in the bedroom that includes a coax connection, the Smart TV can take advantage of MoCA technology to be able to watch TV from the bedroom.  The Smart TV would connect through the Ethernet connection, which would allow multimedia content to stream from the set-top box to the Smart TV.  With this setup, cable television can be accessed from the living room TV and the Smart TV in the bedroom simultaneously.  Other devices (such as a computer or gaming console) can also be connected from the bedroom and have access to the Internet.

By default, MoCA is disabled in the SBG6782.  This document describes how to enable MoCA for the SBG6782.

NOTE 1: To find out if the set-top box supports this setup, please contact the manufacturer.

NOTE 2: The MoCA feature in the SBG6782 uses MoCA version 1.1, and only uses D-Band channels for a MoCA connection.

NOTE 3: This feature is not available for units that have been purchased or leased from Time Warner.
