Question
How do I install my SBM1000 MoCA adapters with a cable modem?
Answer

The SBM1000 MoCA adapter kit consists of a SBM1100 adapter with one Ethernet port, and a SBM1400 adapter with 4 Ethernet ports.  The SBM1000 MoCA adapters can be integrated with a home network that connects to cable Internet service.  The MoCA adapters are compatible for use with a cable modem or a cable gateway (modem with built-in router).  This document describes how to install the SBM1100 MoCA adapters with a cable modem.

 Requirements

  • Cable Internet service
  • Cable modem
  • Multiple coaxial cable ports in home 


Connecting to Cable Modem

  1. Locate the coaxial cable connected from the cable wall outlet to the modem.
  2. If the coaxial cable is not connected to an RF splitter:
    a.   Disconnect it from the modem.
    b.   Connect the cable to the IN connector of the RF splitter (included with the SBM1000).
  3. Connect the MoCA filter (included) to the Coaxial port on the modem and to one of the coaxial cables (included).
  4. Connect the other end of the coaxial cable to one of the OUT coaxial ports of the RF splitter.
  5. Connect a second coaxial cable (included) to the other OUT coaxial port of the RF splitter and the Coax In port of the SBM1100 MoCA adapter.
  6. Connect an Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port of the SBM1100 to a LAN Ethernet port on the router.
    Connect the power adapter to the Power port of the SBM1100 and then to the electrical wall outlet.
  7. Check the Ethernet port LEDs on the modem for proper connectivity with the SBM1100.

  14. Verify that the Power, Coax, Speed, and Ethernet front panel LEDs on the SBM1100 and SBM1400 are lit SOLID. The Coax and Ethernet LEDs will flash when data activity is detected on the MoCA network.

    NOTE: Allow up to 10 minutes for a full network connection.
     
  15. Power up the SmartTV, set-top box, laptop, and any other connected devices.  The SmartTV and other Ethernet-enabled devices can now be configured for Internet access through their related user interfaces.
