What you should know before switching to Mediacom

The MoCA adapter won’t break your internet connection, but you’ll be missing some channels.

I recently switched from DirecTV to Mediacom, who installed an Actiontec ECB2500C MoCA Network Adapter as part of a triple play deal. A couple details about this:

  • Yes, the adapter must be installed between your modem and your coax wall outlet despite the TV/STB Out label on the coax output port. That port actually connects to your modem.

    Yeah, don't mind that TV/STB Out label. It's incorrect.
    Yeah, don’t mind that TV/STB Out label. It’s incorrect.
  • Like me, you’re probably worried that placing any device between your router and wall outlet might impact your internet connection. Fortunately, there’s nothing to worry about. Speed and remote access still work just fine.

Also, Mediacom’s missing a few (sports) channels found on other providers:

  • MLB Network
  • Pac-12 Network
  • NHL Network
  • NBA Network

If you decide to switch anyway, be sure to contact them and request the above.
