Awesome, I may be sending you some other picture photos of possible hook-ups as well.
Remember the weakness of wireless on just one DVR. If you are using wireless to connect the MoCA net to the house network and there are DVRs there too, ouch.
Yes any any other non MoCA receivers will swallow up the bandwidth, "but" if all the receivers are on the MoCA net, the wireless should be doing "only" the internet [or PC] needs.
Kinda the way I looked at it too. VOD is honestly not used here all that much, and then only one unit at a time...same for TVapps.
MRV is the kingpin of use potential here.
After how many posts/replies before "you got it"? :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
Right after the first one where you explained it in English. :lol:
I don't know the answer to that yet .. Perhaps a (pre-configured) wireless bridge will work .. :shrug:
Sorry, it took so long to find my crayons for you. :lol:
No problem .. I'm only a day late and a dollar short
Now that could lead to an interesting situation...
What if you used a non-configured wireless bridge to connect 3 receivers. Would the MoCA net be transparent enough that all 3 receivers would try to configure the wireless bridge?? :lol:
(My guess is no, but I might give it a try just to see.)
[with zero experience with wireless networks] Wouldn't one receiver work to configure the bridge and the other [two] simply "piggyback" off this?
Despite being pretty software and network savvy...the only thing I've known to date about MoCa is that it's a kind of chocolate flavoring....
Ideally yes. but if they all detect the wireless as unconfigured, would they all try to?
Once the bridge is configured, all would piggyback thru the bridge.
Likely not...typically, the wireless (game adapters or other) need to be configured first at the server, and then "plugged in" at the actual location with that configuration already done.
In my case, all 3 Buffalo units have static IPs. I also need to have them listed by their MAC addreses for the "network filter" settings on the router - then everything works perfectly.
Maybe the work around is to boot one and configure the bridge, then boot the others?
"but" isn't there an adapter [N something] that the DVR configures through the network setup menu?
It's pretty much plug and play here - once the remote devices are configured using their software...at the DVR...each DVR's own static IP network address, as well as the DNS IP for the DSL modem as the pass through point in the network setup menu.
On the wireless router side...only need to set up the mac address network filtering using each DVR mac address, and the port forwarding settings, and that's it.
