    Can I unplug the ethernet going onto my SWM and still have on-demand on my HR44, C61, and HR21. I see from a system test that I already have the HR44 Genie on wireless.. the Server Info already reads Wireless-Connected, Ethernet- Deactivated (Wireless Configured), Moca Network=Coax Connected.

    I assume wthe Moca Netwrk will distribute wifi as needed. My wifi runs about 100 mps, btw.

    Your Ethernet should be going into your HR44 or HR21, not the SWM. That having been said, yes you can remove it and connect your Genie to the Internet via Wifi (which it appears that it already is). Unless you have a good reason for doing so, I'd stick with Ethernet (and turn Wifi off) since wired is always more reliable than Wifi.

    As you noted, the distribution within the system is already occurring via the coax network.
