Moved into a place where the builder did not add connectors to the coax runs in the utility box. Before I added an RG6 connector to each cable trying to find the one I needed that runs to my office, I figured I would just plug the copper coax cable straight into the originating goCoax MoCA device, without a connector, just to locate the proper wire I needed. This is what the wire looked like.
I find the right cable, the MoCA lights turn on, everything is working as expected, and I am getting fantastic speeds.
Now, just to add the RG6 compression connector to firm-up the connection between the cable and the MoCA device. I add a compression connector to the cable, screw the connector on to the MoCA device, and now I have no MoCA light and no connectivity. Weird. So I cut the compression connector off, strip the cable again, and just to be sure, I plug the copper coax cable straight into the MoCA device again -- back to fantastic operation. I install another RG6 compression connector, and again I lose connectivity.
I'm using the below RG6 compression connectors.
I'm guessing I may be creating some sort of interference/short with the these RG6 connectors because I'm not installing the connectors correctly or because the compression connectors are perhaps not fit for purpose.
Any thoughts? Any guide to how I should be installing the connectors? Any thoughts as to better quality connectors?
