recently I've been experiencing link drops on the MoCA link between a pair of WF-803M units. They have been installed for about a year and are the only devices on the 'network'. Basically each one is directly connected to a coax point which feeds back to the attic, where there is a splitter joining them,
I've tried resetting them back to factory defaults and also tried upgrading from 188.8.131.52 to the 184.108.40.206 firmware.
I've tried to capture the status of the devices when the link drops and
My MoCA Version:2.5
Network MoCA Version:2.5
Number of Channels:5
Tx Good: 0
Tx Bad: 0
Tx Dropped: 0
Rx Good: 0
Rx Bad: 0
Rx Dropped: 0
When operating normally the Secondary channel is 1300
From/To 0 1
0 676 3456
1 3427 677
From/To 0 1
0 691 3531
1 3454 677
It is a bit tricky to capture both ends details as i loose connectivity to the far end. Is there any thing I could do to try debug this?
yes, that is something I considered ,so have been sourcing a coax coupler as I don't have a route to add a new cable, but a simple "join" is about as simple as I can make things as part of the testing.
I'll report back once I have been able to investigate.
Sorry, this device doesn't support monitoring protocol.
Anohter thing you can try is, connect the two MoCA adapters directly with a short coaxial cable. Check the link stability. If there is something wrong, Please send the faulty device to us.
If the two MoCA adapters can works well. Maybe we need to check the splitter and coaxial cable.
no, the only things besides the 2 bridge units are passive, cables, sockets, splitter, filter, termination resistors on spare splitter outputs etc.
I guess my next test would be to measure the continuity on the cabling and resistance, unfortunately I don't have any proper impedance measuring equipment nor anything to check frequency responses.
Do the units support any monitoring protocols like SNMP or is there a way to get something automatic out of the telnet interface? something to record signal levels etc.
The MoCA link rate is good.
Do you have any other devices runing over the coaxial network?
For example, DOCSIS modem or other devices.
