I'm getting 3 pack of the TP-Link Deco AXE5300 Wi-Fi 6E Tri-Band.  I have Coax throughout the house already.  I will remove my cable company's existing router.   Can I plug 2 to 3 of them via coax?  if so, what state do I need to put the devices in?   Thank you!

  @tagcabo,

Unfortunately, the Deco System, and most mesh systems for that matter, require an Ethernet Connection to hardwire your nodes. Since you already have coax running throughout the house, you could look into either using Coax to Ethernet Adapters to bridge the connection or could look into other methods of receiving hardwired connections through your house such as Powerline, or new Ethernet Cabling

  @tagcabo You will need a pair of moca connectors.   I have one deco xe5300 hooked up this way the other deco uses the 6g backhaul.

  @nightshade68,

Thanks for chiming in, Its nice to hear that Moca connections work well with our Deco Systems. How difficult is it to configure the moca adapters? Is there any change in the stability or latency of the network when using this setup?

 

I have thought about using these in my home, but was always skeptical.

If I remember correctly it was just plug and play. No noticeable lag and they can keep up with my 500/100 meg connection. Longest run is to an old 2008 vista box converted to a linux box. It starts at around 500 but ends up in the 400 on speed test. Not sure if its moca or the fact the computer is actually 2008 model year. I have FTTH so once the fiber optic cable enters my house hits an ONT then runs Ethernet line directly to my DECO. Since the coax lines are unused I didn't have to deal with any moca filters. I think you need them if coax is still being shared with cable tv and/or cable modem. Did find a 2 way line splitter in attic that I was able to remove incoming cable tv line and replace it with an TV antenna in attic so I can get OTA signal to my tvs.
