Actiontec WCB6200Q02 reviews

WCB6200Q02 802.11ac Wireless Network Extender with Gigabit Ethernet & Bonded MoCA is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Configuration is key Typical reason to buy this is so you can have another AP in your home network, but don't have ethernet to the second location, but do have coaxial cable at your router, at the second location. The beauty of this equipment from Actiontec (using MOCA 2.0) provides a way to connect a second AP without sacrificing wifi bandwidth. My network topology consists of comcast cable connection, Bonded MoCA 2.0 Network Adapter, a Motorola Surfboard extreme cable modem, ASUS RT-AC66U and the WCB6200Q02 802.11ac Wireless Network Extender with Gigabit Ethernet. The ASUS router, and cable modem are located in my office, which is at top level remote corner of my 3 story hillside home. Coverage was not good throughout the home. I added the Actiontec MOCA 2.0 equipment to improve wifi coverage, and give my TIVO Roamio OTA Ethernet, as it wont do certain things over wifi. The extender is placed in the TV room below the office, in a slightly more central location. Initial setup, I was unimpressed with throughput test results. I went through the configuration to troubleshoot the problem, and am now happy with throughput. Im going to give a small lesson in 802.11 frequencies, as this is very important to understand when you are setting up multiple access points in your home (or business). In the U.S. 2.4 Ghz has 11 channels, each are 22Mhz wide. Any channels numbers that are at least 5 apart wont overlap. Maximizing the number of channels in the band is prudent. This leaves us with using channels 1,6, and 11. Channel 1 is centered at 2412Mhz (2401-2423) Channel 6 is centered at 2437Mhz (2426-2448) Channel 11 is centered at 2462Mhz (2451-2473) Both my router and extender have an option to increase bandwidth by bonding channels. A wonderful thing for 5Ghz, but not so in 2.4Ghz as there just isnt enough spectrum when you have multiple APs. Maybe an asymmetric use of 1 and 6,11 bonded might theoretically be okay. However, I found less throughput when I configured the router with channel 1 20Mhz and Extender with channel 11 and 40Mhz. BTW, initially both router and extender were configured for auto channel selection and both choose channel 6, and 40Mhz channel width. You will see why this is a problem shortly. Another problem with 2.4Ghz is that Microwave ovens operate at that frequency, so they can cause significant interference. Problem with 5Ghz, is it doesnt travel as far or penetrate walls and floors as well. Beam forming technology seems to have significantly improved this weakness, and I am happy with both ASUS and now Actiontec. 5Ghz band has much more spectrum available to it, and has 24 non-overlapping channels in the U.S. However all the consumer equipment Ive seen only offer 8 or 9 of these 5Ghz channels. This might be because of the complexity in complying with 802.11h, and explaining to customers why the AP is forced to switch channels or reduce transmit power. So we are offered channels 36, 40, 44, 48, 149,153,157,160. My ASUS router offers channel 165, but that is not in the 802.11a specification. With 802.11ac, it is mandatory that stations support 80Mhz bonding. If you have only 2 access points, then by all means put one AP in channel 36 and the other AP in channel 149 and select 80Mhz width for each. In conclusion, the solution seems to be working well with proper wifi configuration on both the router and extender. 2.4Ghz Router and extender should use channels 1,6 or 11, but neither should be the same channel. Be sure both are using 20Mhz. 5Ghz Router and extender, one uses channel 36, the other uses channel 149 each with 80Mhz of frequency. With this, I am seeing the same throughput that I can get with Ethernet plugged into my router in the 5Ghz frequency band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique product works like a charm Only Moca 2.0 / wireless router I found. Perfect for people with Fios (cable too, I believe) that have coax but no ethernet cabling; high-speed FIOS internet wants Moca 2.0 over the coax. I fixed an in-law apartment that I had tried to provide internet with wireless repeaters (worthless) and was using powerline to connect a remote wifi router to the to the main Fios router -- which is better than nothing but sometimes too slow and occasionally needed resetting. This gizmo allowed me to use Moca 2.0 networking over coax to set up a separate wireless network (I could have used the existing SSIDs if I wanted). Worked seamlessly with FIOS 150 Mbit service/router. With the provided splitter, the Verizon STB in the apartment has full functionality, I get streaming to Apple TV and Roku devices, and have wifi for the small apartment where it is needed. Very fast over the coax, no problems connecting back to the FIos router with simultaneous multiple streaming video and internet. Been running now for 3 weeks without a glitch. Documentation provided was adequate for setting up; basic set up was simple and quick. But to do anything more I had to hunt the internet to find a manual. Some of the router menus seem limited compared to how I would normally set up and secure a router. (SImilar issues with FIOS quantum router -- I guess manufacturers no longer want consumers to manage the security on their routers even if is tighter than the manufacturer default.) The LEDs are a little bright, and I needed an extra coax patch cable for my set up, but they did include a Moca 2.0 compatible bi-directional splitter, which was put to good use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extends my Gigabit Speeds! Amazing! This unit is so easy to setup. My old house has horse hair plaster everywhere and the signals are tough to travel from floor to floor. I put this extender on one side of the house connected to coax and I get my 400-550mbps over WiFi easy on 5.0. Even WiFi outside around 70-80mbps. Once you sync the the router and extender together with WPS Button the extender beams the same WiFi settings and password as the main router. This worked for my Verizon Fios and now I have Gigbit from Xfinity and it’s working like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable Wi-fi Speeds I recently purchased the Actiontec MoCA bonded adapters and was so satisfied I purchased this wireless extender. The download speeds are incredible. I have gotten 100Mps which is equal to my ethernet (wired) download speeds. This varies due to the amount of traffic on my providers network and speeds are not always this fast (wired or wireless). This device is extremely simple to install. Before connecting it to my MoCA active cable tv connection, I set it next to my wi-fi modem and auto installed its wi-fi profile on the Actiontec. All this required was to plug in the device and press the WPS button on the modem and then the device. You don't have to be a computer scientist to get this working and the results are simply amazing. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to extend their wi-fi through their MoCA network.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally the buffering and signal issues with the TV are solv Our router was in a second floor office and we consistently had signal strength issues down stairs.� �Using the existing coax cabling was a great solution.� As always B&H made ordering easy, the price was the best I found and arrived withing a few days.
