GigaPower UVerse TV - wanting to switch from wireless to wired receivers
We've had GigaPower UVerse with UVerse TV now for about 6 months and during that time we continue to have several times a day that the wireless receivers lose the signal. A quick channel up/down will get it back going, but its just annoying for an otherwise nice system.
Our setup is a Pace 5268AC gateway in one end of the house upstairs, with a wired DVR close buy; and then two wireless receivers downstairs in our family room and master bedroom. The gateway has a small dedicated wireless access point that I was told is used to communicate with the receivers. I have all the other WiFi abilities of the gateway disabled. Up until this week, I had two Airport Extremes that I used for our WiFi usage. One was near the gateway, and the other near one of the wireless receivers downstairs. They were connected via a MoCA 2.1 network over coax. AT&T came to the house a couple of times and said we should try to move the AEs around to create separation from the UVerse receivers, which I've tried to do to no avail. I just replaced the Airports with a Netgear Orbi router and remote receiver in the same locations. This eliminated the need for the MoCA network, so my coax is now free. I'm still getting the outages multiple times a day.
What I'd like to do is replace the two wireless receivers with wired receivers; and use the coax (or could use MoCA 2.0 if it requires CAT6) to connect them back to the gateway. Before I call AT&T to discuss this, is there any particular problem with doing this?
Can I use coax, or do I need to use CAT6? If CAT6, I get about 600mbps through MoCA, so I would think that would work fine. I'm not using it for anything else at this point.
Should the performance be about the same with wired vs. wireless?
