Turn Your Coax Cables Into an Ultra-Fast Network
Can connect up to 16 devices within a G.hn Coax Adapter cable network. A minimum of two devices is required to setup a connection.
Q: When can I use the GCA-7000?
A: The GCA-7000 is an excellent option for Service Providers who need a fast and reliable way to connect Ethernet devices.
The GCA-7000 CAN be used when the coax cable is not being used (i.e. “Dark Coax”).
The GCA-7000 CANNOT be used when the coax cable is being used for Cable TV/Satellite TV Services.
Q: How do I install my GCA-7000?
A: Simply plug and play! Please note it takes two units to make a proper connection. One will be placed by your network device (i.e. Modem, Router, Access Point), another unit will be placed by the remote device you wish to connect. Please refer to the Quick Installation Guide that comes with your GCA-7000.
Q: Can my GCA-7000 be secured?
A: Yes, simply press the “Security” button on each of the two GCA-7000 until you see the Security LED start blinking GREEN and they will be paired up in secure mode. You can refer to Section C in the Quick Installation Guide.
Q: If I purchase additional GCA-7000 adapters, how do I add it to the existing network at home?
A: If the existing GCA-7000 network has not previously been secured (eg. The Security LED on GCA-7000 is off), simply connect the additional GCA-7000 to the coax outlet and it will pair up with the existing network instantly.
If the existing network has already been secured, it is easy too – simply push the “Security” button on one of the existing GCA-7000 until the Security LED starts blinking GREEN. Repeat this for the newly installed adapter as well, and you are all set!
You can refer to sections B & C in the Quick Installation Guide.
Q: How many devices can I connect using the GCA-7000?
A: You can build a network of up to 16 adapters using one GCA-7000 for each device.
Q: What type of application is the GCA-7000 suitable for?
A: The GCA-7000 is ideal for any high-bandwidth applications such as video streaming, online gaming, web surfing, video chatting, or anything that needs a reliable connection to the Internet.
Q: Which connector should I use to connect my Coax Outlet to the Coax Adapter?
A. Please use the G.hn connector– it is used to transmit networking traffic between your home networking device.
Q. When should I use the TV OUT connector?
The TV OUT connector is to be used only when transmitting CATV (Community Access Television/ Community Antenna Television) to your TV.
Q: Is the GCA-7000 interoperable with MoCA adapters?
A: No, it is not. If a location has implemented MoCA over Coax to deliver Internet service, the G.hn over Coax solution will not work in those specific locations due to frequency conflict issues with MoCA over Coax.
Q: Will the GCA-7000 operate in Cable modem environments (active cable installations)?
A: No, it will not. If a location uses a Cable modem (for Cable video/Cable Internet services) then that location uses the coaxial cable. The GCA-7000 cannot interoperate with Cable services as there will be a frequency conflict between the Cable modem (using DOCSIS) and GCA-7000 (using G.hn over Coax).
Q. Can I use G.hn Wave 1 (GCA-6000) and G.hn Wave 2 (GCA-7000) on the same network?
A. We do not recommend using G.hn Wave 1 and G.hn Wave 2 together in a single network.
Q: What should I do if my GCA-7000 will not power on?
A. If your GCA-7000 adapter will not power on, then try using a different power adapter to determine if the power adapter is faulty.
Q. What should I do if my devices will not connect?
A: If your GCA-7000 adapters are not connecting (i.e. the Connection LED is OFF), then first plug the problem GCA-7000 unit into a coax outlet next to the other GCA-7000 unit; both GCA-7000 having been connected by Ethernet cable to their respective devices (i.e. Network Device, Smart TV, PC, etc.). After approximately 10 seconds, the Connection LED should light up GREEN. If not, then first reset both devices by pressing the Reset Button on each adapter for more than 10 seconds. Then go to Step B in the Quick Install Guide and follow the installation steps.
Q: What if I run into any issues during installation?
A: Please contact us:
