The guy with MoCA adapters that fail... He has to be sure that any splitters along the way are compatible (will pass the right frequencies). Also, if the cable is connected to CATV, he may need an in-line filter that will prevent his in-house MoCA signalling from propagating up the line to the cable company or the neighbors if the neighborhood infrastructure is old enough.
