True, but for set top boxes it has it's merits.  Mainly because they're not 
likely to be demanding a lot throughput, let alone much collision-sensitive 
traffic.  Because the bulk of their consumption is a cable signal on the 
rest of the frequencies.  So their MOCA traffic is usually relegated to dhcp 
lease, guide data and ISP head-end streamed video.  It's only when the 
idiots trying to use it for real networking that it becomes a bit of a joke. 
Just pull the eff'ng CAT5 you cheapskate bastards...

Hey. Just read this paper about "ALOHAnet". Seems like we might be able
to networking over radio frequencies? Think of it -- no wires. But it
seems to depend on something called "CSMA" which seems pretty flaky. I
think I'll stick with point-to-point Ethernet.
