Wireless Access Point After MoCA Adapter Fails

Hey guys I have a Trendnet wireless router setup after an actiontec moca adapter in my upstairs bedroom. I have my desktop running ethernet on that trendnet and a switch ->trendnet for my xb1, roku, etc. Basically comcast router -> MoCA adapter -> trendnet -> switch. My trendnet is currently configured as a switch/access point and the switch portion of it works fine. However, the wireless access point fails miserably. Now initially if I reboot the comcast router I have to reset the moca adapter without the coaxial line connected and then reconnect the coaxial line once it has booted in order to bridge the connection again(I'm not sure if my understanding of this or the terminology is correct).

My question is why does the wireless access point fail?

So you have moca adapter pluged into LAN port of trendnet, and other devices pluged into the lan ports of your trendnet ap as well. Wired devices work, but wireless does not. Is this correct?

If that is the case then there must just be something configured wrong with wireless because your access point has to be getting network connection and relaying properly to provide network connection to the wired devices.

I would think that as well. However, if I plug the device in to the comcast provided router downstairs the device works flawlessly. It seems almost as if only whatever is connected at the time I reboot the actiontec moca adapter gets internet.

When you connect to the moca and when you connect direcetly to primary router you use a LAN port on the access point and not the WAN port correct?
