We're moving in to a new house at the end of the month and it is not prewired with Cat5e/6 - it might have Cat5 behind the phone outlets. I need to connect the office, which will have the cable modem, wireless router, NAS and office computer (plus laptop) with the basement which will have the Wii and Media Center PC and with the living room, which will have the Xbox 360, acting as a Media Center extender.
I originally thought about powerline adapters, but the basement is on a separate sub-panel and I don't think I would get great performance there. Someone recommended MoCA bridges, which I think will work well - there is no shortage of coax connections in the house.
The only problem is I can't find any retail store (local or online) that has them in stock. I'm looking for either the Actiontec, Netgear or D-link products. All 3 show out of stock at newegg, amazon, Walmart, Best-Buy, etc... all I see are off-sites I've never heard of. Am I missing something? Are all the main producers giving up on these in the retail market. If so, that's a shame, these seem to be exactly what I need. Are there other brands or retailers I should consider?
