So, I have wireless connectivity throughout my house, and it seems to work well. Laptop, Ipad, Iphone all connect fine, with no issues. Blu-ray players on the other hand seem to have some difficulty - either in the connection phase, or even if they do connect, lots of problems with Netflix streaming.
Easy solution for 2 out of 3 players is a wired ethernet connection. Done and done.
But, the 3rd player is in a location that does not currently have an ethernet drop, and in such a place that I cannot get an ethernet drop to it (2nd floor, with finished basement below).
I do, however, have a readily accessible 2nd coax (RG6) connection in that area. Did some research over the weekend, and found it is POSSIBLE to get ethernet over coax. But, the gear needed to do it seems somewhat expensive.
So, I guess before I go further down this road, the questions would be:
1) Is anyone doing this? If so, how well does it work?
2) What gear are you using to do it?
3) Is it worth the cost of the gear needed to do it?
Any help/thoughts are appreciated.
FWIW, I am in Canada - which is noteworthy only so far as the possible availability/end cost of the required switches/adapters/bridges, etc.
