Coaxial to Ethernet?

Hi,

sorry if it’s been asked somewhere already, but I can’t find a similar question.

I have a tv box (1008C STB VM) in room upstairs, which I don’t use now. I still have a cable going all the way from the main tv box downstairs, and I wonder if I could use that coax cable to connect my pc via Ethernet port? Are there any adapters/ converters that would make it work, or can this cable be used only with with the tv box?

Re: Coaxial to Ethernet?

It is possible to use coax for Ethernet, done a lot in the US, but certainly NOT with VM coax. It’s against the T&C to alter the VM installled equipment in any way.

Re: Coaxial to Ethernet?

If you google Moca adapters you will find it’s possible but you need to ensure the cable is not connected to the VM network in any way
