Coax to Ethernet

Joining in

I've got a line running into my house spit into two cables running one upstairs and one downstairs both carrying internet, the cable upstairs where I was using the modem has broken and they are replacing it in a few days, so I've moved the modem downstairs and its working but was wondering if to save me moving it back upstairs can I just get a connection of just the internet from the coax coming in. I've got power line adapters and mesh network but the speed are not as good as hardwired so I would rather use that as an option.

In theory yes, but the kit to adapt co-ax for ethernet is expensive and slow.  Best to run a Cat 6 cable yourself to a switch and/or wifi access point upstairs.  Cable can be run externally btw, so don't always looks at running cables inside.

This should work:

Rated up to 2.5Gbps.

EDIT: Well the transmission speed is up to 2.5Gbps across several adapters at the same time, however it appears the devices use 1Gbps Ethernet ports!
