A few caveats:
- Ideally, your coax should be "star" configuration, or all rooms terminating in a single point. Your network speeds and bandwidth will be reduced the more splitters you have to traverse.
- If your coax cables are not labeled at your patch panel (mine were not), you can use a DMM and some test leads to test the cable to find the correct connection. Create a closed loop at the distant end of the cable you wish to locate, and then test each cable at the panel. Only your cable will be closed loop, all the others should show OL (open loop) on your DMM.
- You also need a relatively noise-free coax network. If you're already sending lots of video signals across your coax, your Ethernet speed and throughput will also be slightly reduced. Not unusable, just not super fast. For me, the coax to that room was unused, and since nothing else was riding that coax, I'm getting great speed.
We are seeing great throughput on the coax, with speeds that best our wireless network. Considering we are adding a computer into that room (which does not have a wireless adapter), the Ethernet was mandatory. And for ~$13, you literally can't beat it.
If you do not have cable, or just have an extra run of coax you aren't using, these are a much less expensive option versus the MOCA adapters. I highly recommend them. And for whats it's worth it really has nothing to do with Direct TV. I assume they are a part in a kit for installers and used if the customer wants satellite internet too. Since most people only want TV from direct TV, they have an over stock of these units and thus selling them cheap. That also means they can't disappear at any time, so don't hesitate and but it now!
Edit: 9/7/16 - I tried to push these to 1200 feet with no luck and while they tried to connect at 650' they never synced up so these are best used at distances below 500'. The good news is when they do sync up they provide great bi-directional speed.
Edit: 1/4/17 - I have been using these for the past 4 months on a continuous bi-directional data link for IP cameras (Approximately 20mbps continuous) and they have performed flawlessly, providing full data port saturation when needed and have required no rebooting.
My house has cable TV to all rooms. I moved from cable to satellite to a cord cutter for years now. I have only cable internet so I've been looking for ways to turn the cables into an ethernet network. Maybe these adaptors are around for years but nobody sold them as ethernet over unused coax cable. Not until something new maybe coming up and they are dumping it. I saw generation III when I brought this.
The adaptor specifies a power supply unit of 12V, 1.5A. That's 18W. But the actual input current used is small. Measuring with a kill-a-watt, the wattage is 4W when ethernet is connected, 3.5W when the ethernet is not plugged in nor used at the receiver end. It's not very green but the pair cost some $10 per year to run. Each of the pair has a power consumption about the same as a wifi router, depending on how fancy your router is. So this is a very attractive solution compared to using repeaters.
Confirmed: if you want multiple ethernet link from your router, you don't need one pair of transmitter / receiver for each link. You just need one transmitter. You can just use a coax splitter to create two links. Each link end up with a receiver. The max number of shared coax links is limited as each splitter at least decrease the signal power by half.
