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.
Edit: 1/22/18 - These have been performing perfectly without issue since original purchase and have been moving continuous video data from security cameras without lag. These were originally purchased to provide a redundant data link but have been put in place as a primary data link between two business buildings and have performed well beyond expectations!
This adapter allowed us to come off of the owner's modem with a cat 6 cable, plug into the adapter, and run through the coax all the way to our suite, where we could then use the second adapter to change back to cat 6, plug into our router, and now we have our own internet and firewall!
It does say DirectTV on it, but that's it. This can be used for any application where coax cable is existing, and you don't want to pull Ethernet cables(cat6). In our case, somebody else owns this home, so I didn't want to start digging up the yard and running conduit and creating a big mess.
When installing, get all your connections together. From the switch, router or modem, run cat6 to the adapter, and on the other end, run the cat6 from the adapter to your device(in our case we connected to our own router so we could set up our own network). Connect everything first and then plug them in. The power lights will come on, and it took about 60-90 seconds before the NETWORK lit up green. At that point, you know you have a solid connection. That's it! I guess you can also get creative with splitters and multiple sets of adapters, but the two sets included in this package was all we needed.
This enabled me to install a "Data Hub/Hot Spot" in the den.. On the end of the den DECA transceiver, is a small 5-Port Ethernet hub, with a small WiFi AP module, and 1 Ethernet cable directly into the Smart TV, to get the best speed yet! I have three open LAN sockets available for adding on other devices that can use Ethernet cables.
Using the WiFi AP inside the Den before wasn't possible it had to be set for 'Repeater' mode, which made for very slow WiFi.. Using AP mode is great! It's like I'm sitting right next to the old Fios WiFi antenna.
Some of the WiFi devices (iPad etc) running in the den are faster than this desktop core i5 plugged right into the fios box.. Which seems a little odd..
For example, I'll use the internet and it'll work great for a minute, then suddenly not load any pages. I don't get connectivity errors, usually just hangs for a few seconds/a minute before picking back up. Another example, I tried to upload some files to dropbox (web-based version). I tried 3-4 times and never got past about 25% without error. Switching to my wireless connection, it went through without a hitch.
So did it work? Yup. Could you network an entire house using this? Yup (probably limited to DirectTV service if you want to still use the coax lines for TV signals). However, I'm looking into alternatives first. Powerline adapters gave me mediocre results (though pretty good when used on the same circuit). Wifi is fine and even considered repeaters, but I really want a solid connection if at all possible.
