Here's the skinny:
I have FIOS with the provided Actiontec router in my basement. There's an ethernet connection to my PC. The signal is decent throughout most of the house, but on the top floor, not so much. I'd like to build my son a PC and want him to have good 'net access in his room (top floor). I've done some research and found this as a possible solution:
Amazon.com: Actiontec Ethernet over Coax MoCA Adapter - Single: Electronics
Before I fork out the cash, I want to make sure it will do the following:
He currently has a cable drop in his room with a STB (no HD, just has a crappy old 13" TV right now). I'd like to hook up the ECB2200 to the coax and then hook the STB to a tuner card in the new PC (thus, eliminating the need for a separate TV).
So, will this provide connection to the internet without the need for another router? Or am I missing a component? I've tried an extender, but it does not play well with the Actiontec (been through the manufacturer's help desk as well as Verizon with no luck). I think I'd prefer hardwire anyway. Networking just isn't my bag!
Thanks in advance for any advice!
