I just bought a house, and can't afford to wire it yet (Home Insurance requires a licensed electrician to do it).
I have my computer and my media server that I need to wire, but they're going to be on separate floors. I'm planning on having my modem and wireless router on the ground floor, connected to my media server.
That leaves my personal PC upstairs, with a wireless AC adapter. I'm not positive of the strength of signal my router will be able to manage upstairs, so I need to look at alternatives. And since I have a coax jack in my bedroom, I was thinking a MOCA adapter might work. Does anyone have any experience with Ethernet over MOCA adapters?
I would go for the Powerline adapters. Super easy to use and install. I have used the cheaper AV1 versions on several occasions and it worked flawlessly... to a point. Get them to far apart or have them on separate isolated circuits and it's a no go. But within 20-50 feet has been my experience and that worked great. Dont try to get fancy either and use these with wifi boosters and crazieness like that. just use cat5 and wired connections.
