How can I connect the equipment near my TV to the Internet, without using Wi-Fi and laying networking cables? By using your existing coaxial network! Coax ensures a stable connection, is suitable for the most demanding HD video streaming, and the cable is already there anyway!
Over a CAT5 network
If you are in the position to lay CAT5 (networking) cables, this is the best solution. But what are the alternatives if you do not want to, or don't have the ability to do this?
Wirelessly over Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n)
Because of its flexibility and mobility, Internet over Wi-Fi is particularly suitable for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks. Bandwidth and reliability are very dependent on the distance and any obstacles such as walls, ceilings and other wireless networks.
Over the existing power network
This technique is particularly suitable to connect networked printers or PC's, and for email and web browsing. It is less suitable for streaming HD video content, as this puts greater demands on the network. Various solutions are available in today's market. Most of them are not suitable for HD streaming and often have a very limited range (to the bedroom is, in practice, usually not feasible).
New: over the existing coaxial network
New technology makes it possible to add to your existing coaxial network a reliable, high-bandwidth home network that is suitable for multiple HD streams and fast internet connections. This is done using the Marmitek IPTV Coax Pro! This IP over Coax solution is the best alternative for laying a networking cable (CAT5/6).
