Netgear quietly introduced us to its MCAB1001 MoCA Coax-Ethernet adapter (among other things
) at CES this year, but the curiously useful device has just now set itself up for pre-ordering. Put simply, this is the
device to get for those who both loathe wireless (and all those inexplicable dropouts) and can't pony up the courage / fundage / willpower to wire their home with Ethernet. By enabling users to extend Ethernet signals over existing in-wall coax cabling, you can easily pass along web content, Blu-ray / DVD material or practically any other digital signal over the coax network that's (hopefully) already established within your domicile's walls. Yeah, $229.99 is
a bit pricey, but go price out a house full of Ethernet and then reevaluate.
