FWIW, since I discovered I don't actually have that old wired router lying around, we're looking at just wiring the house for ethernet.

I've updated the question with names/model numbers and links for the router and the MoCA adaptors.

Wireless bridge was my first thought too, but this piece convinced me it was worth trying MoCA first. A linked review of powerline adapters suggested that they probably wouldn't work well with our breakers.

comment Make wget convert HTML links to relative after download if -k wasn't specified
Cf. @LudovicKuty's comment -- as of wget 1.13 --no-clobber doesn't work with --convert-links. See http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?31781 for details.

comment Allowing VNC connections into Linux Mint
I don't see that in my control center. Maybe they've renamed it in Linux Mint 14, or maybe I'm missing some packages?
