I’ve tried doing my own research online but haven’t been able to find anything that matches my situation.
I currently rent one side of a two-family apartment. The cable for our units runs from the street onto a demarc on the neighbors side of the house, and then from that two coaxial runs exit. One goes into my neighbors basement (for their cable service) and the other runs to my side of the house. Before it enters my house, there is a coaxial splitter. One end of the split goes through my siding into my living room (this is the coaxial we use to power our modem/router in the house), the other end goes up to my second floor and goes through the siding into my bedroom (I’m assuming this was for TV service in the past, I don’t have it hooked up).
Since it is an apartment I don’t want to get into running wires through walls, so is there any way to get wired Internet into my bedroom upstairs so I can hardwire my computer/TV. Currently the WiFi is just okay, as it has to connect to the router a floor below.
I have read up on Powerline adapters but I’m worried about the signal with this being a two family with a mess of wiring done (Old single unit split into two). We have had issues with our neighbors electrical panel and ours in the past.
I have also ready about MoCA devices but it seems like you need to have existing coaxial wiring in the house for this to work. I don’t have any coaxial wiring in my house, just the two wires that terminate in my living room/bedroom from outside.
What are my options to get wired internet upstairs? It’s my understanding I can’t connect a second modem/router combo as I would need a second internet plan. The modem/router needs to stay downstairs as that is where our living room TV and other primary devices are.
Below is a rough sketch from paint, sorry if it is unclear.
