    hi everyone. i need some help.

    i have comcast xfinity and want to connect a music server/streamer to my home internet. so i have an active coaxial cable coming out of my wall and i want to somehow convert that to ethernet cable that i can plug into an NAD M50.2 for hardwired internet access. any suggestions on best way to do this.

    Connect your coax to modem then use a switch

    any modem? what kind of switch? i'm dumb at this. lol.

    i contacted comcast and they wanted to charge me for an additional network if i used their modem...

    ^ Seems a bit expensive for what it is, but it'll do the job. I use the more typical, modem - router/switch - powerline or wireless bridge - network streamer solution

    agreed -- actually didn't look at the price. i got a pair for about $150 last year off amazon -- rock solid and super fast.

    edit: looks like they're about $130/pr on ebay.
