The D-Link HD MediaBridge Coax Network Starter Kit (DXN-221) is a simple solution for enabling network access by utilizing your home's existing coaxial (cable) wiring. The HD MediaBridge kit includes two HD MediaBridge Coax Network Adapters (DXN-220), each with an Ethernet port and a coaxial connector to easily connect to available coaxial outlets.

This review is from: D-Link DXN-221 HD MediaBridge Coax Network Starter Kit
Pros: Works as described. Easy to connect. Did not have to configure and worked right out of the box. Fast and reliable.... Connected everything together and tested connectivity as is out of the box and everything worked immediately without configuring. Your experience may vary but with an average home TV cable topology I don't think you'll have any problems.
Cons: Only 10/100 connectivity speeds. Was unsure of initial layout and connection with coaxial. Each box has 2 coax connections, one labeled IN/OUT and the other just OUT. With a cable company DVR/Set Top Box, and a Motorola SurfBoard Cable modem it was unclear if Out connection was one way or not. Turns out both connections are 2 way.
Other Thoughts: Really wish they made a 10/100/1000 device.
