Wireless alternatives
I've been trying to look for a Cat5 to Coax adapter for the past few days so that I could hook an XBOX on a new tv to my router in my basement which is over 100 ft away.
I've been all over the net and to Best Buy and CompUSA. I've found a couple adapters online but they are only for test units for checking the line signal. At Best Buy they told me there was no such thing, check Radioshack. So I took the advice of someone on this board and headed over to CompUSA where I was told they had this product but CompUSA told me no. Now, since I've been told that there is no such thing im assuming that there is no such thing.

If someone could give me an alternative to going wireless and running a 100+ cable around my house I was appreciate it very much. Thanks!

Well, since I have one in my closet, I can assure you that they exist. Here's a URL, they cost $50, at least that's what this says. http://www.nudata.com/networks/trans...aconverter.htm

Do you still use yours? I'd be really interested in buying it and one from that site you gave me.
