I know this isn't directly to do with Mikrotik hardware/software but I thought this would actually be the best place to get information.
I'm looking to provide internet access to around 50 residential flats in the same building. But given the design and construction wireless isn't an option. Running new cables isn't an option.
So I've been looking into using the existing coax/telephone cabling and I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with this type of undertaking.
I've come across a few products, such as GenfenTV, Devolo Pro and D-link units. All these units seem to be vague.
I've thought of using Powerline products but since each flat has it own distribution board, I don't think they will work through it?
A major cable supplier in the country uses cable modems which transmit over coax cable and seems to get speeds of upto 400mb's, which then has an ethernet adaptor for the network.
Can anyone provide their views on the different methods and equipment they would recommend or stay away from .
