Words from the company:
The Corinex CableLAN Adapter developed by Corinex Communications represents a new and innovative solution for data communications over cable TV networks, without interfering with your TV watching habits or quality. Corinex CableLAN technology offers users a wide range of networking options by using existing coaxial cables for communication at 14 Mbps data rates, while people are watching TV or not. The CableLAN adapters allow users to create a real LAN environment using existing TV cables within buildings as the physical connection - CableLAN networking. Every TV socket in your home or office building could be a network connection by using a Corinex CableLAN adapter. When deployed in more complex or remote networks, Corinex Open Powerline Management offers intelligent tools for easy network setup, connection
quality measurement and secured communication connections.

The Review:
The Corinex CableLAN is another highly innovative and easy to use product for any new or existing network setup for home or business. All you do is plug it in and away you go. The Corinex CableLAN Adapter is a network adapter using the coaxial TV cable as a medium for communications. After an easy installation, the indoor CableLAN network behaves like a traditional LAN for computers. This can provide computer file and print sharing, share broadband internet access, and network all computers and other network devices using the cable TV infrastructure within a building or home. These devices can be used with other Corinex products which include the Corinex Powerline Ethernet Adapter, the Corinex Powerline USB Adapter, and the Corinex Powerline Router to integrate any network solution that is needed. One thing to keep in mind is that you will need at least two adapters to begin with.

How I tested the Corinex CableLAN Adapter:
I wanted to connect one PC in a room with cable TV to a second PC connected to an existing network in another room with a cable TV connection. In room one: 1) Plug the coax Cable TV cable into the Corinex CableLAN. 2) Plug the Ethernet cable into the Corinex CableLAN and the Ethernet slot in the PC. In room two: 1) Plug the coax Cable TV cable into the Corinex CableLAN. 2) Plug the Ethernet cable into the Corinex CableLAN and into a slot in a hub or switch (existing network with DHCP Server and other PCs). 3) Turn on the PC in room one and it received an IP dynamically from the existing network. I was then able to access the internet and shares through the existing Cable TV wiring.
