Use Bell Fibe TV Receiver as Ethernet Hub
I believe this may have been asked before, but I am unable to get a clear answer.
I live in an open concept condo. I currently have bell Fibe to the home (FTTH) 50/50.
the condo was built last year and was pre-wired and the router/sagemcom had to be installed in my closet of my second bedroom.
I have my TV setup in my living room which is on the other end of the condo.
I have a ps4, fibe receiver, HTPC and some other devices with my TV.
The wifi is very bad in my condo, so I'd like to have an ethernet connection sent to my living room. The problem is running the cable neatly is quite difficult but not impossible.
I am wondering if there is any other solution, such as using the Bell Fibe Tv receivers ethernet port to feed internet to an ethernet switch and then to my devices. Or is there another easier solution?
I want to continue to use my Fibe Receiver to watch TV and record properly. I do have a second receiver in one of the bedrooms as well.
BTW, i've tried several Powerline's and they were pretty much giving the same speed as my Wifi.
