Check my username, I'd be using two juice cans and a string if it still worked. I've done MRV over ethernet. I've had to reset my router more than once to clear a port blocking glitch. I've been on DECA for 2-3 years and rebooting a receiver has been about the worst case to resolve a problem. DECA works, doesn't require any more cabling and is under the system test functions in the receivers that have it internally. Can't get much better than that. This house has zero ethernet cables in use. WiFi connects everything to the internet.
