Just remember that unlike conventional MoCA which operates in the 1.1+ GHz range, the DECA frequency band operates between 400-600 MHz, so do not attempt to diplex in any cable channels, cable modem, or OTA signals through the same cables distributing the DECA signals.

You can use Ethernet over Powerline adapters to do what you want. You plug one in near your router/modem connect a cable to it and then plug a second one in wherever your device/computer is. That way you have an ethernet connection direct to your computer over your house wiring. I've used these things for a while and they work very well.
True, just be advised that with power line adapters (Home Plug), if the two A/C receptacles happen to be on the opposite sides of the power lines you may have connectivity issues since the only way for ethernet traffic to get to the other adapter is by going all the way out to a power transformer on a utility pole and swing around its center tapped secondary to the other line side then travel back down to the residence to the other adapter.
Needles to say such a long round trip way to travel with lots of opportunity for signal derogation and interference to accumulate.

I haven't had that issue. I've used a couple of these to get an Internet connection to our computers and DTV dvrs without a problem. Other locations might have a problem but we haven't.
Using a couple of Home Plug adapters here myself for connection to a network printer. Formerly had a desktop PC on Home Plug as well. Worked fine until the PC needed to be relocated to another room, then had all kinds of connection problems with it. Assumed it was due to the "opposite side of the A/C mains" problem.
Had to put that PC on WiFi through a wireless-N PCI card with MIMO antenna array.
