    "But" maybe you can use diplexers from your 3-way to get the 850 MHz in & out without having problems with the SWM.... hummm

    But, I will need that dongle to carry my network up to my 3 SWM's, then break it out to the SWM's.

    Mrs HDTVFan has taken a quick and strong liking to MRV since day one, and having the kind of performance we may be looking at with our "dongles" (that sounds soooo wrong) will surely make her a very happy camper.

    The other day, she said..."Can't we just watch that show you recorded yesterday in the Theater - up in here in the bedroom with that MVP thingy?"...

    Of course...I said "Yes Dear". :)

    then you would need router>dongle>coax on first SWM>dongle>switch>2 dongles for 2 additional SWMs...the first SWM is already tied in back at the router.

    Riddle me this:
    Router-> Dongle-[coax]-> [not coax] Switch-> 3 dongles-> 3 swm's?

    This much I get: Switch-> 3 dongles-> 3 swm's
    Now either you need your router to connect to this switch [Cat5] or you need another dongle "elsewhere" on one [SWM] coax to go to your router.

    I have not CAT5 running to my SWM's, but I do have an extra RG6 coming from the router area.

    So, I need to turn that Cat6 cable into a LAN.

    Remember folks:
    Don't let your dongles dangle or there will be all hell to pay.

    SO with the RG6, go for the:
    Router -> dongle - RG6 -> 3-way -> diplexer(s) [pointed the correct direction]- SWM

    I have the two SWM's in the attic. The two outputs from each SWM run to a central location (wiring closet).

    All RG6 from every room in the house is also run to the same wiring closet. A 100% RG6 homerun setup.

    There's also multiple ethernet ports in the wiring closet.

    And both PI's are also there (attached to the UPS).

    I can rewire and do just about anything by just re-configuring in the wiring closet.

    So with these dongles ...

    Will put one dongle at all three receiver locations. Each is already hardwired ethernet but will remove and use the dongles instead.

    So now I just need to figure out where to put the 4th dongle to get the network into the RG6.

    Also, once each receiver is on the network, won't each have a DHCP IP address from the network and be able to communicate with any box on the network, along with the internet?
