So you’ve read all the studies about our Wireless Wonderland, and you’d like to go wired.
You’ve also watched my first video, No More WiFi: How to wire your home for internet.
You’re not big on drilling holes and running cables everywhere, so you decide to use powerline ethernet or ethernet over coax.

Great information as usual. I would recommend those looking into powerline ethernet read Dr. Samuel Milham’s book “Dirty Electricity” first.

Your video clearly emphasizes the superior characteristics of coaxial cable over powerlines but this book shows the health impacts.
