I would second More Fiber's recommendations to setup a MOCA bridge, as that will provide you will full speed over coaxial wiring - plus wireless signal.

You can pick up a pre-owned MI424 Rev. C or F for under $20 shipped, get a line spliter and a short coaxial to go between the line output and the MOCA (secondary MI424) bridge - and with moderate setup, all can be done in under 1 hour - have both full wired & wireless output on both level.

I set ours up almost a year ago using an Rev.A MI424 on our 1st. level as the secondary, as the primary Rev.I MI424 is upstairs, with the main box & BBU coming in thru down in the basement - and we have excellent everywhere, including the yards.
