      That's what I found, and a direct 100 Mbps Ethernet connection is what
      I use. The cable is buried in plastic conduit about a foot underground.
      Before I buried it, a nearby lightning strike induced voltage that
      zapped several ports in an Ethernet switch inside the house, plus the
      Ethernet port in the observatory computer. IMO, buried cable is the best
      way to go.
