Good news everyone, I've worked out a deal with the Owner and the 2 of the
Adapter manufacturers. The owner has agreed to allow me to offer service to
2 other MTUs and 5 MDUs, which gave me some negotiation muscle with Corinex

decided to go with Corinex AV200 CableLAN Adapter. Thanks to all on your
feedbacks and ideas.
