Default USB via Network

This thread inspired me to think about using the already available network cable also for the usb-audio.

I have a network 5-port switch which lets me connect my X-Touch and a Notebook (for visual feedback e.g. levels, FX,..) to the XR18.

I was thinking about using one of those relativly cheap usb to network adapters.

Something like this maybe....
https://www.amazon.com/Network-Exten...e%2F6+50+Meter

One could use the same network cable for the control signals, which is midi and does not need a lot of bandwidth, right?

Using a second network switch on the stage which gets the network connection from the XR18 and the USB-audio
after it was connected to a USB to Cat network extender, seems to be neat solution (theoretically).
My notebook is a pretty fast machine and could handle both tasks flawlessly.
And one could check recording levels from the FOH which is not possible when a second notebook is on the stage.

Has anyone tried this?
