Domestic advice wanted
Dear All, I've not been happy with the performance of my home wireless network, and am looking at alternatives.
I will keep the wireless aspect for laptops (4 in our house), but I have 2 main hubs of IT gear in the house.
1) Main group by the TV downstairs comprising of a Vista MCPC, XBox 360, Bluray player and Netgear 824g router.
2) Upstairs office, main Vista PC, NAS (Icybox), and 2 printers connected to a Netgear 606 wireless print server/hub.
It's the connection between the 2 sites I am not happy with.
I am thinking of replacing the wireless link between the 2 with a Main Ethernet system (perhaps the new Belkin powerline stuff Belkin Powerline HD Gigabit mains Ethernet adaptor ? Register Hardware).
I would want to keep the 606 just as a print server/switch, but not use it's wifi bits.
Does this seem like a plan, or am I missing something obvious?
Hi Rick. I'll lend you one of the Ruckus base units for a while if you like. You'll be able to pick up a signal from down the road, as well as catering for 100 clients off it!
Purely as a stop gap you understand!
reading the post title i thought it probably wasnt the best place to post this (..domestic advice wanted) then read the post..woops! :doh:
The existing wireless solution works but is too slow for streaming media, hence the proposed new solution.
Perhaps I should have titled it 'Domemstic Goddess Wanted'??:D
