Hi Keith -no I can't do that -I need to access the homehub wired ethernet connections. The master is at the other end of the house upstairs.
Thats no problem, you simply extend just one of the Ethernet connections via a powerline adapter, and put an Ethernet switch(s) at the end. You can have as many connectios as you like.
See this example below.
Thaks Keith -Didnt think of that one-Have you any recommendations manufacturer wise?
The devices shown on my diagram are the ones I have here, and use when I want to extend my network to the garage.
They are also used by other forum members. Is you search on sites like Amazon, you will find they are not too expensive.
The main advantage, is that you can locate your network anywhere there is a power socket, keeping your home hub connected to the test socket.
If you need to have the extension to carry the phone line, then change the front plate of your master socket to one like this.
It has a filter built in, to stop the broadband signal going down the extension cabling. The home hub plugs into the front.
Speed sharply down yet again - any ideas?.
Ok maybe I expressed it the wrong way, but why does it take forever to open web pages on all devices? And painfully slow downloads. ADSL faceplate now fitted to the master socket etc etc.
