Re: Router to use for infinity

Could you not combine powerline adapters with a wireless extender located in your sitting area / kitchen to get a decent signal throughout the whole house?

Re: Router to use for infinity

Ive tried using a tp link and connecting it in the sitting room but for some reason i can't get it to work. The sitting room and study are on the same circuit and i am following instructions. Maybe I'm missing something.

I think TP Links have a pair button that needs to be pressed for about 10 seconds then the pair button on the second TP Link pressed for 10 seconds before they make a connection.

 

Might be wrong though!

You don't even need to-do that with them, just plug the main one in first at the router. Then plug the other where ever you want it then it will automatically find it, give it about a minute and they will connect to each other.

Re: Router to use for infinity

I have tried pairing them and then just plugging them in. No luck, which is why I am looking at an alternative router.

Re: Router to use for infinity

I've used a Billion 7800N and Asus RT-N66U & both give good coverage throughout my large house.

 

The beauty of the Asus , which I'm using now, is that it's dual band on wireless and has a guest network facility meaning that my family can use my wifi when they're around but can't access my home network.

Re: Router to use for infinity

Thanks. Do I still have to use the  BT modem or does it replace both boxes?
