Re: Eero 5 BT Hub and Digital Voice!

Thanks so much for your help. The only concern I have is that it states the house has to work on the same powerline, our garage was converted by previous owners - no idea whether that means it operates on the same powerline or not! I find the wifi fine for what we need and sky have sorted upstairs with a sky booster I believe it's just my son's gaming that's the issue!

What has the garage to do with it?

Powerline adapters normally work provided you only have a single mains feed to the house, which is normally the case, unless people have a separate annex with its own mains feed.

The XBOX can be connected to one of the Ethernet ports on the PLA, eliminating the wireless connection totally.

Re: Eero 5 BT Hub and Digital Voice!

So for me to understand, the PLA is what I'd be purchasing - one would be connected to the BT hub and I'd simply put another in my son's room connected to the Xbox? Is it likely we'd need another in between to help extend the wifi?

Re: Eero 5 BT Hub and Digital Voice!

That is correct, one plugs into the mains socket near the home hub, and is connected via a short Ethernet cable.

The other end is plugged in next to the Xbox, and another short Ethernet cable goes from that unit, to the LAN port on the Xbox. Wireless is not involved with this connection, but the PLA will transmit wireless, so you may find it covers the rest of the house, without any more units.

The Xbox will work better if its not relying on a wireless connection.

The Euro 5 relies on a wireless connection between the units, and will most likely struggle to work if there is a poor signal in the affected room. They are not the best solution in that case.

Thanks so much so would this package be suitable in your opinion? I'm sure I'm able to return the eeros anyway as purchased on amazon.

Re: Eero 5 BT Hub and Digital Voice!

Sorry for all the questions so for example if we're using an extension lead at present we'd put the PLA into the main socket and add the extension into the PLA?

Yes, that would be the correct way to do it.

The item you pointed out, does not transmit wireless as well.
