Powerline network bridge
Posted on 2004-09-26
I need to bridge two networks at different ends of my house for Internet access purposes. I am looking at Powerline networking. Specifically the Linksys PLEBR10 Powerline network bridge. I have two seperate networks with a switch on both sides. My question is, can I use two of these powerline bridge units to bridge the two networks? The standard configuration seems to be to use the bridge on the Internet side and then use USB adaptors for each computer, but this is not what I want to do. If these units will not function in that manner, are there two powerline bridge units on the market that will? Or other recommended hardware in general? I've already tried wireless and the signal strength is dismal. I don't want to run phoneline networking equipment because the phone line is running DSL.
