asked on

house network

I have cable dsl with a wireless network.

I am trying to get service into a room pretty far away and upstairs from the router.

I tried a dlink signal expander last night, but it didn't seem to do anything.

I was going to run another cable up there and get a new modem, but Comcast said I would have to pay for  new service with a new modem.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would rather not run a network cable the whole way.

Has anyone tried the things to use your house's electrical outlets to run a signal?

Connect the Cable Modem to the Cable/DSL router.  Connect the Cable/DSL Router via a long Network cable to the room that is "pretty far away".  Done.  No extra fees (at least monthly).

I would rather not run a network cable the whole way, it would not be easy.
I am pretty sure there is a coaxl cable near there, but I don't want to pay for new service.

ammowagon - just to be clear - if he's hoping only for internet service, than speeds of electrical networks are not an issue - few people have internet speeds greater than 2-5 Mbit.... well within the range of the electrical network speeds.
