Extend home network: Powerline networking or ethernet over coax
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have a client that built a huge house, but unfortunately there was only two network jacks put in. One in the basement and one in an office upstairs. Also some of the walls are stone. He wants me to get the wifi coverage throughout the house and pool area.
I have tried setting up a repeater, but that didn't work too well.
I have been looking into maybe getting some Powerline network adapters to connect one or 2 AP's or another option could be running the ethernet through the coax because there are TV connections in every room. I see D-Link make the DXN-221.
Does anyone have any experience with either of these? What brand did you use?
Is either a very good solution?
