In my upstairs office, I have a Netgear D6200 router connected to an external fiber optic service.
Attached to this router, I have the following devices connected via Ethernet cable:
1 x Win7 Desktop PC
1 x QNAP NAS TS420 (Dual Ethernet ports)
1 x TP Link TL-PA411 powerline adapter
Connected to the powerline adapter above is one TP Link TL-WPA4220. It is located downstairs and plugged into the same electrical circuit as the above.
Now, when I use my Win7 desktop pc upstairs, I can access my NAS directly via Windows without any issues.
However, with my downstairs laptop which is connected to the powerline adapter TP Link TL-WPA4220 via Ethernet cable, I cannot access it at all.
Has anyone got any tips on how I can resolve this issue without running a cable from the router all the way downstairs to my laptop?
