Engineer to move Broadband router We need to move our Broadband router from the top of the house to a downstairs room. Can anyone recommend someone who could do this for us please?

Please give me a call on 0777 1714143 to discuss this.ThanksShahid Tzctstre 10 months, 3 weeks ago In principle you don't need to move it. You can user your power sockets to make a home network, these devices work out of the box: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00297IPY0 Andy L 10 months, 3 weeks ago As Tzctstre says, you should be able to avoid needing to move the router, or doing any extra cabling.I have done a number of jobs recently for Streetlife members along the lines laid out below. Let me know if I can be of assistance or you would like to further discuss your options.This is increasingly a problem with our densely populated terraced London streets which suffer from saturation and overlapping of wireless networks, resulting in signal congestion and poor transfer speeds, especially in large houses with several floors.By utilising a detailed site survey, precise configuration of multiple wireless routers and Homeplugs (networking over existing domestic electrical wiring), all family members can have full speed simultaneous internet access, on all devices, anywhere in the house, garden and external offices. Without the need for any structured cabling, from a single broadband subscription.Andy07976 847659 Tracey R 10 months, 3 weeks ago Thanks Tzctstre for the link to the adapters - very useful - just a note (from Amazon) that they only work on the same wiring circuit so you'll probably need to know how your property is wired to get the best effect. I'm with The Simple Web Company Shahid Rafiq 10 months, 3 weeks ago hi Tracey,Yes that the issue with upstairs/downstairs/extentions you find them on a different different power circuits. Matthew G 10 months, 3 weeks ago The powerline adaptors don't work across multiple power phases which is very different from the different circuits you have coming from your consumer unit.It is extremely rare in the UK for a single house to use multiple phases. Unless your home is enormous then this is very unlikely to be an issue.We use powerline adaptors at home and get a good link wherever we plug them in. Tzctstre 10 months, 3 weeks ago I have these adapters everywhere, both upstairs and downstairs.You can buy them and if they don't work return them back. The ones I pointed out work out of the box, no configuration needed. Shahid Rafiq 10 months, 3 weeks ago Thanks Matthew,hmmm.. the person who was giving me a quote for some building work, gave me the wrong info, about circuit boards and phases.thanksShahid Mrs P 10 months, 3 weeks ago Thank you all for your very interesting responses. We need to think about the best way to proceed now! Marianne I 10 months, 3 weeks ago Hi all,I have been following this posting with great interest.Currently I use wireless broadband in my house, but indeed reception is far from good in some parts of the property.I would like to be able to continue wireless access, combined with wired, via these adaptors; is that possible?Especially as I also use an iPad, which, as far as I know, can't be plugged into wired broadband?Can one link an adapter to the wireless modem? Shahid Rafiq 10 months, 3 weeks ago hi Marianne,Yes that is possible you need to get a wireless powerline adapter. There extend the range of your wireless network. There are a number of different companies that do these. I purchased one of these for a client and they are very happy with it. There are a number of companies (prices vary) that do these but I normally buy netgrear products see example (this one will probably suit your needs) - http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/120939324880?var=lv<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&cbt=y (£80), If you want to have a look other similar products type in wireless powerline adapters (note the highter Mbps the quicker the transfer speed connection)Give me a shout if you have any questions.ThanksShahid Andy L 10 months, 3 weeks ago Marianne,Yes indeed the wired and wireless can be mixed and matched throughout your house.By using the powerline adapters you can install additional wireless access points at the extremities of your property, so as to give full seamless wireless coverage as you walk from room to room and your iPad will automatically switch to use the stronger signal.Obviously there is a bit of set up and configuration to do to get this working, drop me a line of you would like some assistance with that.I would be happy to visit you at your house and offer a free consultation to investigate the options available to you.Andy07976 847 659 Comments are closed.
