How can I improve the "Dead Spot" on my wireless network?
After last week’s question regarding issues with streaming video, some client’s have asked what can be done if an Ethernet cable cannot be run from the router to the TV or to an area in the home where the wireless signal is weak or non-existent. There is a solution that actually uses the electrical wires already running through your home and is commonly referred to as “Power Line Networking”. All that is needed is a Powerline Adapter kit. Some entry-level kits start at $30. Simply plug in one of the Powerline adapters into an electrical wall outlet near your router and then use a short Ethernet cable to connect the Powerline Adapter to the router. Plug the 2nd Powerline Adapter into an electrical outlet near your TV and connect the Adapter to your TV with a 2nd Ethernet cable.
