hi, looking for the best way to be able to use my desktop upstairs without long cables, i looked at pci wirelessc cards & bought one previously but it kept on cutting out the net connection...cannot remember make etc but at the time i did a search & found that it was prone to cut off the connection..so, now what i am asking is can anyone recommend a really good card or any other option that would give me a good connection or best connection i could hope for anyway..i just want to have a good/constant connection BUT with no cables trailing down the stairs etc..i do have a router & laptop which i currently use wirelessly..a very fast connection speed and i am running winxp os...so any help/advice would be greatly appreciated
Agree with sinbads. I found wireless inconsistent so bought a pack of two homeplugs from Amazon. Brilliant, worked immediately with no setting up required. They were the 200mbs version at just under £55. Forget wireless it's a pain in the butt!
BTW. I thought the homeplugs had to be on the same circuit? ie, if the downstairs ring main is not part of the upstairs ringmain they wont work. Perhaps someone could educate me. P.s. none of the 'click here' links are working for me?
