My internet is supplied by sky, the modem/router has 4 wired outputs all of which are in use, one of these is in my daughters room. She wants to be able to connect both her PC and Xbox to the internet. WiFi is very dodgy in her room, probably because of the distance and amount of solid brick walls between her and the router, is there any way of splitting the wired connection between the 2 and have both of them working at the same time.

Hmm, I use them myself, never had a problem, just faster than wireless.

Radio interference, security problems service drop out. Radio hams are trying to get them baned.

Radio interference - ?? They are not wireless!!

They cause the signal to radiate from the mains wiring because there is no suppression on mains wiring.

Never heard of that, must pardon my ignorance. It never upset my CB'ing, though I am not a Ham. As I said earlier, I have not had any problems, just great Internet in whichever room I choose.

Not quite sure why hams are still around. With all the advances in (free) international, quality comms I would have thought they would have given up!
