Powerline Adaptors for fibre broadband

  adpegg01 20:47 23 Oct 2014

I am thinking of using Powerline Adaptors so that I can stream content to my TV and get a much faster signal to computers upstairs. The entry point for the fibre broadband is really inconvenient and the wireless router not good! The sites I have looked at say that Powerline Adaptors only work on the same electrical circuit. I want to put a Powerline Adaptor in the lounge to stream TV but this is not on the same circuit breaker in the consumer unit as the socket near the fibre entry point. Am I right in thinking that this means I cannot use Powerline adaptors between these 2 points? If so has anyone got any suggestions for a solution?

Mine work ok (mains cables, lounge and bedroom wired to different fuses in consumer box).

As long as they are connected to the same consumer unit, they will work OK.

Just to temper the situation, mine didn't work on different ring mains but that was a couple of years ago so maybe they have improved since then
