... then I use Devolo Homeplugs to take it to power sockets around the house ....Ummm.
What speed Devolos? From other posts it seems on FTTC that even 200Mbps ones can struggle. Anything lower, like 85Mbps ones, just aren't fast enough.
I assume they will work, just nowhere near full FTTC speed.
They are the 200 Mbps ones.
At the moment, my set up is:
Study/Office: Netgear ADSL wifi router, 4 ethernet feeds to main Mac computer, printer, Time Capsule, and to Homeplug, all in the same room.
Main Bedroom: Apple TV running off an ethernet Homeplug to network
Living room: Mac Mini acting as a media centre for movies and tv shows, connected to network via ethernet HomePlug
B&W speaker system with iPod Touch connected to network via wifi, streaming from iTunes Match or Spotify
Laptop in use in living room sometimes via Wifi and sometimes via Ethernet Homeplug
iPad and iPhones connect via Wifi all the time
Wifi round here does get very congested, hence the Homeplugs. Sometimes I am ok on wifi, sometimes not.
It's not the end of the world if I can't use the Homeplugs really. I can juggle the wifi. It's just that I've always presumed a wired connection is better, even if via a Homeplug.
