Looking to expand my home wired/wifi network to include my Sony Bravia TV.
The TV does not have a convenient ethernet connection near it; I drape a Cat 5 cable across the room, from another room, to use the TVs internet service at present.
So looking at a Homeplug setup to avoid chasing/carpet removal/replacement etc. Firstly I see that Develo make the kits but seem more expensive than others. Is this a case of the more you pay the more you get i.e. more reliable/less flaky than cheaper systems?
Secondly does the feed from the internet to the first homeplug need to come directly from the DSL router. The most convenient power socket is next to an ethernet socket that is itself fed from one of the ports from my Thomson TG784 router. Into this ethernet socket is plugged the Cat 5 cable that feeds my Netgear WAP. I would like to plug an ethernet splitter into this socket and plug the cable that feeds the Netgear into one side of the splitter and the feed to the first homeplug into the other; the second homeplug will be plugged into the other socket, of the double power faceplate, that supplies power to the TV. A short Cat 5 cable can then go from this homeplug into the ethernet socket on the TV.
Any advice please?
