For historical reasons, our Virgin cable internet comes into the house upstairs. I also had the wireless router up there but coverage at the back of the house was poor. So I eventually movde the router to the middle of the house and used an 85Mbs powerline link (Belkin) to connect the router downstairs and the modem upstairs. It has completely solved the wireless strength issues bothe upstairs and downstairs.
Now, the question is - naturally the 85Mbs rating of the powerline link is likely to be theoretcial only. I'm trying to figure out what a realistic bandwidth for this arrangement is because if it's only 15Mbs, for example, then even my 20Mbs Virgin connection may be slightly compromised (I get around 13Mbs on speed tests and the cabinet is obly 60 yards from the house). In which case there is probably no point in upgrading to the improved virgin 30Mbs option.
Can anyone suggest a way of working out what's what?
