Sadly my Ethernet over Power adaptors have given up the ghost after only 18 months service but in any event service was degraded over that connection.
As a replacement a USB wireless adaptor was brought into service but unfortunately only one/two bars connectivity appears, often just one and sometimes the connection is lost. The adaptor is connected by a short USB cable but repositioning the receiver doesn't help.
Running a wired connection in the bungalow is not a viable option because the depth of insulation is such that you can't be sure of the location of the rafters. A visible cable run is vetoed by the lady of the house.
So that only leaves two practical alternatives:
1) Moving the master socket with external cabling so that the router can be placed near the computer. I think that will cost £150.
2) To use the Draytek 700 unit which should in theory do a better job of picking up the wireless signal from the Bright box with an onward Ethernet connection to the desktop. But are these two pieces compatible with one another? It seems to be £63.50 from http://www.serversdirect.co.uk/Vigor_AP-700_Wireless...
Option 1 will certainly be OK but is twice the price of option 2. If you were in my shoes, what we you opt for?
Advice, observations and other viable options would be most welcomed.
