Isn't this one of those devices that turns the electrical wiring into an ethernet connection?

Power line

u/Bender44410 · 3 pointsr/shittybattlestations

Buy some of these I have a set that is similar and they work wonders in wifi deadzones.

u/InsaneAss · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Or just ditch the wireless and go with something like this (amazon link)

Get something like this :

It uses the electrical in your house to send the signal through into the basement. Bam. Direct Ethernet connection without drilling a hole through the ceiling of the basement.

Just FYI, someone above you posted how to set an ethernet connection to metered in Win 10: Also, have you ever looked into a Powerline solution? These allow you to run ethernet through the electrical lines in the house.

Generally, if you can buy the cable at a retail store it will work fine. Cat 5 issues come up when people make very long cables from a spool, or run a bundle of them together. That being said, I would just buy whatever is readily available at the time.

This powerline adapter is also a viable option.

I had a friend who gushes about how awesome the 'power line as ethernet' works. Might be perfect for your situation. I've never used myself.

u/JeffGoldblum64 · 1 pointr/videos

If you think your house has good electrical grounding, you can give these a shot.

I've never used them before, but I know someone who worked and lived at a hotel and from the third floor to the front desk downstairs he was able to run an ethernet connection this way.

I wouldn't expect any miracles from this, however. It's pretty reasonable to assume that this could be easily really, really shitty. Hell, if it had worst latency than your wifi, it wouldn't surprise me either.

Link above is what he was talking about in terms of ethernet over power. There are other models then this. I wouldn't buy netgear for my mother-in-law so please look at the other options.

You could always get a stronger router and try and penetrate the ceiling/floor some more. Have you thought about purchasing a repeater of sorts and doing it that way?

I personally love the RB951 from Mikrotik. Cheap...and you can turn it into your router...if that doesn't work you can put your old router back in place, and turn the RB951 into a repeater persay...Wireless in, and ethernet out.

All in all I wish you luck on your endeavor here.

u/koalaberries · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I use these and they work great.

u/CSLahain · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

Exactly what I was going to say.

really really recommend.

u/OnPageAdam · 1 pointr/techsupport

So why isn't it hardwired? Even if it's far away from an ethernet jack, you can still use these kinds of things. As long as you don't plug them into anything surge protector-y you should be good to go.

u/LouDiamond · 1 pointr/windows7

right now, they're both wired via a couple of Powerline adapters. They scream via the internet - download speeds well over 1 mbps, but computer to computer, they just blow.

u/HelloMcFly · 1 pointr/gaming

If you want a stable, fast connection get a powerline adapter. It'll act like a wired connection. This may not work if your house is very old.

u/rick_was_banned · 1 pointr/SantaMaria

Maybe this would be adequate for your situation? It says upto 200 mbps, so even at half that speed you're golden.
