Larger homes or buildings can have a problem getting the wifi or ethernet to reach, upstairs, downstairs, around corners, into a purpose built office in the garage. There has been a couple of solutions around now for a very long time, but all of them have a high potential for problems. One of them is the range extender devices which seem to cause people the most grief, ok when running well but dropouts and lost connections are common. Another solution that has been around since the year 2000 is power over ethernet (POE). A common problem with these devices was they were not very well made and white noise over the power lines caused frequent dropouts or lost connections.
A new model POE from TP Link, the AV1200, claims to have resolved the noise issues and deliver blistering speed – dependant on your existing connection speeds. For the technically minded or sparkys here are some interesting specs.
