How do i connect my computer to router WITHOUT running wires everywhere?
Ok here's the situation:
I have 1 computer downstairs connected to the router directly. My computer is the furthest room away and i want to connect to wired connection for faster internet. Is there a way of connecting my computer to router without running cables all the way to it? My internet isn't brilliantly fast but i think it could be improved by wired instead of wireless which is what it is on at the moment.
ts actually very easy. All you need is a pair of Powerline Adapters which use the electric wiring to send the LAN signals around the wires in your home. You plug 1 adapter into the mains and connect the Ethernet cable from the adapter to a spare port on your router. The other adapter, you plug into a mains socket in another room and use an Ethernet cable to connect that to the LAN port on your computer. Job done - quick wired connection, and cheap. The link below is just 1 of many examples.
