you really pointed me to a very good thing... power line home plug adapter.. they;re very good hardware.. so far i am able to get the same speed as by using Ethernet cable... one thing is ping is different ... no effect reliability much i guess..
If your ping is the one in the speedtest.net screenshot mate I'd be very happy with that. 12ms is a very decent ping time.

I am also interested in how the power line adapter works... and how the electrical noise in the mains does not effect the signal.. lots to be figured out.. we're lucky it works and gets the burden of running the Ethernet cable away...

PoE (Power over Ethernet).

Quote:
Power over Ethernet or PoE describes any of several standardized or ad-hoc systems which pass electrical power along with data on Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electrical power to devices such as wireless access points or IP cameras. Unlike standards such as Universal Serial Bus which also power devices over the data cables, PoE allows long cable lengths. Power may be carried on the same conductors as the data, or it may be carried on dedicated conductors in the same cable.
There are several common techniques for transmitting power over Ethernet cabling; two of them have been standardized by IEEE 802.3. Since only two of the four pairs are needed for 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX, power may be transmitted on the unused conductors of a cable. In the IEEE standards, this is referred to as Alternative B. Power may be transmitted on the data conductors by applying a common-mode voltage to each pair. Because Ethernet uses differential signalling, this does not interfere with data transmission. The common mode voltage is easily extracted using the center tap of the standard Ethernet pulse transformer. This is similar to the phantom power technique commonly used for powering audio microphones. In the IEEE standards, this is referred to as Alternative A.
In addition to standardizing existing practice for spare-pair and common-mode data pair power transmission, the IEEE PoE standards provide for signalling between the power source equipment (PSE) and powered device (PD). This signaling allows the presence of a conformant device to be detected by the power source, and allows the device and source to negotiate the amount of power required or available. Up to 25 watts is available for a device, depending on the version of the standard in use.

What is the broad cast range when you are using your building wiring.
Example: When sending a command from your PC to the remote printer through the buildings wiring how far does that signal travel out side the wiring. Can someone 100ft away let say pick up that signal.
Otherwise is your wiring inside the building just become a giant transmitting antenna?
some power line adapter has wireless capabilities ,

Boozad PoE and Power line network is two different things do NOT mix these two thing

I don't know, I already said that. Please enlighten us.

But it stands to reason if you can pass power along an ethernet line as the ethernet signal isn't affected by mains power, then you can do the opposite which in a basic way answers the original question.

I know this problem has already been solved, but upgrading to a good Wireless N card will allow you to probably get speeds of 60Mbps. I put an Intel dual band N card in my laptop and I get my full speed of 55Mbps wirelessly. It was an Intel card, 2.4 and 5GHz wireless N for $5 and change. Glad you got your issue worked out though.

I have just bought Power-line 200 Home Network Adapters from on networks , they are the best solution, it's better than upgrading my wireless card to N-network
after installing them i tested the speed using speedtest.net and internet-speedtest.net. Now i am able to get around 60Mbs and upload nearly 3Mbs.
i was at PC world this morning and the guy who is in the store advised me to use particularly this type (Power-line 200 Home Network Adapters from on networks) as he has been using them at home and giving him good internet speed and the price was cheap 20...
so even if i upgraded my wireless net work card, i am sure i will not be able to get this speed using power line home adapters...
results for the speed tests attached
Hi nuflia,

Its great to hear that these power line adapters worked great for you. I am sure hardwired plugs would provide better speed and reliability than wireless cards.

If you have any queries in future feel free to reply to us.

Thanks Sandeep,
so far so good.. just one thing I noticed , the hardwired plugs may get affected by noise.. as if they're plugged in a socket near other socket already used for other devices such as computer power charger ...

Hi nuflia,

Kindly elaborate the issue so we can understand it better. Is the system making abnormal noise when hardwired plugs are connected.

Kindly provide us more information so we can try our best to get this issue resolved to your satisfaction.
