      An Easy Alternative to Wires and Wireless?

      These forums have been really useful to me in negotiating the transfer from Orange to Sky. While things are mostly sorted now I remain unimpressed with the wireless capability of the Sky/Netgear router. (How much time can one justify wandering around trying to improve a signal from "very low" to "low"?). The wireless performance of my previous router (2Wire) was much better and managed to send a strong signal into the far corners of the house without making any fuss.

      So wireless seemed hopeless but I didn't want lots of ethernet wiring so I took a chance and purchased a Devolo DLan Kit. Just plugged it in and it worked at 85 MBPS - amazing. (I haven't yet implemented the security features so can't say if this will be as easy).

      A bit pricey but just think of the time saved not having to search out weedy wireless signals!

      Hope this is helpful to others and thanks again.
