      Access Point suggestions

      Hi,

      I have just moved house and had Sky BB installed and have it working perfectly from the main BT socket in the house which is in my lounge. Unfortunatly, my main PC will be in my office which is upstairs and doesnt have a BT socket in. If it was just the PC i would just buy a USB wireless adapter and use that, but i need to plug in an IP phone as well.

      I can only think of buying a wireless Access Point with an ethernet port or 4 port switch built in to it and use that in the office.

      Can anyone think of any other solutions, or if not, is anyone using an access point like this and suggest one that fits the bill.

      Thanks is advance of any help.

      Re: Access Point suggestions

      Homeplugs with an attached 4 port switch is probably your best bet. Don't waste your time with wireless.

      Yup homeplug and switch would be the best bet.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      Homeplug is always better than Wireless.
