      homeplugs / router channels

      HI
      I am thinking of buying a couple of homeplugs to get over poor signal problem.Does anyone make a wireless version or is that asking for trouble ?.
      Can anyone recomend a good make.
      ROUTER CHANNELS
      Is there specific channels better than others or is it a case of going through them one at a time to find the best signal?.
      many thanks and happy christmas

      Wireless Powerline/Homeplug is fairly commom. Typical is PowerLine Wall-Plugged Range Extender - WGXB102 and also Solwise PL-85PEW_MK2 85Mbps Ethernet Home Plug/54Mbps Wireless Extender

      The 'best' channel for your Router Wifi depends upon local conditions (ie are other Wifi routers etc working close by) and you need to try every channel between 1 and 12. Changing by just a single channel number can have a massive effect.
