Getting BT Infinity on Thursday so hope the 0.94 meg is a thing of past on a long link to exchange so the 40 meg becomes lower tested and likely to be 18 meg.
At moment have Homehub 2 replacing with Infinity Homehub as fibre optic enabled.
BUT have a master phone socket in loft this feeds alarm data caller, hub in hall and branches out viat Cat5e Ethernet to main PC and gaming set up.
Question is how do I BEST SET up the laptop ?
Do I run an extra ethernet cable to back of lounge and plug in?
Is the wireless capability going to be good enough wireless 802 n?? never understood wireless properly.
READ up about powerline adaptors which suggests you can use the power sockets as a STEADY option plug one in near hub and one in near pc then link with ethernet cable. Suggests this is a Gigabyte link NETGEAR. Speeds again mean nothing.
ANY and ALL advice welcome. Sorry if any daft questions in there but although ok with IT in general networking baffles me.
Wanted for general internet stuff, rather than media as happy with Sky although do have a media pc that could link to plasma tv.
Thanks for ANY help.

I find that opening the lid first helps a great deal. Then power on. The rest just "happens" so to speak. It's like magic.

What I've done is hardwire me bigbox PC to the router and everything else spurs off it as wireless connections. No probs.
