I am looking to purchase a new router for my house. Currently I am using the Super Hub 2 from Virgin Media, however, I am wanting to purchase a new router so as I can use WakeLAN in order to wake my PC at home from work.
Unfortunatly our SH2 is installed downstairs and I am wanting to purchase the new router, install the router upstairs, and run the SH2 in modem mode so as it acts as the cable modem which feeds the internet access to the new router.
I really want to run Ethernet cable upstairs somehow to connect the SH2 with the new router. However, because my parents won't want me to do this, I was considering doing it over the powerlines.
My question is this, will I loose connection quality/speed by using the Ethernet over powerline solution? or will it be okay?
The house was rewired in 1995.
Any questions quote me in your post and I will get back to you. Thanks.
