Thinking of Powerline for networking
I am now renting a room, and the house only has Internet downstairs.
W--Fi is the obvious way to go but the room is in back of the house up stairs and long way from the router so Wi-Fi might not have the range and speed.
I found the 2 Powerline adapters for $50, which is less than a good 11n router.
Looks like Powerline offers stability and speed in my situation.
Are there any other advantages of Powerline? Is it safe?
I found my Dino, can you now help me find my brain?
