Powerline Networking

If Only

I wish the effect complained of did, in fact, happen.

I have expensive BT infinity in the house but low speed PlusNet in my garage office about 70 yards away.

Ideally I'd get rid of the PlusNet using PowerLine networking to connect the house router to the garage - saving money and getting better bandwidth into the bargain - but the presence of a consumer unit in the house and another in the garage in the mains distribution circuits prevents the signals getting through. Attenuation is so high the router can't be seen in the garage.

And the wife won't let me run a CAT5 cable... (because of the mess, holes in the walls etc)
