When I upgraded our internet to Fibre(well to the cabinet) I thought all those slow days would end - surprise surprise NO!:'(
As you have to have the router connected to the main phone socket which is situated near the front door, a trifle inconvenient as the PC is 2 rooms away and not wishing to have the floor up I thought(foolishly) 'Why not get network over power gizmos'
A few pounds later had same device and worked straight out of the box, giving speeds of 50mbs, lovely.
When the wife goes on the PC, she says its not working, 'What have you done now'
On checking it has lost it's connection to the master socket, many hours of web searching(when it allowed) showed I was not alone but alas very few answers to the problem :mad:

So the answer seems to be to run a cable, maybe when I feel like all the trauma of lifting carpets then floor boards etc

The fix to keep connected is to run a command window and continually ping the router - this appears to work with no loss of speed.
