Power line network extension recommendations?
What are some great power line network extenders out there?
I’ve already been told by the tech that came out and ran a new line, that the spectrum pods are not a great option, not recommended, but also highly agreed that a power line extensions are the way to go, that being said:
My current one, a Tenda PH10, works best connected to the router via wps; evidently, that’s a major security flaw. However, not copying the network settings and so on, It does not get even close to what the router is putting out; even if both ends of the range extenders are plugged into the same wall, same room, maybe 5 feet apart. There’s about a 40mbps drop in download speed plugged in across the house, but, with a max of about 90mbps all in the same room as the router. I have the gig plan currently.
Power line extenders are supposed to bring the connection to another room, technically hardwired if both outlets are on the same current, and puts it out wirelessly; as if the router is in that same room too; which, proved to be true with my last isp, and wps capable router. Not only that, this one can copy the network/s name and password and simply just double the range; that way I’m not having to switch between two of the same networks. But spectrums WiFi 6 router does not accommodate for this connectivity option.
I’m currently trying different ways of doing initial set ups, to connect my power line extensions to the router, and seeing if there’s any significant improvement.
