I am planning on setting up a home network when moving into a new apartment. After much bad experience with wireless networks, I was going to go with a wired connection (with cat5's snaking through to the rooms).
However, I have recently come across
power socket networks which work by modulating the network traffic using the electrical power (that comes out of power sockets) as the carrier signal. The inner geek wants to jump ship, but for practical reasons I am doing due diligence.
Has anyone set up such a power socket network before; and if so:
- What particular equipment would you recommend (manufacturer & model)?
And what was the cost to set up (inclduign the hidden ones)?
- What was its performance as compared to a wired network (packet loss and other speed and reliability related yardsticks)
- Would you recommend the switch to power socket networks?
