The apartment and worship area are at opposite ends of the building and both are such a long distance that wifi just doesn't reach which really cramps range and quality. So to simplify things as well as to keep the wifi dynamic as things change in the building I am interested in extending the network via powerline.
I was just browsing prices on new Netgear routers and found this- http://www.amazon.co...ASIN=B004LB5AM2
The thing is that the building is 90 years old, so there is probably a weird circuit somewhere (knowing my history of bugs, i'll probably find them) How reliable is powerline? And can I just plug it in on any circuit and will it make it to the rest of the building? Or do all powerline connections have to be on the same/nearby circuits?
Projected PowerLine map of the wifi AP's-
Apartment N300 (Channel 6 N) PL
PL Master/library N300 (Auto channel, Ch1 preferred N) -> Office N300 (Ch. 6 N) -> Worship N300 (Channel 11 N) PL
Right now, the Master and Office are connected via Ethernet, I'm looking to use the PL like an Ethernet cable to extend the wifi network.
The channel overlap 1,6,11 is following Netgear's guide for making a seamless wifi network where the Computer/device can go from one end to the other without loosing connectivity.
