Ethernet over mains working

Following on from my earlier ethernet over mains post I have now purchased enough ethernet over mains bricks to from two separate networks one for each fuse box and each network now claims 85Mbits/sec. So currently I have:

Sun Ray <~~~ Ethernet over Mains ~~~\\
                                     > HUB <~~~ Ethernet over Mains ~~~\\
Sun Ray <--- Cat 5 Cable -----------/                                    > Switch --- Server
Sun Ray <--- Cat 5 Cable -----------------------------------------------/1

Which is less than ideal as the picture frame Sun Ray is connected via two Ethernet over mains hops and one of those is shared with another Sun Ray however until the rest of the house moves are done it works. At that point the switch will live where the Hub currnetly is so no Sun Ray will be more than one “mains hop” away from the server. The picture in the frame refreshes in about 2 seconds which is o.k and it is not loosing the connection to the Sun Ray server, which means it has returned to being a practical solution.

The ethernet over mains bricks coped much worse when there was one on one fuse box and two on the other compared to when there were just two bricks one on each fuse box.


1If ascii art is good enough ascii art will do. The answer is invariably wanted as fast as possible, pretty does not make it more right.

Unless you are an Apple fan then pretty is always right :D Happy Xmas
