An interesting piece on Premitel looks at the thorny issue of using wifi in your garden office when there is a wireless router in the main home but the signal is not strong enough to reach the shedworking space. Essentially, they suggest HomePlug: "In recent years HomePlug devices have increased the speed and range over which they operate so that they can support data intensive services such as video streaming and gaming. They can also operate over mains electrical systems that have more than a single phase. Homeplug will never be able to beat the speed or security of a direct cable connection or the convenience of a standard wireless connection. However, in home or office premises where there are wireless coverage black-spots and installing cabling would be too expensive HomePlug should be considered as a viable and cost-effective alternative." The details are not too appallingly technical so it's well worth nipping along for more information if this is a problem you're facing. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Dunster House , the leading UK company for Log Cabins and Garden Offices sponsors Fridays posts
