I have some doubts and would be very grateful to get any expert advice:
I live in a relatively small 2-storey house in London. I’d like to plug a Powerline adapter (or more if at all possible, this is my main doubt) to my router downstairs and then 3 extenders to the 3 rooms upstairs. The rooms are right above, one-room-after-the-other, no distance between them.
My concern is:
If I just use an adapter downstairs and 3 paired extenders for the 3 rooms upstairs, the bandwidth will be split in three, which I don’t like.
Would it be possible to get two (or three) adapters connected to different Ethernet ports on the router on different wall AC outlets, each connected to corresponding extenders upstairs?. What’s the best way to do this?
I would connect to WIFI or Ethernet upstairs. So I’d get the WIFI+Ethernet extenders with AC passthrough.
This is my hardware:
Virgin Media Hub 3.0 router with a 200Mbps (download) broadband ISP contract (Fiber broadband). This a newest router with Virgin Media, I heard it’s their flagship router.
I’m thinking of getting:
TL-WPA8630P Powerline KIT
AV1300 Gigabit Passthrough Powerline ac Wi-Fi Kit
