Powerline Wi-Fi Extender signal drops when Solar power generation spikes above 5000W.
I installed a solar solution a few months ago and am using a Powerline Wi-Fi extender in the cottage on my property approximately 30 meters from the main house.
Although slower than in the house, the connection is working fine until the solar power generation spikes over 5000W. Then the Wi-Fi speed drops to 1 or 2 Mbps or drops completely.
Any suggestions on how I can solve this problem? Some suggestions I've seen is that I need to install a relay of some sorts but since I'm not an electrician, I wouldn't know where to put it :-)
Please see my setup details below:
