Home Network update…

Well I finally moved the TeraStation, the UPS for it, and the Devolo LAN-over-powerline unit into the attic.  The response on the ground floor is a bit on the slow side, but once I start a program, after a few seconds delay, the streaming seems fine in Media Centre.

I’ve got a Netgear GS116 16-port Gb switch ready to go into the attic, but I’m still waiting on Cat 6 cable to arrive.  Once it does, I’ll hardwire the two PCs, the XBox and the IP phone upstairs into the switch – easily done by dropping cables through the roof through ducts.  I’m still not too sure how I’ll get cable runs into the downstairs rooms without major spousal objection.

Still, onward and downwards…
