How can i get internet in my bedroom?
I still live with my mom and i run a ethernet cable all the way through the house from the office into my room. How can i get rid of the cable and still have a good connection?
if it is a house, running a cable over the ceiling is a quick and easy solution.
If you lied in your initial post and your mom rent an apartment, just fasten the cable with either clips or place a cable tray along the ceiling.
If you decide to put an access point in your room so you get wifi, fine but if "all the way" is further than 20m, I wouldn't depend on wireless all the way.
If you are both retarded, lazy and hate money, use a powerline adapter.
Don't listen to all posts above
Unless you're an EPIC GAMER XD with RAZER GEAR and GAMER FOOD and GUNNARZ, 100ms of latency won't make a difference. Just buy a router, buy a network card and fucking enjoy not being the most aspergers cunt in town using ethernet in 2016.
lol fuck off, just because you're shit at the games and can't notice it doesn't mean other people are as bad as you. If you just wanna use it to navigate the net and do your shit then go on, but don't pollute online games with your shitty WiFi.
What this guy said
I use one to get connectivity to my NAS down in the basement. Works perfectly.
Literally have the same PowerLine and drops connection randomly every few hours. Did I get a defective product or is my isp shit? Suppose to be getting 30mbps but drops to 25 on powerline
I'm surprised no one's mentioned wi-fi repeaters yet.
Get on of these powerline adapters
Whats wrong with the cable? does it looks ugly?
Use those to hold it in place, hide it below the carpet
if thats not enough use corner ducts and cord channels
>or use gaming consoles that rely on 2.4 GHz bands for extra fail from crowded channels
I would never stoop to wifi for gaming due to the need of reliable packet sending and receiving.
You can get really thin ehternet cable, its worked well for me!
>How can i get internet in my bedroom?
Run wire in a better way.
If your house has a basement, or crawlspace, you can use it. If not, an attic run may work.
Or if you have conduit that runs conveniently.
Last resort is along the outside of the house.
Failing that, WiFi and PLNA.
I use a wifi repeater for my parents' room and it works great for their needs. They don't care about latency, they only browse the internet every now and again. It cuts the speed in half, though which is to be expected.
Holy shit, I am so glad I looked at this thread, I never heard of such a thing.
For about 4 years now I've been using my current solution to get internet when my room is a floor above the router. I took my old linksys router and turned it into a wireless access point which I connect my PC into. It gets me internet at reasonable speeds, but often times goes super slow and once in a blue moon cuts out. My speeds range from 10.4mbps down on its best days, about 20% of the time, all the way down to 2.4mpbs down and lower on its bad days, 30% of the the time.
I am ordering one right now, for only $30 I don't have much to lose. Thanks.
