simple
you torrent, stream and do anything to suck just waste data and make it impossible for anyone to get on wifi
then when the bill is fucking outragous just be like "someone hacked our wifi and is stealing all our jiggabits, they must be pros but if we use ethernet we can stop them"
>>
>>52570529
No, just add and remove everyone else's MAC address to the block list periodically every day.

>someone's messing with our WiFi

Either that or tell her The Doctors recently did a piece on how WiFi causes autism and gluten

Can't you pass the cable on the outside of the house?
>>
>>52569944
How old are you? If you are over 18 and not disabled.... Literally go fuck yourself. How DARE you think your mother is mean for not wanting a fucking cord running up the stairs. Put your computer downstairs by the router.

>>52570113
They never have in my experience. Just do it, man. It's non-intrusive and it works just as fast as a regular ethernet cable.
>>
Buy a better router maybe?
Its not like youre paying rent you little boy.

Run fiber under the carpet along the baseboard and connect each end to either a media converter or an Ethernet switch that accepts fiber.

Or you could just improve the signal in the house.

>>
>>52571081
the tech is there, but there are so many variables in what speeds you will get.
I only ended up getting 10mbit between two floors

Proper wifi ain't so bad, it's come a long way and AC wifi is decent for what it is.

I would say buy a high(er) end router, but chances are OP can't afford it on his underage allowance.

I have the adapters laying around, I made sure to buy the 200/500mbit models at the time.

I blame mostly the older house I live in, so it is what it is.

if you need cables going into every room, and it's a house that has a full basement, rather than just a partial basement, then that would mean you need only drill a single hole through each floor., and you can just clip the cables to the ceiling.
>>
>>52569944
I'm only going to answer this because double dubs.

Run the cable out the window and plug into your neighbor's router, dumbass. Problem solved.

I'm im the exact same situation as OP, but I already have a TP-Link powerline. It sucks however, loses connection like every 2 hrs, and it wont come back till I unplug it and plug it in or wait for about 5 mins.

the question is : should I buy another powerline? will this fix the issue? if so, which?

>inb4 underage , move out

rents are fucking expensive here. I hope I can in one year

>everybody recommending PowerLine adapters ITT
No, if you use cable TV then get MoCA adapters and you should get line speed Internet and wired latency without the variability of PowerLine adapters.

Just be sure to buy a moca filter so the signal doesn't leave the household. It costs like seven bucks and will prevent your neighborhood from joining your moca network.

This needs a really big caution sign though.

What this anon is saying could be true, if your house is wired parallel-wise. If most electronics in your house are wired in a serial fashion, like my pre-WWII shit housing, powerline ethernet will get you worse speeds than wi-fi because of signal interference.

This can theoretically work, but in practice its shit unless there is no power being consumed/any interference on the lines.
>>
>>52579431
This
>>
>>52579626
It's literally only a problem if you have old shitty electronics that are not properly EMC shielded and emit fucktons of interference down the power lines.
Old washing machines are dryers are the perfect example, sometimes even microwaves.

If anything, getting bad performance with powerline adapters just gives you an indicator of the shit your PSU has to put up with, and maybe a little early warning that's it's going to die well before it should.
>>
>>52569944
Move out.
>>
>>52579726
Thats interesting, is there a way to measure interference like that at the machines or run them through something that fixes it?
>>
>>52579794
>Thats interesting, is there a way to measure interference like that at the machines
Basically put an oscilloscope on the connection between the plug and the wall socket when it's running.
Problem is it's very difficult to filter out any noise already on the lines from other stuff, so you'd need to do a before and after and see the difference.

>or run them through something that fixes it?
Ferrite beads can help to some degree, but can also make things worse if you don't know what you're doing.

In some ways the best thing to do is just isolate problem devices from the main lines, using a UPS or whatever.
