Wifi keeps dropping, Powerline an option?

Post by vgolle » Mon May 16, 2016 5:41 pm

Hi, I just set up a TP-LINK TL-MR3020 and it connects via wifi. Unfortunately, the signal will go inactive after about six hours. My PC network adapter does the same thing but every couple of days, so I believe its a Verizon Quantum router issue that I have tried for months to figure out. Anyway, because the Meteobridge is in a different room than the router, I was wondering if anyone has successfully employed a Powerline kit (such as TP-LINK TL-PA4026 KIT AV500 2-port Powerline Starter Kit, Up to 500Mbps), so I can basically use ethernet cables to get the Meteobridge online continuously. Thank you.

Hello

Never tried powerline with the Meteobridge but using powerline with other equipment and that is working very fine so I guess it should work.

Sometimes the power-outlets need so be on the same phase.

I don't see why power line should not do the trick.
Power line might add to the general RF noise floor,
but this is mostly not a problem in the 800-900 MHz band
the Meteostick is receiving on.
