I'm new here... Have some very basic questions that I know will not be answered in the forums (I've been looking!).
I currently have the following hard connected to the internet:
Sagem (Sky) Broadband Modem Router (in the lounge)
Pioneer VSX2020K Amplifier Receiver
Pioneer BDP430 Blu Ray Player
Old Computer that I use just as a server with multiple external drives for storage.
I have multiple iphones, ipads, laptops, ipods connected wirelessly to the network.
The Broad Band Wifi only covers the lounge and will not penetrate through the wall in to the rest of the house or upstairs. I have tried other wifi boxes to no avail.
The Computer is old and I want to replace this and all the drives (largest one is just 360Gb!) with new equipment that auto backs up for me.
I would like to be able to access photos, music etc from a shared storage using any of my devices.
I would like to be able to display photos & music etc. through multiple TVs
I am interested in Spotify & Netflix and may get these in the near future if I had a good set up to take advantage of them.
I have done my research on networking and understand the best way to do it is to hardwire a solution. The main house (the lounge is a rear extension) will be renovated and extended over the next couple of years and so I will move the main telephone line so that I can have a router in that part of the house. For now I intend to purchase something like this powerline networking solution:
