It's totally dependent on the state of your wiring, and whether it crosses multiple ring mains etc.

Yes, I know. Interesting that it really is sub-par is all.

bear in mind that my house was totally rewired four years ago, and I'm only getting 80, not 200. That's with both ends on a single circuit too.

The 200 figure is cheaty duplex marketing, i.e. it's 100 Mb in each direction added together to make a bigger number. And it's also the theoretical maximum which excludes bitrate used on necessary overhead (think Ethernet frame headers, but for whatever encapsulation Powerline uses). So you're probably on 85-90% or so of maximum real-world speed for two plugs right next to each other, which is pretty reasonable.

Anyone have any neighbours with amusing wifi names?

This thread scares me because I can only understand about 25% of it.
Anyway, I have some kind of wireless router thingy that "runs" the iPod, iPad, DS, Wii and PSP. The PC and 360 are wired up to it. With wires.
Everything else is controlled by Cornish Piskies.

We had one in range of us called 'The Whorehouse' and I was always itching to know who it was.

When the MILF with the big tits from two doors down moved out a few months ago and the network disappeared, it all fell into place.

With the benefit of hindsight I should have popped round to ask for a cup of sugar one evening.

No idea about my neighbours, but mine is Mos Eisley Spaceport.

My network layout goes something like this:

Virgin 50mb broadband > Supplied Netgear router >
[Wired] Server/Data Storage
[Wired] PS3
[Wired] Sony BDP-570
[Wired] Netbook
[Wired] Toshiba HD-EP35
[Wireless] Wii
[Wireless] Samsung Galaxy S
[Wireless] Spare PC downstairs
Zio has wireless access to my router for his iFad and iDrone. As does my Mum's laptop and other family member's phones and Kindles.

Unlikely but Craster does live in my postcode area ;)

This, shockingly, went well. No hitches at all.

Sorry.

NAS horror stories rarely happen in the first week of ownership.

I keep getting tempted by one of those HP microservers, but then I think I have a perfectly fine Drobo doing its thing, and can I be arsed to re-setup sick-beard etc... on the new server once it turns up, instead of on the imac? Probably not...

I got a new router and had to rest my NAS because I forgot the password and needed to change the IP address.

I accidently knocked one of the drives out. Which caused the Raid to degrade. It was a long 3 hours to see if my data was still there when the raid rebuilt.


Woot it was...

Couple of my mates have had these, they are a steal after the cashback deals that are floating around. They are happy with them.

I got a netgear stora with a single 2TB drive. It's aimed at network noobs but is performing admirably so far as I'm only using it as mapped network drives for 3 computers. The web access is handy too

Does it have a built-in Torrent client? That's the best thing about my one, by far. Well, that and the Media Server bit.

Sadly no. But it's apparently trivial to gain root access and get your Linux on. A project for another day

*googles Unix commands*

Indeed, it is a piece of piss.

I've never really found a reason to, mind. The internal space is somewhat lacking, and given the devices response to power loss, I'd be reluctant to put any system stuff on the drive.

Fair enough. I was just looking to take my current 'server' out of active duty as it's burning a lot of juice to simply be running Sickbeard and Sabnzb+

Perhaps a netbook from a few generations back might be enough.

Points further up the thread to HP microserver. £120 with rebate and 30w power usage.
