Hi All, hoping someone can help. I’ve currently got my internet supplier’s router set in modem mode in the downstairs lounge which sends the internet (via a homeplug) to a router in the centre of the house. I now have much better wifi signal throughout the house. All of my devices (including my NAS) are plugged directly into this router in the centre of the house, but the WDTV unit needs to be in the lounge downstairs where my tv is.
Currently my WDTV has an Ethernet cable attaching to a home plug which i’d hoped would somehow communicate with the router upstairs via the homeplug. Anyway, it doesn’t and as a result i’m left with no network connection or connection to my NAS and i’m not quite sure what I need to do to attach to the router via a homeplug?
I’ve taken the WDTV to the room with the router in and attached it directly to the router - my NAS shows up and I can stream movies. Take it downstairs to the tv and plug into the homeplug and nothing. No sign of any network and i wouldn’t know where to start with manual settings.
Its a Linksys router ea6900. I can attach via wifi to the wdtv but the streaming is choppy.
Is there a workaround or anything anyone can suggest?
