Happy Birthday to me 🎂 Since switching to an unlimited Broadband provider at the beginning of this year; And having found out; Jeremy Clarkson, Hammond & May have new show coming exclusively Amazon TV with five times the budget they had at the BBC 💰 i decided id treat myself to an Amazon Fire TV Box along with a NetGear 1200MBps wired LAN connection network which doesn't extend wifi signal or transmit wireless, no it's better than that; 😉 sends data via the existing 240V copper power cables that provide power to sockets within the home, This saves routing an RJ45 Cat5, Cat6, or cat7 cable from the router to the TV or around the house. Both the Amazon Fire TV Box & stick have built in WiFi connection but i currently have 7 WIFi devices on the wireless network, and want to maximize streaming hence giving the Amazon Fire box it's own high speed channel on the wired LAN🎢 The beauty of the NetGear Powerline 1200 is each unit is both sender & reciever there both identical So if like me; you purchase two sets; This means you plug one in on the router and you then have three network sockets for around the home. Up to a total of 16 Powerline 1200 sockets can be connected on any one network. The adaptor also has a lock button enabling multiple networks to be created within the home. By plugging in some adaptors and pressing the lock button, They will then ignore communication with any additional adaptors plugged in there after. The network speed within the home will be 1200MBps via copper power in sockets and RJ45 LAN, the only limiting factor will be the speed coming in to the router in the home. I've recently discovered also that Cat5 cable is outdated😯 it's capable of transfer speeds between 100Mbs & 1000Mbs the new versions are Cat6 and Cat7, they still have exactly the same RJ45 connection and are fully backward compatable, Difference is the cables are thicker core and better shielded capable of higher transfer speeds between devices, CAT6 is apparently good for between 1000MBps (1Gigabit) & 10000MBps where Cat7 is designed specifically for 10000MBps (10 Gigabit) Networks I've measured up all locations and purchased specific length Cat6e cables from this supplier: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/MAXBITT-ELECTRONICS?_trksid=p2047675.l2563 Tidy little 0.5M Cat6e cable connecting Router to Poweline 1200 adaptor👍 no excess clutter. Anyway all said; I'm interested to hear from people regarding the Amazon Fire TV Box or stick aswell as create awarness of topgear crew still doing what they do best on an alternative channel with five times more money.
