I basically want to play games online in my bedroom but the wireless router is far away so the connection is very unreliable.
I don't have any phone/ethernet "plugs"/ports nearby so:
I am considering buying a "homeplug". I have my eyes on one that has an ethernet port and an antennae for wired and wireless connectivity.
I am in the UK, using Be* 24meg broadband. We have a password protected wireless network (I doubt the last bit's relevant though).
So my question is, if I plug this homeplug in to my mains, will it instantly set up? Will I now be able to plug an ethernet cable in to it and connect to my broadband? Will a wireless network be instantly set up?
EDIT: I did a bit more research into them and found that I'll need 2 homeplugs. Is it as simple as plugging an ethernet cable from my router into the homeplug and the homeplug into a power socket, and then plugging another homeplug into a power socket and an ethernet cable from that to my computer?
