This site is ideal for reading, writing or even taking your laptop, connecting to the Internet and watching a chapter of your favorite series. But everything is ruined when you discover that the WiFi signal does not arrive in that part of your house.
This problem is also very common, so technology experts have devised a device that helps you expand your home’s Internet network using electrical wiring.
This device is called PLC (Power Line Communications) and is a device capable of sending data through the copper cables used in electrical installations. By using all the electrical infrastructure of the house, it gives you the possibility to transmit data from the main router to any part of your house that has a plug.
Using a PLC is very simple:
The first thing you need to do is listen to a PLC to the power grid and then connect it with an Ethernet cable to your home router (modem that provides you with Internet service)
Then you must connect another PLC to an outlet in the room, room, basement, terrace or garage where you want to access the Internet
Once finished with that, you must use another Ethernet cable to connect the second PLC to your laptop
And ready, you already have the Internet with a maximum connection of 200 Mbps and with a range of 300 meters away, more than enough, since the average WiFi has only a range of 50 meters.
Surely the fact that you need to connect your computer to the PLC with an Ethernet cable discouraged you, right? But do not worry, if you also want to connect your cell phone, your Tablet or some other device there is another alternative: the PLC with integrated WiFi.
In this case, the installation method is similar to the normal PLC, the only thing that varies is that you do not use another Ethernet cable. The PLC that receives the WiFi signal and uses the same network name and the same password as your main router. You just have to connect your devices as you normally do and you will notice the difference in signal strength.
