Ethernet Over Power Lines

Recommended Posts

Whatever the transmission media, it only effects the speed of data transfer from point to point. Its how the network is set out that effects congestion more than anything. So yes a network using ethernet over powerline can become congested.

Its a long time since I had to do any research papers but I would suggest researching network topology, star, circle and mesh networks to understand what causes congestion and how it can be mitigated.

This paper is specifically on Ethernet over Power lines so thats what I am digging for. Thanks for your answer. I am going to assume that the same congestion problems can occur with this type of network as any. :)

Yes that's correct, too few connections / alternative rotes / redundancy for the given traffic will cause queuing and congestion, whatever the network.

      I use a windows 7 Home Premiun and I would create a virtual network using the microsoft loopback adapter. I already create this network but when I enable it I got an error message "unidentify network " my question is how to fix this problem ....help please....

      I'm not too knowledgeable about networking and routers. Pretty much all I know is how to set up a router to create a wireless network, and that's all I've been using it for currently. I like playing games online (most notably League of Legends), and living with a big family on an 'ok' internet connection just won't cut it. For example, I'll start playing a game, and then someone else will start watching Netflix, making my game virtually unplayable.
      A friend mentioned about using router firmware to create a stable ping. He didn't really know much on the topic, but it sparked my curiosity. Is this even possible? And if so, will it have any negative effects to other users on the network. (Essentially, can I play my game on a playable ping without being an internet hog?)
      League of Legends Support led me to something about QoS, but as I read further into the article it seems it's about prioritizing bandwidth? (Again, I don't want to be an internet hog)
      Any insight into this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      When I try to login to my router at 192.168.1.1 it accepts my username and password but just displays the message " (192.168.1.2) is managing this device " with a blank white screen, nothing else is visible. Is there anyway to fix this? I can't access my router control panel because of this.

      I'm in the market for a good WIFI router/switch/repeater. Looking for something with at least 5 1Gig ports and the ability to repeat/extend the signal to another Access Point which is up stairs so i don't need to run wired Ethernet to the other side of the house.
      Looking online, This Western Digital N900 looks nice however it doesn't appear to have the repeater functionality.
      Anyone buy anything recently which is working out well? Or got a tip on something out there?
      Thnx

      I am looking to back up and possibly actively mirror a folder across multiple computers in a network. I have a test folder that will work for testing, but the files in this folder will be edited and saved on multiple computers in the same day a small garage fire in the spring destroy most everything that was active so in the network will have computers in the garage, shop, and house, along with a network drive in the house.
      test files will be from the electric sheep program, and on 2 computers and a network drive another computer or network drive needs to be set up as a time machine backup in case a file gets accidentally deleted or saved wrongfully. "C:ProgramDataElectricSheepcontent" "\WDMYCLOUDSmartWareElectric Sheep" "\FRED-505ElectricSheepContent"
      A 4th location can be kept for a time machine backup of which I also do not know how to do.
      Windows 7/8 are my primary OS's
