Installing Internet/TV Outlet In My Room

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm currently using a D-Link Xtreme N Desktop Wireless Adapter
http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=531
and I'm extremely frustrated with the unstable connection.
I constantly lose connection causing me to have 4-5 seconds of lag spiking in games. However my ping does not fluctuate.

I'm also not sure whether its my adapter or the router that's causing this issue.

To try and fix the problem I wanted to install one of these outlets shown below into a wall in my room

Is it possible to install it anywhere I want?
If not what are the limitations?

That thar would be an Rg6 outlet (threaded coax, often found in UK cable and satellite conns; basically it is the female conn to your BB provider.
Most common (I would think) would be to then ethernet out - via router - to female sockets/faceplates in rooms where iNet is needed.

Does that help? cos cabling out from there with RG6 will be more expensive and no advantage.

You could look up Powerline networking might help with stablity but I don't remember how well it did in bandwidth. Note don't have a GFI outlet on the Breaker if your planning on doing this.

I'm sorry.
I have no idea what you've wrote lol.
What's this about female connections and BB providers?

I just looked into powerline networking.
It seems a bit expensive and doesn't have support for the amount of bandwidth my internet provider has.

I was thinking of getting my internet service provider to come and install one of those outlets into my wall, but is there a restriction as to where it can be installed?
I was thinking of something like this installed into my room.

*I don't really understand the mechanics behind installing an outlet*

Powerline networking will do 200 Mb/s, really doubt you have that much bandwidth.

Also, if you have a phone jack in your room just check to see if they used Cat5e to wire it up. I just moved into a new house this weekend and sure enough the phone lines were wired with Cat5e, so I was able to just through a cat5 plate on and terminate it in the garage.

:/
Where would the source be?
I remember my internet service provider sent a technician to come to my house and installed the HDPVR etc when I moved houses.
He installed one of those outlets in another room but I think he "split" the connection from my parents room.
Is there no other way? :O

If not are there any recommendations for what I should do to get a stable connection?"

Seeing that you have recieved 1.7 billion packets, you probably don't restart your computer much. You are using wireless n with full signal strength and you said your ping doesn't fluctuate so I would recommend looking into your computer to make sure something else isn't causing the lag. Also, 300mb/s isn't the speed of your internet, it is the speed of your internal lan so if you went from 300mb/s to 200mb/s, you wouldn't notice a difference. But again, I would look at the rest of your computer first, most likely software.
