Powerline to switch

Hey everyone just wondering if anyone would know if I used a power line adapter from the router into another room then into a gigabit switch to my pc and a few other devices if there would be too much bandwidth loss. My roof is not an easy option to just run a cable so looking at other options first.

 

 

 

thanks in advance probably an obvious answer

Well you're going to have limited bandwidth through the powerline adapter, but if the devices on one end of it need to talk to each other that will run at full speed.

Limited of course. By how much no idea, we don't know either your connection speed or how well a powerline adapter will function with your home's wiring.

Yes you can. powerline is just a bridge, you can use anything on the other side.

Now talking about the quality, this is where powerline is a hit or miss.

If youre living in an old building with bad electrical installation, the range and signal quality may be degraded.

So if a powerline promises 300mbps, you might get only 80-100mbps with higher latency which is bad for online gaming.
