I have however used those powerline things to get the network to another place then a simple ROUTER AS A WAP (google that!) at the location that needs it.
At no time will I ever field or suggest an extender.
I've recently purchased a TP Link TL-WA830RE wireless range extender and set it up with my BT HomeHub (version 2). It took me a while, but now they are working well together. My problem is, that when my iPad is connected to the network via the range extender, I can no longer access it's airplay features to send things to my apple TV.
The network is set up as follows:
Main router = BTHomeHub 2 (DHCP)
Wireless repeater = TP Link TL-WA830RE (static IP)
iMac (Lion - all updated) connected to BT HomeHub via ethernet
Apple TV (V2 - software up to date) connected using ethernet to BT HomeHub via TP Link AV200 Powerline adapters
iPads/iPhones etc connect to TP Link Wireless range extender, which connects wirelessly to the BT HomeHub.
If I disconnect the AppleTV from the ethernet and put it on the range extender wireless, then my Airplay works again, but AppleTV can't see iTunes on the iMac. It appears as if the two networks are separate and things only talk to each other if they are on either the HomeHub or the TPLink, but not some of each (which is what I need!)
Can anyone suggest anything I can try to resolve this issue?
