So long story short, I'm moving out of my rental in a weeks time and moving in with the in-laws for a indeterminate period of time (likely till mid october) whilst I wait for my shiny new house to be built (which has network cabling throughout it)
Whilst living with them we've got my partners old bedroom and her brothers old bedroom which we will use as a living area (couch & TV etc).
In that room, I'm looking to plug in my nice new shiny smart TV, NAS and NUC so as to deliver content around the house. However obviously where the router is for the ADSL is at a separate end of the house to where we are.
The main constraint, is I'm not allowed to replace their Spark HG630b with my Fritz 7490 so the question is how do we extend the network down to that end of the house. I also appreciate that without getting hands dirty and testing extensively the limitation on the best configuration is challenging.
There is little in the way of interference from other WIFI networks as the house as at the top of Park Rd in Belmont, so the nearest neighbor's house is physically 40 meters away.
So from this I have two options as I see it.
Option 1 - The inexpensive option
Use the FritzBox as a WIFI extender and switch, picking up the WIFI in the bedroom and having network cabling run to the NAS, NUC and TV. The con with this is that a lot of data will be flowing through WIFI and passing between floors in the house.
Option 2 - The more expensive option
At my new house I'm planning on buying an Ubiquiti Edge Router for my Fibre as well as an Ubiquiti AP for delivery of WIFI around my new house.
So I could purchase both of those devices now, use the Edge Router as a pure switch in the interim and then get the connectivity into the living area via the power lines internally. A question with the Powerline side of things, if the jack points are on different circuit breakers does this mean that the ethernet over power lines will still work?
I'd appreciate some feedback or is there a better way of doing things?
