Ethernet Over Power Adapters (Re: PS3-UVerse Connection Issues) ETA: IT WORKED
Posted by etm512 on 12/5 at 12:35 pm
Ever since I have had AT&T UVerse Internet installed in my house the wireless connection between it and my PS3 is unreliable and slow at best (only device in the house that has this issue). Reading some stuff online it seems that my problem is not isolated. One solution I read was to use these ethernet over power adapters in order to plug the PS3 directly into the data. Has anyone ever used these? Any advice? All help appreciated. Thanks.

I have one that DISH gave me when I got it setup. my router is upstairs and the DISH box downstairs and apparently the receiver didn't have wireless capabilities. So they plugged that thing in to the wall, and now anything that is plugged straight in to the wall will pull an IP address. That means you can't run your PS3 through a battery backup/surge protector, but it will definitely get your ps3 an internet connection.

I took it as you plug the PS3 into the adapter via an ethernet chord and the adapter into the wall. On the other end the router is plugged into the adapter and the adapter into the wall. You're saying you don't need the adapter on the receiving end?

I guess there may be some different types, but mine plugs in to the wall and you run the ethernet cable from the router to the little box plugged in to the wall. At that point, all you do is plug something directly in to the wall (any power outlet) and it receives its IP address. When I get home, I can look and see exactly what type it is that I have. Since it came with the DISH setup I didn't really pay much attention to it.

Cool. Thanks. Sounds like they might be a little different or maybe even specialized for your DISH system.

Here you go sir:

box like what I have

hmm, after reading some more, it seems the only reason this works without a 2nd box on my dish receiver is because it's built in...so yeah, looks like it's the same as your original link with needing multiple boxes apparently. my bad.

I have one for my daughters computer in her room. It was that or buy a wireless card. I had won some from a raffle or something years ago and they work fine. I haven't run a speed test on hers but its not noticeably slower than the others in the house through the eye test. The ones I have are probably 7-8 years old so I assume they have gotten better since then

I install those adapters at times for people at work.

They get terrible signal unless both of the plugs are in a dedicated outlet. That means if there are other things plugged into the outlet, the signal sucks.

Never use them on a power strip/surge protecter. Never plug them in next to anything else.

You're welcome.

I have u-verse and have the power line adapter setup. Have one adapter plugged in by the u verse router in my office and the other in my living room connected to my Xbox. It works great for me can play online and movies download fast from Netflix in HD. I found it to be faster than the wireless adapter.
