When our house was renovated in 2003 Cat5e cabling was run from a "comms centre" out to all rooms with most ending in RJ45 sockets for our LAN (many cables were never connected to anything and just sit, coiled, in the back boxes). We were promised that this would "future proof" us. Unfortunately the installers did not foresee how widespread wifi was to become and we now find our system has shortcomings. Most pressing is the matter of being unable to connec my iPad and phone to the internet in a bedroom which, because it is some distance from the router, doesn't receive a wifi signal. I realise that we could set up a powerline arrangement to bring wifi to the room but I would prefer to utilise the Cat5e cabling which already runs to it. I have imagined a device which plugs into the RJ45 socket and beams out wifi. Does this exist? If so, what is it called? A second, general, point I would appreciate people's opinions on is: Am I correct in believing that taking advantage of the Cat5e cabling would always be preferable to relying on wifi for everything (PC network, printers, smart TV, etc)? Professionals we've had contact with recently (over the last few months we've had to have a new Sky box, a new TV and a new PC) pretty much all tell us to forget about our Cat5e cabling and just focus on wifi but I suspect it's just easier for them, rather than better for us. I'd feel more confident if I could quote AVForums members ... I hope I have used correct terminology and that I have explained myself OK - as you can tell, I'm not very clued up on these matters.
