Hi, i need an info about powerlines.

I tell you my idea so you might be able to tell me if it's doable or not.

I tried with extenders to bring wireless connectivity to the other side of the house but it's instable and with a terrible speed , so i decided to use a powerline and connect an access point to it, now while this actually works, it's a solution i can't keep for many reasons.

The question is, does a powerline exists capable of acting as an access point taking the signal directly from the AC without a cable connected to it?


Your help is really appreciated.

Your description confuses me

See this product:
https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Technology-Beamforming-TL-WPA8630-KIT/dp/B076CYV2XH

Is that what you're looking for? (A powerline + WiFi extender)

I bought my father-in-law a kit like that and it worked well.

i'm looking for a powerline that can act as an access point, i don't need an extender, but the "normal" access point takes the signal usually from a lan cable and creates it's own wi-fi that you can customize, i need one that operates in the same way but taking the signal from AC power instead of a lan cable.

How did you implement that kit? I you made something similar to what i asked it's what i need.


Thanks

Yes, that's exactly what the linked kit does. It connects to your router via powerline, then broadcasts a WiFi signal (same network/password) from the wall unit that has the antennae. As far as I recall from visits, you can't tell whether your WiFi is being serviced by the (basement) router, or the (upstairs) powerline extender.

Here's the user guide for the linked kit:

To do this you press the WPS button or you enter the powerline and select the access point operating mode from the GUI?
