Bob,
Thanks, I’m going to give it a try to extend my network from the house to the shop out back. I’d like to extend it to my hangar but it’s 15 miles away and, for sure, not on my breaker box. But if I can get my network out to my shop, I’ll be a happy camper.

I presume you have AC power in the hangar. I'm also hoping that the feeder comes off a breaker in your house. If so, you might consider a product like this: https://goo.gl/srUq55 Asoka is not the only supplier of such devices. These are power line connected cat5 transceivers. Put one in the house with a jumper to your router and the second in the hangar. I've been using these things around here for several years . . . saved me a lot of time/effort stringing wire. I've got a couple of surplus devices I could send you to experiment with. But if your hangar doesn't get ac power from the house distribution panel . . . all bets are off.

Bob,
WOW, that was easy!

I now have extended our home network to my shop using a pair of those Asoka PlugLink 9650s. Plugged one into a power socket and connected it via ethernet cable to my Airport Extreme. Plugged the other into the wall in my shop and connected it via ethernet cable to an Airport Express. Opened the Airport Utility on my MacBook Air and told it the Airport Express was an extension of the home net and it was. Whole thing didn’t take more than 2 minutes. Very Cool indeed!

Thanks muchly for this non-aviation but powerful tip.

This should work a treat for the guy who wants to go 50 feet to his hangar.

I installed the Netgear 1010 units and was equally happy with the results.

Our solar system has a similar “powerline” adapter that was just delivered and I need to plug it in…just curious is two of these adapters connected to the same power system would screw with each others communication.  I will install the SunPower adapter and report back…IF…it does not get cyber smoked?!?!?

..

Cheers!!!
