    Hi Folks. My problem is how to pick the right Powerline Adaptor if at all. My Router is provided by Plusnet and is a Sagecom model 2704N, which is installed at a point at the front of the house. Wifi coverage in the house is adequate but I would like to extend it to a metal clad shed at the end of my rear garden, approximately 30M distant from the rear of the house. The shed has a 30 Amp ring main, supplied from a fuse box that is not the same box as the rest of the house i.e. the mains supply splits after the meter into two separate boxes. My questions are:

    1. Will a powerline adaptor work in these circumstances?
    2. If it would then which of the many makes/models available would be adequate?

    My default is to run a cable from the Router out to the shed unless someone has an easier solution.

    Powerline most likely won't work. Probably need wifi between the buildings then Ethernet from the wifi into the shed.
