Chris Hughes – music producer
Chris is a well-known professional musician living in Wiltshire having problems with shared broadband.
He lives in a large manor house and wanted to ensure that his family had internet access in all their rooms.
The manor’s walls are very thick and we could not use a single access point to cover the whole building.
At first we tried using HomePlug adaptors which utilise the household wiring as the network. This didn’t work because we found that there were several generations of wiring in the house. Eventually we hit on the idea of running Cat 5 cable outside the house to rooms in strategic positions where we positioned wireless access points that worked all the way up through the floors of the house.
