Re: pull a cable from one flat to another?

Funny that I'd justify, but here goes:


The idea came, when our 2 kids asked us for a cable between flats so they could game together.


So we thought, now that we'd need a cable for this purpose anyway, why not include I-net sharing.


Considering practical difficulties it seems off the table for now; but that's a different story.
I like the idea, we were pondering it ourselves abut two years ago. We even had eachother's keys when one was away. But as it was the next house we would have had to do it by wlan, which was not optimal.

Re: pull a cable from one flat to another?

Not sure why you don't want to share a wlan. We have a terraced house. We need a wlan on each floor for a strong connection because the underfloor heating/concrete floor kills the signal. but on each floor we receive the signals from our neighbours no problem. We had an arrangement with a neighbour to use each others wlan when there were connection problems - happens here quite often during rainy weather. I'm not an IT expert but it must be possible to set this up so you do not have joint access to computers etc. I am amazed that more people do not cut costs this way.

WLAN or cable - why would it not be allowed? At the moment the providers are reaping in huge profits with separate connections when it should be the volume of traffic that determines the cost

Re: pull a cable from one flat to another?

In our previous place we shared our wireless for about a year with an elderly neighbour who only had a mobile and needed a connection for messaging.

Re: pull a cable from one flat to another?

I would do this by using:
- a wireless repeater (for example a TPLINK RE200) to grab the WLAN Signal of your neighbour
- then I would connect a Wireless router (for example a TPLINK Archer C2) to the wireless repeater over an Ethernet cable

This solution gives you a wireless connection to the network of your neighbour. By using a Wireless router behind the wireless repeater, your network will remain logically separate from the network of your neighbour. For example your neighbour will not be able to see the devices (network storage, etc.) you have connected to your own network.

Re: pull a cable from one flat to another?

Seriously??? All your buddy needs is a wifi router & if you have his password you can log in anytime.
but honestly don't go there with a neighbour, you are inviting future problems. friends turn into frenemies quickly. bet you are going to argue who used more in no time at all. Thank him for the offer & get your own stuff

My neighbor agreed to share his internet connection with me, but we want to do that via cable.....
Still, the idea of localresident is worth a thought, me thinks.
