I had a Powerline and Powerline AP here getting them setup, and I finally got them working, except I ran into a glitch I was hoping someone would know about. I live in a small house, so it was hard to test them out here. So I took the AP out to my barn to see if I could get a connection. It would not connect with the powerline device. So I tried in an outside outlet on the side of the house, again no link. But I brought it inside the house, and it worked like a charm. Do these devices have a maximum distance that they can connect to each other thru the powerlines? There is an external breaker box from the main one that takes power outside the the barn, and also to the outlet. Would that cause an issue? It went thru the main breaker box, so this doesn't seem right. What are the limitations on the electrical circuit side? Does anyone have any information? I am curious as it seems like if I could get it to work, having one of these inside my metal barn would be one way for me to get wifi calling there.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
