I have a network of security IP cameras around my property and each is connected either directly to a Solwise Homeplug or several cameras connected together and indirectly via a ethernet network LAN hub that then goes into the homeplug. They're the latest Solwise plugs. I obviously have another homeplug at my router end and this enables me to view the output of my cameras whilst away from base when everything woks - and it also enables FTP for pictures where the image has been "disturbed".
On a pretty regular basis the remote homeplugs seem to disconnect and refuse to remarry. So the only camera left operating is the single camera connected directly to the broadband router. To save the obvious suggestion, I cannot physically connect the remote cameras to the router via a cable and fully recognise that this would be the most robust option. The problem is I think mains cable distance or inherrent homeplug instability as the camera is connected directly into the hub and the hub directly into the homeplug which is directly on a wall scocket.
So my question is what options do I have to make my network more robust and reliable? Can I connect the LAN hub and router via a pair of second homeplugs that have been married seperately ie providing two channels at the same time? Can I also try and connect the hub wirelessly to the router providing a second or third way in?
Any suggestions really appreciated.
