What workarounds can provide Internet, via tethering, from a wired router to a Windows 7 laptop in another room? I’d like to avoid running a cable from room to room outside.

    hi. Please tell is there a workaround to use concealed cables in order to tether internet from wired router to windows 7 laptop in another room , instead of external cable to plug onto the respective ports to tether?

    I can think of two good ways to do this;
    1. If your router is also WiFi enabled, you can get a WiFi repeater (prices start around $30-40) and place it midway between the router and the laptop. The repeater will double the router's WiFi range (approximately).
    2. My favourite solution is to use a HomePlug/PowerLine solution. This consists of two or more adapters, which communicate over your house's mains circuit. In other words, they use your mains wiring so that it doubles up as network cabling. Connect one adapter to your router with an ethernet cable, and the other adapter to your laptop (or, for the second adapter, you can use a PowerLine WiFi adapter which will give you a WiFi access point in the room where the laptop is). In my experience, PowerLine is awesome! It works across much more reliably than WiFi and over greater distances (obviously, only indoors!). If you share electrical circuits with housemates or neighbours you can turn on encryption and then your communication is also very secure. Speeds vary with adapters, distances and line conditions, but in most cases you'll be able to get around 80mbps, which is about the same as ordinary ethernet cabling (100base).

      Hi, to take your last point first, PowerLine adapters do exactly what you want. They use the (concealed) mains wiring instead of external cables. As for links on ebay.in, here are some.

      WiFi reapeaters:

      Comfast WiFi Repeater

      and here's another

      There are similar units available from other manufacturers, including "big names" such as Netgear and DLink

      PowerLine adaptors:
      Cisco Linksys PLWK400 (kit including everything you need)

      D-LINK DHP-209AV PowerLine (basic kit with two wireed adapters).

      hi. Thanks. Can you please tell whether telephone line socket also act as connector between laptop and router?

      No, you can't use phone lines for networking.
      Technically it can of course be done (that's essentially what ADSL is!), but there are no consumer-level products I know of that allow you to use phone lines within the home in that way.

      The phone lines, of MTNL company, as much as i understand, work through a d s l. Can you please elaborate how a d s l can be used for same Internet connection in another room? As i have heard that parallel lines in m t n l company do not allow Internet connection for second workstation.

      you mentioned about electrical lines which can be used as connection. You mean the plug socket in another room can be used to connect wired router in 1 room to the laptop in another room?

      An ADSL connection can be shared by setting up a local network just like any other kind of connection. There is still only one ADSL line coming into the premises connected to a single modem. A router is still required to connect multiple devices at that single location. A single set of telephone lines can only be used for a single ADSL connection (i.e., there can only be one ADSL modem using a single phone line).

      For the second part: Yes, the premises electrical wiring can be used as the transmission media for a home network by using powerline adapters. Oron provided links in a previous comment.

      Thank you oron and bruce. Dear bruce, do you mean concealed wires to the plug socket?

      Please note that question is for the plug socket leading to the concealed wires, which in turn can tether in Internet?

    You can use tetherin in one simple way possible.Connect your phone to your laptop via cable(bluetooth,or wirelles also).. Then simply enable internet connection on your mobile that your mobile provider is giving you. And you have internet whenever you go.Instant access.More about tethering on the next link: http://mobileoffice.about.com/od/phonesformobileworkers/f/what-is-tethering.htm

    Good luck!
