I am having connectivity issues with one of my computers. I have Fiber optic DSL, there is a line that runs from the phone box around to the study, with an Ethernet cable jack in the wall. no modem, study computer can plug directly into the wall, & has connection that way. I use a cable from the wall into a netgear prosafe gs105e splitter box.
has 5 ports, I have the wall jack plugged into the prosafe, I run a cable from it into the study computer and another cable to a power line adapter, to use the house wiring with another power line adapter in a bedroom. the only thing I own that can use wifi is my ps3 so I have no wifi.
both computers are windows 10 systems
the computer in the bedroom will loose connection the yellow caution sign, not the red X I get if I unplug the cable all together.
the 3 lights on the powerline connecter shows that it has internet to that point, normally it doesn't last very long but sometimes it will go for hours without connection.
on a very rare occasion the bedroom computer will have a connection and the study does not. it will go days at a time where everything is fine.
I have tried unplugging everything, the splitter power cord, the powerline adapters, I have tried switching which port the Ethernet cables are plugged into on the netgear splitter.
Nothing works when it desides not to works. I am a net work novice, if it doesn't plug and play I am lost.
any help? I will need a babystep walk through.
