Reply To: External network cable
I have all my external kit in the garage. As you say it is generally a nice cool place that does not freeze. The only downside I have discovered is that spiders quickly populate the rats nest of Ethernet cables!
About the only fix I have found is an ostrich feather duster. (the vac is difficult to move around in the space I have)
I agree with Dave, a cabled link to your wifi router may be required as there are often too many walls blocking signals.
