Advertisements I recently installed a Pro + 2 minis for a friend and she mentioned that one of the Minis has complained about no connection to the Pro, but the situation usually resolves itself pretty quickly. I checked the network status on all 3 and what I found is that the 2 minis see each other with 280Mbits TX/RX rates and they each see the Pro with only about 120-140Mbits TX/RX. From what I've read that should be enough data rate for them to do their jobs correct? I'll probably have to crawl around under the house to see how the connections are split (every time I turn around I find another coax cable with a splitter with all 3 ends coming/going into walls and floors so I have little idea of the total topology, grrr). I did install a PoE filter where I thought it would work best. I found a coax amp and a 1:4 splitter in a closet in the garage. I'm pretty sure that this is fairly far out in the chain of splitters, but only a crawl under the house will likely prove that. I installed the filter just after the amp. I'm guessing that if I installed the filter between the Pro and the two minis that I would have a lot more than half rate, or could that be the cause? (When I'm over there later I guess I can remove the filter and double check, but I wanted to get some idea of the effect of the filter before I do any more experiments.) Would another amp hidden in the crawl space on the run to the Pro possibly cause the rate to halve? And could the half rate they are getting possibly be the cause for the occasional "no connection" errors in and of itself, or at least a smoking gun for the cause?
