    Also thanks for the recommendations for chromecast audio - I've got one here for my dad for Christmas just need an RCA-3.5mm cable to hook up to his AMP. The instructions seem very, very straight forward which he'll love (means less calls to me too!).

    Thanks again guys!

    I'd been meaning to do this with my dads speaker stands for a while. Add that to the list of stuff I may do over Christmas.

    The festive period is almost here and that means trying to complete Skyrim again for the 49th time.

    I'm planning on getting comfy with a beer and the fire on.

    Thank you - how do I find out what ranges my router automatically assigns?

    PC worked fine last night, booted up and had a network connection straight off the bat. Must be the powerlines conflicting.

    Next thing to try and work out is if I can use different brands of powerlines together as in have one input from the router and two outputs.

    Yes two different sets.

    I don't know unless I could take one from the set and use that?

    Thanks mate - I'll take a look tonight

    Plan is assign a fixed IP address on my PC to get that working - I take it I just do this through the EE router settings?

    Then I'll try on housemates powerlines.

    I've never fixed IP addresses before so this could be interesting.

    Could it be that the 2 powerline adaptors are conflicting with each other? Resulting in the no IP thing.

    Funnily enough I unplugged one from the router on Sat and it seems to work fine now.

    It's router to 2 powerline adaptors - the one of them in my room and another in my house mates.

    I'm at my wits end with it although I've made it my mission to fix this over Christmas!

    To be honest I'm not sure.
    What is the setup you have? Router to powerline adaptor, and then three others in other rooms?
    As boring as it is it is probably worth trying the one that you've taken out in a position that you now know works to see if it is that particular adaptor that is at fault. If it does work then I'd add another adaptor in one at a time to see if you can replicate the problem.
