Sometimes the 'easy' way isn't the best way.

Posted 06-18-2011 at 02:32 AM by rich_c

I put my openSUSE box on the network using a Comtrend Powerline adaptor. It was connected using an Edimax wireless/usb adaptor which worked OK but wasn't particularly fast or reliable. The connection over the house wiring is much better on both counts.

Sorry for the recent spate of "Are you going to the desktop summit?" posts -- I've been interviewing and announcing and editing things for the DS, sometimes I get stuck in that frame of mind!

Anyways, are you going to the desktop summit?? It's in Berlin in August, I should be there. ;-)
