Network upgrade

A couple of weeks ago, I upgraded my Telenet broadband connection from 30Mbit to 60Mbit (with 4Mbit upload speed). There is also a 120 Mbit option but I found the 20€/month extra just a bit too much, I can also upgrade afterwards. The switch over was easy: drill some holes in the wall to install the modem+router, remove the old modem and re-onnect the cables. And degraded my Linksys E3000 router to become an (extra) access point.

Next I upgraded my old D-Link power line adapter to Netgear 500 Mbit PowerLine adapters (XAVB5602). These adapters have built-in power outlet and come with 2 Ethernet ports.
