My Apple TV has been via wireless for years and works OK, but I want to get a better internet connection. Currently the TWC come into front of house where my office is. Have the cable router, airport extreme N here with my MacPro and community laser printer hardwired to AE via gigabit ethernet. MacMini, which it the iTunes host, is hardwired into the 3rd AE ethernet slot. Apple TV 2 is in back of house with main Sony TV and wife has 27” iMac in a separate den area. Both work OK via wireless, but at night during prime time, the wife watches Thai TV via utube and I watch mostly the Apple TV. Speed slows down a bit and if Time Warner or Apple are having any problems, which seems to be happening more and more lately, the Apple TV has problems getting programs to start or re-establish a lost connection. My plan is to move the MacMini to the back of the house and hardwire the Apple TV to it via ethernet. I ordered 2 TrendNet TPL-420E powerline connectors (new AV1200 gigabit ethernet that supposedly work over greater distances) to connect between the Airport Extreme and the Mac Mini and they will be here tomorrow. Couple of questions: I need an extra ethernet port for the MacMini/Apple TV, as the TrendNet adapter has only 1. Already have a older gigabit switch, does is matter where it is hooked up in this arrangement? Was thinking of wiring the TrendNet to the switch and splitting the Apple TV and MacMini off the switch. Or does the MacMini need to feed directly to the Apple TV via it’s Ethernet port, i.e. anything special need to be done to get the Apple TV to recognize the hardwire connection, as currently under the General Menu it only show Wireless as being available. Assume this is where the new Ethernet connection will show up? Your comments/suggestions are appreciated.
