I have recently had a lot of zigbee devices going unavailable. In doing reading on troubleshooting I came upon the suggestion that wifi can drown out zigbee. My ST hub is sitting right next to my router. My hub is on 20 and I just moved my 2.4 network to channel 1. If I have read the diagrams I found on the forums correctly, that should keep them separated band wise. That being said, what do people do to separate the two devices physically? Just use a long ethernet cord or do people use some other neat tricks? I have my router and ST hub (and cable model and Tablo) all stuffed in a closet since they all require ethernet access. With some extension cords I could probably get about 3-4 feet of distance but it would get to be a gangly wire mess which my wife may not appreciate. Suggestions?
One thought I just had is I have a powerline adapter running from the router closet mess down to my PC which has an ethernet switch with a bunch of other devices connected. Would also be a cable mess there, but it already is, so my wife would probably be ok with that. That seem like an acceptable solution?
