Hot...

Good price, but I would suggest going for the 200Mbps version for the extra tenner.

Does anyone know if you can mix & match these power adapters? i.e. If I have a different brand as the transmitter connected to my modem/router, will these work as receivers?

Couldn't get my 85M Orange ones running with 200Mb other brand.. but didn't try that hard as I got a 7 port hub for behind the TV/Video/Media Player and PC all in the same area of the room and connected the 200Mb one to this..

So sold the 85Mb on eBay X)

85Mbps - no thank you when decent ones are only a few quid dearer.

Even if they were half again I'd probably give them a miss - but I'd vote it hot for you if they where. :D
#6
They have to be the same speed to connect, you can't bridge the different speeds with homeplugs.

85 are fine for most things. It depends on what you want them for.

You'll see from the other posts on Orange adapters that they use a slightly different protocol than the Homeplug standard, so are great when used in a 'Orange only' setup, but not if you want to mix and match brands.

None of 85 adapters (from Orange or not) will work with 200 ones. The Homeplug AV standard requires these to coexist but not interoperate.

If your setup is using 85Mbps it is pointless to buy 200Mbps ones as it will only slow down things significantly for either segment. The setup must be made entirely of either 85 or 200.

Look at what happens to 200Mbps transfers on the same network as 85Mbps:

As to speed of 85... well I've got 4 media players connected to NAS via Homeplug 85 and all 4 can stream video at the same time without problems.

Bought these last week to go with my new Sony Internet TV and they work brilliantly - No problems setting them up and I've watched youtube/iplayer/lovefilm with no problems at all so far.

Got a link for that? In response to Thursday's find on this site I've just bought a pair of Orange (i.e. Devolo) HomePlugs and found that they'd talk to each other but not recognise my Baudtec HomePlug devices. Then I downloaded the software from the Devolo website and set the password on the new HomePlugs to match the password on the other devices and all is now sweetness and light.

Sorry JonBoy, I might have been talking a load of cobblers :)

Could have sworn someone mentioned it in a previous thread, but couldn't find it... it seems there's no problem at all.

Personally, I have two 85mb/s Devolos and one old 14mb/s Netgear homeplug adapter. Even the 14mb/s one streams iPlayer fine. Due to really thick granite walls, my wireless g doesn't get very far. I have a wireless repeater at the other end of the house.

Very pleased with even the slow homeplug adapters, better than blitzing the air with signal and hoping some of it will reach my tv pc!

Heat.

Is there a massive difference in the 85 and the 200?

I got myself an Acer Revo and installed XBMC but it's been a nightmare trying to get the Wifi working so i've decided to get myself a pair of homeplugs. I'm on 'upto' 8mb BT broadband and i'll mainly be using it for library updates on the XBMC and if I got a third homeplug to watch Iplayer on another TV. Would 85mb/s be acceptable or would It be worth getting the 200mb/s ones?
#14
Anyone know who manufacturers these?.

I have just emailed them to find out.

These work brilliantly on a Humax Freesat receiver, BBC iPlayer works without any hesitation/loads at all during playback even on selecting H.Q. 8)

Please do post if you know who has made these as I purchased a pair about a year ago and they overheated and stopped working as you generally tend to leave them plugged in and on. They do get quite warm. These have 2 yr guarantee but you would have to go via 7dayshop which isn't great.

The software that you can download for it from the link on the 7dayshop product description indicates it's manufactured by Intellon.

I have just received a pair of these and I cannot get them working! I have set it up as per instructions but the homeplug connected to the remote (not the one attached to the router) can never assign an ip address to the laptop or ps3.

The PowerPacket software that comes with it indicates you can see the home plug when connected to the laptop and it can also see the homeplug device that is connected to the router. Problem is that the ps3 or pc never gets an IP address when connected to the homeplug.
The network connection always reports 'Limited or no connectivity'. The ps3 reports a similar problem.

I am on sky broadband with the sagem router. Has anyone else had any problems like this?

Wide awake jake, mine worked straight out the box. Is there any benefit in me downloading the software you mentioned.

The software provides diagnostics on the pc, so you can see if the homeplug is recognised by the pc, and also if it finds a connection to another homeplug.

Mine showed nothing, but I switched them round and then I saw that it had managed to recognise that another homeplug was connected (via the mains I presume), but this only happened for brief moments twice. (it said last connected 9.06, then again at 9.29.) It still wouldn't assign and IP address via the homeplug though, and always showed limited connectivity on the connection....

I tried swapping them around and changing router ports but nothing seems to work on either pc or ps3. Just get this 'couldn't assign network address (on ps3) or IP address (on pc). This was even using two plug sockets next to each other.

I have emailed 7dayshop, and might return them if they can't help. My house is only 3 years old, so I doubt its the wiring.
