Really? How about some links then, cos I can't see any cheaper.

Delivery is £4.79; where did you get free from?

Cheaper than £19 each?? Do me a favour

Just ordered 2 packs as so fed up with wireless now

I was questioning the statement that there were cheaper deals on Google - not that these are not a bargain at £38 for the twinpack. I have Homeplugs for six years and they are brilliant. So much faster and more reliable than wireless.

Just splashed out £100 on 4 Solwise plugs - changed the way I surf! Amazing!

How easy would these be to set up for someone thats never been able to make a router work before?

I love people who make references like this but can never back them up! My friend if you know better/cheaper sources post them and get some heat/rep yourself!!

I think you still realistically need to use a router. What was your problem with setting one up?
#11
Silly question, can you mix and match between brands ? I have some Devolo plugs - can these be used in conjunction ?

Well ive tried with a wired and a wireless one and i just cant work out the settings and stuff like that.


Would i be able to just use a usb or ethernet cable to the plug and it works?

I have these things at home and Im set up as follows:

Living room:
1x ADSL modem/router
1x Xbox 360 pluged into ADSL modem/router
1x homeplug connected to ADSL modem/router

Bedroom
1x homeplug
1x Xbox 360 plugged into the homeplug

Spare room
1x homeplug
1x computer connecting into the homeplug

All of this works with no special setup of the ADSL modem beyond what my ISP did to it before they sent it to me. So in short its a lot more simple (and reliable) than setting up a wireless connection.

All you need to do is make sure that all the computers are on the same workgroup.
#14
I you use them as they come straight out of the box, there is no setup. It is as if you had a physical ethernet cable between the sockets - entirely transparent.

I had success mixing 14Mbps and 85Mbps at one point, but one day they stopped talking to each other for no apparent reason. Never had a problem mixing 85Mbps.
#15
I've never used one of these before and I'm seriously considering it 'cos I have a seperate building at the end of the garden which is out of wireless range and I'd like to use it as office space.

couple of questions to those in the know...

1) I notice that it comes with software for Windows. What does this software do and is it available for a Mac ?
2) How are IPs allocated if you have say 3 homeplugs (1 to the router and 2 throughout the house)
3) The building at the end of my garden has a separate consumer unit that hangs off the consumer unit in the main building. Will the homeplug work if I have one in the main house (connected to the router) and one in The other building ?

Thanks in advance

I notice PCWorld sell Advent branded 85mb homeplug adapters. Pair for £34.99 web price.

PCworld stores price match their webprice don't they?

Are the Advent ones any good?

You shouldn't need to use the software, so it will work with Macs as well as with Windows. You can buy a router and homeplug as an all-in-one from Maplin (I bought several when they were reduced to under £20 a few months ago). Or you just connect your router to the mains with a homeplug. The mains just carries the signal, and other homeplugs pick it up from the socket they are plugged into, then pass it on to an ethernet cable which goes into your PC or laptop. It should work straight out of the box.

Not sure about connecting to the building at the bottom of your garden, but this is what it says on the Faculty-X site: The signal can travel between floors of a house even when they are on a different ring main, as long as they are on the same consumer/fuse-box your side of the meter.

Hope that helps.

The settings (address, username, password) should all come from your ISP. Speak to them.

You need a router (acts as modem and firewall to connect out). The ethernet cable from the pc effectively connects to this (or via wireless, but essentially same thing).

The apartment block I live in has 9 visible WiFi networks!! How many others are invisible?!?!

Needless to say, I ditched WiFi, as there was no way I could get decent speeds.
For those that don't understand WiFi, all you need to know is that there are 4 (I think) discreet channels, with the rest overlapping. Therefore, if you are on channel 1, and so are other people, then you are all sharing "up to" 54Mbps.

The other thing you need to appreciate is that you will never, ever get near to 54Mbps. To get a guesstimate of your sustained transfer rate (a much more useful value), you should halve the value, and halve again. Therefore, for 54Mbps you would be looking at 13Mbps.
Or, if there are 4 of you sharing a WiFi channel, then you need to divide by 4 again!! NB: This gives a worst-case, sustained transfer value.

Went for Netgear HDX101 200Mbps PowerLine adaptors, and didn't look back.

My ADSL modem/router is plugged into one.
I have another in my 'computer room', plugged into a network switch, which then feeds my PC and NAS.
I have a 3rd behing the telly, again, fed into a mini-switch to feed the 360 & PS3.

And once again, I have decent bandwidth around my home network.

Disclaimer: PowerLine is dependant upon the quality of your mains wiring, as such YMMV.

These are £42.78 including delivery, so not that much of a great deal. Especially with the PC world pair than can be collected in store for £35.

Agreed

With the devices from the Op , Could I use 1 of the devices to transmite from my router to the network, and then have 2 other devices that 'receive' on the network so I can use 2 PCs and 1 router with 3 devices?

Or

Will I need 1 pair of devices (and a port on the router) for each PC I wish to connect to the router over the power lines?

Thanks.

I don't think so, its like a virtual patch cable so think of the two units as two ends of a long patch cable.

having said that you could connect your router to another switch then connect whatever devices you want to the switch

Just to say I bought the PC world Advent ones for £35 yesterday and the little bandwidth utility tells me they are connected at 80Mbps - this is up 1 floor and each adapter using it's own socket (well 1 downstairs is on a 2 way socket and the other socket musy have 10+ things plugged in via 3, 4 way extensions!).

I haven't seen them drop below 30Mbs yet in real use and they haven't dropped the conneciotn in over 24 hours wher as my 54g wifi would do so every 24 hours or so. Go get them!
#28
If u go and get the One at PC World

QUIDCO 2.5%
Use this code here: http://hotukdeals.com/all/vouchers/new?expired=false&mf=15
And you shall get it for £38.19 Delivered and then the 2.5% quidco

Or u can pick up in store for £34.99 and get 2.5% back from QUIDCO also...
if all that makes sense... cheaper with PC World online... and pickup in store..
#29
Ok, thanks for the info elitom. I thought so, but wanted to check.
#30
These are awesome, who'd have thought your power can be used to send data! Ingenious! Also very secure too since there is nothing physical connecting you to the next house, someone will have to be physically in your house and plug in to your network similar to a wired Ethernet set up. With additional MAC filtering and encryption it will be about 99% as secure as direct ethernet. The beauty of the ring main is that it will all be one loop and all be feeding straight back to your consumer unit so in theory any socket can be used in the house.

Great info thanks. Rep left. Could you tell us the age of the house/wiring?
#32
what mbps are they, as i understood it they had to be 200 mbps? Ive been after a set of these for ages for my 360, do they need the faster speeds?

I doubt your internet speed is going to be anything greater than 20Mb so these will be more than adequate. You will rarely ever use its full potential.
#34
Thanks to this thread i went and got some of the Advent ones from PC World.

I'm a little confused and could do with some help. They are connected and working fine and the application that comes with the package states that I have achieved the full 85Mbps but when i transfer a file between 2 machine across the network I only seem to be getting around 1 MB/s. I would have thought it would have been faster considering i'm am achieving a full strength connection. Can anyone with the Advent ones (or the others) let me know if they achieve faster throughput?

Thanks
