Can this be used to connect an xbox 360 to my router?
#2
Hi,
I use a similar product to connect my network printer to my router and my 360 to my router. Obviously you have to have one connected to your router and then just add another 'plug' for each device.

If you have two or more devices located near each other consider a 'switch' to share the ip address from the 'plug' adapter to the router rather than buy more 'plugs' (cost dependant).

These things appear to work across ring mains aswell.

Far, far more reliable than a wireless signal :thumbsup:
#3
These work fine with the xbox. However check out Amazon - Zyxel 200mbps at £48; I think these are well worth the extra money.
#5
eh, i dont quite get these devices.

so if i have a wireless router downstairs, and an xbox 360 in my room, do i connect one of these to the wireless router and then the other to my xbox 360?

but it seems they have to be plugged into the mains?

and my m8s got a wireless router that doesnt reach his bedroom, can he use this to extend the network so it reaches his room?

Ta in advance

yes you are right, plug one of these into a main socket next to your router and then connect the network cable between the two, then do the same with your xbox in the other room by connecting its network cable to the plug again. This will then form a network using your existing mains powerlines that run through your home, much stronger and more reliable than a wireless connection,

"so if i have a wireless router downstairs, and an xbox 360 in my room, do i connect one of these to the wireless router and then the other to my xbox 360?"

Yes indeed obviously you plug the network cable into router then into the wallplug then the wall plug goes into the wall. Same with the 360..yes the network single gets transfered via the ring main in the house. :thumbsup:
#8
wow thats quite neat, so do these plugs have more than one network cable socket as my m8 wants to connect his xbox and his pc to it as he gets a weak signal with both?

regards

yus

edit: had a look at the pics and it looks like they only have one, is there such thing as a network cable splitter?! hmm /me ebays it!
#9
ok i cant find anything from the uk in terms of a network cable splitter, does anyone know what they are called if they do exist?

yus
#10
You could get a network hub and use it with that in the room his PC and Xbox are, that's what I'm going to do with the 200mbps amazon ones

can I ask a question about these, I have Virgin cable router and there is only one ethernet connection on it and that goes to the wireless modem, will these work if i plug the cable into the modem and not the router, and can some one tell me the difference between the one's above and dLan one's.
#15
If you need to plug the xbox and a pc into the homeplug in the bedroom then all you need is a cheap network switch like this.

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132456

A 5 port switch means you can connect 4 devices ( with port being used for the uplink to the homeplug). Need more devices, get a switch with more ports.

I have a similar same set up. Wireless router downstairs connected to homeplug. Another homeplug upstairs connected to a 5 port switch, in turn connected to a couple of PCs and a printer. Works a treat. I got the ZyXel 200Mbps ones from amazon.

Get a switch rather than a hub. With switches so cheap there is no need for an inferior hub.

You would need to buy the Twinpack Network adapters in this thread. One plugs in beside the wireless router downstairs and connects to one of the ports on it. One plugs in beside the Xbox/Computer. The one beside the Xbox/PC would then be connected to something like http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132456 which would then allow you to connect your Xbox and pc to the one line.

Hope that helps a bit.

Connect your modem to the wireless router then connect the wireless router to the homeplug

How about the two plugs in the BTVision Tesco 9.97 package. Xtra 160g hard disk and scart cable free !

Slighlty off topic - I believe you can use any spare WiFi router as a bridge to connect your Xbox360. I was using a Linksys WAG354G as my Adsl router and a hacked LaFonera as bridge. For some reason my Linksys stopped working (I believe it is the modem which packed up). I borrowed a Draytek Vigor 2800G from work, but cannot make it work with my LaFon.

Hi, this should work fine to split the signal once you have it in your room via the homeplug and can connect up to 5 devices :thumbsup:
#21
dose these work with ZyXEL cable router ?
#22
thanks been looking at getting some of these as the wireless connection to my pc is so unstable, £39.99 including delivery AM tomorrow, thanks heat added.
#23
which are the amazon ones for 48 quid as i can only see them for 69 at the mo? i would like them at 48 to be honest :)
I am currently borrowing a set from my inlaws to see how good they are, they ahve the bt 200mbps and they are great for streaming media downstairs
#24
Thanks, I went for the amazon ones at £48 (free delivery) in the end, I stream alot of 1080P movies to the xbox so need all the bandwidth i can get and you rarely get the full bandwidth offered.
Both offers are good value for money!
Memnoch1976 - on the product page it says 8 new and used from £48 click that and youll see the first seller is amazon at £48.

Hi all. Ive been reading this thread with interest. I recently got a PS3 and already have a Wii. I want to connect both to the internet via a cable as the wireless network is too slow to make it work for online gaming. I understand the principle of the adaptors turning the ring main into a network but I have a question:

Is the ring main network as fast as connecting the Wii or PS3 to the internet via an ethernet cable?

Also I was looking at the ethernet switches too. I have seen them before but never really understood what they do. I now understand that you can connect a number of devices to a single ethernet cable. But can you have all the devices on at the same time? E.g a PS3 and a Wii? And if so does this degrade the speed of the connection?

Many many thanks in advance for any help with this.

#26
Worth paying the extra for the amazon ones?
#27
Ok let me get my say in here.

I have 2 of these (not identicle) homeplug adapters. They are great

I have one downstairs connected to my router and another in my room which I have connected up to a switch which I have my 360, Laptop and PC in. I have never had any issues with the device in over 6 months.

I got so fed up with trying o get a constantly good, secure connection with wireless, if your the same just get these they really do save so much messing about.

Please note: they do need to be plugged direct into a power socket on the wall, they do not work through multigang power splitters.

they do not reccomend you using them with a multiplug extension but i have read where people have had no problems, my ebuyer ones are due in the next hour as i had a free upgrade to guaranteed AM delivery, will let you know what i think once they are setup
#30
right product arrived in an ebuyer branded box, unboxed to find two ethernet cables included and a small CD rom and installation leaflet. Then i remembered that my DVD drive was in a new pc i was building so no go there with the driver installation.

Continued to plug one into my SKY router by my front door and the other into my PC at the back of the lounge, booted on the PC and wham bam thank you mam they were ready to go, no driver install required with XP pro.

Tested them with newsgroups and getting a solid 1700k/sec, anybody want a belkin wireless adaptor cos these offer a far more stable connection, best money I have spent in a while

I use mine with a 6 way multiplug extension with no problems but i have got the 200mb ones.
#33
I have a similar product from Ebuyer for 2 years now and they work great out of the box. I have them plugged into extension leads at both ends and no signal loss. I have also tried them in my summer house which is 90ft away and get an 85% signal on the laptop.
#34
D'oh. I was looking to get these just had to wait till next week and now they've suddenly gone back to normal price £39.99. Typical ebuyer, what happened to the January sale here ... probably still get them though.
#35
Well Ive bought some from Amazon as they were 200mbps rather than the 85mbps that the ebuyer ones were. Fingers crossed I can online game on the PS3 at a good speed.
#36
showing as 44.99 now so that sale didn't last long
#37
These are back to £34.99

I missed out last time but I bought some zyxel 200mbps ones for £44 delivered in the meantime.
#38
Scan also have the 200mbps ones (Linksys) for £48.29
