This means that you do not lose the use of a socket.

You still need to connect this with an Ethernet cable to your router as usual.

Compatible with other home-plugs.

Good product and good price H&R added :)
#2
These look great at that price.
#3
I've been keeping an eye on these as an alternative to the Belkin ones ebuyer have for £70ish.

Has anyone tried these that can give feedback/review? ie do they hang down too far from the socket?

is this 200mpbs though - what NIC does it have?

This is where I get really annoyed with IT...i nearly bought the item below as it would fit better than my current netgear hdx101 powerline and gigabit switch (which id move elsewhere)...i looked at this

[COLOR=#800080]http://www.netgear.co.uk/common/pdfs/xavb1004_ds_22may09.pdf[/COLOR]

notice the criminal marketing bull - up to 200mbps, yes..look below and it clearly states it has a 10/100 mbps NIC so how the hell will it achive 'up to 200mpbs' when its physically impossible - should be up to 100mpbs

i sent netgear a terse letter as luckily i am an IT / Telco consultant and checked these things but most people wouldnt know...can you imagine a cinema selling you a seat to watch a movie and you get there and they should 1/2 the movie
what do you expect, IT/Telco companies nowadays employ people on the cheap so now we have stupid clueless people in these functions

companies that make these claims should be brought to task under the laws

I believe that they mean 100Mbps each way when they state 200Mbps.

It's the same with all the manufacturers of home-plugs, but it's not very clear at all.

Can two different brands of home ethernet plugs be used. I have as pair of netgear 1004 ones, and there tempermental with which plugs they want, mine wont go on an extension lead so it has to have a wall plug, which means i have to take the phone one out and put it in the entension lead until im finished, this item wud be the solution as i can use the one plug for my network. so the set up i would like is one of these connected to the router then the other match in my living room, then the netgear ones in my office.

In theory, as long as they are the same speed (i.e. both 200) and use the same chipset inside, then they should be compatible

From what I understand you can use different brands - but they have to be of the same speed. Ie all need to be 200 speed to work.

The most common chipset is from Intellon, and Netgear uses Intellon for some equipment

but whether ebuyer value units use Intellon only ebuyer can tell you

I have them, work great with my PS3 & WD TV Live!
#16
Just googled the manufacturer part number from the ebuyer site, and it seems they are made by Shenzhen Gongjin Electronics Co., Ltd. I'm interested in these, so I've emailed them and asked what chipset they use to see if it's compatible with my existing ZxXEL ones. If I get a reply, I'll let you know.

saw this yesterday and forgot to post! D'oh! What annoys me is the orientation of the 3 pins - not sure it'll work in my old house with sockets so close to the floor

Yeah it's 100 each way, same way all of these powerline adapters are, they state the total value

I suspect they do, their description appears to be a cut and paste from a Chinese based manufacturer:

http://www.fanvil.com/upfiles/2009781613680776.pdf

Which uses the Intellon INT6300 chipset.

You can turn the electrical sockets upside down if the size of the plugs is an issue.
#22
Do they use a lot of electric?
#23
bigjeremy

I'm considering getting these as in our house wifi from PS3 to router is very patchy as due to their positioning on 2 different floors at different sides of house then the signal path goes through floor ceiling at a very shallow angle - i.e. sees a large "thickness". While ideally I'd run a wired connection to the PS3 it would involve a lot of hassle and a plug based connection @ £50 looks very convenient!
#24
I just bought a brand new pair of netgear XAVB101 200mbps powerlines for £60. what are they like compared to these? and are they compatible with any other 200mbps if i decide to expand my network or do i have to get the same one?

Cheers guys. Thanks alot for the help. I tink they will work and if not then i dont mind as i can use the other one the other way when i need connects in the office.

I'm thinking of getting them so I can put my backup NAS in a bedroom and forget about it, rather than have to have it behind the telly next to the router.

In theory yes in practice no. They have to be on the same Home plug firmware version and have the same chipset. In reality I have never got different manufactured models to work together.

I am running the zyxel 200mb units currently so would be interested to know if these are made by the same company and would work together.

Anyway these things are brilliant so much better than wifi for media streaming and online gamming. I get 40 - 70meg sustained out of these over all 4 floors of our house even on different circuits and split consumer units with no packet loss vs 4 - 5 meg with 54g wifi with packet loss and no coverage on the 4th floor of the house.

Excellent price as well so complete no brainer. Just waiting for the Ham radio geeks to come along so can give them some grief :whistling:

So can you give example of how the setup work say for instance i have pc and acer revo under my tv so i want both using my virgin cable.
#29
I recommend "Comtrend" powerline adapters

I have been using 4 and they have been switched on continously for 3 years (Sorry Ozone Layer) and they are incredibly reliable, I have never needed to touch any of them, I use them with PC and PS3.

The good news is that "Ebay" is your best friend as these adapters were free with BT Vision etc and lots of people have them for sale, just type "comtrend" into Ebay

There were a few versions of this adapter, ones with pass though 3 pin mains sockets and ones without, they can all be paired together so if you buy 2 single adapters they can be paired on a typical extension lead.

Thats just my 2 cents from my experience, you can pick up a pair for £40

How do these compare to a wireless n network setup, and also can they be used on extension bricks or do they have to be plugged into the wall directly?

They are much more reliable than a wireless network, and they can be used through an extension brick, but it cannot be a surge protector extension.

I know people will say wireless is fine, and yes it is fine for a while, but after a few months my wireless started disconnecting more frequently, possibly because I never switch off my router for long periods of time. That would force me to reset the router every few days, which I don't have to worry about with powerline because it is far more reliable (almost as good as a direct connection), and extremely fast (even when transferring stuff from my Media server to my PS3)

You'll likely get much better performance than from wireless N, most importantly you'll not get interference from other wireless networks.

I've used other brands when in a simple 4 way extension, they don't like being used in extensions with surge filters, but your £2.97 Ikea extensions are fine.

interested to know how much power they consume as we have enough stuff plugged in now draining on the electricity bill...

Do I need 4 of these - I have router on 1 room, Desktop in another bedroom, Laptop in another bedroom and Xbox downstairs.

How do they get assigned ip addresses?

Yes you'll need 4.

They don't get IP addresses, they're transparent to the network.

Just remember everything interferes with wifi, Microwave ovens, wireless alarms, other peoples wifi.

You name it can cause a problem. When you get intereference you get packet loss, when you get packet loss you get lag especially in online gamming and if you are streaming bigger video files especially on the limits of range.

Also in older houses like mine with brick walls and over a number of floors wifi reception is really, really poor. Like I said with 54g wifi the best I can expect is 4 - 5 meg sustained with packet loss.

With these 200 homeplugs the least you can expect is 40 - 50 meg. So worst case they are 10 times better for moving data, network use, streaming and in terms of gamming as you get no packet loss. They work with extension cords of course, mine work over 50 metres of wiring via split consumer units and different circuits but all these factors create more intereference = lower sustained speeds, but still much much better than wifi. At the furthest point of my Homeplug network I still get up to 40 meg sustained - In comparision I dont even get a wifi signal there !

Also these are plug and play, require no setup and are much more secure than wifi - virtually impossible to hack vs Wifi very easy to hack if its not been correctly setup. You try and tell people how much better these are over Wifi and they just dont understand or ignore the facts but there you go.

Wifi is great - for your iphone and laptop browsing the web but thats about it really. In terms of wired performance networking these things are the future. On the power issue they use hardly any power, I have a BG power monitor and with everything off and these running they barely register.

are these any good though? as in these in particular? the other deal for £30 is only 85mps but has alot of good reviews. i only need it for ps3 and only have a 5mb connection so the 85mps would be ideal but the fact that this has got the extra socket thing makes it tempting. anyone have any experience with these inparticular??

I don't know how much these ones use, but a friend had a set of Belkin gigabit adapters. They got so hot to touch that they must have been using a pretty significant amount of electricty. They may have been faulty, I haven't got an identical set to compare against.

My devolo units, for example, don't get hot and I'm unable to see a difference in electricity usage (via my british gas minim) when they're on or off.
