Just had BT installed yesterday and wireless strength down from 5 to 3 bars.
Have ordered these in the hope it stops crashing as its doing my head in.

Checked reviews on site and all very good - and product much cheaper than Amazon ones.
Ordered - Thanks

plus £4 delivery? surely these ones posted yesterday from ebuyer are cheaper http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/powerline-adapter-twin-pack-tp-link-200mbps-ebuyer-34-98-delivery-from-3-58/954601

The TP-Link at ebuyer are not "pass through".

The TP-Link at ebuyer are not "pass through".

Recently started to be interested in these, what's passthrough though? Does it make a difference?
#6
I understand what they do, but not sure how they work! Is one a sender and one a receiver or are they both just things that plug into electricity? What I need to know is if I buy 2 twin packs can I put one into my wifi and the other 3 on things such as xbox, bluray and ps3?
Thanks

Yep one goes into the router and all the others can go into whatever you want :)
#8

passthrough simply means these have a plug socket on the front so you can still use the wall outlet.

for the TP-Link ones, they just simply plug in the same but you lose the use of the wall outlet (unless you use an extension lead - some people say performance is affected, others don't)

I guess it depends how many things you want to plug in!
#9

Just think of them as using the electric wiring like a piece of network cable - not as fast as connecting directly with a long network cable but convenient
#10
I have the non passthrough version plugged into 4 way extension leads. 1 on the downstairs ring with a cable to the router the other to an internet tv upstairs (I believe on a different ring). Works a treat and never had connection loss. Don't see the point in paying extra for a passthrough version but these are a good price if you insist.

If using an extension lead I believe you should avoid one with surge protection as it interferes with the signal
#11
I have these ones and they work really well, no messing about I just plugged them in and they worked straight away.

Thanks for all your help and information. Ordered a twin pack for now, arriving tomorrow, hopefully will get my Sony bluray (bought from a tip on this forum!) onto the wifi for iplayer etc.

Hi, I was considering buying some of these myself, but I was wondering how many I would need. Would I just need one plugged into the router, then would I be able to have one in my room for my pc, another for my ps3 and another for my sisters pc? or would I need one plugged into the router for each piece of equipment?

Thanks

It'll work a treat, but keep an eye on your downloads if you have a fixed allowance from your ISP.

Excellent, thanks for that

Need to spend another £10 for free delivery or lose out on £4.18.

Any good deal on Ebuyer for £10 or a bit more?

EDIT - anyone know if this 5-port switch would be fine to work with these? http://www.ebuyer.com/product/225791
Want to plug in more than 1 appliance.

or should I just go for a 3 port homeplug http://www.faculty-x.net/200av-3pe.htm £60 pair

I have these, I think they were a tenner more last time posted. Work perfectly. No issue in setting them up.
#22
If you google facaulty-x they supply similar 200mb AV homeplugs with 3 ports on the bottom, useful for places near the TV with multiple devices all requiring an ethernet connection. The 3 port is not passthrough.

yea i have mine connected to an 8 port switch and it works fine.
#24
Yes you can!

Each unit will act as a receive & transmit device within the same Local Area Network (LAN). There's normally a "sync" button you press on each unit that gives you 30-60 seconds or so, to go around and press the synch button on each unit, regardless if you have 2,3,4,5 or 6 units. Within that sync time window they match up with each other and agree a random triple DES encryption key, which prevents your neighbours joining your LAN from their mains supply!

They work really well delivering 100MB Full Duplex which actually provides a max bandwidth of 200MB.

is this possible:

Router > Ethernet cable > Homeplug in normal 3 pin socket > Houses internal wiring > Homeplug in normal 3 pin socket > Ethernet cable > Wireless Router > ps3 via ethernet / wlan for laptop / ethernet to 2nd pc

It should do as long as the wireless router is set to AP mode only so it doesn't do any actual routing.

I have 4 homeplugs in use on one ring main. One connected to the router, one for my blu-ray player in the lounge, one for my desktop pc in the study, one in my sons bedroom which supplys a netgear five port switch which then runs his desktop pc, ps3, separate blu-ray player and internet on his tv and they all work perfectly and far more reliably than wifi.
#28
Thanks for your reply. Could I plug in the ports switcher in the passthrough socket on this homeplug when I'm using it?

Just had BT installed yesterday and wireless strength down from 5 to 3 bars.
Have ordered these in the hope it stops crashing as its doing my head in.
Get an external antenna, a separate Wifi router or a repeater - that is much more useful than power line.

You only need one connected to a router and just sync the others. I have 4 (2 x twin packs), one to the router, one in bedroom for 2nd Xbox, one in Garage for desk where i work from home and another spare to use in the house when i can work in there if the kids aren;t around.

They have been faultless for me and i highly recommend them. They are reliable, pretty much plug and play, and don't get hot like others can apparently.

Not sure I agree with that - these are excellent - I have 4 of them on the go streaming hi def films from my nas all round the house- their excellent - no signal drop out - no wires- well worth it - wireless is a bit more hit and miss and certainly not good enough to stream large volumes of data that you would need for films.

If using an extension lead I believe you should avoid one with surge protection as it interferes with the signal

You will get better results if you plug directly into the wall socket instead of an extension lead. It actually says this in the manual. That there answers your question as to why pay more for pass through ones. When there is limited sockets, you can plug this straight in the wall, then plug the extension lead into this......

By way of illustration (and bearing in mind we're still renovating)

This is the broadband coming into the attic into the Billion BIPAC on the left hand side.

The connections to this router are:

1) A NAS fileserver for my backups and pics etc

2) A fixed ethernet cable that runs physically to one room (it was very easy to slot in for that one)

3) And highlighted, 200Mb Homeplug #1. With that homeplug in place, I can tap into the broadband connection from any socket anywhere in the house.

http://i51.tinypic.com/34r940l.jpg


This is a connection to a net-enabled DVD player so we can watch the iPlayer etc, in the snug. Bit of a mess of cables but I'll tidy that

http://i56.tinypic.com/30c1t9s.jpg


And finally my office

The single homeplug is connected to:

1) a wireless router, which allow broadband access to a

2) VOIP service,

3) a networked printer and

4) my PC.

There's another identical homeplug just across the office plugged directly into the back of Mrs Sean2k's PC to give it access.

The black lump in the middle is just a standard UPS

Oh aye. But hopefully it reinforces the point that it's just like having a long cable - you can put whatever you like on the end of it.

Sean - the wife would divorce me with that amount of cables - just bought this http://www.coolest-products.com/television/flexiview-android-2-2-iptv-box-with-1ghz-samsung-cortex-a8-cpu to get real web browsing on all the TVs networked by the homeplugs (just one to try it out so far) - the wired mess is increasing but you are in a league all of your own :0)

At the minute, the bluray player is great for iplayer/ilovefilm but hopeless for live streams - PS3 does the trick there, but it's a lot clumsier.

How are you getting on with your new toy? The specs looked a bit off - the resolution isn't HD according to the text. Any reviews anywhere?

Cheers
