For a 'twin pack'? I doubt it. Maybe a single unit or maybe, just maybe, a 85Mbps set.

Is it better to get the 7dayshop one for £37.99 including delivery as it works out a little bit cheaper?
Which one is better?

Can you use different types of Powerline Adapters together i.e from different manufacturers? Thanks


Yes you can, as long as they are all of the same standard, Homeplug AV (or 200mbps) in this case. You can't mix these with the Comtrend ones, as they are not Homeplug AV.

I'm not sure how I'd use this.
Could I plug one into my wireless router and another one into my PC to get a higher speed connection to my router than the wireless one?

These really worked well for me. Streaming to the living room media centre from my PC upstairs is flawless compared to Wi-Fi. See this web page for details of firmware and other techy stuff. Most of these 200Mbps Powerline adapters all use the same chips so the info is interchangeable across devices

Yes they create a wired network between your router and your pc using mains cabling. Ethernet is more efficient than Wireless.

Looking for these to drop a bit further.
Play had them at £29.99 but then refused to honour the deal
(despite charging my card etc etc, said the supplier had made an error).

The 85mbps ones will have to do in the meantime (which they do do perfectly well, I just like the idea of more headroom for the future)

I'd say you'd have better connectivity with using one of these as Ethernet is better than wireless and its plug and play no need for any set up at all.

Great deal been looking around for one. +Heat

The CD stuff gets installed on your PC, you link one plug to the router/modem router via cable and the item being connected by this network to your router with another cable and another plug-in point (your household ringmains acts as the cable inbetween).

For anyone thinking of purchasing these you should be aware that because of their size they effectively take up two sockets, three if you're daft enough to plug them into the middle of a power strip! They do have a tendency to overheat from time to time, but simply unplugging them for a couple of seconds usually resolves any connection issues. Good price, and they work well, but if I were to start again I'd invest in pass-through plugs.

Although it should be pointed out that you don't need the CD if you don't need to monitor the connection or setup encryption, these will form a connection directly out of the box without the need for software.

Another useless company that deem Northern Ireland to be outside the UK. £10 delivery to NI the same as any other EEC country. Good find OP and not your fault.

If one is directly connected to your router, how many others can be connected to other devices (pcs & consoles) and therefore hard wired to the network?
#24
I use six of these, albeit basic early Homeplug models, all over my house, including connecting my old router to my new one to act as a hub in the kids' games room. They are more solid and reliable than wireless IME, especially in houses/neighbourhoods that cramp the wireless signal. You can have as many as you like BUT the mbps speed is divided by the number of units you have, afaik. Mind you if two kids are on the PS3 and you are streaming a movie over these you won't notice any slowdown - there's plenty of bandwidth.

Bear in mind also that these units do not work very well, or at all sometimes, plugged into extensions with surge protectors. But in regular simple 4-gang extensions they work just fine.

The maximum stated is 10 but I have found that the signal starts to weaken slightly when I have 7 connected. Best to try but I would say 6 would be the maximum.

The GB ones are better and handle up to 8 before signal becomes poor.

You get what you pay for and best to look out for deals as they are expensive at normal price

Just curious as to how much these vary in quality from expensive to cheap. I'm assuming from the product description, ('extra value'), that these are at the bottom rung of the ladder in terms of brand.

If there is little to no real difference in quality then would these be a worthwhile investment taking into account they're about £5 cheaper?

Its the couriers that charges extra for delivery to certain zones not the retailers.

So, can I buy two sets of these and use one unit to plug into my router and the other three into pcs around the house........or do I need to buy separate 'receiver units'??

These will work the way you described i.e. one into the router the others anywhere where you've got a socket.
#36
I'm thinking of buying these but please could someone clarify for me - I have Sky Broadband and am using their router downstairs for wired and wireless networks. I want to connect 2-3 devices to a wired network upstairs. These Powerline units only have one port, but I have an old Netgear wireless G router (DG834G model) which I'm not using any more. If I bought these Powerline units and I plugged the Sky router in downstairs and the Netgear router into the other upstairs, would I be able to use all the 4 ethernet ports on the Netgear router?

Presumably the existing wireless network from the Sky router wouldn't be changed. Would I be able to activate the Wireless signal on the Netgear router and have a second wireless network upstairs? Is that likely to interfere with the speed of the Sky one downstairs?

Thanks

You use one to connect your Sky router to your mains (your network) and use the others to come off that network to link to your PC/laptop/game console etc etc.
#38
Yeah, but if I plug my old Netgear router into the one Powerline plug upstairs, can I then use four devices plugged into it rather than just one?
#39
any thoughts on if two sets of these would work with two xboxes in the same house playing the same game at the same time slightly worried about the amount of data and data confliction?
#40
games tend not to send that much data - if you think about it the game is running on the xbox itself, and and it's only screen and controller commands that are going across the network.

I think they'd work great.
