Seems a decent price for these, heat added.

Best price that I can find anywhere, you need to select 5 day delivery to get this price.

We had a loft extension done a few years ago which had new wiring connected to a new fuse box. The router is situated downstairs using the old wiring and old fuse box. Would these still work if one was plugged into the router (old wiring circuit) and the other one plugged into the new wiring circuit upstairs? There is only 1 electric feed into the house so the circuits must be joined somewhere.
#4
Should be fine, as long as they are fed by the same mains feed.
#5
I just upgraded from the 85mbps to the 200mbps.

I wouldnt recommend the 85mbps for anyone streaming DVD rips or Videos to their playstation or TV.

They are fantastic for ONLINE gaming for PC, PS3 and creating a LAN between all your devices.
#6
Do you think these would work with a 4 port switch, i.e, the one output from the adapter to the switch can then service my xbox360, ps3 and Wii hooking up as a LAN? Should do ?:idea:

yes, should work

good question - i had a loft conversion done 4 yrs ago - bought the netgear pair from amazon about 3 weeks ago due to thick solid walls in my house , very bad reception upstairs - even worse in attic - but to answer your question - YES it does, to my amazement it works perfectly :thumbsup:
#10
If your electricty works then these work. Real plug and play. Very simple.

I've heard one case of these not working in years and years and it tunred out the guy was using his neighbour's electricty supply in part of his house.

Easy-peasy lemon squeezy.

Im thinking of getting these Powerline Adaptors dont know whether to go for 85mbs or 200mbps, im only using it for PC gaming and heavy downloading, no streaming.
Whats best to go for and are the cheap ones as good as the branded ones?
#12
Indeed, I could not believe how easy these are to use, really " Plug and Play ".

Offer is today only.;-)

Yes, I use a similar set up

I'd recommend anyone pay a bit extra and go for the 200mps units though

Do these require the plugs to be on the same ringmain?

No, any circuit from the mains supply will work OK.
#17
Can I get an adaptor or anything to use these as a telephone extension, does anyone know?
#18
would these work in conjunction with other makes? i currently have a set of netgear plugs (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00167D96S/ref=oss_product) and want an extra single plug (2 would be good to have a spare) but arent sure if they would work
#19
i use them to stream both 1080p and 720p compressed video (mainly MKV's) with no problem what so ever. If you have good wiring and there is little interferance, everyone should be capable of doing this. People who can't stream dvd rips must have some serious issues with their setup!

An extra tip is to make sure your network is on FULL duplex and non of this 'auto' crap a lot of people leave it on.

If you can get electricty in one area and another area in the same property then these work.

No maybes, could bes, should bes or might bes. The signal goes through the mains so it's no more difficult or complicated really than plugging in a lamp. Both sockets are the same too so it doesn't matter how you mix them.

I use them in 2-3 rooms because they are rock sold 100% of the time because -as I said- if you have an electric supply = they work.
#21
Do they have to be plugged into the wall socket, or can you put them into multi-plug extension chords?
#22
are the compatible with netgear plugs?

I stream DVD ISO's using 85's and have no problems at all. A lot of it is down to i) the wiring in your house and ii) whether any of the homeplugs are on extension blocks.

Not to be confused with the ever so similar "Homeplugs"."Powerline" is one industry standard and "Homeplug" is the other, so only compatible with other Powerline products.Very much like Betamax vs VHS.

PC GAMING AND Heavy Downloading these are perfect...thats what I used. 85mbps Zyxel ones.

I was playing COD/GTA4 online via PS3. Halo and Counter Strike source on the PC and these 85mbps were perfect. For the other guy asking...if you have a router lying around you can a LAN in your bedroom.....basically plug one CAT5e from the router into LAN1 port on the spare router...then plug ur other devices into 2 and 3 and 4 ports and walah...you have utilised a router as just a hub basically.

However...i encountered a problem because of all my rips and videos....i use some software called PS3 media server on my PC which allows me to play Full DVD rips over my network from PC to my PS3 and therefore on my TV. The 85mbps were just causing them to jutter and jerk.

Last week literally I bought the 200mbps ones and the problem vanished. I paid £50 for them though.

Didn't know there was a difference - just thought it was a different name for the same things.. Well, you learn something new every day!

Any idea what the difference between the two is, technically?

Electricty = they work.

That's the only instructions needed in the box except you put a normal router cable (ethernet) that you put in a PC, laptop, XBox etc into one of the plugs and then err... plug it in. Then anywhere else you have electric you take the other plug (or plugs -you can use multiples) and errr... plug it into the electric and take the ethernet cable out of it and errr... plug it in.

Just plug and play. Literally. For a change.

That's it. They come with short ethernet cables (like you get with your router) but you can use any length that's for the home (10m, 15m etc).

Electricty = they work.

Hope I'm not repeating myself :thinking: :p

Thanks nickelarse rep added :thumbsup:

10m ethernet [url]www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-Cat5-Cable-Snagless-Moulded/dp/B00006464P/[/url] £5.05inc.

eBuyer sell that too but not as cheap usually.

I use a 30m with one of my plugs as it goes out to the garage and let's me bypass big thick walls.
#31
are these any good for ps3 or would 200mbps be better ?

This is definately not "today only" as I was looking at them on Ebuyer last wednesday at this price.

Couldn't decide between these and the Netgear 4 port ones from Misco for £40

I had these between my PS3 and virgin router/switch and Readynas. Most movies worked fine, but a few (which I'd guess are the higher quality) stuttered.
I put in a very long cable around the skirting board and the stuttering went away - so in my case the answer was a "not 100%".

I'm going to get 200mb ones, you can buy mine if you like;-)

No, it's not true. As long as the chipsets are the same, they should work together. Most brands use Intellon chipsets these days. The other chipset is DS2.
And there is as yet no industry standard. If radio hams have their way, there never will be.
#35
Personally would spend the extra £10 and get 2X Comtrend 200mbit ones from the bay. Just my opinion, nice price never the less.

Even with the comtrend 200mbit ones I have found going through a large ish house that the signal degrades and they struggle coping with 1080p streamed HD content. Fine for XViD and 720p quality though with no stutter. Assume the 85mbit ones would suffer more in my setup albeit if distance is not a factor these may be fine.

Nothing to do with phone extensions.

If you have a PC/Laptop at each end of the connection you could use that for messaging or VOIP though, but not in the way you mean.
There are wireless phone extension systems available, but I don't know if they would interfere with these, and in any case it is a lot easier just to get DECT cordless phones!
#39
Must better to pay another £15 and get the 200mbps plugs IMO. THey offer more flexibility in terms of range and negate wiring issues in most houses. Plus with faster BB comming the realworld transfer speed on these is significantly below even existing bb connections 50 meg Virgin for instance.
