Afternoon,

After weeping at the price of an Xbox 360 wireless networking adapter (60 quid!) I've been scouring for cheaper alternatives. If you already have a router or ethernet modem then this will work for you :)

Details:

REDUCED TO CLEAR - Wireless networking NOW ONLY £9.99It's the ultimate in home networking! Instead of trailing wires and cables across your house then finding you're a foot short anyway, why not use your home's own electrical wires for connectivity?

It's incredibly easy to use. Just plug one of the Ethernet adapters into an available electrical socket and connect to your computer's modem or router using an Ethernet cable. Then plug the other Ethernet adapter into a second socket, anywhere in the house, and connect to the device you want to share your broadband connection. It's that simple!

Home networking over your mains wiring!
With the Homeplug Ethernet Adapter, you're no longer tied to your telephone socket when you want to use the internet. Connect from your laptop anywhere in your home, or even in the garden using an extension cable. You can also use your Ethernet connection to share printers, scanners or other such devices.

If you have two PCs in the house, why not play a game over your new Ethernet connection? With a gamer on each machine, you can compete in any game that can be played over a LAN (local area network). Frag your buddy in the latest first-person shooter, or leave him eating your dust in your favourite racer.

100% secure encryption
Best of all, it's 100% secure. Information transferred between the two Ethernet adapters is encrypted as it travels across your household electrical wires, so there's no chance of anyone hacking into your internet account and using your bandwidth.

Features & Specifications:

Two Ethernet adapters, two Ethernet cables and a utility and documentation CD supplied
Frequency Band: 4.3Mhz to 20.9Mhz
Works with any OS that has TCP/IP support
PC file and application sharing
Wireless LAN extension
AV streaming and transfer
Shared broadband internet access
Printer and peripheral sharing
Network cameras LAN extension

they work through the mains wiring within the house ...so no ;-)
#6
Very cheap price but does not mention anywhere what speed they can cope with.

No, it has to be on the same ring main, so sadly this sometimes doesn't even work in some houses with separate circuits for upstairs/downstairs or even different rooms.

I did notice that, however I think Homeplugs generally are either 14Mbps, 85Mbps or 200Mbps

Even the lowest would suffice for a 360 so I'm not to worried at that price. However for large file transfers it would be worth finding out. :)

These look like one of the Solwise Homeplug models but it does not tell you the speed.
#10
Site appears to have no SSL of it's own. Bit worrying.
#11
Is this for one or a pair?

The pair
#13
Apologies - there is SSL after registration form. the words chocolate and fireguard spring to mind
#14
Pair it says
#15
Technically you could connect every third house in your street up (well in theory on a 3 phase),not that you'd want to though :thinking:
#16
Thanks for this been after one of these but they are around £40 everywhere XX
#17
Excellent deal.

I could not resist. I ordered one :-)

Thanks to the OP

Heat and REP added
#18
Probably the older 18meg system but will do for most ppl. ordered :)
#19
Looks great - would love to know the speed tho!

Anyone else think this is an ok deal?

Yes, need to know the speed before buying.

Well look at it this way in a few minutes this deal will hit the 100 degrees, soon it will be in the HOT page and the stock will finish before you get to know that.

Then we are going to receive this and will post " it's XXX Mbps" and you will get really annoyed because you wanted one but did not ordered when you could.

It has happen to me a few times and I can tell you is very frustrating. Worst case scenario if is not the speed you want you can always sell it here.

Remember the next chepaest is probably £30 or £40 and I think that's just for one whilst here we are getting the pair.

Do you want to still wait to know the speed? :whistling:
#22
bought. at this price, it's worth a try, even if it ends up sitting in my computer bits box.
#23
Called customer services - it's 14Mbps.
Still a very good price - but not the speed I need!
#24
is this a wifi extender aswell?
#25
firstly excuse my ignorance ..... im not that clued up with such things!

I have a netgear wireless router and run a wireless laptop from it with no bother, I also have a dongle in the back of the wii also making that wireless for online mario kart, whats to stop me putting this (or another) wireless dongle in the back of the xbox 360 aswell?

I always intended to do this but never bothered as yet, will that work or do I need these instead?

The 360 wont work with a standard wireless dongle - but can be used with a gaming access point - or these. With these you would ethernet from the 360 to one of these and then ethernet from the other one to the router.

The Wii is wireless already, you don't need a dongle for it. If you buy two of these (they come as a pair), connect 1 to your router, connect the other to the 360 you'll be online - simple. I paid over £100 for 3 of these about 18 months ago - they're well worth it.

60 quid for the wireless adapter for the xbox 360 why do you need a dongle into the wii isnt it part of the console
#29
I was about to buy but I want to use to stream video to my xbox. I doubt this would handle it.

the only usb wireless adaptor that works for the 360 is the official one for the 360, otherwise you have to use the wired network port in the 360 directly into a router, via a range extender or one of these homeplug systems and then connect to your router
#31
What speed can these connect at 14 mbps 85 or 200 ?
#32
I can vouch for these, homeplugs are fantastic! :D

???????

Please enlighten us!
#34
14 mbps I just phoned a bit slow for most things really. They will realistically transfer at probably 6mbps
#35
I just rung MaxTV and these are the 14mbps version.

They would be ok for standard SD video (divx/Xvid which rarely peaks much above 1-2mbps . forget about HD streaming with them though.

(saying that forget about HD streaming on the 360 altogther it's crap at it)
#37
Very cheap!

The Xbox will only let you use the official 360 wireless adaptor which is around £40, this is a much cheaper way of getting your 360 hooked up.
#38
These things are great, My friend bought one for his laptop. But if you have them on more than 3 hours they get very very hot! lol so Hot price from me!
#39
forgetting media streaming - will these handle xbox360 gaming without lag? or are they not up to it?
#40
Ordered as for £13.89 these are nearly a quarter of the price of the next cheapest - alright it's only 14Mbps but forthe majority this will service there needs.
