Remember to go to Amazon's link which you see on the right hand side of the page.

Linking always seems to take you to Eclipse as the seller. :/

Nice price I have voted hot and I own a couple myself. Good for basic Internet connection but no use for streaming HD movies despite manufacturers claims.

I have some dead spots for my WIFI in the house due to the distance from the modem. Out living room is a particular problem. Is this the answer?

I bought those for my ps3 to stream video from nas, do you say it won't do the job?
Gunny thing about wireless: when I swap ps3 to my xbox360 the xbox streams with no problems wirelessly , but putting ps3 in the same place it it would stream but with freezes.... ps3 wireless is rubish,

Presumably the transmitter and receiver have to be on the same ring main? Our upstairs sockets are on a different circuit to the downstairs ones

Not with these 200mbps plugs. I have them all over the house they work over different circuits and even different consumer units ! We have one working in the attic via 2 different consumer units !

Yes polug one into your router and stick thge other one in the room you have the deadspot and you will have a high spped wired ethernet connection - its like diredctly connedcting something to your router. You can also get home plug wifi range extenders. Our router is in the basement we got no decent wifi signal on the second floor or atic so I got a home plug ranger extender which provided as seperate wifi connection for the floors effect via these adpaters.

I have an Acer Revo r3610 & XBMC setup, this streams movies from a NAS wirelessly but buffers quite a bit. I am hoping this will solve the problem, i will post the quality of signal on the movies after i have received them and set them up.

I have a set-up with a pair of the ebuyer 200mps. 20 year old wiring, different ring mains. The utility usually indicates 150-180 Mb/s for the unit-unit connection. Last night an internet speed check indicated 37 Mb/s, so God knows what the internal PC-PC network throughput might be.

A word of warning: the units & the connection seem pretty stable, but the utility falls over for fun.

Thanks for that. My current Wifi keeps dropping out on my main PC so might give these a try.
#12
Good price for 200meg, but would rather pay the extra few quid to get the ones with pass-through from ebuyer...
#13
Bear in mind most of your routers will have a max network speed of 100meg.
So unless you have a gbyte router, (& gig network adaptors on your computer, you will be limited to that.

Something to think about before buying any homeplug adaptors, you may get a visit from OFCOM as these devices do not comply with current Electromagnetic Compatibility specifications and cause severe interference to other radio users.

If a nearby radio user makes a complaint, OFCOM will force you to stop using these devices so you may be wasting your money!!!!!

You stand more chance seeing the pixies at the bottom of the garden than getting a visit from OFCOM over this. Think about it for 0.00001 second then move onto relevant decision making.

Yeah- Offcom can be seen going around the streets all the time attempting to find out who is using Homeplugs- are you an amateur radio enthusiast?
These 200mps units (or at least the Solwise ones I have) do not have a problem streaming HD video.

Over the past 12 months Ofcom has received 143 individual PLT interference complaints; all from radio enthusiasts. Of these 121 have been investigated and referred to the apparatus supplier who has resolved 104. The solutions employed include replacing the apparatus, hard wiring and conventional wireless alternatives.
All of the complaints relate to the inability to receive radio transmissions in the High Frequency (HF) band (3 to 30MHz).
There are many other users of the HF Band including long range aeronautical and oceanic communications, the Ministry of Defence and international broadcasters. Ofcom has not received complaints of interference to these services.


This is OFCOMS own report- so out of hundreds of thousands sold 121 investigations- unless you have a radio ham two or three doors away, don't worry about the scaremongering.

Hello all - been thinking of getting these things for a while now but must admit I'm not a tech head by any means. I have a PC in my loft and my wireless router is in the living room (two storeys below). The signal in the loft is pretty weak and I will also want to use a laptop up there occasionally. My question is - are these two adaptors all I need to set up the wired network from living room to loft? Do I simply plug in my router to one of these and my laptop or PC power supply to the other one in the loft? Many thanks in anticipation for your replies.
#19
Same question as i asked the last lot that came up, would these work in 2 seperate buildings that are on different meter's? We both use the same wires off the pole, but i am looking at networking accross from where the net access is into the other building and wifi is bit of a pain...
#20
I've just seen a video on ebay where it's proven these things will transmit from one circuit to another, making them radios.
Highly highly illegal, and not just radio hams complaining now, they have been detected interfering with DAB and civil aviation, if the Civil Aviation Authority gets on to these they are history.
I'll stay away thanks.

Where on earth are you getting information from to come to this conclusion? Here is what Ofcom concluded:

On the evidence, Ofcom has not so far found that there is a breach of the EMC essential requirements. Ofcom has therefore decided against taking further enforcement action at this time. Ofcom is working together with Comtrend and BT to reduce any negative effects in individual cases and we support them in doing so.
It is recognised that EMC compliant equipment may still, in certain circumstances, have the capacity to cause interference to other radio communications equipment. This may happen due to the manner in which it is installed or operated.
Evaluating the complaints received and the evidence so far obtained, Ofcom has concluded that there does not at present appear to be significant public harm arising from this situation.


There are hundreds of thousands of these in use. There are hundreds of thousands of DAB radios running no problem - in my house, next door's house a good example. The only people who have issues are the small number of radio hams who put out scare stories and try to challenge the use of them. They have lost the battle- these are used by millions throughout the world. Sorry mate, but they will not be banned, they are not even illegal never mind 'Highly highly illegal' (what tosh- so every major electronic retailer is a law breaker are they?) and they are wonderful- so much better than wifi- as more people discover them they are ditching wifi and buying these.

can anyone who got this tell me if it has EURO plug or UK only?

You can either use your own "figure-of-8" mains lead, or attach the supplied clip-on adaptor. Amazon are usually very good at sending the correct version of their products for the UK so you should get it with a UK adaptor.

The picture may make it clearer how it works. This is for the Euro version, obviously:

True, install these devices and you can't use DAB radios in yr house and neither can your neighbours!!!


Simply rubbish. I have a DAB radio running next to a powerline adapter. The radio tells me "Sig Quality 100".

It's the newer Gigabit versions that cause problems with DAB, the older ones just cause problems with the HF band.
