I think this shows that some people don't understand retail.

Took the very words out of my mouth...

Looks like it needs to be hardwired into a router or an existing AP.

If that's the case it's no good for me. I'd prefer a wireless extender.

Going by trends on extenders, it would appear that's an ethernet port for connecting any wired devices to the network.

Think I might give this a go.

does anyone know how does it work?

For those who miss out, search a popular auction website for "Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender" and you can pick these up for around the same price, maybe a bit less.

Also this 24-hour deal is "On promotion until 29/07/2012".

Yep. A bit of research shows the ethernet port acts as a bridge for localised equipment like home theatres etc, so this device looks fine :)

Their regular price is £59.99

That is exactly 3 times the price!!!

I can't even bear to think how much Maplin pay for them. oO

Which is why I tend to avoid Maplins whenever possible. They sell cheap electronics with stupidly high price tags.

I didn't bother with this in the end, after I saw they were being sold elsewhere for the same price. Also there are plenty of alternatives on other sites like Amazon that don't smother the socket.

Exactly £7 more than the identical item's rock bottom Ebay price for one with UK plug, shipped from Hong Kong with perhaps 2 weeks for delivery. This item does not need a LAN cable connection to work. The socket is used for initial setup. You place it just within range of your existing WiFi router and it throws the signal a deal further, e.g. into the garden or to other end of house. One of these in the loft might get your WiFi signal past think walls for example. The Amazon reviews seem to indicate it is fit for purpose.
