£2 price drop since I got it back in April/May. Really good devices to have especially for online gaming.
#2
I have four of these. They are brilliant.
#3
Not Bad but ive just brought a Set of 2 200mbps ones of a company on Ebay for £44.99.
#4
I would go for 200mbs ones if you can afford them, but these are still a very good buy. You will wonder why you put up with wireless so long! :-)

I'd go along with that. I've got 200mbs ZyXEL ones throughout and they are superb.
#12
silly question, will these work for transmitting tv or sky reception signal in the same way?

yes these are more than adequate for downloading

These basically allow you to carry network communication through your existing house wiring, allowing you to theoretically place one of these next to your router and then connect it to anywhere there is a plug inside your house. This stops the need for 20metre long CAT5 cables or helps with poor WIFI reception.

I have mine running from my router, through the wiring, to my Xbox 360. I have the 85Mbps one's and will upgrade to the 200Mbps soon.

Think of it as like using your electrical wiring as a big long ether net cable

Same here Emma, I would like to know more, I have read some reviews on Amazon, I 'm still not sure, but this product does sound very very good, we have a Belkin router, a PC, 3 laptops, 2 Xbox's, a PS3 & a Wii console, obviously we are not using them all at the same time, (prob max 2 at a time) but the router is forever loosing it's settings & we have tried everything, even proffesional help & are told interference from other wireless networks in the street is causing all the problems, so we are always loosing internet, would this product solve our problem, if so I will snap it up immediatly, any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

Sorry took so long typing all that out, that some good people already answered, sounds fantastic (I hope)

Here's an example diagram

I intend to connect this to my router and then connect my switch to the homeplug. then connect my PS3, dbox and network drive to the switch. I am asking this because I record form my Dbox to my Pc and I Stream HD 1080p video from my PC to the PS3 and I also play video from my network drive. the only reason I want to use this is just to decluster the 3 network cables I have running to my cabinet otherwise I do not have any problem with the set up.

Homeplug, or otherwise known as powerline is used to create a wired network using your mains electrical circuit, typically instead of a wireless network.

You simply plug one of the devices into a mains plug next to the device you want to network such as a PS3 and then you have to plug another into a mains socket next to your router. You then connect ethernet network cables from the one next to your router into your router and one from the other homplug into say the PS3 and you're networked at a lot faster and at more stable speeds then a wireless connection.

Other advantages are that the data doesn't go beyond your home circuit and can also be encrypted.
#23
Oh, by the sounds of that then, this will not help my problem of my router always loosing it's settings :thinking:

I reckon you need to replace the router?

Maybe contact your ISP and get them to check settings and go through tests first.
#26
No you don't replace your router with them. You use them to 'bridge' your connection from it through your power lines,

My router connects to to the modem, my Homeplug plugs into the powerline and my PC plugs into the other Homeplug upstairs.

I do a lot of downloading and WifFi was maxing out at about 200Kbps because I get a crap connection in my PC room. The homeplugs get me 2800Kbps, which I think is as fast as my internet goes.
#27
There is a good page here about Homeplug devices in general:

http://www.solwise.co.uk/net-powerline-intro.htm
#28
These are very good.

I have four, one plugged into the router, 2 more for pc's and 1 for a video camera.

They work great.
#29
Are these easy to set up? I had to get a techie friend to set up my wireless for me and I hated it - signal varied from none to excellent every few minutes. Eventually I broke the antenna on the little receiver box on my second PC and gave up!
And are they secure? I assume they're more secure than wireless but someone said they aren't as secure as people think, though can't see how.

Literally plug them into the wall and the cables into the pc. That is it.

Thanks for that, a good summing up.

I think these could be handy for me. I'm now running Vista 64 on my new PC and my old Netgear wi-fi USB adapter doesn't have a 64 bit driver. Might as well switch to using this as buy a new adapter. Speeds will probably get a boost as well.

Thanks went for this. Heat & rep added

i have the netgear ones and they are very good but like all network stuff they get nowhere near the quoted marketing bull figures...nearer 50mb/s but its more stable than wireless N which if you are lucky gets to 100mb/s but is mega unstable imo....you only need faster speeds if you sending large files across your own network or you have alot of people on it....if you are a lone user who doesnt use a nas drive then anything over your isp speed is wasted but gives you a bit of future proofing (well, sort of lol)
#34
Thanks for the headsup, my sister cant seem to get a signal with her wireless router in the house for cable for no reason at all. Tried a few models as well

I'm I correct in assuming they are like the ADSL filters but you plug them in electrical sockets, You have one near and connected to your router say upstairs then you have a second one say downstairs by the laptop, then connect via wire from the downstairs socket/adaptor configuration to the laptop. Does anyone know if they work if you connect it to say 5 way plug adaptor - I'm seriously short of power sockets in the computer room. Regards Paul

Exactly.

They say not to use them in adaptors but I do and mine work fine.

I'd change the RF channel the router/ wireless access point is using first, to see if it really is an interference issue.
#40
Was considering these but the real world performance you get isn't quite enough to stream HD quality video with, so I'm stuck with cat5 until the technology improves or maybe a newer n class router/adapter combo might work.
