Thought this was a superb price for a twin pack; they were on here not long ago at £19.99 and did really well.

Make the most of your internet ready devices with a fast and stable wired connection from the Netgear PL500-199UKS Powerline Adapter Kit.

Wired connection, anywhere

The PL500 sends a network signal through the electrical ring circuit of your house, effectively turning any power socket into an internet access point, no matter how far from your router it may be.

Capable of speeds of up to 500 Mbps, it's ideal for connecting demanding devices such as Smart TVs, media streamers and games consoles.

Simple set up

Setting up is easy and requires little more than plugging the adapters into spare plug sockets, with one by your router and the other anywhere you choose. From there, simply connect you preferred network ready device directly to the adapter for a fast, secure internet connection.

The PL500 Powerline Adapter Kit comes with two 2 metre Ethernet cable, giving you all you need to create a fast, stable powerline home network.

Expand your wired network to anywhere in your home with the Netgear PL500-199UKS Powerline Adapter Kit.

These are good but the problem i had with mine is I had to resync the NAT for the DMZ in order to avoid TCF of the edge firewall thus integrating one-to-one bandwidth, causing strange fluctuations around the quantum inverted core.

I had a similar problem. They interfered with the flux capacitor and I ended up in 1995 and my broadband modem started dialling on the phone to get the Internet working. I adjusted a few settings and returned to 2014

We really need Gigabit ethernet port av500's to be this price. Pointless buying these with 10/100 interface.

Didn't get it?
Most av500 powerline adapters have 10/100 ethernet ports, like av200's.
So you can't ever reach 500mbps, more like 60mbps (maximum).

You do realise this is a deals website, so the majority of people won't understand about edge computing, network translations, DMZs etc so stop trying to come across all intelligent and high and mighty. You come across as a douche who probably picked up half of that from watching the Big Bang theory.

These home plugs are designed to be plug and play, they do that job well enough. End of story.

I've always wondered why these faux 500mbps home plugs don't get more scrutiny from the likes of the asa. Clearly a user can never achieve the full speed if the i/o is limited to 100mbps regardless of the internal transfer rate, at the least they should be forced to print a warning on the box advising of the limitation. It's like selling a car with an engine capable of going 200mph but digitally locking it to 70mph and not telling the buyers that's the case.

As above your quote. Most people don't have a clue about it. They just buy the product with the highest number and be done with it.

Thanks for letting me know about the BT ones - ordered

Once you realise that "500Mbps PLC rate" is purely marketing nonsense, and has absolutely no correlation with actual network speeds, you won't be disappointed by these.

These have 10/100mbps ethernet ports so you'll never get the full advertised 500mbps.

You will be if you're buying this to max out a connection > 60Mbps.

You will be lucky to hit over 80 no matter what ports they have

Many thanks.

Answered my own question : YES RTFM!!


From the manual:
Install Your Powerline Adapter
The following procedure describes how to add a
Powerline adapter to your existing Powerline
network. Repeat this procedure for each
Powerline adapter that you want to add.
 To add a Powerline adapter to your
existing Powerline network:
1 Plug your Powerline adapter into a power
outlet.
2 Set up security on your Powerline adapter to
add it to your existing Powerline network.
a Press the Security button for 2 seconds.
b Press the Security button on one of the
other Powerline adapters in your
existing network for 2 seconds.
Both buttons must be pressed within 2
minutes.
Note: Do not press the Security button
on the Powerline adapter until installation
is complete and the adapters are
communicating with each other
(indicated by the blinking Powerline
LED). Pressing this button too soon can
5
temporarily disable Powerline
communication. If Powerline
communication is disabled, use the
Factory Reset button to return the
Powerline adapter to its factory default
settings.
3 Connect devices to your Powerline adapter.
You can connect a device, such as a router
or a computer, to the Ethernet port on the
bottom of the Powerline adapter.

Will this fit the lighter socket in my DeLorean?

Thanks for pointing out the limitations of not getting full whack, I'm all for being educated. Was always wondering whether I need some of these.
