Electrical power is supplied and distributed around your house at 50Hz. However, the wires are actually capable of carrying a range of other frequencies which can be 'tuned-in' using appropriate equipment. Powerline Homeplug technology takes advantage of this unused bandwidth of the electrical wiring in the home.

The signal can travel between floors of a house even when they are on a different ring main, as long as they are on the same consumer/fuse-box your side of the meter.

Works with just about anything with an Ethernet port and is driverless unless you need the encryption utility (supplied on CD-Rom with each pack).
PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, Xbox including Xbox 360 and media adapters/players. all just plug in and are away.
If you do manage to find an Ethernet device it will not work with you are welcome to send them back for a full refund. No quibbles.

Compatibility: Homeplug 1.0 & homeplug 1.0 Turbo compliant, these inter-operate with other homeplug models that are to this standard, i.e. Actiontec, Arkados, Aztech, Belkin, Cameo, C-net, Cisco, Devolo, Dynamode, Echostar, Econnect, Fujitsu, Gigafast, Intellion, Lea, Netgear, Vesenet & ZyXEL at both 14mbps & 85mbps, got another make or model and not sure, please just ask: [email protected]
However: Homeplug 1.0 & 1.0 turbo do not work with Homeplug AV at 200mbps, you can have both on the same circuit and they will communicate over each other, i.e have two networks at different speeds but will not talk to each other.

Just plug the adapter into the power socket on the wall, and connect any Ethernet-equipped device to the adapter, put another adapter in the location you are trying to reach and bingo, it then simply converts the network signal to a signal that can be sent down your electrical wiring and then at the other end converts it back again.

Once your computers are connected to the network, they can share resources like printers and storage space, and all kinds of files -- music, digital pictures, and documents. With up to 85Mbps data rates, you can run streaming video and VoIP applications..

PLEASE NOTE: You need at least two to make a network (one each end of the link)
But you can add more than two to the network, Ten is a practical limit but upto 254 in theory.

I have a pair of these, which I got from ebay for about £48 for a pair. They are excellent. I had to upgrade from wifi as it just couldnt cut it when it came to streaming HD video.
My homeplugs obtain about 70Mbps which isnt bad considering theoretical max is 85. I take the output from my downstairs Homeplug, put it into a network switch, and from that feed an xbox, an xbox360, a network hard drive, and now my new PopcornHour media player......I would never go back to wifi now.

Voted hot because this is a good deal when compared to similar products.

Don't forget you have to buy 2 though to complete the network...or more if you have more than one network device.

IMHO I think a wireless "N" network is a better option. Faster and just as easy to set up if a little more expensive.

£49.84 for two, which is cheaper than LinITX, who can in fact be cheaper on other Homeplug combinations. Swings and roundabouts.

Would this work for me?

We have two fuses boxes now as we have an extension to the house.

One fuse box is connected to the other.

I need to use a socket connected to one fuse box and another socket connected to another other fuse box.


TIA

It arrived quickly & well packaged so I would say they are reliable.

Hmm...prices do seem competitive!!! so HOT!!!

Can you tell me which courier did they use with their Std Delivery at £4.95? Or is it just Royal Mail???

Many thanks in advance. :)

These are pretty much the same price now, so probably worth a reminder.
Can anyone explain the difference between the white and black 85mbps, which seem to be significantly differently priced (25% or so) but to be identical, other than that the black ones come with a 1.8m ethernet lead, whereas the leads with the white ones are only 1m ??
Any further reports on how they work in practice ?
