Don't forget that most routers and integrated ethernet ports on laptops and PC's are only 10/100 you will need a fairly new PC or a 10/100/1000 PCI card and router to make the most of this.

The ethernet port on the units is only 10Base-T/100Base-TX so will not operate any faster on a Gigabit network.

Yes and yes!

Plug it in, away you go.

Perfect timing, just moving house to a place with walls 3 bloody feet thick and I doubt wireless is going to be any good for the 360 any more. Two of these should do the job nicely.

Yes ive got these exact ones, paid about £80 for 2 a few months ago :x.

Plug them in and away you go, these ones are much better than some other homeplugs you can get, they have a huge range. I have one next to our router in the house and the other is in the farm office in a separate building around 100 meters from the house!

They are at there limits at this distance though.

Does this mean next door (or half the street if you live in a row of 2 up 2 downs) could use your broadband through their sockets if they had a plug ?

I've got the latest BT Home Hub, is this ok to use with the above?

I have three floors in my house, do I need three units to use the internet on each floor?
#12
Hello-these sound good-Just wondered what their power consumption might be over a year?

I am tempted with the Max Value 85mpbs on Amazon that was linked to at £40 but at £13 more for the ZyXel ones is it worth it ( just used for Internet browsing)

Thanks

According the manufacturers, the signal shouldn't pass through the electricity meter. So that looks like the neigbours will have to stick to using your unsecured wifi.

You will need 1 of these to take your internet into a mains socket, and 1 for each separate pc/device that you want to use the internet concurrently.

voted hot, just ordered a pair.

No what I mean is our house is detached and it will reach to an outbuilding. Dont think it will work between different houses.

Do these have to be used on the same circuit? I have one circuit for upstairs sockets and a seperate one for downstairs

Really interested in purchasing, few queries.

1) Would they work on the original xbox?
2) Is it one ethernet port per plug?
3) Can you attach a hub/router to one or both to expand the connections?
4) Would they be affected if pluged into a surgeprotector or do they have to be directly into the wall?
#19
hi

do these come with an ethernet cable in the box?

Mine came with 2 ethernet cables but then again I bought a twin pack and not individually like these.

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Yes - you can use the ethernet cable to go from a hub/router into the plug, so I see no reason why it shouldn't work the other way around.
4) No, makes no discernable difference if you use it in an adapter or straight into the wall.

Thanks for that-useful FAQ

Only thing I could not find that I would be interested in is their power consumption/cost

These look good, but.... My cable modem and router are downstairs in the extension. The electrical fuse box for the extension is the newer trip switch type, whereas the fuses for the part of the house where I want to use this are the old fuse wire type. They seem to be independent of each other. Any electrical experts on here think it would work?
Cheers.

Then what's the point of having a 200Mbps transfer rate when it's only fed and only outputs upto 100Mbps?
#29
Top spot, nice one!
#30
Are these compatible with other makes i.e. could I use these with the eConnect HomePlug 85Mbps that I already have? The eConnect site doesn't seem to want to sell them any more :-((

Plugs of different speeds won't connect to one another but they may co-exist on the same wiring.

These plugs support the Home AV standard so will work with other 200Mbps plugs which also support the Home AV standard

I know the £25 per plug price is expired, just wanted to say I ordered yesterday afternoon using cheapest delivery option, super saver 5 days and it arrived this morning :D

Pokey

Because you'll never get near the theoretical maximum that is 200Mb/s - a stock 100Mb/s link is more than fast enough :thumbsup:

Just like wireless, these devices have massive overhead. In the same way you can never see more than ~22Mb/s of throughput from a 54Mb/s "G" Wireless link, you'll never get more than ~halfspeed from a Homeplug device.

Mine too, very impressed!
#35
Just to further add, I have mine all setup, very simple. Had a slight problem where it wouldn't completely detect the network downstairs on my xbox. I changed one of the plugs to be directly connected to the wall and it worked.

Basically I have one upstairs plugged into a surge protector extension connected directly to my hub and one downstairs plugged directly into the wall connected to my xbox. It works perfectly, no lag or anything, streams all types of media perfectly to XBMC from my server upstairs. Can't test HD as it's xbmc but it should be fine. Internet connectivity also works fine.
#36
You may well be impressed but I'm not.
Ebuyer confirmed my order at 9.15am and then over a day later cancelled the order due to lack of stock even though I ordered hours earlier than you.
This is the first and last time I order from them.
In case anyone else was let down too, I found a better deal on Amazon – £24.99 each with free P&P. The only down-side is you have to buy a pair.
