Establishing a powerline network requires at least two PLC adapters for the first time, the TP-LINK Powerline Ethernet Adapter Starter Kit is good for initially setup which including two same adapters -TL-PA201. It takes advantage of your home´s existing electrical wiring to create or extend a network. With no additional wiring required, users can simply plug the TL-PA201 into existing power sockets and establish networking infrastructure in a flash. With data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps, you can expand your current home power lines network and experience blinding transfer speeds. Now, enjoy HD video streaming, online gaming, VoIP or any other high bandwidth intensive tasks such as multiple downloads available in minutes instead of hours.

Up to 200Mbps, Ideal for High Definition Video Streaming
With advanced HomePlug AV technology, TL-PA201 provides users with stable and high-speed data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps. TL-PA201 features an easy-to-use interface for configuring Quality of Service options, supports multiple streams of HD video as well as popular Voice over IP (VoIP) throughout the home or office.

Twin Pack Design
The PLC connection is transmitting the data through the electric wire between two outlets, so it at least requires two PLC adapters pluged into the outlet to transform the data streaming. With twin pack design, the starter kit ensures to establish a powerline network for the first time.

NO New Wires, Just Plug And Play
No configuration required, just connect your PC to a powerline adapter and plug it into a power outlet and instantly transform your household power grid into a fully functional network, with no need to drill through the walls and climb through the attic or cellar to install network cables. Messy cabling and wireless dead spots are now things of the past.

Green Product with Lower Power Consumption
The TL-PA201, a new-generation Powerline Adapter, consumes less power when compared with existing Powerline Ethernet Adapters. Moreover, when there is no Ethernet link, it will automatically switch from its regular "working" power mode to standby mode that reduces energy waste by over 65%* when compared to adapters without this feature.

Pair Button for Easy Network Security
Simply push the Pair button on the adapters and then you can set up a hassle-free Powerline network within minutes, which features 128-bit AES encryption for network security and data protection.

Don't get how this works...what is it / whats it used for?

Simple terms. In my case, my wireless signal is poor in one room in my house. Plug one of these in and connect it to my router. Plug the other one in room with poor signal and the broadband will be perfect to any device I plug into it.

its making a 'wireless' connection between devices by using your electrical wires.
like running a great big piece of ethernet cable around the house.

It creates a wired network connection which is faster and more reliable than a wireless connection using your mains electric cable in our house. you just plug into your standard electrical sockets and they have ethernet network cable sockets to plug your devices into

I have a couple of devolo 200Mbp's plugs are they compatible with these, anyone know??

I think this is what I'm looking for to get the internet content on a Sony Bravia TV.

Do I just need an ethernet cable to run from homeplug to TV?

comes with 2 x 1.5m cat5 cables, i believe


I think you're right. Thinking about it I might need 3, one for the xbox.

These are pretty good. I use them to take internet upto PC on 2nd floor from Router on 1st floor.

Much faster than wireless, and gives a rock solid connection
#9
Any need to worry about how the wiring is set up? Need to improve signal in conservatory, this having been built well after the house itself, the electrics would be on a different mains circuit?
#10
If they're on a different circuit, this will be no good for you. Think of it like one long extended ethernet cable which uses your electricty cables as the extension.

Alternatively, pick up a BT Vision box on eBay and that's got a couple of Comtrends packaged in it :)

I had been pondering getting one of these for a while for my desktop which id in another room on the other side of the house. I had a wifi USB tiny dongle thing surplus to requirements and tried it in the desktop last week and it works superbly. So few things dont come without Wireless capability that I dont think I need this now.

In my case the wireless router used to be in the front of the house where the computer is. Even though my extension is on a different wiring loop I used the plugs to get the wireless router closer to the extension so I can now get a wireless connection in there. It's also closer to the centre of the house and I get a better all round reception.

It depends whether you have somewhere near the conservatory to stash your wireless router.
#15
Is it possible to plug a wireless router into one of these to extend the wireless signal around the rest of the house and use the ethernet ports on the connected router for xbox 360 and sky anytime+? Sorry if that sounds complicated

Its a data transfer device so whatever you plug in it will do what its told I guess.

So isnt it the router you need to check out as opposed to these?

Not quite true.
These can be used across mains loops as long as there is no phase change. This is why they are secure within a household - even though the house may have several ring mains. The signal cannot pass beyond the meter (due to the phase change on the external side of the meter).
It's not guaranteed of course, but there should be no problem. I've been using mine across ring mains for a few years - started with the 14Mbps, then the 85 and finally the 200's. Only problem I ever had was some noisy DC power supplies (moved them to the other side of the Homeplug and all was well).

thx

I can't see that anyone has mentioned it but I don't think that these work on an extension cable ie they must be plugged directly into a wall socket.
Plse correct me if I'm wrong.

They should be. DeVolo are also HomePlug.

Just for info: HomePlug isn't compatible with UPA. Not sure if 200 is backward compatible with 100 (I recall that there are problems).
#24
These devices are fantastic, i've been using them in hotel installs for quite some time now (to get wifi/broadband accross large buildings), they even come in wireless flavours as well.
#25
Are there any well priced ones which output a wifi signial on the other end as well as offering an ethernet port?

Hey guys,

Totally new to this product concept so sorry if I sound really dumb.

My household has several games consoles and TV's that need internet. So, basically, there are about 4 devices I need to connect through a wired connection. 2 Playstations and two Sony Bravia TV's. So does that mean I buy this item twice? I'm confused because it says this is a starter pack and I'm thinking maybe it comes with one homeplug that you MUST connect to the router and the other to the device which you want to get connected to the Internet for example the PS3 console.

I'd appreciate if someone could clear that up for me. I have Googled but it was all very confusing.

Many thanks in advance!!

no, it creates a wired network, not wireless

possibly, depends if they homeplug or homeplug AV (these are not compitable...they wont see other but you can run a homeplug network and homeplug av network side by side)

personally id always by the same make to ensure best compatibility as you dont know to what extent these companies have implemented the homeplug av standard

not true.....whilst you are correct as thats what the manufacturers state thats only because they covering themselves

2 of my 4 netgear homeplug av are plugged into extension leads and they work fine

the manufacturer just doesnt guarantee quality and reliability if you plug them in extension leads

@ compeetor - it's a "starter pack" because it contains the minimum number of homeplugs to create a connection, you can buy them as singles to add to an existing homeplug setup.
To my knowledge there isn't a "maste" one that connects to your router & a "slave" that you connect to your devices - the pair of homeplugs are the same & as a result interchangeable.
Have a search for a 4 pack, sometimes works out cheaper than 2 x 2 pack.

Pretty sure mine do, they aren't these particular ones but they are of the 200mbp flavour

To those looking to extend the wireless range, Dlink are doing a package that includes 2 homeplugs and a Wireless N extender homeplug for about £89. I've not used it myself but it seems perfect for some of the issues mentioned in earlier posts (someone mentioned a wireless connection in the conservatory plus a wired point for TV internet which is exactly what I need it for).

Have these (two packs) and has really sorted my streaming between PC and PS3. Rock solid, HD content and all.

Thank you for clearing that up for me. I got more from your response than I got spending hours Googling away. Your input is greatly appreciated!! Thanks again.

Ive not checked these ones, but with the comtrend ones I have (2 pairs), one comes as the 'input' (connects to the router) and one comes as the 'output' (connects to your device). However, you can easily reconfigure the 'input' one to be an 'output' by simply a button press. I have done this so have by my router, and an output at my TV and another output upstairs.

I imagine these would operate similiarly.
