Compact new design with efficient power-saving technology & (apparently) simple to set up.

Ihavealightsaber:
These are for creating a network over your house using your mains plugs. They are useful for large consistent data transfer or where your wireless networking is not good due to thick walls etc..

Plug one:
Computer connects to Plug using network cable - plug into wall socket

Plug two:
Broadband Router (or second computer connects to plug using network cable - plug into wall socket.

These will then use the internal wiring of your house to join (network) the 2 items together, without the expense of fitting network cable across your house.

Thanks for that, I must be getting on a bit as I am still struggling. Why would you want a network around your house, how would u control the children's access?

Super Small Design With the new ultra-compact housing design, TP-LINK TL-PA211 is much smaller than most other 200Mbps Powerline Products. At just 30mm thick and with its high quality, elegant white shell, it almost blends in completely in front of any power outlet and additionally can be placed anywhere in the roo

Could one use multiple pairs to make a complete network in which (for example) a laptop could write to an NAS drive, and a media viewer could access the NAS drive ?

Will this make work with a pair from another manufacturer ??

take the plug away? can't do that easily with wifi or hardwired cat5.
or use one of the many really useful access control services (opendns.org is good)
#13
Off topic slightly but are there such things like these that can send the tv signal around the mains circuit instead of installing extension cables to televisons in different rooms?
#14
On eBay, I can find the TL-PA211, but not the TL-PA21. Whats the difference ?

Typo on Kikatek site - it's actually the TL-PA211 as a look at TP-LINK's website product page will show

Perhaps a stupid question, but with 4 of these can I;
1) connect router "A" to mains circuit
2) connect a laptop to router A (via mains)
3) connect PS3 to router A (via mains)
4) connect a netbook to router A (via mains)

IOW, by plugging the router into one of these (i.e. as per the receiver), can I then connect any number of devices into another of these aroudn the house and have them talk to the router in a one-to-many setup?

Cheers for any info.

You should be able to use any number of these to create a large LAN at home. According to this reviewer he used 3 for 2 PCs and his router. Amazon review

The were also less than 38 quid on Amazon earlier, but they seem to have gone up in price again.

Thanks laxdog. That answers my question perfectly.

Re: Iwantalightsaber

These are simply a way to connect your router (the box that connects to your phone line) to the computer. Control is done the same way as with wireless routers ie.. Kiddie software on the computer, Switch off the router, some routers can set up limits within the menus or as mentioned unplug one of the plugs and break the connection.

This is not a controlling device, simply a way to connect 2 computer devices together. Unless your walls are particularly thick, most people stick with wireless networking.

If you can't think of a reason to set up a home network, you probably don't need it.
#23
These type of devices enhance a home network. I have 4 plugs of which one is also a wireless access point.
Plug 1 in the study for a desktop
Plug 2 in my son’s bedroom connecting a desktop and Xbox via a network switch.
Plug 3 which is also the wireless access point, connecting a Freesat box for Iplayer and also to give full signal WIFI for the laptop and phones.
Plug 4 into the router.
No hardwiring in the house and all you do is plug them, connect the LAN cables and no software setup they just work right out of the box.

Damn! Just ordered a couple of Netgear AV500 jobbies @ £80. :(

Does anyone know if four devices can be connected to one of these (via an unmanaged gigabit switch), with the other one connected to a gigabit router/modem elsewhere in the house?

Or is it a case of 1 homeplug per device?

Just that I need to connect an Xbox360, HDTV, Revo R3610 and Bluray to the network, but don't really want to lay cat5e throughout the house if I can help it.

Arrived. Very good, tiny compared to my old Zyxel 401s, 1/3 of the power, effortless to setup, thanks OP.

I have:

One connected to an ADSL modem that itself has several devices attached

One connected to an SMC wireless broadband router with the broadband bit unused (so just like a hub) with several devices attached (printer, PC, Vonage VOIP router)

One connected to a Sony Bluray player to stream iPlayer stuff

One directly connected directly to a single PC


They can all see one-another, and all see the internet.


Once you've paired them (easy), they are *direct* replacements for a long network cable - no more restricted than that.

By way of warning, I snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with these today.

To add a plug to your network you have to pair them together by pressing a button for 5-8 seconds.

I just added a new one, but left it for 10+ seconds (just to be on the safe side). Unfortunately doing this explicitly resets a plug and it loses all knowledge of it's neighbours.

Not obvious what's going on when things suddenly stop working (and you didn't read the manual in exactly the same way that I didn't
