It's not different to internet speeds, for instance 70mbps is 7.4 mb/s
Yes it s a 100 mbs port but they're quoting 600mpbs as the rates bandwidth which actually a 100mb switch can use that full bandwidth
Also you have to remember you can use 4 plugs sharing that 600mbps bandwidth

Incorrect. It has a 100Mbps port and claims 600Mbps throughput. Don't comment if you have no idea what you're talking about. It misleads people.

100mbit port. Branding has up to 600mbit link ... Except you could only ever use 100mbit of it. Hate advertising like this

I agree. They say these plugs can handle 200/500/600 but the ethernet port can only handle 100mbits. I've not come across any powerline adapters with a gigabit port.

I have one of these (paid £19 3 months ago) and have to say I wish I had gone for a faster one and preferably one with a gigabit port. It works, but I do see a few disconnects and slowdowns when watching a 1080p stream and copying files to/from my home server.

Might seem a silly question but could I plug this into an extension lead/cable to improve signal in my garden? Or could it plug into garage plug socket and work??

It doesn't have a wifi transmitter on the exit plug, so it won't help extending your wifi on it's own.

It *might* work out in your garage. But it'll have to be on the same power ring as your house to do so. And then it depends on the length of the run and quality of the cabling as to how good a (wired) signal you'd get at the exit point.

I run the older AV500 version in my flat. It's on an 4-gang extension at the entry point. And an 8 way, surge protected, extension at the other end. Works surprisingly well through both extenders. I get about 60% of my full internet speed through it in this configuration.

There are many adapters with a Gigabit Ethernet port, but they do cost a little bit more.

The advantage of these is that you can use them in a 500Mbit/s system without bringing the whole system speed down. If you don't have another adapter with a gigabit port, these are a bit useless. At least in my experience, Fast Ethernet should be enough for streaming, but you could go with the cheaper 200Mbit/s system.

Depends on your luck (and probably wiring), really.

I have a variation of this model with the Gb ports.

I have the SOURCE plugged into an unfiltered extension lead, a mains RECEIVER plugged into the wall in the living room and a paired WiFi unit plugged into the shed so I have Wireless outside.. Seems to work OK.

Granted, I'm not streaming HD or anything, but...

Your mileage may vary.

Wat? You're using mbps and mb/s for megabits per second and megabytes per second respectively in a confusing way

Please use MB for megabytes, and mb or Mb for megabits so it's clearer what you're talking about

If one only uses 2 of these in a home network, paired up, is there any point of the 600mbits transfer? Or is it useless, since end to end is just 100mbits max?

Am i correct in thinking that, the 600mbits is only useful if you have multiple of these, all doing cross transfers with each other? But a pair is just maxed out at 100mbits?

Emperical observation. I have my fibre connection delivering 38 MB/sec at my router and use these Adapters to connect most of my equipment. Speed test show I receive 37.5 MB/sec at the end of the Powerline hook-up. If I use WiFi directly from the router I achieve 36 MB/sec. The Powerline adapters also deliver a more stable connection.

I'm looking for something like this, my WI-FI doesn't extend to my sky box, so i cant get catch up etc. and my loft room has virtually no wifi at all. The room my router is in is on the same fuse box, but a seperate fuse to elsewhere in the house. I am confused as to how to connect these to my sky box, does it have to be connected by ethernet cable or does this unit have a wifi connection? Thank you, simple answers appreciated!!

No wifi features on these sadly and only a single ethernet port. If it is just your SKYbox you need to connect it should be fine otherwise pay more and get one that has wifi extender cabability.

EDIT: Infact if its on a different mains circuit to the rest of the house i dont think these would work, unless you can run an ethernet cable long enough to reach a plug on the same circuit as your loft.

Correct. But these aren't much more expensive than 200/500 mb homeplugs and if you add more plugs later you may be glad of the extra bandwidth.

I don't think that would work as they need to be on the same circuit... You could try a wifi booster device or just pay for a long ethernet cable ;)

I spotted these yesterday before the deal was posted and bought a set but immediately regretted it when I spotted that the ethernet port on board is 10/100 not 10/100/1000 there's a very simmilar product with the same name but a different model number with gigabit which maplins were selling for £25 last week... and if you Google this model number US websites list it's max speed as 500mbps!

I've emailed currys to see if they can cancel the order before its dispatched otherwise it's going back for a refund.

I've also been having problems with my small home built NAS suddenly (using TP-LINK 200mbps powerline adapters) disappearing from the network and it wasn't until I twigged that my Youview box had also disappeared that I found these sorts of powerline adapters have a nasty habit of "falling asleep" it's easily fixed by just turning one of the adapters off at the wall and then back on but obviously if your trying to connect remotely your not at home to do that.

You plug one of these in to the wall next to your router. They come with short ethernet cables. One end of the cable into the router and one end into the ethernet port on the base of the TP-Link. Plug the other TP-Link into a wall socket near your Sky box and connect the second ethernet cable between the TP-Link and the Sky Ethernet connection. As for your loft room, you could purchase a third powerline adaptor (or a second set), and place that in a socket in the loft room. Buy a cheap old wireless router and have that up in the loft. Connect it as with the primary set. Almost all of these powerline adaptors will work as long as the wiring in the house is reasonable and they are used on the same side of the same meter. I have this set-up using TP-Link and an old BT HH3 which I had laying around to a potting shed 75 meters away from the house.

​If you require WiFi use an old router. Plug the wan port into this adapter and connect to the router.

​tp link's AV2000 is £100+
if you want/need bleeding edge you have to pay for it!

this is £20
will do the same job of extending a wired connection.

AV2000 sounds like complete overkill to me.

Even AV1200 - which are I current use - are way more than are required (and enable BR streaming to multiple devices simultaneously without any lag/issues)

Can't recommend any TP Link products, especially their powerline stuff. Constant dropouts, and still hasn't been fixed... the product is years old. TP Link are pretty useless at keeping their products working

Yep it depends if your house has multiple ring mains/consumer units. If both sockets are on the same one then you should be fine. Otherwise speeds will be hit hard!
#33
I'd try and test these first, bought some powerline adapters to connect for gaming, but the packet loss/ping spikes to the router was unacceptable, maybe I had interference, who knows, nothing I could do about it anyway.
#34
Had constant disconnections with their AV500 version of these. If these are the same, be prepared for awful reliability.

TP stuff, in my experience, is pretty terrible.

You may have a job depending on your quality of power connection. I couldnt get consistent 720P webcam footage on the AV500 series, admittedly this was at the garage about as far as we can go for power at around 30M and through a secondary fuse box but it was hardly high bitrate stuff.
The AV1200 you get a true sync rate of around 250Mb MAXIMUM! That is plugged in the same room or even the same double socket wall outlet. You will never see close to the speed that the name carries.
I have upgraded from AV200 to 500 and then most recently to the 1200 over the years, all TP Link and they have been solid connection wise.

What makes them better exactly? Aesthetics aside they do the same thing. They are certainly priced to make them "seem" better LOL. £20 for two of these or £215 for two of those! Admittedly with WiFi too but that's hardly going to cost you much to add - hell, you can buy a VERY high end router with a lot of functionality for less than that.

Had some of these for about 18 months - great things

I went from about 32mbps (variable) on my wireless solution to a stable 35-38mbps.

Never failed, and have never needed to reset them or anything

I just wish that I picked up a version with more than one Ethernet port at the receiving end
