The product description talks about MIMO and beam forming. Is that not terminology usually associated with WiFi. Does this product also have some sort of WiFi capability?
#10
This is a good price for these, but also slightly misleading by advertising them as 2000mbps. It's essentially two gigabit ports. most people use these to connect to a single device or more than 2 via a switch, so not sure on the real term perks of this. However, if you only have 2 things to connect and within reach then it's obviously a really good deal.

one thing I've been wondering is as one needs to connect to you router, which will usually only output gigabit via an ethernet port, can you actually connect two router ports to the two sockets to get the 2000mbps anyway?

Personally I'm not convinced. There's another deal going for a pair of Netgear Gigabit ones at Maplins for £25. They're not pass through which would be nice to have, but those certainly feel like much better value for money (better bargain).

2,000Mbps will never happen in real-world usage, it's basically just a maximum potential that the two devices could communicate at. That said, it's worth paying for the fastest ones you can afford as you should get better speeds from them regardless.

I'd like to find if anybody has done tests like this. I've got 60Mb/s internet and I get 95% of the speed I'd get at the router on my powerline adapter upstairs using a 200Mb/s TP-Link pair. Does not seem bandwidth starved in the least. Excellent latency as well.

It will vary from one home to the next though; my 200Mbps ones worked well in my last place but are much less reliable in my current flat. Same adapters, same devices being connected to them, but the electrical wiring (and anything connected to it) makes all the difference and it's not really something you can control.

there are people who have done extensive tests with powerline vs wifi vs Ethernet, ethernet&powerline won, if you actually need 1gbit/s then Ethernet won but that is only for the <0.01% of internet users.

Naturally your internet speed won't be limited at all by this or other powerline adapters since they handle 1000Mb/s and your internet is only 60Mb/s!


I don't think this is a good deal, there's gonna be no difference for the average user than if they used a cheap £25 pair.

uh crappy mobile app cut my sentence off. 1 Gb/s is only for <0.001% of users.

Really need three powerlines to replace my ancient 200 system. Can you buy singles? Or a pack of 3?

Think of these as WiFi repeaters, the powerline collects the connection from the unit near router, transmits it over the house wiring to where ever you place the other unit, then broadcasts it as Wifi, or you can physically connect an ethernet cable.

This is not only a great deal, but a great idea, as it doesnt waste sockets.

Of course, but different to what I'm talking about, which is whether 1000 or 2000Mbps adapters are necessary/faster if your internet isn't capable of providing those speeds in the first place.

Wow there is so much misinformation here. Maybe this might clear a few things up.

- These are not wifi repeaters and have nothing to do with wifi.
- The two gigabit sockets on each one do not stack, ie you cannot plug both into one device and expect to get double speed.
- Think of the 2000mbps as a rating as a opposed to maximum speed. Ie av2000>av1200>av500>av200.
- They do not really have anything to do with the internet. Yes the internet traffic in your house goes through them, but so can anything else network related. Ie if you have a NAS, or stream/transfer things between devices, then you really should be using these instead of wifi. So..
- If all you ever want to do is "use the internet", then no, you probably don't need one of these. Depending on the size of your house, a good wifi router may do, or AV1200. But a lot of people do a lot more than just use the internet.

Voting hot just to cancel out the above comment. This is a decent deal if these Homeplugs happen to be what you're after.
#28
in short, if you know what you're buying into these are a great deal.

If all you know is that you need to get connectivity to a room where WiFi currently doesn't reach and the bandwidth doesn't need to be huge, a lower end / lower cost product will suffice and will likely give you the same speed internet as though you were connected to your main router directly.

Hi, anymore info on this. I get a really bad wifi connection (usually no connection) in the kitchen downstairs from the router (usecase: in the kitchen I would probably watch youtube videos). Also in another house my friend gets bad wifi in their bedroom.

Any suggestions on lower price products?

Get a decent ac router instead. My virgin superhub 2.ac had terrible wifi - poor range, speed and constant dropouts. Swapped it out for a TP Link Archer C9 and I get my full 200mbps on 5 GHz wifi with no drops at all.
I've used powerline adapters before and they are hit and miss. My archer covers my whole house with great signal

Potentially yes, if you're transferring files within your network, streaming from a NAS, sharing bandwidth between lots of connected devices etc.

I know you can get WiFi extenders which connect back to the router over power line (less internet speed loss if you have fibre), I just can't figure out if this is one of those.

If your use case us simply getting better access to your internet connection in another part of the house and you don't have a home server with HD media which you also want high speed access to in that part of the house, and your internet is <100mbps, save yourself a few Bob and get the £14.99 netgear WiFi extender (search netgear on HUKD and it will pop up).

Link to the £14.99 WiFi extender.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00NIUHAG6/ref=cm_sw_r_apa_N9QmybY8TAJ1H

This needs to be plugged in at a location in the house where the signal is reasonably good and half way between the router and the room(s) where you want the WiFi signal to reach.

Note I've not checked if this is dual band. If your router supports dual band you may want to look for a similar product that supports dual band. Should still be cheaper than going power line.

The benefit of power line is a wired connection that has more bandwidth and a more reliable connection.
