Are Broadband homeplugs any good?

My mum wont stop moaning about the ethernet cable going from my dining room up the stairs and into my room - I said they do wireless adaptors for my 360 but they are rubbish but i heard homeplugs arent too bad and cost about £50 for the pair

So my question to tech buffs on here - are homeplugs any good ?

Yes brilliant. Sons Xbox connects to router using Zyxel 200Mbps ones from Amazon. Came from a deal on HUKD for £49 the pair before Crimbo.

I use these too, they are excellent as kingy58 says, much better and faster than wireless :thumbsup::)

If you are just using them to connect to xbox live and not for streaming content from your pc to your xbox then 85mbps will be plenty fast enough,

Saw some Develo 200 mbps starter packs in Currys today for under £40. Would have bought them if I hadn't already bought some from value 85 mbps ones from ebyuer a couple of weeks ago.

That long cable could be causing you problems with your broadband, is it flat? What you need mate is a telephone engineer

Homeplugs max out at about 190Mbit/s.
Why claim 200 if it could only do half that?
