Sorry. What is this exactly? If I plug it into a wall, I can connect a wire to it and it run's off my ISP's speeds as a wired connection?

Yeah... pretty much.

It's for connecting computers, games consoles, etc... to your home network by using the electricity cables within your house. Just plug one of these adapters close to your modem / router and then the other one can go wherever you need it to within your house.

Nice find. Cheers op. Been needing some of these.

i dont get it lol(dosnt take much) ive a tv upstairs i cant watch love film on as the wireless router is downstairs, i was going to get someone to come and run an ethernet cable upstairs,would this do the job or do i still need the cable , confused lol

hmc - you're absolutely right. You plug one into your router and one into another device. Your situation is exactly what these were made for.

I bought a set last time these were on offer and it made a redundant PC usable again, as my WiFi signal is poor upstairs. Now I can stream iPlayer from it for those lazy Sundays in bed!

yep these will do the job you'll just need 2 short Ethernet cables. 1 from your modem to the first plug.the 2nd from the 2nd plug to the tv. Easy as that

The kit even comes with 2 Ethernet cables to save you the bother.

Was using a couple of homeplugs for connecting NAS server to TV downstairs but i recently wired a cat5 cable from router and now get much better speeds.

Homeplug 200mbps = 4MB/s (not much faster than a decent wifi router, ping was obviously much better than wifi though)
Cat 5 = 29MB/s

I guess in some homes it will work better but i would say for HD streaming 500mbps is a minimum setup

But brilliant for plug and play so voted hot for price and the kit

I've got these and stream in HD no problem to my PS3. Netflix SuperHD and 1080p files from my NAS.

I bought one of these last week.. without the £10 discount. miffed.

anywho, nice find broooooooo.

nail on the head.. But also, if you've just bought your first house and you havent got the time or the patience for patching cat5/6 around the place.. these are a great idea!

Heeattttt X)

Do these work when plugged into an extension lead? Or do they have to be operated from a wall socket?

200mpbs is the Max speed it can send like a 100mbps enet connection.....it also depends on the quality of your internal electrical wiring.....if you have a up to 20 Meg connection on a BT phone line or anything up to a 100 Meg via cable these will give it via a wired enet connection from the router or modem to the relevant pc where you decide to plug it in.......a very good buy for 20 quid...

I use my 200mbit Powerline AV for streaming 1080p Blurays between floors. Works perfectly for me although YMMV.

thankyou

Damnit. My interweb finally got connected in the new house last week so had to go & buy a set of these at full price to go with the set I got last time the offer was on.
Hot though, work well with microserver, 2 pc's & laptop scattered around a rambling old house!

This pops up every week it seems. Can it really be qualified as a deal when this seems to be the standard price nowadays?

Right somebody please explain this device to non techno guy like myself: If I only have a wired modem could I still use this Ethernet Powerline to then get internet in another room or in the garden, by merely plugging one into my modem and the other device in the other room etc?

Or is this device only for wifi users, please excuse my ignorance thank you.

By the way, HOT!

Yes you can. Think of it as providing a wired connection to your device.

As long as you have a spare network port on your router these will work - they don't need wireless or anything.

The best way to think of them is as a network cable extension lead.....that uses your mains cables to extend. That's it really.

Thanks @ Dannius and Dave, much appreciated!

So can you buy 4 of these and connect them around the house? I mean you are not limited to 2 are you?

If you buy 4 use one to connect to your router and the other three to connect to different computers around the house.

Got these last time at this price. Work perfectly, easy set up, good buy. I used them to connect my office PC without running cables through the house (router downstairs). I was initially a bit worried about losing some speed because of the crazy electrical wiring in my house but I get full-speed internet without a hitch.

Heat (again)

? i don't get it.
so you plug this on the wall on the staircase.
then you use one cable to connect router and another to connect the device (computer, tv etc)
hows that different from getting a wire with length of those two shorter wires combined and just have it connect to the device straight from the router?

What?

It comes with two homeplugs, you plug one into a socket near the router and use an ethernet cable router <--> 1st homeplug, you plug the other into a socket near your computer (or any other device with an ethernet port) and use an ethernet cable computer <--> 2nd homeplug. The computer could be nowhere near the router so it saves you having to trail a long lead through the house.

Because you don't need to trail a cable through your house.

In my case, my modem/router is in my bedroom. The wired connection for my router connects to my powerline device which plugs into my wlal socket near my router. Then in my living room, I have a second powerline device plugged into a wall socket near my TV which connects directly to my xbox/ps3/bluray/whatever.

And the Pointless Comment of the Day award goes to...

Proper Cold!!!!!!!! I bought same pack direct from currys last month for the same price

is this any good?

I keep waiting for one at this price with a passthrough socket. Don't think it will happen though!

I bought this a few months back when they were on for the same price. £20 quid well spent in my opinion, no internet stability or speed problems since I installed these.

Normal home plugs are fine for streaming HD 1080p stuff (200meg ones)

Your home network sounds goosed if your only getting those speeds with Cat5

Another dumb question I guess, but could I connect a second router off the 2nd Homeplug to improve wireless or do you have to use an Ethernet cable? (obviously I'd have to get another router, but could I use the same pass-key details off the original??)

Yes to the first question. Regarding using the same SID and passcode, that is not advisable.

Given that you don't have a spare router, just buy a wireless repeater or wireless bridge (google them). I have a NETGEAR WN2000RPT to both extend my wifi and hardwire my TIVO to the internet - it also has 4 ethernet ports for other devices like DVD, Wii PS3 etc. Depending on your situation a repeater might be a cheaper solution, but you can also get repeaters with a single ethernet port.

Hope this helps

I already have 2 home plugs made by a different company - could I use these in tandem?

Good price, heat added.

Will this reduce my lag in gaming and improve download speeds (from a wireless internet connection) ?

If you want to stream anything in good quality or use Netflix properly round the house then these are essential. Plug it in and away you go. So easy.

They run warm = wasting energy = cost

Get a wifi repeater instead
