Same deal as a few months ago. £15.99 each, 29.99 for two or 42.99 for 3.

I bought two last time, they were simple to setup and no config needed. They are fantastic and work much better than my previous wireless setup.

here are the direct links (thanks to andycnovowel)

From what i know about them the router type doesnt matter. Anything which has an RJ45 port (network port) will be able to take advantage of these as far as i know. You wouldnt normally use it to plug your laptop into tbh. If you were running things from the laptop to the TV you would normally do this using an HDMI cable straight from lappy to TV.

I have two currently and am buying two more today. One is currently plugged into the sky router and the other is in my popcorn hour (media centre). The new ones will be for the upstairs media centre and my PS3.

PS, you can run this side by side with a wireless network, so no need to disconnect anything.

thanks for your help

I dont understand sorry can i tell my situation and someone can advise me.

I have my sky router in my living room beside my tv and ps3. i get a good reception wireless because the ps3 is right beside the router but when i take the ps3 into bedroom (one room away) or my lapto the reception pretty much disapears inc. my iphone.

My question is would this help and how does it work?

Please

Yes it would help. It works by transmitting the signal through your electrics. So you would need two plugs. One would be connected to your router and plugged in next to your router. The other would be plugged in in the room next door and network cable (provided) plugged into your PS3 (when its there).

Brilliant. Thanks for that. This may get purchased tonight.

Just be aware, if you have your power sockets on different circuits from your fuseboard, these devices may not work

Do they work through extension cables? I haven't got many sockets in my house and virtually everything is plugged into an extension cable

Just a word of caution, from what you said you currently connect with wi-fi, this would help to move the signal from one room to any other however you'd then need to connect to it via an ethernet cable. You can get homeplug devices that act at one end as a wi-fi hub but these aren't those.

They do, because thats how mine work now. Apparently the are at their best when plugged direct into the wall. I cant vouch for this because i havent tried. I successfully stream 1080p video to my media centre with no issues so ive not had any reason to try and make them work any better.

Thanks

Good deal..cheers OP

could u provide the direct link please?

I have mine plugged into a TP-Link wireless access point (this one: tp-link.com/en/…ls/?model=tl-wa801nd), so it takes the signal and send out another wifi signal meaning i get full service for my printer, phone & laptop!

The access point works as a repeater as well so that might work on it's own

If you bought a set (two) of these, they would help your PS3, if you connected it via it's wired port. It wouldn't help your iPhone though. You'd need a wireless access point as well to extend your wireless coverage for that.

Hope that helps!

Personally, for the sake of the few quid difference, I'd rather go with a trusted brand but each to ones own.

For those who are confused. This does not help with wireless signals, if you have a area in your house which has a bad wifi reception it will stil continue to be bad.

to correct wifi dead spots you would however need a wifi repeater or another router configured as a repeater or hotspot.

What this product allows you to do, is use the electricity cabling to carry data, just like Ethernet cables do. Thus is much neater than carrying cables around the house.

tp-link.com/en/…1nd

I've looked at the link - (which I have fixed above) and it mentions Power over ethernet. Does this mean you only need the ethernet connection, and don't need to use the separate powerpack with this?

Also - anyone who has the homeplugs, are they as small as the original 7Dayshop ones that didn't take up much space? 7dayshop.com/cat…817



The Powerline C200 ones from play (the ones that turned out to be 85mbps hotukdeals.com/dea…e=8 ) were quite wide and meant that you can't plug anything in next to it if it's in a double socket or multi socket extension.


Just incase anyone made the same assumption as me - you need 2 of these in order to extend a network. I have asked to have my order cancelled.

Not sure what the point of a single device would be other than to add another connection to an existing pair?

yes you need two as explained in post #6. And yes the single plugs are for people already running a homeplug network (either the same brand or another, most are compatible)

actually when I went to cancel 7day shop kindly gave me the option having two for the price of one which I thought was very decent of them.

UPDATE: turns out 7day shop are just a bunch of time wasters. They just ordered me a second unit and refunded me £1.99.

Misleading advertising, misleading support , slow delivery times. Have they never heard of AMAZON? Never again


UPDATE : Appears i am not alone. Looks like there are plenty of people having problems with 7day shop - Trustpilot Reviews for 7day shop

You mean an additional two for the price on one, making it 3 for the price of two?
Or one more for free?

whichever it is, it must be said - you spawny get!

2 for 1 and yes I have to agree

Pays to be stupid sometimes

Anyone know if these can be used to transmit SKY HD signal from downstairs to my bedroom upstairs?

U should have got the others from currys the deevo i think they are called they had wifi built in n wireless with 3 lan.ports

No, you need something like this... ebuyer.com/280…1sr

I thought this was a decent deal till I saw it was just one, you can get a pack of 2 for about 32quid anyway. Wanted to have a play with these to test something out, but not for 30quid!

For those wanting to increase the wireless range in the home, something like this might help

Great for wired connection guys, don't get these bad boys if you need a wireless connection extended.

PS3 works so much better plugged in than it would with a wireless connection - actually, everything works better wired up.

That's an extremely rare setup which would not apply to 95% of buyers. I have a garden office on a separate circuit to the house main and I still get a good signal via a Devolo home network plug. .

These are very good for people in old stone houses with thick walls or similar barriers to good wireless networking. Provided your mains wiring is sound and up-to-date these work like a dream. If you are just starting out you do need to buy two though.

Not to say that these won't work, but most people will have a separate circuit downstairs to upstairs(which is the main use in my opinion).

If you have a gigabit router then speed will reduce to 100mbps.
These do work on a double ring circuit if you have one.
You can actually your main router connected to a homeplug downstairs then have another router with DHCP turned off upstairs and connected to another one of these to boost the signal, works for me and now able to get strong signal in attic and shed at bottom of garden
I have 6 of the below in my house
solwise.co.uk/net…htm
OK bit more expensive but no speed drops and able to stream 4 x 1080 movies throughout the house without any drop in quality

These are good value for someone wanting to try them out if they are unsure

Perfect for flats

Do these not use the ground "earth" wiring only to transfer the data, therefore suitable on split circuit.

I have three floors in my house (so 3 circuits?) and mine work fine on all of them. I stream BT Vision VOD to loft bedroom with router on ground floor. The loft has its own fuse box extension from the house main fuse box. Speed drops a bit though.

I've got a couple of those powerline adapters that BT were supplying, the ones that you can still use the plugsockets with. 1000mb Comtrend I think. Anybody know what protocol mine use? Im sure I could find out if I Google it but they're in very awkward places and getting the model no. would be a pain so if anyone could help out so I can tell if these are compatible, that'd be great.
