Great price, I purchased 3 packs of the Netgear ones from Amazon (offer has ceased now) at a total cost of £45 for 6 units.

Heat added.

what else is required to connect a sky HD box and hdmi tv in separate rooms to remove the need for sky multiroom? I already have the ability to remotely change channels. thanks

Not this. This is for networking/internet.

an HDMI Splitter with an HDMI Cat5/6 extender (preferably Cat6 because it's shielded) could work.

On that note though, don't get confused and think the Ethernet Extenders will work over these Powerline devices. Just because it's the right port doesn't mean it'll work, as it's not going to be sending a signal it can deal with.

I have three of these, well i have 4 but i cant seem to use the 4th one, when ever I try it seems to clog the network and the extenders slow to a crawl, tried them in different sockets around the house but 3 is the max it seems to cope with.

should add my house is less than 10 years old so decent wiring, i wish builders would put Ethernet runs in the walls, wouldnt cost them much to run a gigabit switch and install a terminal in each room, they do it with Sky, Phone and RF

Can these be used with Sky boxes for anytime plus?

Do they improve the Wi-Fi signal?

yes to the sky box no to the wif as they dont do anything to do with wifi they are just lan extenders

Can I just plug one into the router, plug the other 2 anywhere in the house and then anything connected to them will get a faster connection than over WiFi?

Yes

Could I then use these for my sky hd box, router is in the kitchen sky box in living room, I have got the little sky wifi box that has a Earther cable connected to the sky box but because the main sky hd box is not connected to the router with a earther cable, I cannot get sky box office due to them needing to send a message to the sky box and it not receiving it, due to not having an earther net cable between the box and router. Sound a bit of a mess but that's the easiest way to describe it.

No it's not possible to run a cable from kitchen to living room, it's too far

for those that don't know these will make your house wiring carry your Internet signal all over your home so all your plug sockets will be a access point so they will work with anything that uses the Internet and has a ethernet connection ie ps4 xbox one/360 sky etc etc hope this helps.

This is better than wifi extenders as this doesnt reduce wifi speed..plus it gives a solid wired internet signal..

Would connecting an old router to one of these help extend the wifi range in my house without having to run cables?

This isn't a wifi extender.

If you plug your router in to one of these, and the plug the others somewhere else in your house, you can then connect devices via wire.

But if the old router has wifi then there's a fair chance it can be used as a wireless access point, so then yes - it would work.

internet -> main router -> powerline ->//-> powerline -> secondary router in access point mode >>>> wifi

If the old router is a standard model, it can probably be used in access point mode (you'll have to check the manual). If it was supplied by Sky, Virgin etc, then it may be locked down so it can't be,

Gone. Sadly.
