Nice price for 1000Mbps - use code ZUZS

Ideal if struggling for download speeds and should drastically improve them!

Can be used with consoles etc.

D-Links DHP-601AV PowerLine AV2 1000 Gigabit Starter kit makes it easy to create a high-speed network at speeds of up to 1000Mbps. The kit includes two DHP-600AV PowerLine AV2 1000 Gigabit Adapters. Simply plug one adapter into your existing router to turn any power outlet in your home into an Internet connection and then plug the other adapter into the room you want to extend your connection to.

Pretty sure they have gigabit ports though.

I hate how they list power line speeds. I needed a pair for my internet so I bought 600Mbps expecting them to handle my 200Mbps internet, then I realise only gigabit power lines will actually get you over 100Mbps.

Cold - single port

Do you understand what power lines are?

Read a review for these where they had 116Mbs and the first comment on Amazon stated Getting a consistent 36-38 Mbps speed with my 50 Mbps provider.

Works perfectly for steam link, my pc is already wired so I just needed 2 of these for router and tv.

From the manufacturer:
"PowerLine data transfer rates of up to 600 Mbps"
d-link.co.za/for…0av

In practice the ratings of these are more like WiFi in that real world performance is far less so expect about 60 - 90 Mbs in real world situaiotns.

Ordered thanks! Apparently my current 600mbps ones only have a 100mbps port. It does the job but considering we have a 200mb connection hopefully I'll see a decent improvement.

You can buy a NAS with gigabit ports that runs at 100Mbs or less so don't be fooled by that.
I get 35 - 40 Mbs with an AV600 kit which is why I'm upgrading to AV1200 and hoping for nearer 70Mbs; just home the house's circuits aren't the bottleneck.

It's highly unlikely you will get more than 100Mbs with these as shown by the review I gave above.
It doesn't matter how fast the port is when the underlying technology can't keep up.

I think you'd want AV2000 to have a better chance of getting the most from 200Mbs broadband; assuming your wiring/circuits are up to it.

Thanks op just bought my 600mbps ones only give me 30mb out of my 72mb connection so hopefully these give me closer to my actual speed, paid the extra £1 for quicker delivery hoping it means 1st class and not 2nd as says 3/5 days for delivery

These are also 600Mbs and if you are only getting 30Mbs from yours that's not because you need to upgrade the interface from 100 to 1000Mbit.

They aren't called DHP-600AV for nothing as that's what they are rated at.

It has a gigabit Ethernet adaptor as opposed to 100Mbs but that doesn't make the underlying speed any faster if it can't manage more than 100Mbit which this can't according to the review I linked above.
The speed of the Ethernet adaptor is only one of the factors when looking at speed.
These aren't like hard wired Ethernet connections using CAT6 cable where the speed of the adaptor is the ultimate limiting factor of the network.
If you have a network technology that works at 60 - 90 Mbs you can use a 100Mbs adaptor with no penalty.
The Gigabit thing is for marketing mainly.

Would I still be able to use my old 200mbps in this setup in two other rooms?

You can but the speed using the new powerlines will be limited to the slowest speed of those used

If I hooked the gigabit one to the router and the other gigabit to the front room, and put the the two 200mbps upstairs I'd still get the gigabit performance in the front room surely?

Expired? Code not working.

Read it on the TP LINK FAQs when looking at these recently - Same should apply to these I think

Q: Are TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600,AV1200powerline adapters compatible with each other? Are TP-LINK PLC adapters compatible with adapters of other Brands

A: TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600 powerline adapters adopte HomePlug AV Standard, so they are compatible with each other,AV1200 adopt HomePlug AV2,that is also backward compatible with HomePlug AV standard,which means TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600,AV1200 are all compatible with each other.However, the powerline rate will drop to lowest one’s rate when use different AV adapters together.

For adapters of other brands,if they adopt the same standard,they should also be compatible with TP-LINK adapters.However,different brands’ products will have different ways to pair and configure,it might be much easier to use adapters from the same brand.

FAQs

Also have read various comments / threads saying the speeds will only be reduced when the slower powerlines are active. Example below;

Man! Had this in my basket but had to rush off to football, so thought I'd come back and do it. Tried paying but it wouldn't let me, now it says "code not valid"

sad story...Lol. But yep, seems code is expired. Having said that, £19.99 isn't that bad of a price for this anyway.

Yeah price is still OK. I paid £23 for these from ebay last week.. need another set though.
Don't forget Quidco!

Just remember 1.000 Mbps / 8 = 125 MB/s


real world your unlikely to ever see throughput of more than 90MB/s on a Gigabit NIC though

Read the reviews as this will get you more like 90 megabits not bytes per second.
Edited by: "Agharta" 5th Dec

I had a TP-Link one like this even though it says 1000Mbps it doesnt give you that mine only gave me a max of 120Mbps so i ended up finding out it wasnt AV1000 or something along them lines. So yeh just beware before you buy it. The proper 1000Mbps which is actually able to give you them speeds are usually 35-50 quid. But this is still a good deal for upto 100Mbps i mean usually you wouldnt need more than that unless you stream download and game at once.

dlink.com/uk/…kit

Here is the spec of the item. Under the specifications it says it will give upto 1000mbps... however that is all dependant on your wiring, how far it is, what other electrical devices are connected etc etc etc.

I have bought from this seller through amazon for £21 and very happy with these. Speed and latency is increased / reduced compared to WiFi

These are really good. 1000Mbps speed with gigabit port. Solid as a rock. My previous AV1200s Zyxels were awful. These sync for me (according to the Zyxel software) at 450Mbps. Really happy with them and really cheap (I paid £20).
