the picture shows 2 different products next to each other. Also it says starter kit, and it would be the worst starter kit with only one of them! Still, sometimes amazon descriptions/pictures can be a bit dodgy.

Anyone bought one of these? does it come with 2 plugs?

I think the 4 port switch is stand alone .... if it isn't but can be plugged in as a 4 port homeplug then it's excellent value ...

but am willing to be corrected..

its has one Adapter to connect to your router and 1 adapter with a 4 port 10/100 switch

Great price, BUT not Homeplug AV compatible, so no good to me!

Then it's a good price....

Looks good, very tempted to remove my wireless network with this. What is the actual throughput you get generally with these units?

What is the point of having a "200mbps" connection if your end points are only 10/100 interfaces?!

Sorry. What's AV compatible?

HomePlug AV
The HomePlug AV specification was introduced in August 2005 and was designed to provide sufficient bandwidth for applications such as HDTV and VoIP. Utilizing adaptive modulation on up to 1155 OFDM sub-carriers, turbo convolution codes for error correction, two-level MAC framing with ARQ,[4] and other techniques, HomePlug AV can achieve near the theoretical maximum bandwidth across a given transmission path.[5] Key distribution techniques and the use of 128 bit AES encryption are specified as mandatory in the specification. Furthermore, even the interception of encrypted data exchanged between HomePlug AV devices poses a "significant challenge" for an attacker due to the adaptive techniques used to modulate the signal between two given points.[6][7]
According to the HomePlug AV specification, HomePlug AV devices may interoperate with Homeplug 1.0 devices, but this support is optional. It is mandatory for HomePlug AV devices to coexist with HomePlug 1.0 devices.

So is that better than 200mbps?

In real world use you won't get 200mps due to interference etc so having a 10/100 interface makes perfect sense. As point out it will be faster than Wifi B and G, perhaps not N but depends on range etc it can be the better option that wireless.

"It's UPA (Universal Powerline Association) rather than HomePlug AV certified, which means fewer compatible devices to choose from, but this standard boasts comparable raw transfer speeds of up to 200Mbits/sec."

Amazon has a AV set from Asus for £60 "Asus Powerline 200Mbps Homeplug AV Network Extenders - Twin Pack" not got a built in 4 port switch but still its the AV standard.

Many thanks!
