D-Link AV2 1000 HD Gigabit Twin Powerline Kit £21.98 @ Ebuyer

Found 16th Jan
I've been looking for some new powerline plugs that are gigabit, and found these this morning. Look a good deal to me.......

D-Link's DHP-601AV PowerLine AV2 1000 Gigabit Starter kit makes it easy to create a high-speed network at speeds of up to 1000Mbps1. 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.

I love that rivals TP-Link advertise 500Mbps Nano adaptors and dual link adaptors that might be able to achieve speeds above 100Mbps, but it doesn't matter since the ethernet at both ends is 100Mbps! WTF?

Anyway, these are using Gigabit Ethernet connectors so no bottleneck - heat!

A new a Gigabit one with at least 2 Ethernet sockets on the far end and WAP mode to extend my Wi-fi network. Any advise?

Thanks

Are you happy to use a switch to get more ports or does it have to be 2 ports embedded?

Cheapest option seems to be the plugs from this deal, connected via an Ethernet cable to a wireless extender that can act as a router/AP.

I would prefer to have a device only. I have enough cables already

You could get these:

amazon.co.uk/NET…bit

...but then it's one port instead of two. Plus they cost more than the OP's deal with a wireless access point via short Ethernet cable to the neighbouring powerline adaptor. (Have them both next to each other and the only cable you see is a short Ethernet. Besides which, wouldn't you have cables coming from the two ports of the powerline gigabit Ethernet's anyway?)

1 pound more from Amazon … 1 pound more from Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/D-Link-DHP-601AV-PowerLine-Gigabit-Starter/dp/B00PS1BQT0


So thus not as cheap as this deal??? I could do a lot with that pound!!! I could buy a couple of Mars Bars, or a couple of newspapers. I could even leave it in a Tesco trolley by accident or lose it down the back of the sofa!! I'd still feel better for saving that pound though!!

There was this deal on the other day:

Forgive me if I'm missing something but those are not WiFi capable plugs.

​The point is that quite a few people on this site comment about Ebuyer and the comments tend to be mixed at best. So some people will prefer to use Amazon especially as it is only one pound more. I will make it clear next time

Not to mention some people might be Amazon Prime members and thus would get their deliveries next day, which for only an £1 I'm sure people would be happy with. Though I personally have never had any issues with Ebuyer Customer Service, I've found them to be professional and helpful and I've been a customer of theirs for almost 10 years.

They are not sold by Amazon, so not eligible for Prime.

​Many people will consider that pound well spent just to be able to avoid ebuyer, so your point is??

Very true, I didn't see that before. My bad.

​My apologies didn't read the WiFi requirement properly!

Could you not just plug an old router into the 2nd powerline adapter in another room thereby extending your WiFi and using the router as a switch for other Ethernet connected devices? I'm not totally sure how to do it but other cleverer folks on here could advise - or Google is your friend

it is very easy to convert old router into access point only. It only requires the second router DHCP server to be disabled and ip address to be changed so it doesn't conflict with primary router. Then when that is done simply plug the an ethernet cable from the power line adapter into the old router and that's it

​Could I set a second router to pick up the wireless from the first router and broadcast wireless? Would that have any benefit? I've a wireless card in my PC but I get only between 1-2Mb speed upstairs but 104Mb downstairs. Or is Powerline the only option?

Would adding non-gigabit powerline adapters in addition to these have any any impact on the performance?
By that I mean, one of these connected to the router, another elsewhere and then slower ones somewhere elsewhere - would I still get gigabit on one of them or would the whole network be slowed down to the slowest?

​i am afraid you would need a wireless booster/repeater that are used in blind spots. Having an old router to repeat wireless signal is not possible. Also I wouldnt recommend a wireless booster in the first place as it has to pick up wireless network first and especially in blindspot that could be difficult

I have the same issue of receiving crap wireless speed upstairs in loft conversion and thus I opted for powerline but they weren't pushing to the max. Then I got 30m Ethernet cable from ebay that now runs directly from router to an old router upstairs that give the same speeds when compared to downstairs....Ethernet cable is the best solution but an alternative is the power line adapters

Do they have to be on the same electric network?

chrismad4rit

Do they have to be on the same electric network?



​From what I have read, the v1 power line adapters have to be on the same ring main circuit. The newer v2 adapters just have to be connected to the same electrical consumer unit.

Just got paid this morning and went to buy these. Out of stock. FFS! Anybody know of alternatives in the same price range?

Read the comments -amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21

For anyone still looking; the third party seller on Amazon is My Memory, who will sell it directly at the same price:

mymemory.co.uk/Wi-…Kit

If you're signed up to TopCashBack, you should get 4.44% back - which in theory brings it to £21.97, a whole penny cheaper than the original deal. I bet those guys further up the thread who dove in at Ebuyer's vastly inflated price are kicking themselves now!
