D-Link's PowerLine HD 4-port Starter Kit includes everything you need to create or extend a network using your home's existing electrical wiring. PowerLine offers an ideal solution if you can not or prefer not to use Wi-Fi technology in your premises: with the switch plugged directly into a power socket and the adapter in another socket anywhere in your house, you can connect up to 5 devices without having to worry about any configuration.

The kit exchanges data at up to 200 Mbps, making it ideal for HD video streaming, VoIP calls or on-line gaming. You can even assign higher priorities to audio, video or gaming over less time-sensitive traffic such as email or file transfers. Security is easily activated at the push of a button.

Might be moving to BT from Virgin soon so this will be one to bear in mind... Cheers op!

If this is just a 4 port box tied in with a mains Ethernet, then surely far cheaper to buy a standard single port mains Ethernet and add a "regular" 5/8/16 port switch box (£7-£12) to it (eg for the TV, Sat, Blu-ray, game console) - as your main router is gonna sort out DCHP IP leases for all the devices on your network! Look for Getnet switches on here for past UKHDs.

It's two items - one of which has a 4 port switch integrated. It's £10 more expensive than an Ebuyer "Value" 200Mbps one but add the price of a separate switch and this one being neater I'd say it's a good price.

Interesting - will these be compatible with the Ebuyer 200mbps AV plugs?

Hmm - looks like it is not compatible:

That would make more sense - but the description is certainly a bit vague about it.

Anyway, why would you buy a 100BaseT switch in 2010? Gigabit is the way forward, and unless I am completely mistaken, it is also a necessity for reaching the full 200mbit speed!

Stupid question, but i am thinking about these and wondering how far back up the wiring these go? I live in an annexe on my own meter in, but the owner is allowing me access to her ADSL which is on a seperate wiring/meter, and wondered if these would act as a bridge if i installed my own router in my flat.

I you operate any Amateur Radio equipment and install this type of system...Sell your Amateur Radio Station PDQ.. Massive Interference!!!.

They generally only work on ring mains or supplies going through the same consumer unit. If all the wiring in the building goes through the same consumer unit it should work.

How do you mean by same consumer unit?

We are in 2 seperate buildings, on 2 seperate meters, but using the same power line coming off the pole outside.

Great idea but these don't seem to work for me. The house was re-wired around 30 years ago and an extension built on 10 years ago. I've tried two different sets and three routers but just to load a webpage takes around 2 minutes. It means 0 foot of cable running from the extension, through the kitchen, living room and up the stairs
I'd love to find a way around it! But, great price me thinks!

Move on mate this techonology is essential moving forward. How many people use Ham radio ? Move Nimby rubbish few thousand people trying to hold up progress I dont think so. I see it as a further advantage that it interferes with the ham radio geeks TBH.

You better get used to it. BT are no trialing there fast broadband using this technology over the national grid.

alera

Ummm. Perhaps we all need to try and live with each other. Rather than saying I'm too lazy to get proper cabling, do you mind if I plug in these gizmos that will b*gger up your hobby. Mate.
Same goes to BT. Stick to cable, you do at least know what you're doing with this.

That said, I haven't met a HAM operator yet who hasn't been a bit 'strange'

Dabs website seems to be down at the moment...

The site finally came back up but the price is showing as £71.63 for this item - it there a code you need to get the previous price?
