Each device lets you connect two devices to your router via the power lines and an ethernet cable in your house. Perfect for any rooms with dodgy WiFi.

Note: This is a wired, not WiFi range extender

Same price as a single pack, triple is £64.99.

I'll get 2 doubles instead of a triple
Devolo stuff's great - I've been using them for 6 years with no issues. Have some heat.
Anyone know if these are compatible Poe cctv?

Anyone know if these are compatible Poe cctv?



@edwardo1973 They can't do PoE themselves but I assume if you use an injector they'll work. I just went for a Solwise PoE homeplug (PL-500AV-POE), direct from Solwise, although they're a bit pricey. Thankfully the Solwise works with my other Devolo kit.

They dont have gigabit Ethernet so will be limited to 100Mbps, just keep it in mind if you are buying

The description stays 500mb, is that some misleading marketing then? The TP link alternative says 600mb.

Kind of. I think the connection between the plugs can go upto 500Mbps but the output can only do 100Mbps. Its "quick ethernet" which means 10/100

Features:

  • Your home network from the power outlet. Unpack. Plug it in. Get started. The easy way to connect using your home's power lines.
  • High-speed data transmission at powerline speeds up to 500 Mbps with two fast ethernet connections for connecting additional devices

Isn't gigabit 1000Mbps? 500 should be enough for many years yet, i think I only get ~74 max anyway


Edit: found this comment in the questions section, looks like shigllgetcha is correct:

A: The 100mb (megabits) link speed is the ethernet speed (between PC and adapter using the RJ45 cable). The 500mb (megabits) is the interconnect speed between 2 or more adapters (over power lines). This means that you should be able to get 5 powerlines and *theoretically* get 100mb out of all 5 of them at the same time. While it is possible that in your configuration you get slower than expected speeds, I have tested these and get pretty much as much as you can get on 100mb (taking into account overheads etc).
What you need to do is test your internet speed without them, make sure you are getting the 100mb from your ISP then introduce the adapter. Make sure when you do that you plug it in where there is not likely to be any other interference to get the best results and retest.
These devices are capable of doing what you are asking of them but it does depend on the noise on your powerlines.
Personally, if I had 100mb internet speed I would have opted for the 1000mb adapters. see less

Yes gigabit is 1000Mbps but these arent gigabit, theyre 10/100 so 100Mbps

Heres what the maplin page says "Up to 500Mbps transfer between the two powerline plugs*"

Edit: Just saw ur edit after i added this

I guess they can probably supply 500mbps to five connections at a time

Their own website
devolo.com/en/…top
"Ethernet 10/100 (mbps)"

Theyre still probably great for most people, you just need to be aware

Thanks for the detailed answer. I'm not likely to get anywhere near even 30mb broadband in the near future so I imagine any old powerline will do.
