I dont suppose anyone on here could help, but ive asked all over the place if getting a pair of powerline adapters will conflict with the BT ones i currently use for BT Vision?

BT wont commit to an answer, the guys at my local Maplins didnt know and like wise the guys at PC world and my local Currys dont either.

My question really is, will i still need to have one of these plugged into my router even though i have a BT one already plugged in, if it doesnt cause interferance with the BT one's in the first place.

Cheers,

Oh and voted HOT as I havent seen these under £60 anywhere up to now.

How do you get free delivery?

Will these work with the ZyXel PLA401 plug?

Cheers.

Sorry - just noticed it's free delivery on orders over £49.99 so you need to buy something else to qualify. I have amended the title accordingly.

I've got no idea about their compatibility with other HomePlug brands - I've just got these...

The BT ones will be the non-Powerline/Homeplug variety, will they not?

The Zyxel 401 units should work with them, but I've found the Zyxels not to work well with other brands, despite being supposed to.

I could never get any other brand to work with my Zyxels

They do actually work with my Linksys ones, but the 'House' light doesn't come on on the Zyxels when I do this.

Anyone know who the manufacturer of the eBuyer powerline adapters is?

forums.ebuyer.com/sho…006

just want to point everyone to the above thread on ebuyer forum.

product does NOT comply with safety regulations etc mentioned on forum and there is an on going argument with ebuyer.

DO NOT BUY.

There are alot of these around, and all the talk of "non-compliance" seems to come from one person.

Is that really a reason to shout "DO NOT BUY"?

I'm not convinced.....tell me more

CS

Great product they are not cross compatible even with same homeplug firmware unless by same manufacturer in my experience. For online gaming, file transfer and general network use its impossible to explain how much better these are than wifi.

Dont listen to the idiots going on about safety and interference. They are small minded and dont understand what they are talking about. Its usually the sad geek ham radio users as they interfere with some ancient radio system that no one uses or cares about anymore.

Excellent product trying to be spoiled by .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% of the population.

Ignore anything and everything they say, they lie and dont know what they are talking about.

100% safe 100% legal these things are the future and totally the way forward. Within 10 years most people will be getting their high speed broadband via the national grid using these things.

I really like the fact these things spoil ham radio and encourage everyone to use them as they are so much better than Wi fi. Maybe these people will join the 20th century ?

Obviously you know what you are talking about then

good product got 85Mb ones of these, my son will be getting them and i may just upgrade. much better than wifi

I picked up one of these the other week to use with the tv gear (xbox's , media player etc), it manages about 150Mbps on my wires.

As a tip also grab an old white sky router from ebay for £10-£15, turn off dhcp on these and they turn into a cheap switch, plug that into the homeplug and you get 3 ports and another wi-fi point.

will this help the xbox (suffers from lag)

im keen on something like this but can someone advise me. I have a n+ router but still cannot get a signal in my garden which is only 45 ft from my router, I upgraded it from a g+ which i got a signal in the garden from fine but figured N+ would be better for the ps3 on-line play speeds. So if i buy these do i just plug on into the electric near the router and the other elsewhere in the home and it all works or do i need to do/add something else?

Katya1971 - No you have the right idea thats what you need to do. Of course you need a spare ethernet socket in your router to plug this into.

I have these and I only get 4mbps from them and yes I havent got any surge protectors or extension leads involved but my wiring is 41 years old which wont help and they are going from upstairs to downstairs (so probably different ring mains).

Despite this, its better than wi-fi over the same distance and it streams movies, photos and music without any problem even at this speed.

These plug into your ethernet ports katya1971, i.e. back of ps3 ethernet port to mains.... Then the 2nd one to the back ethernet port of the router to the mains..... So this won't help with your wireless problems.... Maybe move your router closer to the window and point one of the aerials towards the garden or something?

PS3 doesn't support N speeds. N routers WILL work with it you just won't see N speeds.

One of these plugs in to the router and then a mains socket nearby, the other plugs in to the laptop/ps3/whatever and then into a mains socketnearby. Nothing else required.

Anyone have experience with playing HD material using 200mbs home plugs? and is it fast enough for that?

Thanks

Most HD media streamers only have 100mbps network connectivity and you should get better than that with 200mbps home
plugs(you wont get 200!) I have an Egreat M34A (great for the price!) HD video streamer and I can watch 720p and 1080p .MKV's
fine with it via home 200mbps home plugs.

Im really interested in this product but dont know alot about powerlines?
Current wireless network is constantly problematic although Im sure its our crappy O2 wireless box, so been looking at alternatives.

If this works better, what is involved in setting it up? What else would I need to purchase? Is there any decent links explaining the product and setup, because I havent managed to find anything that makes sense! lol

All we currently use at the moment is an O2 wireless router via ADSL.
Things we have linked to the internet are - 2 laptops, wii and PS3.

Any advice from the people that know what theyre talking about? lol

i have some 200mbps, and when i FTP to the xbox upstairs in master bedroom, i get about 2 megaBYTES per second. again as someone mentioned 40 year old wiring, and no extension plugs. you will never get anywhere near the 200mbps(20megabytes) due to interference etc, also if you have a network card that only does 100megabits you wont get over 10 megabytes persecond.

poweline are dead easy to setup, plug it in to the wall at one end the other into your device. the adapters are given IP addresses and you can connect to them via your web browser to configure settings such as encryption.

I bought these last week. Really easy to setup you dont even need to use the supplied software unless you want to change the network name (which I believe is the only security feature you can change). The units come with Intellon PowerPacket Utility which appears to be the OEM chipset manuafacturer of these units, the INT6400 chip inside is the same chip in some of the big brand names like ZyXEL and Linksys.

I have Devolo 200AV home plugs - they looks like 3-way adapter plugs, but with just a network port outlet. All I do is plug the first homeplug into a power socket near my Router, plug a network cable into a spare port on the router and the other end into the first homeplug. Then plug the second homeplug one into a power socket near where I want to use a PC/laptop. (It doesnt have to be on the same ring main either. Some of the later plugs have a switch to encrypt the transmissions so only a 'paired; plug can connect. Some also have software that you can run on your PC to pair up the plugs. I don't think you have to do this step - but if you don't, and you live in a block of flats there is apparently a chance other people can stick in their own homeplug and utilise your broadband and network) Then I Plug another network cable into the second homeplug and into the PC. Fire up the PC, and the router will allocate an IP address as though the PC was connected directly to one of it's ports. So, to sum up homeplugs are like having a very long bit of Ethernet cable plugged into your router, they are infinitely better than Wi-iFi and far simpler to set up.

Thanks for the info. Rep added :).

You won't get 200mbps speed anyway. The small print for all of the 200mbps will tell you that it is 100 in and 100 out.

Unless you've got Gigabit cards in your pc/laptop/router, you are limited by the slowest common item anyway (usuallu 100mbps card in your pc for example).

Thanks for reply s, im getting good speed with the ps3 from my router, my problem lies with the router coverage to the garden. I have n card in the netbook and also now a n+ router but still no signal in the garden and its a mere 40 to 45 ft max with only a patio door as obstruction. I dont understand why i got a good coverage with the G+ router in my garden and then upgrade to N+ and i get nothing. I phoned belkin who advised me to upgrade the firmware but after doing so i still had no joy.
I have plyed with the security settings and changed them about and have had to currently resort to WEP due to my android phone not supporting WPA-PSK .

Any advice i would be pleased to hear , as i have to now take my dongle to the garden to use netbook which seems really silly.

Hi m8 if you got the same ones I got with BT vision (comtrend 200mb homeplugs) then these definitely wont conflict in any way.

Personal abuse and small minded inaccurate bigoted comments are totally uncalled for.

If it weren't for these people, who probably helped pioneer some of todays technology, you would probably still be using an abacus.

Radio interference is a real problem and if it affected the emergency services radio spectrum then I'm sure it would be a totally different issue.

As it happens, I agree these kind of products are the way forward but provision needs to be made for better intereference shielding on some of the cheaper brands.
