Anyone know whether these are likely to compatible with 85MBps from another manufacturer?

Not a particularly good price. The 85mbps units are available at similar prices at scores of places. Ebuyer do a much better deal on the 200mbps units, just £15 more (£49.98 free delivery) as I posted a while back.

these are homeplug v1. so if the others support v1 then yes. not too sure if higher versions are backward compatible though

Hot from me especially as it's fee delivery if you order 2 sets (one for me & one for my brother).

H&R added

I would guess that it's a few watts, if that. Certainly not going to be anything at all high.

all the homeplugs I've looked at are

What do they do (in layman terms)?

They send your broadband signal round the wiring circuit of your wall sockets in your house. Plug your modem into one and recieve the signal at any other plug socket using the second one.

Cool. So how does one retrieve the signal from the recieving component? Wired or wireless?

The ones i use are wired although i think wireless ones are around.

Wired. It's basically like putting a lan port next to your equipment even if modem/router is in another room.

Dont they both need to be on the same ring main?

If you want to use these for file transfers or streaming then dont bother, if its just for broadband or an xbox/ps3 connection they're fine. I stupidly bought a set of 85Mb ones for use with my Popcorn, even transferring files to the internal hard drive over them is incredibly slow. Think i'll invest in some 1Gb ones when they come down a touch in price.

I bought a set of these a while back. They're ok when they work, in Win7 RC it will sometimes pickup a 2nd network and stop working.

Disabling and re-enabling the adaptor clears the problem but it is a hassle. I don't use it for anything other than Internet access so couldn't comment on speed, it is faster and more reliable than the wireless signal in my house.

As for being on the same ring mains, my house was rewired shortly before I moved in and the downstairs mains and upstairs are on different circuits. They can be switched off seperately at the consumer box. My PC is upstairs and the router downstairs.

I also believe the signal seeps out beyond your house, I think this is mentioned in the thin manual you get. Your supposed to input a password/code into the software that comes with the units to secure your network. The code is supposedly printed on the plugs but I've tried every code and serial I can find but none work for me...

I think a neighbour could potentially access my network if they had a set, so in my case I've had to secure it at my router.
