So are they no better than the 85mbps ones?

I heard they are great for streaming 1080p thats all I care about.

Yes well worth the extra £15. You wont be able to reliabily stream 1080p content with the 85 mbps plugs. Plus they wont work i some houses wiing properly (ie ver different circuits)

THis is a good price for these.

has anyone found any reviews on theses apart from the one on amazon ?

I bought this exact same pair a couple of weeks ago and they work very nicely to me.

I have my laptop in my room and the PS3 connected to the TV in the living room, streaming a 1080p video from the laptop to the PS3 wasn't working as the router is the living room with the PS3 (the PS3 is connected by cable) and the laptop was connecting to them using wireless

The wireless was not quick enough as I needed around 80mbps real speed. I was about to buy an N wireless router but this is cheaper and quicker.

Now the two rooms connect at 170mbps, as my router is 100mbps I have a real speed of ~100mbps, it is like having a network cable from my room to the living room. I can stream anything perfectly now

Recommended.

cheers gelilloabad, was trying to find reviews before ordering, your advice helped, all I want to do is connect a ps3 to the internet in another room

silly question again,

when it says av adaptor can it only be used for streaming or can I connect a ps3 and a pc to the internet in another room instead of wireless

Funny how you posted the deal but dont know much about it.

Yes you can connect a ps3, 360, wii through this without wifi, I believe lol

Any views on this:http://wificentral.co.uk/product/200...L-200-AVH-PUSH


Well, at £39.44 each (plus delivery), they're nearly twice as much for a start!

thanks waqas

I know I posted the deal but been looking to buy some of these for a couple of weeks, new to them but saw a deal posted for 85mb adators earlier thought these would help people looking to buy, thought it was a good deal

isn't that what the site is about , help each other get a bargain

was waiting for these at this price, thanks heat + rep added

anyone know if these are good for streaming HD 1080p movies? Also, what's the file transfer speed over them? over 10megbytes a sec?

EDIT: Belkin Powerline HD ones are the benchmark i think, but to get real 100mbps at least would be perfect for streaming anything.

you are so right! Good to see your awake :thumbsup:

can someone tell me if it is possible to mix these with 85mb ones as i have already but would like to upgrade some parts to 200mb.

Will these work with the ebuyer 200mb with plug pass through?

+1 - are these compatible with the 85mbs ebuyer ones on special at £30 (not all of my lan needs the same speed)?

200mbps & 85mbps adapters are not compatible with each other.

Hi asked the question before wondered if anyone knew the answer to this

Does anyone know if i plug one downstairs with the cable modem connected can i plug the other one upstairs with the router connected to it so basically router upstairs and cable modem downstairs?

I see no reason why that would not work. I don't imagine virgin support being very helpful with this configuration though

They are an alternative to using cables or wifi to connect your computers to your internet connection. They are unlikely to make your internet faster but may be desirable if you have a big house with very poor wireless signal in some areas or if you want to stream high quality video over your network.

It's simple:

At point A you have your router.
At point B you have your pc or console or anything that takes an ethernet cable :P

These help you connect point A and B through the use of your electric wiring around the house.

Internet/router - ethernet cable to homeplug @A - magic over electric - homeplug @B to ethernet cable - another router or a device with an ethernet port.

hi can add a (2 Port RJ45 Ethernet Network Connector Splitter Adapter) to point B plz?
thank u

I ordered these ]Netgear XAVB101 200mbps adapters but managed to get them online for only £49 using a discount code or two.

How do they compare to this offer?

hotukdeals.com/ite…pac

I already posted this deal;)

And can highly reccomend them!

Can you use a wireless router to extend your wireless network with these?
I have a 3Com router spare, that has WDS (but won't work with my sky sagem router).

They are an alternative to using wireless, or conventional network cable connections. You plug the two adaptors into standard electrical plug sockets, and using some kind of witchcraft they send your network signal into your home electricity supply and communicate with each other. That means you can plug one in downstairs, and one in upstairs, and not have to drape a great long cable all the way up the stairs. It's proper space age voodoo stuff :-D

(You still need 2 little network cables obviously - one from your router to the first plug adaptor, and one from the second adaptor to your computer).

only if on the same ring main :thumbsup:

went for this deal at the end as it has 4 ports but its only 85mb

misco.co.uk/app…328

Hiyas - how can I make these work with sky bb???

Thanks

sonofaah;8302126

Hiyas - how can I make these work with sky bb???Thanks



plug one in a socket next to the adsl router and the other in a socket near the item you want to connect to it. Then insert the network cables as appropriate.

Sonofaah,

This is not a router, simply a way of extending the range. You should be able to get connect the Sky BB Router using a standard ethernet cable - the same way as you would if you were connecting a computer to your router using a wired connection instead of wireless. Most routers are supplied with a short ethernet cable, if not you can buy one cheap from the usual computer shops or 7dayshop.com/cat…mp= as there is no postage cost.

So at one end is the router plugged into the phone socket. You connect an ethernet cable from the router to the mains socket containing the 1st adapter. In the other room, you connect another ethernet cable from the 2nd plug adapter to the computer.

only if on the same ring main :thumbsup:



will this work if my router is upstairs plugged into a socket and my computer is downstairs plugged into the other socket. Looking in the electric mains box there is a switch for upstairs sockets and a separate one for downstairs sockets.

does that mean they are not on the same ring main???

They're 200Mbps with is really 100Mbps each direction (upstream and downstream) so in perfect conditions you'll get 100Mbps, which is around 10 megabytes per second.

In normal use however you'll probably not be hitting those kind of speeds unless you're only doing short distances.

That means they won't work for you, as the downstairs one will not impact on the upstairs circuit - from electrical safety point of view be very grateful for this!!
you can test if they are the same circuit by putting lamps in and then tripping one of the switches

so can you pair these up with other make 200mb homeplugs?

Thanks for that. Saved me the hassle of returning the plugs.

The house was rewired about 7 years ago and the electrician separated upstairs and downstairs sockets and lights.

I have a pair of 200mbps av adaptors - and have not yet been able to stream a 1080i video file to the ps3 using these without it being a stutter fest. Not the av experience I thought it would be...
