I got a pair of these last time they were reduced and been really happy with them. Much better performance than WiFi via my mesh routers for TV streaming. I'll order another pair now for other TVs.
I know! I have a pair, and have been waiting for the Argos £5 £10 promotion (also known as paying more for deals) to finish for them to drop to 39.99...but Santa came early They are fast and reliable.
correct me if I am wrong, does it work as an ultra long internet cable only, no wireless

It works over the power-lines in the building, so you plug one Ethernet plug in one end, and the router at the other,and an easy way to connect at Ethernet speed without the long cable. This one does not have the wireless capability. Hope that helps.
Has anyone tried using this on a power extension strip and does it work?
Performance reduced or simply does not work over power extension strips?
Thanks
I've not had much luck over the past ten years or so of using them with extention leads. Intermittant, or no signal, or slow speed.
Anyone using these with a router on the other end to feed multiple devices?
for example VDSL router to source powerline to receive powerline to 4 port router to 4 devices
So just to make sure this would suit my needs. I would like to have a better wifi signal in the garden and the garage. If I plug one of these in my living room connected to my main Wifi router via an Ethernet cable and then the 2nd one goes in the garage at the back of the property and I connect a wireless router via an Ethernet cable to it, would I then have wireless connection via my new router or it only for one device on the other end?

The whole point of the pass-through design is you plug this into the socket first, then plug the other stuff in to that, so even surge protector won't interfere with the throughput of data
So these are 1000MBit speeds (good).

Plug one device into your wall directly, connect to your router via Ethernet network cable.

Plug the second device into the wall at your chosen location. NB: this needs to be on the SAME ring main. ‘Should’ work upstairs /downstairs but ‘may’ not work n extensions, garages etc.

You can then connect your laptop/Tv etc to the device and you have a network.

You can add extra power lines to more wall sockets and don’t need to do anything else to configure them other than push the ‘join’ button on the new device really (as the original two are paired In the factory).

If you have more devices that you want to connect, you could buy a cheap 5-port router (circa £15) and then connect the netgear device to this and then to other devices to the router.

You can get some devices that have a WIFI broadcaster built into the second power line device to give you a new ‘hot spot’

You can also plug a second router into the power line and extend your wifi if you can configure it to access point mode and change settings (same SSID/ different channel / no DHCP). Etc.



Single port
Any cheaper alternative to those, possibly with also the second powerline being itself wireless extender? I kind of recall of a similar combo on HUKD but can't find it

Yep they are amazing. I don't have these ones but the ones I have are quality. I bought them with the knowledge of not expecting much but I was left shocked. My Internet connection wirelessly was about 10-20mpbs but it kept dropping out as the router is 2 floors down so I decided to buy adapters and I now get between 70-90mbps
Perfect was sure you could add a router to extend the ports on the receiver, just wondering if people have found this degrades the throughput at all.

not at all, I've had no real drop or noise causing lost packets. I've had few different types but these are my favourite. I've reserved two from Argos already for collection. Far easier than rewiring with CAT6

They must have improved a lot since last time i bought some many years ago..
We are in a 3 story property with the main VDSL in the Garage, I did manage to Cat5 to the living room above but the Mrs does not want me knocking holes in the walls to get from the room up to the loft so these may just fit the bill until we next decorate.
You could see if it is on the same spur, if the "downstairs ring main" is switch off does it turn off the garage -- it may be it has its own circuit. There is a good discussion here: electriciansforums.net/thr…59/


Good luck!
Thanks Packmoor-Pony and TurGe.. I will have a browse when I get a chance.
Will this be compatible with a different brand WiFi poweline bought separately so this wired to the router and the WiFi one in the other room

Here is my set up VDSL --> router--> power plug, from that i have two other power plugs around my house with 8 port switches on each running servers and PCs etc, so far no issues.

Having said that, you have to remember that my house compared to yours will be different. Age of the wiring, how many ring mains, if you have a sneaky spur socket, induction devices that can cause interference. All of these will make a difference.

As has also been said, never have these on an extension cable, i did a test at the out-laws and their internet speed went from 6 to 60mb/s when i just moved the power plug off the extension cable.

In the end of the day, buy them give them a try if they do not work, take them back.
Would I be right in understanding that the only difference between the pass through and non pass through version is the the passthrough version keep a socket free to plug other things into?

I've read users having issues when plugged into surge protected extensions, as stated here:- bt.custhelp.com/app…694 which seems to be where that image is from.

If you lose speed using it in an extension without surge protection, then I'd suggest as an experiment trying it in the socket furthest from the cable to see if that works any better, in case it is caused by signal reflections.
Been after a couple of these,are these not wireless as i need to put 1 in my garage to make the signal better,don't fancy leaving a router plugged in.

Would i be looking at something like this? Link

check the fuse box, if the garage has it's own fuse then not on same ring
