"Use code NETWORKING10 to get a further 10% off making this £22.48"

Seems like a decent price for 2 1000 Mbps units. I think there have been similar and better deals in the past, but it's the best I can find right now. It's just what we need.

If you are new to these, don't make the mistakes I made: they need to go straight into a wall socket, so it can be worth paying the premium for the ones that come with a pass-through power socket.

Also, for a lot of uses you don't necessarily need masses of bandwidth. 1000 Mbps might be overkill.

I was looking at a powerline as my wifi router is at back of house and tv at front with poor signal, then realised that it just makes my plug behind the tv an ethernet port.
I got a
Netgear WN3000RP Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender
from argos for £20 and its spot on my whole house now has full wifi signal

Use code NETWORKING10 to get a further 10% off making this £22.48.

I won't be buying as this doesn't have pass through or MIMO so doesn't meet my needs but it's still a good deal so voting hot.

This pack isn't wireless, so no, it won't have MIMO.

Got a set of these the other day. They work perfect for my BT youview box and 4K streaming. Great deal

Thanks OP. Ordered using the code and work voucher scheme, bringing it to £20 for me.

Thanks to 4me2save for the 10% off code.

1 port?

MIMO exists within Powerline specification. Most of the newer gigabit powerlines, including these are "Homeplug AV2" standard which supports MIMO.

Older adapters use "Homeplug AV" and if you use any of these I think it slows the whole network to the older standard.

Do these just plug into a socket and that's it or do you need a wired connection to the socket?

You need a wired Ethernet connection into each of these.

My refund from Currys/PC World has just come through ... I posted this on another thread about these ...

I've been testing these and returned them to PC World. Running a ping tester over 3 days, over my mains wiring, gave about 99.6% success with around 30 seconds total loss of connectivity - not bad but not ideal. Swapped them for some "TP-Link TL-PA8010P KIT AV1200 Gigabit Pass Through Powerline Adapter Starter Kits" - ran same test, zero connectivity issues - 100% ping success - absolutely perfect performance.

My high def TV streams now run perfectly, before they used to break-up and crash after a while.

Could be down to a better chipset, could be the Netgear stuff is just not that great - either way TP-Link works literally perfectly and was worth paying a bit extra for.

Ditto and voted hot.

Keep missing deals on passthrough adapters. Tempted by these but must hold out.

I stand corrected - a new standard for me

Is the networking10 code listed on the website anywhere? Would click and collect a set of passthrough plugs but can't use the voucher. Would show the code in store if I could find it.

Aah, cheers. Was hoping to pay cash.

The TP-Links definitely perform better(in my case, perfect, 100% -zero errors). I went from 600Mb Zyxel adapters, to the 1Gb Netgears, to the 1.2Gb TP-Link - so it may be simply a case of upgrading to more and more capable/modern powerline chipsets produces a more reliable connection.

My advice is run a ping tester over a few days e.g.EMCO Ping Monitor and see what performance you get(helpful if you can compare them with previous powerline adaptors on your network).

If you don't get perfect performance from TP-Link you could try going for more expensive, higher speed, powerline gear and see if reliability improves - Amazon is the obvious retailer to use because of their easy product returns.

These are decent. You'll never see 1000Mbps though, just like any other Powerline adapters.

does it come with ether net cables for each socket?

does it come with ether net cables for each socket?



Yes 2

what is the best way to extent my WiFi signal in a standard 3 bed house. WiFi in the front room downstairs along with dinning room to back, upstairs 2 main bedroom front and back above these 2 downstairs rooms.

I want a better signal in the upstairs rooms after purchasing small smart TVs.... I have connected the TV in my daughter back bedroom but Amazon stick works perfectly 50% of the time but is longest distance from front room, main bedroom has an Amazon box and again connection is 70% of the time.

Do you think I just need some kind of WIFI extender.
