Decent powerline plug with a socket pass-through.

Does anyone know if this would work if it was plugged into the wall but through a timer plug? I am trying to work out a way to limit the wifi time for my sons bedroom.

netgear genie is an app for netgear routers and possibly powerline? you can turn off individual phones consoles computers from Internet with it.

I can't say as I'd recommend that as an attempted solution. Unless his room is in an annexe at the bottom of the garden, he's always going to be able to pick up wifi from the main source in the house, even if he builds a high gain antenna.

Many routers have controls that might be far more useful to you, allow you to block specific devices.

lots of routers have access limiting functions/timers and as said above that would be a more reliable solution than plugging one of these into a timer - the timer may also interfere with the plug limiting its performance. With settings you could block/restrict individual devices on your network and not pull the plug on everyone.

Alternatively, just use 2 wifi routers connected via an ethernet cable (most people tend to have at least one old one from a previous broadband deal, otherwise you can probably pick one up for under £5 in Cash Converters, etc). Use different wifi passwords on them and only give your son the password to the auxiliary one (not your main one, ie the one plugged into the phone socket), and then put the timer plug on the aux router to switch it on/off. Alternatively, you might be able to configure the aux router's settings to limit access as previously mentioned, or you can just disconnet the ethernet cable/manually power off the aux router when you don't want him to access the internet...

If you do go down this route, you will probably have to do a little bit of configuration of the aux router (eg turn off DHCP function since the main router will be doing that, change the wifi channel so as not to interfere with main router's wifi signal, for starters).

I'd like to know of this is a good deal.

What are the real world speeds?

Without pass through available for £39.99 for a pair.

Good deal. Bought 2nd hand of eBay for £34 hours before this was posted.

I think she means: "At the moment my son connects to the home network via wifi. Would what I just suggested work if we changed the wifi password and gave him a wired connection through the powerline?"

It isn't recommended to plug them in to anything apart from the wall socket itself - no timer switches, no extension leads, no surge protectors etc.

Easy way would be to add a restrictions to his device (phone, laptop etc). This can be done via the router admin page by adding the MAC address of the device you want to restrict, and the hours you want to restrict it for.

Do these power line adapters automatically half the speed of your internet if they have two Ethernet ports? Even if you buy a 2 port adapter and only use one port?

No.

How well do these work? I'm thinking about buying a pair for use in a school music studio that cannot access wifi due to sound-proofed walls. The distance from the router would be quite far though.
Does anyone have any experience in a similar situation?

No.



So it only halves the speed if you use two Ethernet cables?

Why would it half the internet speed at all?

All this is doing is extending your wired network in your house to areas that you cannot lay a network cable..

it doesn't halve anything automatically or otherwise.

if your internet speed happens to exceed the maximum throughput of these plugs, then you will only get the plug speed.. if it's lower than the maximum throughput of the plugs (which is highly dependent on where you plug them in and if they are on the same fuse box) then you will get your full internet speed.

To gaurantee they work, the plugs will have to be on the same ring main.. if you are talking about bridging between 2 buildings then it's probably not going to work.. at least not well.

Powerline usually gets about a 1/3 of the advertised speed in ideal conditions as throughput due to encryption etc.If its between floors etc it drops further.

​I'm a newb to this kind of technology, so I'm very much serious. Judging by the heat I've deduced it is good.

do it through the router.. if your on virgin for example, login via 192.168.0.1 (passwords are on back of router and goto advanced options>MAC filtering. you can then select all unique devices on network (either on wired or wireless) and add them to a block list for certain times of the day.

Typical that they have just gone back up to £54.99 just as I decided I need powerline adapters.
