Replace using the air or long ethernet cables with your electrical wiring to carry your network traffic. Makes your ring mains into a network, in a similar manner that wireless networks does with radio broadcasts, but can be more reliable.

There are concerns since it is a bit noisy across am/fm spectrum.

Check here for a review with loads of diagrams;

Will this be compatible with TP-link 200Mbps Powerline adapters?
I have model number TL-PA201kit; not really up on this stuff.

Is it free to join Makro? I’m eligible to join through my business and it seems as if you can just print off the form and join at a store.

Added: I checked the box and it says HomePlug AV IEEE 802.3 so it should be compatible.

in store only

are they 2 or one in abox its a bit confusing ,,25 plus vat each
thanks

I'm bit thick so could someone please clarify...

This is a a powerline adapter AND a switch, ie two separate pieces of hardware?!?! Or is it just a switch?! If so, any £5 cheapo switch would do the job equally well.

If two "pieces", really good deal.

Thank you

its both ,,
here is the description
The Netgear Powerline Ethernet Adapter with Ethernet switch uses the mains wiring in your house as an Ethernet network, turning a standard power socket into an Ethernet port. This handy adapter extends a high speed Internet connection to any power outlet in order to connect HDTVs, Blu-ray players, DVRs, PCs and game consoles to your network without the need for any additonal network cabling. The builkt in Ethernet switch allows you to connect up to 4 devices through one converted power socket, and also enables you to select which device enjoys the best bandwith thanks to 'Pick a Port' technology. The adapter is easy to install and use, with Push-and-Secure technology to ensure that your network stays safe.

£30 (inc VAT) is just for one unit so you will need two units in a new setup, unless you already have homeplug setup.

New user so forgive the dumb questions. I really want a homeplug set up. Has anyone bought this and is it only the 4-port XAV1004 or is it both this and the XAV101 as well?
Secondly, could a system run with 2 of the 4 port XAV1004's for example with 1 plugged in by the modem and 1 plugged in by the devices (I actually have 4 devices, TV, Blue-ray, SkyHD and Laptop I want to network)?
Thanks in advance

Thank you very much, that makes it clearer.

Fantastic price

Don't have a Makro card unfortunately, anywhere else I can get one for a similar price?

DaveDogma

Thank you very much, that makes it clearer.Fantastic price




But reviews such as this suggest that the actual single-port adaptor (XAV2001) is separate.
Note also, that the description does not suggest it is a "kit"...

Has anyone actually brought one, and confirmed whether or not it is a kit (4-port switch plus a single port powerline adaptor for the other end of the setup)

The one i got is definitely a single switch unit with powerline capabilities and does not come with the single-port adapter.

As confirmed in post #19, this is only a single switch. Checked the ones in Bristol earlier today to confirm.

Loads at Washington store. Bought 2 and they work well my existing Homeplug AV adapters. Might buy a third tomorrow.

If you buy 2 then you just need to turn off DHCP on one otherwise they'll get a little confused. This means you have the benefit of extra ports at both ends.

Edit: Ignore the above as just read the manual online and these don't seem to have the facility to control DHCP like the ZyXel 318S's that I use.

no you arent thick its stupid netgear who are as they dont make it clear and use same packaging for different products...and ive worked in IT / Telecoms for 23 years

This is for the 4 port homeplug switch only, you need to buy a suitable adaptor as the master (that you link to your router/modem (eg Netgear's XAV101)....dont confuse this with the Netgear AV kit that comes with the 4 port switch and XAV101 (the kit use the SAME packaging with slightly different wording and stupidly is called.....XAVB1004 - IDIOTS - almost same code!!)

Netgear XAV101....just make sure you get an adaptor that is Homeplug AV (Homeplug 1.0 devices will NOT work with this) - personally id stick to the same make as you dont know how well some of these manufacturers have implemented the Homeplug AV standard

was gonna say, no you dont....i have 2 XAV1004's and 4 XAV101s - no probs - all running at min 130mpbs to 195mpbs - nearer latter most of the time - and near faultless connectivity, rarely a drop out when i use xboxlive

good question.......ive read that the XAV1004 is a slave only, you cant use it as a master and hook it up to your modem/router, so you need a XAV101 to act as the master....mind you thats what ive read and never tried it....might try it actually.....have 9 of these lol!!
