2 x 2 port devolo powerline switches they will do the job of switch and powerline distribution of your ethernet signal . If you plug two items into one you will experience no slowdown at all (due to wireless or ethernet)
Admittedly, only flaw is they are not GIGAbit ports but that us inlikley to be a problemo in real life. Same price as a single device , so in effect this is a BOGOF.

In the modern gadget-filled household, you'd probably need to buy a switch as well

Personally I'd rather have a pair of 8-port gigabit switches and drop a cable through the ceiling. The cost would be about the same, but it would make using a NAS much less painful.

I have an 8 port in the living room, cable through the ceiling to another 8 port in the loft where my servers live. I dread to think what my electricity bill for technology is!

Been using these powerline adapters with HH5 for 2 years now and no disconnects.
Anyone know how well these are with BT TV? I have had the TP Link 500Mbps and they were a constant buffer

It might be your wiring as I have the 500meg tp-links and they work flawlessly with BT.

I've found I always need pass through with these
Strange title, these aren't a replacement for a switch.
Thanks, I just snagged two of these before they realise their mistake
Have seen far to many of these type of products causing lag and we'll below standard throughput.

hardwire or mesh is the only way for me

I also run a pond which eats about 400w, my power bills are a bit on the high side.
Yep, really good. I now have wifi in the garden thanks to one right near the back door of the house.

Does it work with TP LINK Powerline adapter?

Why not?.

It makes sense, after all, is it not from Spiders we get the 'WEB'?, hahahahahahaha. :-D
I used powerline adaptors for a while, they were adequate.
I then spent a couple of hours one Saturday and drilled myself a couple of holes, ran 2 CAT5E cables and terminated them both in wall mounted sockets.
Difference - night & day.
If you've got no other option then powerline should offer better than WiFi. But you'll never get anywhere near the headline speed and if you've got the time and inclination, cable every time (don't always think about the most direct route for cables - I ran mine through a wall upstairs, down the side of the house and back in downstairs, so everywhere is wired now).

It also depends on which plug combination you use. For me, some plug pairs work flawlessly, others disconnect randomly. Again, probably down to how they're wired.

Yum. Boiled fish!
We have about 6 of these in the house (usage depends on children being home), 2 with triple ports + Wi-Fi (+ 2 x 8 port hubs connected to them). They are only 200Mbps, but they have never had any connection problems, even after moving to fibre (40Mb).

Using their Cockpit software, the connections register between about 110-140Mbps (wiring is at least 30 years old).

​i had zero disconnects with sky, just switched to the newest bt hub and cuts out regularly.

like some others have suggested, drill some holes and wire your house up. Some good sites out there to help you out.

I've had issues with Devolo powerlines not working with others. When taking them back to my supplier I was told that Devolo Power over Ethernet has its own technology that won't work with other brands.

Not sure if it is a mistake, yes they have 2 ports rather than the one but they aren't gigabit.
Single port gigabit version are under £20

BT hub and the unavoidable firmware updates, ditched the hub as soon as i could, a real piece of garbage.
They big up how great the wifi signal is, whats the point if the actual connection disconnects randomly to **** firmware.

Bought a TP-link 9980 over two years ago for £50, best purchase in a long time.

Beware powerlines lose speeds over distance, mine only get 20mbs rather then 50mbps internet over a 30m distance, this might just be my houses wiring but one of my friends had the same issue.

Through the ceiling? oO that would look horrendous.
