Is this similar to other powerlines where you connect the ethernet at one part of the house and take the connection to the kitchen for example without the need for a 20m ethernet?
Yes that is correct kingp1n
Available in stock nationwide? I don't like the idea of spending extra fees to collect this (in my case, it costs £6 just to collect it if I spend below £40), otherwise spending £40 maximum to get it delivered to my house for free.
Slow speed. Buy av2000 instead

Slow speed. Buy av2000 instead



AV2000 are about £100 so not a like for like.. For most requirements these will do the job. I've run AV500 TPLINK for several years, including streaming 1080p video. Heat added
I've just bought the BT ones with the extra plug,these comparable to them so I cancel that order(but sacrifice the plug) or should I stick with them?
My girlfriend has a couple of Powerline ones
In the annex where she love, internet cuts off as soon as the PS4's power is turned on.. works well with PS3 though... so think they can be a bit temperamentalz

Exactly, who is pulling 2000mb a second on their home network? 100mb would do me in any scenario.

Weakest link determines strength of a chain . These things work at full spread only in ideal conditions. I had av500 many years ago but now only use av2000 since last 2-3 years . Av2000 connectors are not very expensive either if you look around.

Find it really hard to take anything you say seriously with comments like this. In fact, it’s usually easier just to do the opposite.

Why are you recommending AV2000’s when they’re only faster and not more reliable (which is what people want). The connection quality will be just as good as 500s and at nearly £100 a pop you’re getting into Mesh WiFi territory.

Unless you're interested in network transfer speeds you do not need anything faster. No ISP in the UK will offer speeds anywhere near this. Best to have a little knowledge beforehand...
Too much Information!

Bit of a sweeper there. I’m on a Gigabit isp and all my powerlines are now the weakest link.

No, a wifi extender will give you a stronger wireless signal - this will basically allow you to run a network cable across your house mains wiring, but you still need another device attached at each end.
You can use it to attach another wifi access point at the other end, which will then extend your wifi, but on its own it is not a wifi extender.
