TP-Link AV600 Passthough power line kit

Turn Any Power Socket into an Internet Outlet
TL-PA4020PKIT AV500 two-port powerline adapter with AC pass through starter kit is an easy way to extend your home network.

Imagine this; your router is on the first floor, while your wired only smart TV is upstairs. You might contemplate on drilling a hole on the ceiling and running dozens of yards of Ethernet cable through the hole and finally to the destination, which makes your home messy and untidy.

The TL-PA4020PKIT two-port powerline adapter with AC pass through starter kit makes your existing socket not only a way to provide power but also a way to transmit Internet connection. It saves you all the trouble and is an easy way to fix the problem.

Think of two of these plugs as being a very long extension cable. Ideally you would be able to simply run a cable from router to PC/TV or whatever, but as you said, you can't.

So you take one of these plugs and plug it into a power socket next to your router, and you take the other and plug it in next to your TV. Now you use a small LAN Cable ("usually" supplied) to connect your router to the first plug, and another small LAN cable to connect the second plug to your TV.

Internet signal comes into router and then goes out of router, through LAN cable 1 into plug 1. It then runs through your electric wiring until it comes to plug 2, at which point it exits plug 2, goes through LAN cable 2 and into your TV.

Job done. Both plugs are identical so you can't mix them up. You also only actually need 1 plug to put your Internet signal into the wiring, but can have "practically" as many as you like taking it out at the same time. So even if you had 5 TVs, you would need 5 Plugs to take the signal out, but only 1 plug to put it in, so a total of 6 plugs.

And before someone points it out, yes I know that if some of those TVs were sat together, you could feed 2 TVs from one plug, as each plug has 2 LAN cable outlets, so potentially do it with less than 5 plugs :-)

old junk .Current speed is av2000



sure, for £100.... also what is the throughput rate of av2000 - obviously not 2x gigabit, that's just the port speed (two ports) not the transmission speed, like the older homeplug av tops out at about 80mbps on the single port in real life, not gigabit.

as for "old junk", av600 is just av2 gen1 non-mimo, hardly old.

super price, but not wifi capable

If you plug one into another Wifi router and set it up as an access point it will work.

Ill be going to Bridgend Asda after work, How many were left / where were they?

It was the clearance section by the dvds at the back of the store and had only just started stocking it up so I'm unsure how many they had.

This is the bargain of the week.

£39 in Leicester

Got no chance.

Yes, but rest assured that pretty much all of what he said is correct.

Super cheap.

Using 'old junk' like this for a Steam Link box to play PC games in my sitting room. Works flawlessly.

Just picked a kit of two of these up from Amazon Warehouse for £28, split with a mate. £14 for one, great deal.
Using with my recently purchased cheap Steam Link to game in the living room too, having a lot of fun.
THIS deal is super hot:)

Don't know how this works, could anyone please correct me if I have got this wrong?

I have a fixed wifi router in the storage cupboard - I have a TV in the lounge which I want to connect via LAN rather than wifi
I just buy this and plug into any existing wall power socket an it turns it into a LAN outlet which I can connect to TV or other device via a LAN cable?
Thanks

Yet something that would more than adequately meet the needs of probably (and yes I'm guessing) 99%+ of people reading this thread, as well as those that aren't. I have a 200MB Virgin download, and have that hardwired to my laptop on the other side of the house (And max that speed out daily). Other than that connection, there is nothing else I can think of that would really require more throughput than this could give.

At the price stated, this is an absolute gift for most people, never mind a bargain.

Great, thanks.....so as I have a 100 Mb/s fibre this should be fine with its 600 Mb/s limit, no point looking for a more updated and expensive model with higher speeds as some people have suggested as that might be useless with my current broadband?

It should be more than adequate for what you want. Also don't think that you could get 600MB through one of these, as the ports are likely to be 100Mb ports anyway. That aside, even if you wanted to put 100MB through these, you wont need to because it's highly unlikely that your TV will pull anything like that for what it needs.

Just a heads up, there is no free internet though :-) so if your laptop or pc or whatever is downloading something at say 50Mb/s, and your mobile was pulling something in at 20Mb/s, you will only have 30Mb/s left of your ISP limit of 100Mb/s for your TV. These plugs will let you run 'up to' 100Mb/s, they don't give you 100Mb/s regardless of what else you are doing. Chances are though that you will never need anything like your limit just for the TV (Unless...... maybe it is full up 4K streaming etc, but I have no idea what sort of data rates they command to be honest :-) )

​Last time I checked it was £59.99 from box.co.UK for av2000 adapters

sounds like this would help me, anyone else found them??
