Thought some people might find this handy especially good if you have weak WIFI in certain areas of the building. If you visit my place you will find lots of gige powerlines scattered about

This kit is designed to turn your existing powerline into a high-speed network, reaching speeds of up to 600Mbps. No need for drilling or extra wires, just plug it into an existing socket and you're network will be up and running. Plus, it has an integrated power socket, which allows an additional device or power bar to be connected to the adapter as though it were a normal wall socket.

Key Features:

  • Provides up to 600Mbps1 high speed data transmission over a home's existing electrical wiring, ideal for lag-free HD or 3D video streaming and online gaming
  • Integrated power socket makes sure that no power outlet is going to waste
  • Plug and play design and easy encryption on a push of pair button
  • Power-Saving Mode automatically reduces power consumption by up to 85% (this may vary depending on network condition and environment factors)

I think the AV2000 ones beat these AV600 ones by about 3x. Whether the AV600 ones cover all your needs is another matter. Most people would be happy with AV600.

I read on here also that the 1200 ones were actually better than the 2000 ones. Not sure myself but worth a look Cracking price though
I have had AV2000 for last 2 years. Want to buy even faster now, not slow it down using these old stock.

I wonder some one tells you to jump in well and you will do it . Some people get paid to sell old junk and gullible fall for it. I have had no problems with AV2000 only praise for the fast speed and reliability.

These are terrible if you don't live in a new build or have had a rewire recently.
Good price for pass through.
I used to rave about homeplug networking units but I have gone off them in a big way. There does not seem to be one manufacturer who makes units to last - they all seem to die in just over a year. Plus there are all the problems of repeaters with different SSIDs. I have moved over to a good mesh system and the difference is huge. The BT units are good and the Google ones too.
These do work, they're great in fact, if your living in a relatively new home, but for old homes you probably won't find any improvement.

True, I've got 2 Google wifi point's in my home. I now get full connection everywhere in my home. Still limited to 38 mbps down, because of TalkTalk
£2 click & collect under £30 ....you must be kidding.

Ice cold from me
I have a mix of these and the older AV500 units, 4 of each. One of them goes to a detached annex and still gets a reasonable speed. A lot does depend on the wiring and what you need them to do. Never had issues with them and the price is good.
I'm using AV1200 units in order to network my desktop PC which sits in the garage. Wired points are great because you can use them for wake on lan.

My house is 25 years old, and with the garage on a different circuit, I get around 11MB/sec transfer speeds which is around 90mbps. With AV600 units I get just over half of this, which makes sense I guess.

Great story, I know
Oos
Have these and they randomly seem to unpair (and thus kills the connection until you then re-pair). Annoying at times.

Had these in my old house (new build) no problem in 3-4 years, moved into my new house (1800's) ... drops most weeks about 3 times
Save money and wire your house properly, drill through walls if you have to. These things will disconnect constantly and add about 13-20ms lag to your connection. Doesnt matter which model youll get. Crap.

Now then I’m only going on what a few mentioned on a separate deal post as I’m no expert myself, something to do with the AV1200 being qualcom or something. I’m sure they may be fine for you but I was just adding info I was given to help anyone so Pipe down. I was going to try the AV2000 as there slightly cheaper than the AV1200 but the reviews are crap. Would imagine there all same though

We live in a new build and they're sound as a pound in a beggar's bowl.

Just gutted I bought mine from Tesco a few months ago for a fair bit more when I could have waited for these because I ain't needed 'em that much yet, life is cruel
Controversial but mine from 2-3 years ago still work fine speeds are slightly better than WiFi but with an average of 20 devices on thw WiFi at once it defintely makes a difference being wired.

My place was built in the 1960s.

My house is filled with these powerline adapters. They run at, or very close to full speed.

Can't speak for everyone else but I don't have any issues whatsoever. Quality products.


So
Bummer. Seems to be out of stock.

When was it last rewired? I'd guess a lot later than the 1960s.
Would something like this work to get WiFi in an out house? About 10-15 meters down the garden

Same here - used to recommend them to everybody - now I find them unreliable and generally poor.

It's never been rewired

It may do, some powerline kits come with built in WiFi hotspot. Something like the TL-WPA4220 kit. You plug one in near your router ideally, then the other WiFi one to nearest socket to your outhouse. The less you put between the WiFi plug and the outhouse, the better. My WiFi from that kit is in an upstairs bedroom and the WiFi signal is still fairly strong outside in the garden.
Out of stock
I have Netgear, been running for over three years in a house with 20 year old wiring. My kitchen is on a seperate loop so occasionally get a drop, I simply reach over to the unit and switch it off and then on again, it then connects within 3 seconds. If the house didn't have two loops it would probaly never disconnect.
