TP Link dual port power line adapter with with WiFi range extender... £25 instore @ Sainsbury's Lincoln

LocalFound 2nd Mar
Found these. Not Av1000 but not a bad price with 2 ports. Not gigabit ports but would work great with an Xbox etc. Also the WiFi extender is a great addition!

These were found in Lincoln. 2 left on the shelves.

Bit of a strange way to vote. AV2000 kits are much much more expensive. AV1000 can sometimes drop into this range but single port no wifi extender.

Can you answer me this genuine question? If the broadband/ fibre coming into my house is 50mb why would I need anything like 2000 or even 1000 out of these devices?

No short answer for that.

but if you do want go the 2Gbps way you need to use cat 7 ethernet cable. Powerline is really only a cheap and easy way to cure dead spots for wifi and will never be as fast or reliable as a proper ethernet network.

Ignore Sam, she just trolls threads about newer tech, I have an old 200Mbps connected to an IP camera with cat 5e at each terminal in an outbuilding that streams 1080p back to the house.

Because you may have more than one PC, sharing files between each other, or from a NAS or other media server. Hence there would be advantages having higher speed traffic within your LAN irrespective of your internet speed.
I've had one of these for a while and I have to restart the Wi-Fi extender about 3 times a week because the speed drops and drops.
Good price. Bargain for more than one port + WiFi.

For internal networking. But ignore the stated speed on the adapters. The ethernet port would only allow a maximum throughout of 100mbps (each way) and in most circumstances you'll be lucky to get anywhere near that from a powerline connection. This is why they stick an old 10/100 port on them because they know full well you'll probably only see 10% of the stated maximum theoretical speed.

Hello, I found the AV1000 series about a week ago and bough the last 2x boxes in Sainsburys for £25 each. I haven't opened them yet. Do you think it is good for the price. I have ordered BT Infinity Unlimited 52MB broadband about a week ago.

hotukdeals.com/dea…223

Just wondering if what I ordered is a good product or end of series and obsolete. I would like it to be a compatible product for my new BT fibre and also keep me going for maybe 2-3 years. What do you think?

OP Here. I actually am using the ones you linked right now.
I benchmarked them and manage to pass about 300mbps through them which isn't too bad. I've not had to reset them once and i've had them about a month.

They also connect brilliantly to my older AV500 kit. I have BT fibre and it will definitely not bottleneck 52mbps internet.

Disclaimer, i've got a newly rewired house with no spurs etc. Your mileage may vary but i'd bet you will get well above 52mbps still.

My expectations are not too high to be honest. I only paid £25 per pair, £50 for 2 boxes. I use wireless internet for my PS4 and downlaodign games tec takes ages. I thought this may be an improvement to that and eradiate the lagging during Fortnite
Anyway, what I bought is AV1000 and I am tempted to open the first box and set it up to see how I get on.

I am definitely have not got the sills to reconfigure or modify them and hopefully it will be an improvement to my current wireless.

Just wondering if the TL-PA7010KIT is an old model and in future if I buy a 2 port or even 3 port one (TP-Link again) would it be compatible with the rest of it , or would I need to upgrade the whole lot? Thanks

They will all be compatible as long as they follow the same AV standard which most do. I have the TP Link set mixed with a BT set and works no problems.

Because the specifications they quote are derived from using them in a lab environment connected over a piece of copper and are the phy rating, not duplexed ie it's a bit of a con!. I had av1200 TP links which on occasion went down to less than 1 megabyte per second depending on the time of day. ie less than 8 megabits!

I run a server in my house and my downstairs TV doesn't get great wifi. If i'm streaming 30-100GB films down to it then it needs decent bandwidth. I try and run cat5e everywhere but sometimes it's not the most feasible. These are a simple way to get network to locations that don't have it.
Also people have got 200-300 mbps internet.

Wow look at the difference.. 10 mb wireless and full 37 mb with the tp link device. That's a result. I've been suffering all this time with the poor internet speed for no real reason

Yeah they're a good alternative especially when reaching the far side of your wireless range. The line also looks more stable than the line for wireless!

Got exactly this model. It's great for extending the WiFi but for internal file transfer it's too slow. Same speed as I would get over WiFi.

I have slightly older wiring but am sure upgrading to a faster model will help.

Currently have an eye out for a good price on a faster version of this.
Does anyone know....does the wireless range extender extend via the power line or is it just a wireless repeater and powerline adapter stuck together. E.g if my shed at the end of the garden has zero wifi to be able to use a repeater, this will still work as it picks up the network from the powerline and then repeats the wifi signal via that?

Thanks
