It is a good price, old but reliable technology as compared to mesh network. Plugs are literally invisible unlike mesh disks. Have some
Very good for the money free delivery
I’ve some wall plugs but so far out of like 350meg download I’m lucky to get 20 via the plugs, bad plugs or something else perhaps? It’s a 5yr old tp link, using virgin but don’t want to buy any more duds!
I have used a slower speed then these previously and found them to be pretty stable and reliable . I used mine to get Xbox360 online and also the TV on the network with pc and found was better connection then WiFi. Not sure how they would be with new tech/bigger files and streaming bit worth a shot if needed. I'll probably use something again when kids are older and require network items.

More pertinent question is, how old is the wiring in the property?

I don't own them, but they should be fairly plug and play. Put one near your router, connect to the router by cable, place the other near the PC/TV/Console etc, connect the device by cable. They normally find eachother with out any issues, sometimes you have to connect them which will probably involve pressing a button on one and then a button on the other to pair them.

Out of the box and connecting wise, all the powerlines i've used connected to eachother the moment i turned them on. Other issues have stopped me using them unfortunately.
These powerline kits are amazing. I took a gamble and bought some TP Link adapters well over a year ago now for my Xbox One as the internet was weak, and ever since I hooked them up the internet has improved drastically, so much that watching 4K YouTube videos is a breeze and I can game online with 0 connection issues. I was getting only about 8-12mpbs and the connection kept dropping out as the hub is 2 floors down but I now get about 70-90mpbs! Honestly they're magic and I would most definitely recommend them if you have weak internet.

Do u connect manually wires from 2nd floor

You get 2 adapters and 2 ethernet cables. One adapter connects to your internet hub via the ethernet cable and the other to the device you're using so in my case it was the Xbox. It was really easy to set up.

Cheers
I would recommend getting some CAT6 cables to use with these the supplied cables are cheap CAT5 with no shielding. Also try and place these as physically close together as you can. The longer the path through your house wiring the slower the connection speed. You will find that plugs on the same ring main (same floor or room) will give you the fastest connection. When the signal has to go through your consumer unit (fuse box) it will be slower. Like between upstairs and down stairs.

Late reply but there's one main feature that could solve your issue,

MiMo - The AV2 standard of these units also used the earth cabling in addition to live and neutral wiring only used in the AV1 standard that you're likely using now. There's two main advantages to that, firstly multiple inputs and multiple outputs (hence MiMo) by it's nature provide the benefits of a faster more reliable connection and secondly, the older standard has poor performance if connecting through different circuits as the breaker / RCD / RDBO in your switchbox acts as a filter to the higher frequency signals. the benefit here is that the earthing in your house should all be connected to each other, bypassing the issue of connecting between different circuits.

I hope I got that all correct. It's been a few years since I looked into it myself but the AV2 units I've had for the last 3 years have been very reliable and can stream 4K without a hiccup.

Thats fantastic, really appreciate the kind update, I'll give that a go

13 years thanks, I also tried a wifi (tp link) extender but that didn't work at all....I'm not a total tech noob but had mixed success with anything really, will give mimo a go and just need a little extender that works after that for the wifi, be nice if the mimo can have wifi bounce from it too

Techie advice if anyone has knowledge!

Would you be able to plug your FTTP modem connection into one of these adapters and move your wireless router to another place in the house, connected up to the other powerline adapter?

I.e. FTTP modem>powerline adapter>powerline adapter>wireless router

As in, your DSL signal rather than an Ethernet signal?

Not sure if it will work... although you can plug the dsl connector into an Ethernet socket (which is how I get mine from the phone point to the router under the stairs), it doesn’t use all the pins and without knowing the specifics as to how this works I’m not sure if the same principal would apply here.

(If I was actually able to physically get at all the bits in my house to test it for you, I would!)

I think so, but in your case you’re using a wired Ethernet connection? I’m wondering if you can swap that connection for these powerline adapters

I have an Ethernet port on the wall, the cable goes across the lounge and comes out under the stairs.

The lounge bits are all behind a load of furniture so not something I can easily get to for trying this, unfortunately

It's to do with the AV rating on the plugs too as well as wiring AFAIK.

AV1000 would only really get you about 100mb in speeds as the speed advertised is usually divided by 10, but this depends on the quality of wiring.

TP LInk do a set of AV2000, they are more expensive but should give you better speeds.

Someone may tell me I'm wrong, but I've looked everywhere to solve the same issue as I've got Virgin 350mb and I'm unable to hard wire devices to the straight to the router so ideally needed homeplugs (would love a good mesh setup, but they're too expensive).
I was told that ethernet power line adapters required a dedicated socket to reduce signal interference from other devices. Seems I might have been misinformed.

Yes you can. I do this myself with a couple of old Powerline extenders, which have been synced so they are "detached" from my other Powerline network.

I run the ethernet output from the BT modem into a powerline, then the other end into a router in my office upstairs.
Really good price. I was looking into these BUT then I found out that the Virgin Wifi Boosters are also Powerline Adaptors too. Tested it out for the first time last night and worked. Just be aware you won't get top speeds when connecting directly to your router via ethernet cable.

I didn’t know that, perhaps it’s best to go down the WiFi extender route something like this TP-Link RE650 AC2600 Universal Dual Band Range Extender, Broadband/Wi-Fi Extender, Wi-Fi Booster/Hotspot with 1 Gigabit Port and 4 External Antennas, Built-In Access Point Mode, UK Plug amazon.co.uk/dp/…NVR

Not sure what you did not understand about that.

Powerline Adaptors (this product) - decent speed
Ethernet cable connected directly to the router - fastest speed possible

But you will? Or do you mean via PLAs?

Good price for this kit, wasn't on offer when I needed some. Instead brought some Tenda PH6 AV1000 (£31.99 Amazon) and another pair recently and they've been faultless. Theorectically upto 125mb/s (1/8), I was getting around 110-115 on average. I find them much more consistent than Wifi even with a good router.
Thanks for posting; we have added this to the Highlights pages
Bought, thank you.
Isn't 300mbp too slow?!?!?!

Further context below regarding internet speed at home:

Estimated peak time speeds:
Download: 38 - 40Mb
Upload: 8 - 10Mb
These are the speeds your line is capable of at peak times.
Current line speed: 38.6Mb
This is a measure of the actual line speed you are now receiving based on the product you have taken.
Minimum Guaranteed Speed: 30.9Mb
This is the minimum speed you should expect to achieve on your line.
