Obviously worthy of something as you "wasted" 30secs posting this.

"WiFi range extender".....the clue is in the name. I have one of these and it is great for extending the range of my wifi . Always found TP Link gear to be well worth the money.
Just in case anyone wants one of these saw 5 last week in the small Acocks Green Sainsburys store but it was already marked up at £15 didn't post it though so heat for op

Yes these are called Wifi extenders but do not extend the wifi very far and only re-transmit the signal by 50%.

TP Wifi powerline extenders are much better.

Now that you've modified to say "Wifi powerline" rather than just "powerline" your comment makes more sense.
I go to that store too, small world

I'm easy to spot......yelling at my kids to stop fighting & loitering around the baking or technology isle
I've got one- manages to boost the signal to the bottom of my garden (100')
I have 2 of these from Sainsburys (both at £15, but months apart). The ones Sainburys are selling are the V2 model, the ones on eBay are often the V1.1 model. According to TP-Link there is a V4 model, but whether it has ever been seen in the UK is another matter. These WiFi extenders work, they work well (once setup) and the mains pass-through is useful. That is not to say setup is always as easy as it might be. The WPS setup is supposed to be easy, but can depend on your other network equipment. Accessing the device via the rj45 port (for a full setup, most parameters can be altered) can be somewhat frustrating. The device has an Auto (default) setting for DHCP. This is necessary, if you try to rj45 connect directly to a PC (DCHP ON). You can also rj45 connect via your LAN (DCHP OFF). However, doing this sort of thing may on occasion, prove a bit of a head-banger (use the reset and try again). This extender can also be configured as a WiFi HotSpot. To date, both mine have been reliable. All things considered, at £15 this is a good buy.
