For all those of you let down like me by Ebuyer over their recent deal on these (they confirmed the order at 9.15am and then over a day later cancelled the order due to lack of stock even though I know of Hot deals members who ordered hours later than me and got the product) here is a better deal, the only downside is you have to buy a pair. On the plus side they work out to £24.98 each + free P&P cheaper than Ebuyer

Excellent deal. Mine turned up yesterday, have to say I am very impressed with them.

for those wanting a single unit ebuyer have them back in stock at £26.99

ebuyer.com/pro…754

I'm afraid I accidentally repeated this deal. My apologies.

Why the hell this wasn't hotter than this is beyond me. This is an excellent deal. Have ordered mine.

The Advent ones are only £19.99 each at] PC World, but only 85mbps.

great price voted hot

Can these be used to link an xbox 360 upstairs to a router downstairs? Would they be faster than the official wireless adapter?

Cheers,

Yes and yes!

mrpink123;3525727

Yes and yes!



Much faster I believe. I'd rather invest in another plug than a wireless adapter for the 360.

how do these get around plugs being on different circuits? .. e.g. upstairs usually has it's own circuit as does downstairs, kitchen etc ...

Yes and not really. Unless you have super-duper-mega-fast broadband the wireless will more than likely be fast enough

Using EMF induction into your home's plumbing (copper piping). Upstairs, your bathroom copper piping connects back into the upstairs ring mains via a thermionic radiator valve. Therefore, if you only have a coal fire, these won't work in your house between floors. (in tis case speak you your neighbour to see if you can utilise his gutter downpipe)






:-D Seriously....all your home's mains is sourced from the one cable into your house...& all the ring individual circuits you mention connect back to it...ie they're all joined (albeit on the other side of the fuse/circuit breaker...but this is not a problem unless the fuse is blown!!)

Does anyone know if these are compatible with solwise PL-200AV's, they are both homeplugs and it would be great to add two more.

These are a great choice for homeplugs - only minor downside is that they're best plugged directly into the socket (rather than on an extension lead) and they're a little bulky. I live in a house that's about 70 years old so they needed to be plugged in to the socket to get the best speeds. They come out from the socket 6-7cms, which is a bit of a pain if you hide your sockets behind tv cabinets/sofas etc. Just a minor gripe. Your mileage may vary...

Other than that, I got these to replace wireless for my 360 and they stream movies a treat, which wireless didn't.

Just wondered if anyone has real-world experience of 200Mbps Homeplugs in comparisson to 85Mbps versions?

My 85Mpbs models reach maybe 20% of their quoted speed, but if I could get more out of these then they might be worth it... Thank you!

Anyone know if these can be used with existing 85Mbps versions? Are they Homeplug 1.0 compliant?
I already have 5 x 85Mbps versions and don't want to change them.

Cheers
(I did ask this question in the other repeated hot deal but this one seems to be being used)

Can you mix and match different 200mbps brands, I currently have 2 devolo ones and need a third but these are half the price...

Mine arrived yesterday

They are very good and much better than my dodgy wireless signal.

They are a bit large in the plug socket, you may need a pen or something similar to to turn them on or off, but I can live with that. But at least there is still room to plug another thing into a 2 gang socket.

These also have 128-bit AES encryption which can be configured on each plug to make them more secure.

Hello

Would the 85mpbsbe enough to stream 1080p films over a network?

Thanks

The Homeplug site says "While HomePlug AV compatible adapters do not interfere with the operation of adapters supporting earlier standards, they do not detect them and cannot form part of a network with them"

Hope this helps

I'm fairly sure that all powerline adapters are compatible with other powerline adapters OF THE SAME SPEED! bloody caps lock

so 85mpbs all work with other 85mbps - not matter what manufacturer
200mbps all work with other 200mbps - blah blah blah

I've got a netgear, 2 zyxels and a random maplins thing all working fine in my house.
Transfer speeds aren't anything approaching 85mbps, but they knock the equivalent wireless transfer speeds into a cocked hat.

No, my old 85s used to struggle steaming a 300mb divx, never mind full HD. The 200mb are perfect, I've used them for streaming HD content to my 360 for the last year

definitely not compatible with the 85Mb version but they can coexist. As regards compatibility with other manucturers (AV200) not sure, although I do recall reading (I think) that Netgear stuff will only work with thoer netgear stuff. In my experience using networking kit from a single manufacturer is always a good idea, be it wireless or homeplug.

Anyone worried about the size of these things could look at the PLA-400 which is functionally the same unit, but a more discrete unit with a fly lead and normal mains plug - a bit nicer to look at.

I use and can recommend these, along with the 660HWP router (build in homelplug and wireless)

I've been using Zyxel 200mbps homeplugs for quite a few months now and they're superb. I've also got a new Zyxel powerline router and all the kit works very well.

Forget flakey wireless, this stuff is the answer.

I upgraded from 85Mbps ones to these when the Ebuyer offer was on, and they certainly seem faster. I haven't tried measuring the speed, but video from my Slingbox is much smoother now.

I agree with that. In my house wireless and concrete walls do not work well...

Is this really correct? My next door neighbour and I don't have direct cables to the utility supplier - we share the powerlines so by this reckoning, I could hack into his network. ?????:thinking:

Hi currently I use different manufacturers 85Mbps in my home network (Develo and Solwise) and they work absolutely fine. Still confused about whether I can use these 200Mbps ones with my existing 85Mbps ones as it says on the Dabs website (same price by the way but you pay for posting) they are Homeplug 1.0 complinat: dabs.com/pro…Q3L

Any thoughts?

It's probable your next door neighbour is on a different phase so it would be three doors down you'd have to worry about. But as has been pointed out already, these things use encryption, just like wifi does (if you're sensible enough to switch it on). I've also been told that the electricity meter is supposed to stop the signal but I have my doubts.

No you can't hack into his network unless he also has one of these plugs as well. You need at least two of these for them to work.

In answer to other quesions:

The different speeds do not work together. As someone else has said, they can co-exist, but a machine on the 85 plug will not be able to communicate with one on the 200, and vice versa.

If you plug these into a surge protector, the protector is most likely going to see these plugs' data packets as "spikes" and so it will block them. So best plugged into the socket directly. They also recommend that you check the wiring in your sockets and ensure that thay are tightly screwed in.

They work on different ring mains, as long as the the two mains go into the same fuse box, or even into the same leccy board distribution box. Some people have got them to go further, and beyond, but as a rule, this doesn't happen.

Hope this helps.

say i was streaming a film from 1 room via a computer into another room where the tv is based, what type of solutions are available to control the film ( like tv remote) .

cheers. :thumbsup:

The 85 and 200 can co-exit in the same house but they CANNOT talk to each other.

i.e, 85's can only talk to 85's, 200's can only talk to 200's

Can't say it clearer than that.

If you are thinking that the TV itself is linked to the second homeplug that's not how it works. Apologies if you aren't.

You need two machines with ethernet cables, in which case the solution is the same as it would be for any network set up.
