Tried loads of different brands of PowerLine adapters and find they are great using the ethernet option, but the wireless side of things I find to be a bit hit and miss. Got a few of these in a box ready to sell on eBay. Bought a mesh system instead, far superior.

Is this all I need if I have sky WiFi and want it to reach the garden? Sky hub thing is at front of the house, plug one of these in middle of house to make it reach back garden?

By law if it's sold in the UK with a 2 pin euro plug the seller is legally bound to supply an adaptor.

Yes it's fine. I had problems reaching one of my rooms upstairs. It has increased the range and all OK all over the house. Bargain at this price

stoko

I have 2 TP-Link routers working exactly this way. The Access point mode allows the ethernet ports to function like a switch so you should be just fine.

Thank you to the op, I've just bought one, don't mind that it's 2 pin either seems like a good deal (y)

You might need to manually turn off DHCP in the config software also. On my Asus router, this works fine while still using my Virgin router as the DHCP server. The ethernet ports on it also work fine for local hardwired connections back to the Virgin hub.

I dunno.... 1p sounds like a bargain to me.

Never got round to it. Its a fairly poor stock os, I had to disable auto channel selection to stop the acsd process running the cpu at 100%....maybe that did something

AyCaramba

Have you tried installing Merlin firmware on it?

snatch_master

Agreed it is odd. Its an Asus rt-ac88u and it has always behaved a little oddly, never get chance to do any testing without taking the house offline thats my big problem.

You shouldn't, 2.4 has far better signal penetration and transmits further than 5ghz in 99% of cases. The remaining 1% is strictly Marvel conditions. I can pick up my 2.4 router signal at the end of the street, the same router on 5.8ghz barely gets picked up outside my front door. My Rc transmitters easily hit 300metre range, in open ground 1000+. To get the same range with 5ghz I need highly tuned antennas and 10x the power and that's with highly specialized equipment. I would have someone look at your router\modem just in case.

Damn, Now broadband routers are bad I hear. I am moving from Virgin to Now Broadband, so I know how bad it wi be lol So, do you use another mesh system too? Is there one you would recommend for good, strong signals in all house?

tan159

I unofficially use a different router with now broadband. Only problem is they think because they can't talk to their own router they think it's a problem and hence throttle back the broadband speed. I suspect other isp do this as well.

Jetaylor

More antennae than the £60 Costco one so not bad really. Can't speak to its real world use though as we all know can be 50/50 on its actual effect and about 90/10 on whether the user has set it up right and configured it.

Aliz121

Many thanks for the info mate :)

On checking some EU prices, this is still a bit dear, £70 normal Czech market shop price. Brexit eh?

Considering TIA decided not to recognize it, I'd say you wasted your money. It offers nothing over Cat5e for gigabit networks and Cat6A will suffice if you are going to connect @ 10G, otherwise it's just a waste of copper. I don't think the best advice is "Pay for the extra", especially if you won't see any gains...

aLV426

Technically wired connections are less secure as the data is not encrypted, therefore if you can splice into a cable you can syphon the data. Granted with WiFi the signal is omnipresent and can be intercepted, but it needs decrypted

aLV426

Dude - what are you smoking? Cat5e is perfectly fine for gigabit networks, Cat6a is not the minimum and overkill for most home installs unless you are going 10G...

Tom1011110

Yeah, sounds right. I put 24 ports in my 3 bed and used about 500m / 550m

rprp

You'll be surprised. We had our house rewired. 2 bedroom house and went through 300m of network cable.

thanks, sorry, I meant to say Intel :)

Intel have removed the licensing as TB is their tech.

This is a docking station so DP is a video output. Connect a laptop to this with one cable and it gives you power, video out etc.

Whys this thing have a display port?
