power line lan kits

A quick heads up, interdiscount have a deal on the 3 adapter starter kits at the moment, 129chf, which is cheaper then the 2 adapter starter kits

the 3 kit will allow you to plug 2 devices into the net via your mains sockets, so no wireless or wires around the place, supposed to be faster then wireless too (we'll see lol)

Thanks for the heads up. I am looking to buy some of these.
Do you know if these are 85 or 200 or 500 Mbps ?

Re: power line lan kits

just looked in the box, they even come with network cables so I won't have to 'borrow' any from work lol

reading up it seems they also work if plugged into multiplugs even though the manual says you shouldn't, happy days.

Awesome. Stopping by interdiscount this evening.
Do you know already how much b/w is available over the powerline ?
I've read reviews where it says there is quite a bit of loss for the 200 version.

don't know yet, reviews I have read recon you'll get 65mb but all depends on the wiring in your house, I want it to stream video so this is more then enough, wireless just doesn't cut it.

Re: power line lan kits

Indeed it does - I use the Develo 100 ones. If anybody is considering getting rid of older ones, please let me know.

I am a VERY happy customer of Devolo.

I have 20mbs coming into the house. I am up two floors (using the 200 version) and here are the results. House wiring is from mid 1990's.

Re: power line lan kits

Have a look at Toppreisse. There is a fair bit of competition by the on line stores.

Will they work if different rooms are on different phases?

If you plug into a wall plug socket that is running through a sub board ie a kitchen then you dont get the signal, the wallsocket has to be on the same fuseboard as the emitting one -as far as this non techie understands it anyway.

Re: power line lan kits

I have used the 75mbps and the 200mbps and they all suck. It works good one day and the next not so well. Used it also to stream iptv over and it always freezes up into pixels so I would just recommend putting cat-5 or 6e in your place and doing it the right way
