      I'm looking for..

      Home Plugs

      Basically the story is I kinda treated myself over Xmas to the 360 Elite and don't particularly want wires trailing round the house, or the constant hassle that is wireless.

      So I'm basically looking for a pack of two home plugs that are compatible completely with all of the Xbox 360's features, and also Sky Broadband, so that I can experience online gaming to the absolute maximum.

      Any help would be fantastic, thank you.

      They are the better version than the link I gave:

      PowerLine Wall-Plugged HD Ethernet Starter Kit - HDXB101

      They wil do the job.

      PS - if you buy from play, then you may get done for import duty as they are above the limit.

      Brilliant, thanks, might as well buy some, shame about the price, but things like them aren't gonna come down in the High Street January Sales.

      Another thing, I'd like to know before the 360 arrives, how can I sort out my ping.

      I'd like to know what it is first is there any tests I can do to find out the average?

      Re: I'm looking for..

      Ping bbc.co.uk from your pc. To do this (in case you are unaware), Click Start, then Run. Type cmd and press enter, now type ping bbc.co.uk and press enter.
      After having my Max Delays reduced (which is all you can do to improve your ping with Sky), mine have dropped from an average of 42ms to 31ms.
      Hope this info helps you.

      Re: I'm looking for..

      OK, I'm pinging bbc.co.uk, with an average of 34ms.
      google.co.uk with an average of 44ms
      Jolt.co.uk - Online Gaming - Clan Server Rental with an average of 33ms
      and SkyUser - The Unofficial Help and Support Forum for everything Sky! with an average of 41ms.

      Are they good stats for me to be ready to game online to the maximum potential I could hope to achieve, or should I be on the phone to T3 and on about Max Delays ?


      Thanks for all your help everyone

      They look pretty good, give it a go and see how it is in practice.
