      Some home plugs.

      Got a PS3 all sorted on PSN finally, and have the Netgear V2 Router.

      Don't mind what it costs as wireless is atrocious due to different ends of the house between both pieces of hardware, do people generally believe homeplugs are worth it, and if so could anyone recommend some quality home plugs that are compatible with both PS3 and the V2.

      You need to have a pair which supports 85 meg/sec as there are also 14 and 200 speeds which are too slow and too fast as I assume you have a 10/100 router.

      Stay away from netgear as their technical support is worse than dire, devolo seems to be a well recieved make and they have good support.

      A pair of them should cost around 40 and if you more devices you want to add in the same room you can add a network switch to the adaptor.

      Speeds can vary due to the quality and age of your internal wiring but I am happy with speeds I get on my network as I get 75-77 meg/sec data transfer, more than enough for my Slingbox.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      I second the vote for Devolo Welcome to devolo UK. They just work. Can't say more than that.
