      Solwise NET-PL-200AV11NRT Router connecting to Sky

      I'm contemplating buying the Solwise NET-PL-200AV11NRT router simply because it has a built in 200mbps Homeplug built in which will do nicely in a space (and power) restricted hall where my master telephone socket is.

      I then want to run 200mbps Homeplugs to my Xbox, Squeezebox and BluRay player (using 85mbps plugs to the Xbox at the moment).

      I'm fully aware of Skys t&c's regards connecting 3rd party routers but the Sky supplied Sagem I've currently got isn't the best performer from a wifi perspective so this might kill two birds with one stone (I still need wi-fi for laptops).

      Anybody come across one of these routers at all and can comment on them

      Ignore the tramblings of an imbocile - just realised this device hasn't got an inbuilt modem. Durrrrr what a plonker. I'd be no better off really regards space and power than plugin a 200mbps Homplug into the Sky supplied router.

      Apologies for being so bl**dy thick

      Check if the 200 and 85mbps homeplugs are compatible, some will exist together but will not communicate. You might have to upgrade them all.

      Cheers isitme. Aware of this. Was going to replace the two 85mbps and sell them on fleabay.
