      Devolo homeplug adapter kit

      Hi All,

      after being ordered by the wife to get the PC out of the front room, i moved it to the back of the house.
      after about an hour of rubbish wireless connection (i live in a 1920 house and knew it would be crappy but had to try) i popped down to PC world and got the Devolo starter kit (2 plugs & 2 network cables).
      left the router by the master socket (fitted with adslnation face plate) put one plug next to router, other plug by computer at other end of the house, then using the suuplied cable conneted router to first plug and Pc the second plug and away we go
      ( it took a little longer than that, but only because previously i had to put in a new network card and when i plugged the devolo in the first time i put it in the defunct socket on the PC , only took me about half an hour to realise what i had done)

      been back online for a while now and all is great, i am getting the same d/l rate at the speed test sites and more importantly the wife is now happy !


      only draw back is the price (95), but still better than pulling me hair out with the wireless or trying to run cat cable through my house.

      Will let you know later in the week if there are any problems with errors

      I too have purchased a Devolo starter kit - 200mps one.

      I seriously wonder why I never purchased it before. Best 116 I've ever spent. Flawless streaming of HD movies from PC to TV.

      Yes they're excellent! I now have two starter kits for all "fixed" devices on the network. Only 2 of the 3 the laptops are now using wireless access.

      One thing to watch though, a wireless phone extender will not co-exist happily with the Devolo kit (when a device connected to the wireless phone extender makes a call, it knocks out the Devolo connection).

      Theres also the eConnect Home Plug.

      eConnect HomePlug 85Mbps Turbo

      I've got a pair of the 85mbps which are 43 a pair. More than adequate for most people and work very well.
