    Homeplugs and Interference

    This is a discussion on Homeplugs and Interference within the Technical discussion forums, part of the Broadband Technical Help category; I am sure that they are very good at reducing noise where it exists. If noise is not the problem ...

      I am sure that they are very good at reducing noise where it exists. If noise is not the problem then they will perform exactly the same as any other extension lead.

      I imagine it isn't much of a leap to say that if there are a bunch of devices on an extension lead, then at least some noise will leak on to the mains, especially if they have switched power supplies??

      True but even more noise will leak onto the mains if the PSUs are plugged directly into wall sockets.

      At the end of the day the money spent on cleaning up the mains supply could be better utilised installing a wired network.

      That's what I'm getting at. If most/all PSUs etc. went through a filtered extension or a 'piggy' homeplug with an inbuilt filter, then this would help to clean up the noise.

      I would like nothing better than to wire up the house, my wife on the other hand ...

      True but if, as appears to be the case, your problem is not being caused by noisy PSUs (unless router or computer) then filtered extension leads will not help.

      Mine were terrible unless I plugged them straight in to the wall. I tried through an extension socket but then didn't work very well.

      If you are short on sockets you can buy ones that act as a pass through adaptor

      Re: Homeplugs and Interference

      Thanks. I'm just weighing up whether 'piggys' would be better than a filtered extension lead. I'll definitely need one of the piggys though.

      Off on a slight tangent, does anyone know whether the AV500s keep there speed up over longer distances compared to the AV200s, or is it like compare ADSL and VDSL, i.e. the AV500s have a sharper drop in speed beofre converging with the performance of the AV200s?

      Reason I ask is that 2 homeplugs in the same room are connecting at 190Mbps+, the one over the other side of the house is connecting at <100Mbps. Just wondering, if they were all AV500s, would the furthest one connect at a higher rate?
