So here's the problem, you have wireless or wired internet around the house but from your main comptuer or gaming console you get a slow connection or have a ugly cable trailing all over the place. Solution...Powerline adaptor!! ~~What is it?~~ Basically the concept is your house or flat etc runs off a ring main. The adaptors work by carrying the signal around the mains anywhere in the house and you simply plug an adaptor in a mains socket in the room you want a connection in. Also acording to Netgear (havn't tested this out) it can some how jump ring mains?? As long as the connection is going to be in the same household the signal can jump from one ...

I always had problems getting my broadband connection to work from anything other than the engineer's port on my BT master socket, so ripped out all the spurious DIY phone cabling in the house and went wireless ... this was OK in some rooms but not in my office where the wireless connection on my desktop was intermittent ... after contemplating putting in a local ethernet network, I read about these Powerline adaptors and thought I'd give them a go.

Moving our router proved ineffective to solving the problem and we were considering purchasing a more powerful router, or even a second router, when we came across these Netgear homeplugs. These ingenious devices go back to the dark ages of using wires to connect but in a very unique way that gives the reliability of wired connections without the... well... wires. They come in a pack of two ... Read the complete review

This is a fantastic product, it basically allows you to convert any power socket in your house in to a 200mb/s network connection, without any extra wiring. I live in a large block of flats and most of flats have a wireless router, which has been interfering with my wireless access, after changing the setting on the router like the wireless channel and others with no success, I decided to invest in a set of these of these, and have not regretted it. The network speeds are more than i could have ever has with my wireless connection and it has not dropped out even once since I installed it, and is plenty for streaming files from my PC to my XBOX.
