No problems through consumer unit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Solwise 500AV HomePlug AV Ethernet Adapter with mains passthrough TWIN PACK
I was a bit dubious about mains borne Ethernet having read various things about poor performance through consumer units. We live in a large new-build with a lot of electrical circuits and 3 consumer units just for the house. The two ring mains the HomePlug network is on are at least in the same consumer unit but even then I was prepared for poor performance or no connectivity. Not a bit of it. I plugged the two units in switched them on and within seconds had green lights all round. True plug and play.
I have a fairly complex network structure with one HomePlug downstairs connected to the GigaE port on a BT Home Hub 3 which has 3 other devices connected and the other HomePlug upstairs connected to a TP-Link Gigabit 8-way switch also with 3 other devices connected. Web browsing from the desktop upstairs is much faster than on Wi-Fi and the TV downstairs accesses my Synology NAS Media Server upstairs beautifully - something it could never do via Wi-Fi as the BT Home Hub doesn't have a proper bridging mode. Now I can look to set up external internet access to my IP CCTV camera and NAS drive.
To summarise - great product. I've not tried other HomePlug products and why would I when these work so brilliantly?
