Having re-located my (BT) hub to a different part of the house, I needed to extend the Wi-Fi range. The house has VERY thick stone walls, and I had previously tried BT's Dual Band Wi-Fi extender as well as other power line extenders, with very limited success. This product, however, works brilliantly. It took me about 2 minutes to set up and I get the full five bars on the side of the house furthest from the hub! I'm not sure yet whether I shall need to buy additional plugs for other parts of the house (which would start to be rather costly). So, although you could probably get away with cheaper solutions in houses with "normal" walls, if you live in a property with very thick stone walls, this works really well.

Style Name: Mini (2 Pack)Size: 500Mbps Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the BT Mini Wi-Fi 500 Home Hotspot Power Adapter Kit, a simply piece (or rather two piece) of technology to help you get the best Wi-Fi anywhere in your home and to increase the speed and reliablity of your network. Despite being branded as "BT" you can still use this device with any network service provider and with any wireless device and router. It's also easy to use being "plug and play" in the real sence that you simply plug it in to your socket and forget about it. Being the "mini" kit simply means that it is smaller and has a power saving mode, there is no difference in performance with "WiFi500" kit.

If your looking to increase the range of your wi-fi network in your home then this really is ideal. A lot of home have several spots where your siginal strength drops out either slightly or totally and this helps prevent this happening. Obviously the speed of your broadband is determined by what you have signed up for with your service provider (and rather what speed they deliver you down the line), so please don't expect this to massively increase your download and browsing speeds.

The only thing preventing this item from getting 5 stars is the fact that its too "wide" and can't blocks a second electrical socket, if only it was a bit narrower it would be ideal, as other than the width its a great item that does what it says on the box.

Length: 2:31 Mins
The BT Wifi 500 Home Hotspot Multi Kit is a clever little kit that extends the wi-fi coverage within your home. In a nutshell, the kit takes your wireless broadband signal and extends it out to two further areas of your house via the kit's wi-fi hotspot plug-ins.

Set-up is simplicity itself. The kit comes with a one sheet instruction manual, which guides you through the handful of stages you need to go through in order to get your additional wi-fi hotspots in place.

Once set-up, you can simply connect to the two additional hotpots by linking up to them with your device and inputting the unique wireless key (it's printed on a small plastic card that can be slipped-off the reverse of the hotpots at any time).

I'm no internet / computer wizard, however I managed to get the whole thing up and our iPad connected to one of the additional hotspots inside of 5 minutes from unpacking the box for the first time.

We've had the kit in place now for a good couple of weeks and I have to say that we're over the moon with their performance. This wireless signal that they extend outwards is strong and constant (even for the basic package we get from our cheapo ISP), without any noticeable fluctuation of signal. We can now stream films etc in all of the rooms in our house as well as within a good portion of our garden. Furthermore, the extenders don't seem to have weakened or diluted the signal at all; just pushed it out to two additional areas of our home.

So all in all, we'd say that the kit is a cracking piece of simple equipment that does a handy job perfectly.

Probably a one-off purchase for most people. Combines the ease of using Wi-Fi and 2 Ethernet ports for my downstairs area which had Wi-Fi access issues. For most modern smart TV or TV boxes, Ethernet is the best way to source your internet requirements. It is faster and more stable - so less disturbance in your TV viewing. Instructions on set-up is fairly easy. However, make sure you have correct length(s) of Ethernet cabling before you embark. I have experienced no problems in keeping this plugged in 24 hours/day. Wi-Fi for my mobile and tablet had no issues even when used in near-by rooms on the same floor. No regrets in this purchase.

'Works out of the box' is one of those euphemistic phrases that normally means having to decipher a user guide translated from an ancient eastern language whilst scratching your head wondering which bit goes where.

Not so with this product.

1. Plug one end of the supplied ethernet cable into the powerline adapter
2. Plug the other end into your router
3. Plug the adapter into a wall socket
4. Take the wi-fi extender to the room where you want wi-fi and plug it into a wall socket

That's it! It will show up in the list of wireless devices then you connect to it just like any other.

A couple of tips:
a. Make a note of the admin password and wireless key before step 4 (both are on the label attached to the extender)
b. If you are going to change the password, download and install the BT Device Configuration Tool which will make things easier (available from [...] )

I don't think they could have made the installation any easier if they tried.
