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.

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.
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.
