I bought a couple of these plus an ordinary push button unit just over a month ago. They have worked very well; being easy to set up and handling all network traffic easily but one of the units has just failed. Something has 'blown' inside and I do not feel the unit has been under any stress or misuse to cause this. I have just got on to Solwise via Amazon and am hoping for a replacement with no quibble. I resolve to post something later to relate my experience.
Well Solwise were very good and sent a replacement by return. That unit is up and working straightaway. I would put the star-rating up from 3 to 4 if I could change it from my original rating but I cannot get it to change.
I bought this adapter together with a HomePlug AV Simple Connect plug (NET-PL-200AV-PUSH). As I said in my review of the plug, I followed the super-simple three step setup guide, plugged it all in with the supplied network leads and waited. But nothing worked - one of the three LEDs on the back was not lit up, indicating the two HomePlug AV units could not `see' each other.
I spent about half an hour messing around, installed the HomePlug AV Utility off the CD but it didn't help. Then I decided to reboot the computer. Bingo! Both units were happily sending data to each other, with the WiFi Router on the end connected to the internet. Perfik.
These units were bought to replace the WiFi `B' connection and are much faster and more reliable. The utility tells me I'm getting between 135mbps and 180mbps, which sounds good to me! I was especially pleased because I have to use one HomePlug AV unit upstairs, through a four-gang extension socket. This is not the best situation but it's still much better than the WiFi connection.
Somehow the pictures don't convey the size. The adapter is about 80mm x 120mm which looks like a bit of a brick on the wall, but they're both nicely designed (not too wide so both sockets in a double outlet are accessible) and are very light. Apart from the size, the only other minor niggle is the cable length (1.8m) which is too short (especially given that these cost over fifty quid each). All-in-all, though, I'm happy - even impressed: simple, effective and thoughtfully designed products - if just a little pricey.
Up and running in a few minutes, it really is plug and play. Don't bother with the supplied software it isn't really needed unless you are heavily into diagnostics.
I bought this together with a couple of triple input adaptors to allow me to connect TV, Blu-Ray player, Freesat box and Wii to the net. I then used this single adaptor to connect to my router. Worked like a dream.
I chose these units after reading various reviews, I had originally thought I would go with Devolo units, but other sources indicated that these units were not only cheaper, but faster too.
i) these units are best plugged directly into the wall socket and not an extension lead (although they work well, albeit slower speed) and that way I did not loose the power outlet
ii) these power units also have power filtering/surge protection built in.
The slight downside of these is that they are slighlty bigger but no more so than something like an automatic timer switch so for me it's a non issue. In fact in both cases I've used these the plugs, they are out of sight and ironacly it was this that caused the longest time to set them up --- swearing and having to move furniture (computer desk, etc..) in order to plug them in.
Set-up was simplicity itself -- plugged the first one in, conncected the network cable to the plug end and then straight into the router.
Plugged the second in (after more fun moving desks), plugged the network cable into the plug/PC and that was it. Turned the computer on and that was it connected --- no loading software, no having to press buttons -- simply plug in and connect cables.
Total time for 2 plugs from the box to being connected, was less than 8mins and I think 5mins where just moving desks around -- this is not to say these should be installed in a rush but just my experience and how easy this was.
Also and I know it's on the blurb the connection is 128bit encrypted -- I don't really know how to test this but it's another important feature on security.Read more ›
I used them to extend my 100MB ethernet connection to my PS3 which is perfect for media streaming to it from my desktop PC.
