Cured my Wireless Headache!
on 3 January 2013
I love the idea of wireless, I know it's necessary for phones, tablets, etc. but I still can't bring myself to accept it as a replacement for proper wired networking, it's too unreliable and not fast enough.
I recently moved house and had to put my modem, router and network storage upstairs, while my TV with media centre PC is downstairs - unfortunately as it's rented I can't run proper cable and the wireless wasn't good enough to stream HD video reliably.. enter the Homeplugs!
These are a great price, look nice, compact and fast - what's not to like? 200MBPS is plenty for all my needs but there's obviously the choice of faster if you need it. They're really easy to set up, basically just plug in and away you go, but there's also simple buttons to set the encryption so next door can't plug in the same product and see your network, good peace of mind.
I use one direct into a wall socket and the other in a 6-way extension which also powers the modem, router, network drive and printer, this hasn't caused any problems at all, the connection is rock solid never had a single issue with them.
I remember a friend buying something similar to this around 10 years ago and being impressed with the idea, now I'm impressed how well it's kept up with the speed of modern networks and at a really affordable price.
If you're having any issues with wireless, get yourself a pair of these and never look back!
