  1.  Improved connection speed to PS3 from 2.5Mbs to 4.5Mbs


    Having suffered at the varying speeds offered by a wireless connection to my playstation 3 I decided to explore alternatives. I first ran a number of download speed tests through the "internet connection test" on the PS3; wireless connection gave average speeds of 2.5Mbs (over 10 tests) and a wired connection (LAN cable straight from router into PS3) gave average speeds of 4.5Mbs (also over 10 tests). Unfortunately for me my router is upstairs and the PS3 downstairs and i really didn't fancy trying to run a 10m LAN cable down the stairs and around door frames etc... It was in my quest to gain LAN cable speeds i found this product. Bought last Thursday (13th Oct) and delivered yesterday (18th Oct) i was up and running within 2 minutes of opening the box. Following several download speed tests i was delighted to discover this little wonder of technology offered me exactly the same speed as a wired connection and I am now enjoying the spoils of a consistent download speed of 4.5Mbs (a further 10 tests). Incidentally the upload speed also improved over the wireless connection - particularly useful for those who play online.

    Other point to note is that i have used mains socket (recommended) for both homeplugs.
