  Excellent with 1 very slight problem

| | See all Tosher's reviews (1)

The plugs do everything they say. Plugged them in and they worked. However, one slight niggle was that the leads that are provided with the plugs are not long enough. This was not a great problem as I never throw anything away and was able to find suitable leads in my man shed

  Great product, works well.

Just got these today, arrived quickly with usual play service. They did just work out or the box, and I'm getting high quality on demand TV with no buffering at all (through BT Infinity). Really happy with this product.
Something to be aware of that isn't clear in the manual though - when you press the button to pair, hold for only the 3 to 8 seconds it says (I counted to 5). When you let go, the light will THEN flash. DON'T hold until the lights flash (about 10 seconds) as this doesn't allow the units to pair and it won't work.

  One of my best buys!

My internet connection is not great as im upstairs and at the opposite end of the house to were my routa is. When i heard about this product i researched it a little and i have to say what a difference! I can now play my PS3 on Call of Duty and Battlefield without any laggy problems and can finally have some good laughs with my mates, without being frustrated at the lagg. If your in a similar situation to what i was, i would strongly recommend buying these, it took 30seconds to setup and impacted my play straight away!

  Improved connection speed to PS3 from 2.5Mbs to 4.5Mbs

| | See all dirtybiscuit's reviews (1)

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.

I bought these after a lot of searching, they are so easy, simply plug in, they have solved my problem, my son can now have his xbox and computer upstairs, with fast broadband and no lagging, wish i found them sooner.

  So simple, yet amazing!

I had an N spec router downstairs which gave me a signal throughout the house, and out into the garden, but my problem was that the router couldn't move plus neither could my main PC upstairs - so unfortunately I was stuck with a weaker signal in the room I needed it most!
Then I saw these little beauties!
It really is as easy as it sounds, connect the modem to one plug, then pop into the mains. At the computer, connect to the other plug and then into the mains. Press the 'sync' button on one plug, do the same on the other, and within a minute the plugs have synced and you have a rapid connection (as fast as your incoming broadband is!).
I decided to go from the tp plug - router - pc just to give me a wee bit of extra security (with the router firewall) and also keep my wireless signal available if needed. A direct ethernet connection from the router to the pc of course keeps the speed as high as possible.
As far as my computer goes, and home entertainment etc, this is by far the best use of 35 quid !!
Now I know I can add more of these wherever I want them about the house and it will all just 'work'.

  Stress free connection

After trying for some time to connect a range extender, without success, I spotted this product and decided to try it.
It arrived today and I plugged one into my router and the other into my desktop computer that had no signal at all. It took about a minute to set up the connection automatically and the speed and connection on my desktop is amazing.
This even works brilliantly with extension leads. I have the main plugged into one next to my modem and the one that powers my desktop is even plugged into a surge protected one and works without problem. I'm now going to buy another for my daughter's room.
Very impressed. Great product and stress free connection.

  Excellent product. Easy to use.

| | See all joe9768's reviews (1)

I bought the kit to connect my new Panasonic TV to my router to be able to use the Viera Connect facilities and also to implement the Media Server function. In less than 5 minutes from opening the box the device was in use. To set the passwords was a little bit more tricky but the TP-Link web site has the necessary easy to follow guide.

My two devices are on different floors but on the same ring. Each device is plugged into an extension lead without apparent signal loss.

Works a treat. Fast enough to stream HD BBC iPlayer without problems.

I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to install a network connection without the hassle of installing new cables and for whom a wireless solution is not viable.
