Is this powerline kit right for me?
The BT 084285 powerline kit contains everything that you will need in the box. This powerline kit is simple to use, its plug and play feature means that you can quickly plug in the powerline adapters, connecting one to your router and the other to your networked device and setup is complete. This powerline kit gives you a transfer speed of up to 600Mbps between the two plugs and the single network plugs will allow you to connect your networked device directly to your router to give you internet access. This will allow you to connect any of your networked product, such as your laptop, desktop pc, games console, smart TV, networked hard drive or even your smart fridge to your internet connection.

How could I use this powerline kit?
The kit is plug and play to make setup quick and simple and also has pass-through technology built-in – allowing you to plug a device into the rear of the powerline plug to be powered from the mains socket being used. The powerline kit is designed for one plug to connect directly to your network router while the other can be connected to a networked device. It allows that device to connect directly to the internet without using long network cables. This powerline kit works seamlessly with all other BT broadband extender products to allow you to create the perfect networking solution for you.

How does powerline work?
Powerline technology transfers data using the electrical wiring of the household. This allows for a single powerline plug to be connected directly to a router and plugged into a mains socket. This plug will then communicate to all of the other plugs that are connected to the same electricity supply. This kit comes with a single powerline plug that connects to a router and another plug that will connect to your networked device and allow it to communicate to your router over the mains. The powerline adapters will communicate with each other when connected directly to mains sockets that are on the same fuse board. Additional receivers, including receivers that give a wireless signal, are sold separately and can connect additional devices to your router. For best results, use any powerline receiver capable of sending up to 600Mbps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So simple to use I bought this to go with my box as the distance between my tv and router is quite a distance. It works really well so no trailing wires. However i made a mistake by not knowing that it does not support 4k very well on the BT box as the picture kept breaking up. So i have had to hard wire between router and box and now works fine. This was my fault and not the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy extending Bought this a couple of weeks ago. Really easy to install and setup perfectly within minutes. Only thing not giving it five stars is that it doesn't work on extensions. Comes with two cables which is good too so your all set.

I have Virgin Media 100MB broadband, will these plugs boost my signal strength from the router downstairs where it is very powerful and super fast to upstairs into the bedrooms? Also, will I need to install the Ethernet cable into the router for the boost

Asked by: Matthew
These do not boost a signal they extend a signal via the electric cables in the property. This should be fine for that . Ethernet cables will always give a better connection speed.
