Is this powerline kit right for me?
This kit gives you a transfer speed of up to 500Mbps between the two plugs and contains everything that you will need in the box. The three built-in network ports allow you to connect multiple devices to your powerline plug at the same time, allowing your different devices to access the internet at the same time. The kit communicates with your devices at the standard 10/100Mbps speed which means it is universally compatible with all of your devices. The built-in Wi-Fi allows you to connect any of your portable devices to the internet wherever your powerline is powered. The kit is plug and play to make set up quick and simple and also has pass-through technology built-in – allowing you to plug a device into the rear of the powerline plug and continue to take power from the mains.

How could I use this powerline kit?
The powerline kit is designed for one plug to connect directly to your network router while the other is connected to a networked device. Compatible network devices include laptops, PCs, gaming consoles, smart TVs, network hard drives, media players and CCTV kits. It allows that device to connect directly to the internet without using long network cables. The built-in wireless allows you to connect your portable devices, such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop, directly to the internet without using a cable.

How does powerline work?
Powerline technology transfers data using the electrical wiring of the household. A single powerline plug is connected directly to a router and plugged into a mains socket. This plug then communicates to all of the other plugs on 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 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 the best results, use any powerline receiver capable of sending up to 500Mbps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had this for a few months now. It fits in with all the other Devolo stuff seamlessly. The wireless network works well with all hardware including MACs and smartphones, unlike BT home hubs. Very easy to set up. Free cockpit software to you can control from a PC. Transfer speed is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Having installed one unit of this product (dLAN 500 Duo) in my sitting room downstairs where the router is, and one unit in the study upstairs where my pc is, I did a broadband speed test and noted that the download speed increased from 0.71Mb / second to 44.62Mb / second. HUGE difference - now I can work in my study !! Very pleased. I will say one thing - this product does NOT have a power socket at the back "pass through socket", and devolo recommend that you plug the product direclty into the wall socket not onto an extension lead / power strip, therefore if you do not have many power sockets spare at the wall and / or have a lot of extension sockets coming off your wall, this may create a shortage of power sockets for you to use for your other devices, in that case consider the product witht eh pass though sockets for an extra £20. Overall VERY PLEASED with this product and with help and advice at my Local Maplins - Nottingham.

Will this work with other power line adapters on the same network e.g. BT simpler adapters?

Asked by: Steve012
Yes you can mix and match Power-line adapters, but its advisable to use ones with the same connection speeds i.e say the devolo 500mbps with 500mbps TPlink ones etc.

i have this product already but would like to add another wireless extender and wondered what the correct product to purchase is. any advice is welcome

Asked by: IanS
We do not sell the extenders on their own i am sorry to say, the best bet would be to buy the kit again, you can use both as extra extenders.

I had intended to buy the range plus model but ended up with this one. My house has one fuse box but a separate circuit in the conservatory which has solid walls. Should I exchange this for a different model. I do have a dual band netgear router

Asked by: Jenny57
I'm afraid they must be on the same ring main to operate , we have no other models of powerline adapters that can work on more than one ring main unfortunately.
