Is this powerline kit right for me?
The kit gives you a transfer speed of up to 500Mbps between the two powerline plugs and 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. The single network port lets you connect your device to your router for internet access.

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. 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.

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.

I have the Netgear Powerline 500 Essentials Edition and want to improve my wifi signal to my garden through the house wiring, is there a range booster I can use  that is compatible with my existing power line system

Asked by: Calan15
Adding this kit and placing the Wi-Fi Hotspot unit in close proximity to the garden would give extended Wi-Fi coverage in that area. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/netgear-av500-500mbps-powerline-with-wireless-n300-range-extender-built-in-n19nr
