Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS After having problems with Maplins TP-Link kit not connecting to my Virgin hub I exchanged it for this set. Installation was easy and before long I was getting wifi down the other end of the garden highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Genuinely shocked at how well these work. My TV in my bedroom needed an Etherley connection for online content and I thought I'd try these other than try and run a huge extension cable. I was a little dubious but very pleasantly surprised when they worked exactly as described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective I bought this yesterday from Lakeside, I had no idea what to get to provide a wifi connection to my summer house at the bottom of my garden. The chap I spoke to was execelent and took me straight to TP, the one I purchased was on offer at £35, in fact I bought two as this worked out cheaper than buying a further single unit at £39, as I also wanted to improve the signal on the other side of my house. I was sceptical on if these would work as I have two electric boards one for the house and one for the summer house, i had read that plug sockets connected to different boards would still work as long as they work off the same feed. So £70 spent I headed home to see if these would do the job. Within 5 mins of opening the box I had a fully working strong internet wifi network in my summer house and a great signal in the other side of the house which had previously been poor. So simple to set up and so quick, no issues at all. Brilliant product and great customer service to boot from the guy in Maplins Lakeside.

Bought the TP link AV500 wifi kit, would like to add a 2nd unit to extend to another zone in the house............can not seem to be able to find a unit on to purchase on its own, have found kits that have 2-3 extra units but its a new total purchase

Asked by: smned
The following adapter should link in with your existing system, it will however, only operate at the 500mbps maximum offered by your existing kit. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/tp-link-av600-wi-fi-powerline-range-extender-a88nn

We are considering this but live in a old house / old wiring - Is there any risks around data transfers heating up the electrical cables?

Asked by: Knoxy
None at all, they only send a data signal. They only consume the current they need to operate and its a very low wattage.

In this kit, is the pass-through mains socket on the transmit unit (connected to the router) or on the receiver (re-radiating the wi-fi or connected to the laptop etc)?

Asked by: bruce
Yes - but which unit has the mains pass-through? Is it the transmit unit at the router or the distant receiver/WiFi radiator?

I bought this kit to extend my wifi to the kitchen. Now i can not get a good signal on my iPad in the from room. I thought getting his would extend it and i wouldn't lose signal where i originally had it. Any ideas?
