Is this powerline kit right for me?
The BT 084284 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. The powerline kit will give you a transfer speed of up to 600Mbps between the two plugs and the single network port will allow you to connect your device directly to your router to give you internet access. This will allow you to connect any of your networked products, 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 Easy and effective Soon had the extenders plugged in - after moving some furniture around - and worked straight away. No complications and they do exactly what it says in the leaflet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generally works well Bought this for my cctv and it works well most of the time. Has dropped signal completely 2 times in the last 3 weeks but might be down to Internet issues. Switch off and on again and up and running straight away. Easy to set up and am mostly happy with the signal strength around my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BT TV Box now connected! Today I purchased these extenders plus new Cat 6 cable. My previous cheap 7day extenders purchase eventually failed. All three lights lit up on the units, connected new cable and success! Re-tuned the BT box and now receive all BT Sport channels plus all the other internet delivered programmes. Phew!
