Everything you need to ensure uninterrupted connection
The BT Broadband Extender Flex 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 kit will give you a transfer speed of up to 1000Mbps between the plugs. The two network ports will allow you to connect two networked devices directly to the powerline socket at the same time, allowing you to connect two devices, such as your laptop, desktop PC, games console, smart TV, networked hard drive or even your smart fridge directly to your internet connection at the same time without swapping cables. The powerline kit is plug and play to make setup quick and simple. The powerline plugs of this kit are designed to allow you to plug directly into a wall socket and to also plug a device into the back, meaning you do not lose a mains plug socket while using this kit.

One plug connect
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.

How powerline technology works
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 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, choose a powerline receiver capable of sending up to 1000Mbps.

It states :-  "This plug will then communicate to all of the other plugs connected to the same electricity supply."  So if I have 2 ring mains in my house, they will work regardless of what ring main the power comes from ?

Asked by: Chris R
Yes as long as its all the the same fuse box.

Can you advise if this Extender Flex 1000 kit can be used in conjunction with a BT Extender Flex 500 kit as we have 2 of these and now want to add further connections for BT Youview in another room

Asked by: Graham
If you mix different speeds of extender then they will all operate at the speed of the lowest unit in the kit ...so in your example whilst the 1000s will talk to the 500s ... they will all operate at 500.

Will it extend wifi signal to another room

Asked by: Antony
This kit would just extend a wired network connection, for similar speeds and the passthrough feature with WiFi capability you would be looking at a kit like this one; http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/tp-link-av1200-gigabit-pass-through-powerline-ac-wi-fi-kit-a52wf

I purchased the Extender Flex 1000 kit from Maplins on the understanding that it would extend the Flex 500 kit I already have but I just don't seem to be able to link them to the 500 devices.  Can you help please?
