Is this powerline kit right for me?
The BT 084289 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. This powerline kit gives you a transfer speed of up to 600Mbps between the two plugs and the single network plugs will allow you to connect your networked device directly to your router to give you internet access. This will allow you to connect any of your networked product, such as your laptop, desktop pc, games console, smart TV, networked hard drive or even your smart fridge to your internet connection. The two network ports allow you to connect a range of devices directly into your powerline plug without swapping cables or using any additional network equipment such as switches.

How does the built-in Wi-Fi work?
The built-in wireless hotspot outputs a B, G and N signal which gives your wireless devices a wireless speed of up to 150Mbps, depending on signal strength and obstacles such as walls. This will allow you get an improved transfer speed over Wi-Fi to improve your surfing experience. The powerline hotspots have cloning technology which will mimic your routers name and password, allowing your wireless devices to automatically stay connected to your Wi-Fi whether it is through the router or through the hotspot. This kit will allow you to connect even more devices to your network as well as to extend your Wi-Fi throughout your home or office without expensive equipment.

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 can be connected to your networked device. The twin network port on this plug will allow you to connect two devices to your internet connection at the same time. Compatible 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 hotspot will allow you to extend your Wi-Fi through your home or office so that your portable equipment such as smartphone or tablet can stay connected to your internet connection for longer and will also reduce wireless dead spots throughout your property.

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 Oh the relief! We have tried an army of range extenders to no avail. When we renovated our Victorian house we installed insulation anywhere we could. External walls have 100mm solid foam throughout (on the inside) and the internal walls are covered with multifoil. The result is that we are living in a Faraday cage and signals struggle to get through. Teenage daughter has been incessantly on my case and whilst I was about to put ethernet around the whole place I thought I'd try this Hotspot 600. Hurrah! The agro from daughter appears to have gone away, well, for that particular complaint anyway - there's plenty more she complains about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy & simple to use. Bought these today, took less than 5 mins to set the whole thing up and they are superb. The ease of use, and the fact you can add more units at a later date really appealed to me as I have a large L shape bungalow which has always struggled with Wifi coverage. They were seriously easy to set up & use and have provided uninterrupted Wifi across my home, quite simply superb. 5 star all the way from me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I bought this to improve my home network and reduce dropped connections to my iPad. It made no difference. Still drop outs still poor network.

If I buy 2 kilts, can I still use both units without wifi built into them? The manual says they have a range of 300m, does this mean all 6 units need to be within 300m of my gateway?

hello. Would kit work to transmit BT tv from the BT router to the BT tv hub? I have a BT hub in one room and want to watch tv in another room. There are electrical sockets near to both the tv and router.

Asked by: simon57
I'm pretty sure the TV part of BT-TV comes in through a conventional aerial, so this unit would not help in that instance.

I already have the hotspot 500.  Happy to upgrade but can I still use the two 500 units into the new 600 hub - ie 4 units running in total.

Asked by: j46uar
This should pair fine with your existing AV 500 kit, although the speed would be capped at the lower transfer rate.

Can I buy more WiFi propagation units - in addition to the two provided in the kit ? Is there a version with a mains pass-through ?

Asked by: Technophobe
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
