Is this powerline kit right for me?
This kit gives you a wired transfer speed of up to 500Mbps between the three plugs and contains everything that you will need in the box to get you started. 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 non-wireless network plug is designed to connect to your router and give you two extra network sockets to connect other devices to, such as a smart television or a Blu-ray player. The remaining network plugs have two network sockets on each to allow you to connect multiple networking products directly, such as your laptop, desktop PC, games console, smart TV, networked hard drive or even your smart fridge, without requiring any additional networking equipment.

How does the built-in Wi-Fi work?
These plugs also output a Wi-Fi signal that is cloned from your router. This allowa portable devices to stay connected to your internet without having to connect to the different hotspots throughout your property.

How could I use this powerline kit?
The powerline kit is designed for one plug to connect directly to your network router while the others are connected to networked devices. Compatible network devices include laptops, PCs, gaming consoles, smart TVs, network hard drives, media players and CCTV kits. This kit allows the device to connect directly to the internet without use of 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Works I don't usually write reviews but this product is so good I felt compelled. Seems like a good price with the Ј20 discount when compared to comparable powerline adapter kits. The setup could not be easier. Plug one of the receivers into a socket near your router, press the wps button on the router and the cloan button on the powerline adapter and you are done. Then plug in the transmitter to a socket and connect the supplied ethernet cable between the router and transmitter. Plug the receiver into a socket anywhere in your house and your wifi equiped devices will seemlessly swap between the router or powerline adapter depending where you are in the house. Because of the cloaning feature you don't have to enter any other passwords.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product & Price I purchased a pack of these for a client who had just moved into a very old house. The house wiring had been renewed in recent years so I was very confident that the house wiring would be useable. The product worked great out of the box. Took a few mins to spot the wifi password on the back of each unit, but had I read the paperwork I might have known quicker. We did find the coverage wasn't quite what we wanted after the first pack was installed. So I purchased a second pack and as expected this work great with the ones already installed. You can't go wrong with this pack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very poor results I had high hopes after reading the other reviews but was very dissapointed by these, I was able to get a signal using them but it was so poor unless I was inches away from the extender. My origin router gives me -70dbm in my living room and I get a signal drop every now and then. I plugged this into the living room and cloned the WiFi which works fine and as described, with my wireless devices inches away from the extender I was able to get a signal strength of -30dbm however as soon as I was a couple of feet away I was back to -70.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use. Now have wifi throughout the house! Bought this yesterday. Then realised I only have a single plug socket with an extension lead for the router, landline etc. so I thought it wouldn't work. Anyway I gave it a go and plugged the adapter into the extension, paired both the extenders (easy) and it works with tested download speeds that match my router wifi speeds! Very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed :) amazing piece of kit, unpacked it, plugged it in and within 5 minutes we had ethernet throughout the house, a quick speed check had 28.5 Mbs and 9.5 Mbs which as we have 23 - 38 quoted and the electrics aren't the best is pretty darn good, also it frees up the wifi exclusively for my girlfriends phone so she's happy as well as my teenage boys being over the moon as CoD or whatever it's called now plays properly. :) we have SKY fibre unlimited broadband if that is of any use to anybody thinking of getting this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant and simple I bought the Maplin TP-Link 500Mbps Powerline Wi-Fi Triple Kit at Maplins, Kidderminster. This is what I did: Firstly, the “pairing” of the 3 units in the kit is achieved without any Ethernet connection. I did it by plugging the black unit and just one white unit into adjacent sockets in the room next to the router and the pressed the “pair “switches. The lights showed the pairing to be OK. I then plugged the second white unit into an adjacent socket and pressed the “pair” switch on the black unit and the second white unit and lights showed that pairing to be OK. Next, I connected the Ethernet cable into the black unit and confirmed all three units showed the Ethernet connection working. Because I wanted all units to work with the existing Wi-Fi settings, I pressed the “WPS” switch on the router and the “Wi-Fi clone button” on one white unit till it connected. I repeated the “WPS” action for the second white unit, I switched the both white units off, moved one into the kitchen and one upstairs to the back bedroom but didn’t switch them on. I then took the laptop, which has never worked with Wi-Fi in the kitchen (Wi-Fi black spot in my house) and switched the first White unit on. The laptop immediately connected to the Wi-Fi – 5 bars. I used the Ethernet cable supplied to connect to me “smart” TV and got access to the on-demand services without any “waiting”. I then took the laptop to back bedroom (also a Wi-Fi black spot) switched the second White unit on. The laptop immediately connected to the Wi-Fi – 5 bars. I didn’t have to use the “Management Utility” disk at all. My modern house has one consumer unit that splits into two sections. Each section is protected by a 60amp RCD switch. The downstairs ring-main is on Section One and the upstairs ring-main is on Section Two. It is commonly thought that Powerline devices will not work with RCD switches. However, the “RCD detector” part of an RCD switch does not interfere with actual 60amp switch contacts. Powerline devices therefore should work. They do in my house. I have to say however that the Black TP-Link unit is plugged into the downstairs socket that is the first socket on the ring main. Thus, the “Powerline Signal” will go straight back to Section One of the consumer unit. It will connect solidly (via the 60amp switch contacts) to the Consumer Unit bus-bars. It will also connect solidly with Section Two of the consumer unit via the second 60amp switch contacts and provide the “Powerline Signal” to the upstairs ring-main.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great once you can get it configured to work Works great now that it is setup and I have wifi plus ehternet connects in my office shed at the back of my 100ft garden. Confusing setup instructions and cloning the Wifi doesn't work with a Virgin Media Super Hub 2. Not sure if you need to press clone first or the WPS on hub. In the end I downloaded the manual (instructions on page 12 of manual for your extender model) from the TP-Link website, and followed the instructions there to do it all manually for each extender which was a bit of a pain. For those not familiar with computer networking it could be confusing but I was able to do it with the following steps: 1) Connect the Extender to a wall socket, and login to it manually (ip address so I needed to create a network on my laptop to connect to it using mask as 2) Once you're connected to the box, go to Wireless > Wireless Settings and change the SSID to be the name of your existing VirginSuperHub2 network, then click Save. 3) Go to Wireless > Wireless Security, and change the password under the section "WPA-PSK/WPA-PSK2" to be your existing network password, then click Save. 4) Finally go to System Tools > Reboot and click the reboot button. 5) Once all is rebooted you should be up and running and the extender will be using the same name and password as your existing network. 6) After the extender rebooted I then plugged the Powerline adapter to a LAN port on broadband router using an Ethernet cable and the mains socket 7) I then pressed the Pair button on the Powerline adapter and the Pair button on the WiFi extender 8) I then relocated the WiFi extender to another mains socket in the building (my office shed at the back of my 100ft garden) and everything works

Rated 1 out of 5 by from On Virgin don't buy Could not get this to clone to my Virgin box. So tried using the settings in the units. Could get wifi connected but only if you stand right next too the units. A friend who has BT has not had a problem. Sorry to say they will be returned to store.

Hi I have got two TP 200 mbps will they link up with the 500mbps

Asked by: carpbomb
You can use 200 and 500 units linked however the max data overhead will always throttle back to the lowest speed device, so whilst the 500s will pair they will operate as 200s

Can I use the triple plug to connect three devices and purchase a separate one to connect the router to the mains. If so which separate plug is appropriate. I need two WiFi extenders, one standard single connector, one triple and one for the router.
