Powerline adapters

Go to solution

Hello.

 

Just ordered a Youview box today, along with a separate TP Link mini router from PC World. However, looking at my order it seems as though there is a pair of Powerline Adapters included.

 

Can anyone tell me which make of adapters are being shipped with the Youview box at the moment?

 

Thanks.

 

Robin.

The are made by Simpler Networks and the model is the HP200PT64 as seen here.

That's good to hear that BT no longer use the HP200PT64BT2 ones:)

(note the BT2)

 

If they're just the HP200PT64's then there should be a disc sent with them, if they're the BT2's then BT have had them locked down:(

Just checked again. Mine are labelled HP200PT64BT. No disc was supplied. Not actually using them waiting for my infinity FTTP install tomorrow because when the engineer has left I will be moving the  furniture around. Hopefully they will work OK.

Nah, the BT ones don't have a disc, nor can you tweak them like you could with the previous comtrend ones:(

I realise that the adapter next to the router needs to be into a main socket, but can the second adapter be plugged into an extension lead?

It DOES work but tbh it's not worth it unles you ABSOLUTELY have to as the speed and error correction required will be a problem....if you are doing it may I suggest an investment in the best extension lead you can find...

Provided that the adaptor is not one that incorporates surge protection as this will block the signals passed through the adaptor.

I may be better off using the TP-LINK TL-WR702N mini router I have on order from PC World.
