awesome product

Bought this kit to replace a wireless n adaptor that gave me between 30 and 130 mbps. With this kit through the house wiring I'm now getting a full 1gbps connection to my home network constantly! Just plug in and they connect automatically then use the push button to link them and you're done.

Simple, well designed, fast

So easy to setup - just plug in and they connect. I got a solid & fast connection, despite having old house wiring. They should be suitable enough as a replacement for a wobbly/slow wifi connection if you're moving from ADSL to Fibre, assuming your wiring setup can handle it. I have gone from 30Mbps over wifi to 67Mbps using these.

As the description says, ignore the image shown, as these come with standard UK sockets/pins.

You will need space below your wall socket, as the ethernet cable is attached into the bottom. Google image search this model and you should see what I mean.

You will need a gap of about 9-10 cms, from the bottom pins of your wall socket to the floor, for these to sit comfortably and to allow you to connect the ethernet cable into the bottom. So if you have a tight skirting board then you might need to use an extension cable.
