Due in or around the second week of November 2014
These plugs use the latest Qualcomm Atheros QCA7500 chipset.
The QCA7500 chipset uses an 2×2 MIMO Dual Intergrated analogue front end line driver with beamforming to extend coverage meaning that two transmitters are able to transmit on any two of three plug pairs: Line, neutral and ground at the same time.
They also repeat the signal of other plugs in the AV2 network to extend signal coverage and robustness.
With pass through mains plug you will not be losing a power socket with the Solwise PL-1200AV2-Piggy as with all our pass through mains homeplugs the mains plug on the unit is filtered to stop rogue frequencies from disrupting the plugs.
We shall run a test with these and the Tenda P1000 and add to our rough and ready real world speedtest in due course but first signs are pretty good, with a rough and ready test giving 270-ish mbps on actual thoughput across our system with the Tenda

These are our fastest homeplugs yet and fresh to the market, still waiting for confirmation if they are Actually Homeplug AV2 standard but certainly hinting at it, backwards compatible with 500mbps homeplug AV so a good way to slowly speed up an existing network one link at a time.
Would be great running from a NAS home server or streaming 3D and HD media
Currently in quite limited numbers as they are so new and £39.50 for a starter pack
The model is nice and compact (63×47×40mm) and of a very high finish.
10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports are fitted so not bottleneck here.

New product just in:
500mbps Wireless homeplug and 2 ethernet ports for £34.95
The unit will work with all 500mbps Homplug AV homeplugs as well as 200mbps homeplugs on firmware 3 and above.
We have re-configured these away from the factory default setting so they are ready to work straight away with an existing or new homeplug network installation off an existing router. This is by far the most common setup for homeplug networks.
These can however be setup to work as the router with DCHP running if you are not extending and existing routers connection but wish to instead run these direct off a wired network provider or wired modem link.
Want to extend your existing 500mbps or 200mbps homeplug network wirelessly into a wireless deadspot in your house?
This item is the perfect answer, the unit is both a 500mbps homeplug with 2 network ports and also a wireless network point, simple plug a standard 500mbps homeplug into a power socket near your router with an network cable between the homeplug and router and then plug this wireless homeplug in a location were the wireless signal does not reach from your router, scan for available networks and select this plugs default wireless network name “powerline” enter the default wpa password 1234567890 and your online again.
The two wired network ports can be used at the same time as the wireless so is ideal to place near your TV & media centre devices to allow say a wired connections to your sky+ HD box, freeview player or internet ready TV to enable on demand services as well as service wireless devices in the vicinity like tablets, laptops and mobile phones that cant reach your existing wireless router.
Your are able to change wireless network name and password if you prefer, we have just preconfigured these so they are ready to work straight away for you.
The plugs also have a router mode so you can plug a wired modem into the WAN port with DCHP server to control the network address of attached devices, this however is not the common setup option for homeplug users so we have set it up to be plug and play with existing or new homeplug installation with a connection to your own router.
We have created two purchase options, either a single unit to add to an existing 500mbps homeplug network or a starter pack with both units required to extend your wireless network from scratch i.e. the standard plug for the router connection as well as the wireless plug to use in the wireless deadspot. You can also add more stand alone units to the starter pack if required to create more wireless spots if you have a large or awkward shaped house for the existing wireless network.

Our latest deal on homeplug network plugs is pretty special.
This is only whilst stock last and these are going pretty quick.
A easy way to hook up your smart TV, Sky HD box to enable the on demand services & anytime+ and freesat boxes to enable iplayer.
All of these items needs cabling up to your broadband router so the content can be downloaded but running a ethernet cable from your router to your TV system can not always be accomplished easily, with homeplugs you simple connect one to your router via the supplied cable and plug it in nearby, plug a second homeplug next to the device that needs the internet, connect the cable and its online.
No messy cables, no software to install as they are ready to go.
Of course if you can run a network cable this will be the cheapest option, we have those too. A standard cat5e cable is ample for this duty.
If you need help deciding which ones to buy or any advice on Homeplugs, power line networking or network cables, give us a call or drop us an email, we are always glad to help, we still love getting regular mail also.
