85Mbps Powerline Ethernet x2
Do these plugs come with 56-Bit DES Encryption for network privacy and security like other branded homeplugs ?
And do they come with Ethernet cables ?
yep and yep - I've updated the website to include this vital information too...
Awsome thanks for doing that Amie
I've never done powerline networking so i need a router , I'm with Virgin Media cable is the Netgear RP614UK Cable Router any good or would you suggest something else ?
Get the netgear - I got a D-Link and have regretted it ever since...
ive got generic 14mbps to pipe the net from a modem router to my main switch. works like a dream and saves an age in cabling. If its anything other than piping internet round the 85mbps will be a god send.

Is the internet made of water?
yes it is, and whenever i hack into any computer hardware or vending machine, i end up having to replumb it :? (bioshock reference)

If a joke needs explaining, it's not funny.
Do the HomePlugs come with Vista drivers ?
shouldnt need drivers as they work as if it's connected via cable anyway.
eg rj45 to modem/router. just saves a long cable between floors and rooms.
Im intrested in these.
Is that 85mbps constant or depending on a number of factors?
Ive found some that do 200Mbps:mrgreen:
Constant, same as if you have a cable going between router and pc. then it show as 100mb these are the same thing just shows as the connection is 85mb.
The 85mbps is in ideal circumstances. It's affected by things such as anything on the mains rings which sucks a whole load of power (heaters, hairdryers, microwaves, ovens). Also things like multi-socket adapters will lower the line speed. I have two and each are plugged into a multi-socket adapter and I get around 60-75 so still pretty good. Overall I think they're great but if had get time I'd still nail some CAT5 to the wall.
