powerline networking adaptors connecting across different electricity rings

  henry000 11:13 10 Nov 2013

I have read on the internet that using powerline networking adaptors to deliver a wired internet connection from one separate electricity ring to another at home "may" still work, but at a slower connection speed. Is this correct? How can I know if this is going to work in my home- is there a particular brand I should buy and if it does work how slow will it be? Will it be fast enough to watch videos on the internet?

This article should give you all the advice you need.

click here have been using HomePlugs for about two years. One is contacted to my modem/router upstairs and I have my smart TV plugged into one downstairs. My BB speed is about 11 mbps at the router upstairs but I haven't measured the speed downstairs. However my TV will stream HD programs from iPlayer without any buffering.

I may be mistaken but, as far as I know, the signal is available to every ring within the home and not just limited to the Ring it is on
