Powerline Adapters with built in intelligence are the perfect choice if you want to avoid running any additional cabling through your home. Powerline Adapters are devices that use the electricity power lines in your home to send your broadband signal between your YouView box and router.
They are really useful if there's a big distance between your YouView box and your router, or if you don't want additional cabling running from your YouView box to your router. What’s more, power lines are a much more effective way of transmitting your broadband signal than extension wiring, ensuring your connection remains strong, no matter the distance.
You’ll get two in a pack – simply connect one to your YouView Box, the other to your router, plug them into the mains and your devices are connected. Just ensure you plug them into the same circuit within the home. For more information on the Powerline adapter kit.
We also offer Wi-Fi Powerline Adapters, these provide a convenient way to extend your wireless network around your home without the need for long cabling, by using your existing electrical wiring. They also offer an Ethernet port in case you also want a wired connection for any of your devices (i.e. TV set-top-box or games console etc).
You’ll get two in a pack – Plug one powerline adapter into a plug socket near your router, then the other one in a plug socket in another room of your house to extend your connection. For more information on the Wi-Fi powerline adapter kit.
Like above they are really useful if there's a big distance between your YouView box and your router, or if you don't want additional cabling running from your YouView box to your router. What’s more, these can be also used to extend your wireless Network, great if you have been limited previously to where you can get wireless in your home.
To ensure your TV experience is as good as possible we have made sure our Powerline Adapters are fully compatible with our TV service. Using non TalkTalk Powerline Adapters may cause problems with you not being able to watch certain programmes On Demand or from our TalkTalk Player.
Yes, Powerline Adapters can also come in useful for other devices, like desktop computers, laptops and games consoles. If you have a big house with thick walls and you have trouble picking up wireless in certain parts of the house, or you simply can’t find an Ethernet cable that’s long enough, a Powerline Adapter could be a perfect way of increasing the range of your router.
