BT Broadband Extender Flex 600 Kit | Review

BT Skills
Basic Script: Hey YouTube, today we’re looking at BT’s Broadband Extender Flex 600 kit. The power line kit is a simple way of connecting two Ethernet devices together via your homes internal power cables. For example if your wireless router is upstairs and you wish to connect a device that requires a cabled connection but is a long way away from the hub, you would need to run a long Ethernet cable through your house which could be impractical and untidy. Instead you could use a powerline kit to connect them using your internal power cables. Setting them up couldn’t be easier; simply plug one of the devices into a socket near your hub. Then use the provided CAT5 cable to connect the home plug to your router – we are using the BT Home Hub 4 and are going to connect it to port 1. Now plug in the other home plug, near to the device that you would like to connect – we are using the BT YouView + Box. Again, use the provided CAT5 cable to connect the two devices. And that’s all there is to it, the devices can now communicate as if they were connected using a single Ethernet cable. As you can see there are three status lights on the front of the device, indicating power, connection and data transfer. When your device is not on, the powerline kit will go into a standby mode but will always be ready to turn back on again when you are using your device.
If you are having trouble pairing your home plugs, there is a link button on top of the device which will allow the devices to discover each other. This is pass through kit meaning that you won’t lose a socket when using these devices, you can still use the plug as normal to connect your router or any other device.
The speed will depend on a number of factors, especially the distance of your internal wiring. This particular kit is capable of up to 600Mbps however a Gigabit capable kit is available.
Having used these home plugs for several months, I can certainly say they are reliable. Performance has been great so far and is certainly adequate for streaming HD video content via the BT YouView+ box. I could also see these devices being attractive to gamers for use with consoles or even for use with devices that have Wi-Fi built in but need a faster or more reliable connection.
Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in the next video.
