Technicolour router - wi-fi to garden office

I've been recommended to use a Devolo dLAN 500 Wi-Fi Adapter to enable me to get wi-fi to my home office.  Can anyone advise if they have tried this with the PlusNet Technicolour router and if it would work please?

It should work fine with the Technicolour router - it is a powerline adapter so just shoves the data through your wiring instead of wirelessly the recipient units then convert it to a wireless signal. All the Technicolor router has to do is hook up to the master adapter via a CAT5 cable so there should be no incompatibilities there.
Whether it will work between your house and garden office effectively is another matter - the only way would be to try it. It *should* work though.

Matina,
Welcome to the forums.
I use a Devolo dLAN 200 master - WiFI slave pair and they do work very well and unlike some powerline devices, I have not discerned any impact on the ADSL signal.
The only requirement is that the electric supply to the garden office is of good quality and connected to the same fuse box as the other end.
