Power line adapters

Does anyone know where I can buy single power line adapters. I currently have 2 tp link PA4010 devices but need a third. I cannot find anywhere that sells single units apart from used ones on eBay. Everywhere else sells just starter kit.

Re: Power line adapters

you can find almost anything on ebay but even a single powerline adapter might be a challenge!

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Would this be of any use?

Re: Power line adapters

Looks like I'm going to have to get 2.  Don't need the functionality of a wireless one really. Shame nobody does singles anymore, of the basic ones, except used on eBay. Thanks for the advice......

Re: Power line adapters

Why tne aversion to buying second hand from EBay? I imagine that there are many like me who have found that,satisfactory operation is dependant on the particular domestic wiring layout etc. and dumped them in favour of installing Ethernet cable.

@Baldrick1   I don't have a particular aversion to buying used tech from eBay, I've just been burned a couple of times, with stuff not working and the hassle of returning.  To be honest I am in your court, and prefer wired Ethernet to anything. My sky box us direct wired to the router via a gigabit switch. It's unfortunately just not feasible in my house to wire everything Ethernet.

Re: Power line adapters

I have several doing nothing in a dark cupboard.

I got fed-up continually crawling to reset the damn things.

Got majority stuff connected via Gigabit switch - including TV. 🙂

Re: Power line adapters

Based on my experience there should be lots of single ones lying about somewhere. I've had 3 'starter kits' to connect up to a hard-to-reach corner of my house and each one has failed (only 1 end of course) after some months of intermittent usability and continual resets. I think they're a load of kack!
