I'm unable to do this as i plan on using homeplugs. Homeplugs are for computers, they send data across your houses electrical lines so that it is essentially wireless. These get interference when used in conjunction with a surge protector, as i am using.

Unless you are know what you are doing leave it alone and get an electrician in to do it.;)

A little knowledge can be DANGEROUS.:eek:

You can get sockets that double up (or more) called converters that you change your existing socket for. No chasing to do.

1G to 2G Sw Skt Conversion Kit - Screwfix.com, Where the Trade Buys

However, you should be competent in doing this type of work. If not call in a sparky.
Which one of these two should i get?

Pay your money, take your pick. Go to screw fix and have a look at them. If you have any doubt about fitting this contact a electrician.

Hi mat,
i am in the same situation you are in. Did the socket adapter hinder the speed of the powerline?
