    I have three homeplugs in my network, 2 Devolo 200mbps units and one
    7dayshop 200mbps unit.

    All work fine.

    Bought 2 more 7dayshop 200mbps units, can I get them to connect into the
    network, can I hell.

    What's more, taking out the Devolo units and trying to use just the
    three 7dayshop units I still can't get them to connect.

    Grrr !!!!

    Any tips appreciated.

    Same network ID, encryption setting/password on each?

    Are the new 7dayshop units the same make/model as the older one that
    works?

    Do the two new units work on their own, without any of the old units
    (not even the old 7dayshop one) installed?

    Can you get /one/ of the new units to talk to /one/ of the old units,
    with nothing else installed? Try that with each of them in turn.

    I suspect that either the new units are an incompatible make/model that
    will never work with the old ones, even though they may be sold as the
    same brand as the old 7dayshop unit, or that one (or both) of the new
    units is faulty and is messing things up.

    Cheers,
    Daniel.

    Maybe worth checking for firmware updates for the old ones.

    The Develo units have NO RESET button so any alterations have to be via
    software and I made no alterations at that point.

    The 7dayshop units have a reset button which, however I followed the
    instructions didn't work.

    Following day reset them again and it all worked !!!!!!

    Still no idea why they didn't work on day one.

    Yes, that's not a bad idea but as mentioned in a previous reply post all
    appears to now be working and I have no real idea why they didn't do so
    in the first place :)
