Value 500AV HomePlug Adapter with mains passthrough
The PL-HL117EP HomePlug AV 500Mbps can transform your home power lines into a networking infrastructure. HomePlug is a fast and simple way to connect to the Internet with easy connection between your computers, games consoles, laptops, smart phones anywhere in your home where you have a mains socket.
The mains passthrough socket is a useful addition to this plug. The socket is filtered which makes it ideal for plugging in other power supplies which may cause noise on your mains. Often lots of power supplies in one mains extension causes noisy mains which can interfere with HomePlugs, using the filtered socket on the mains passthrough adapter can help alleviate this problem in your home.
If you are a short of sockets this adapter is useful, plug the mains passthrough device in the wall and plug your mains extension into the mains passthrough socket.
You need at least two HomePlugs to create the connection. Traditionally, one plug is connected to your Internet router, the 2nd plug is placed in the remote area, such as your lounge, study or kitchen. The Plug connected to the router, takes the Internet signal and transfers it along your mains wiring, the 2nd plug takes the signal and distributes it via the Ethernet port directly to your device.
Powered by the Qualcomm Atheros Value AR7420 chipset this 500AV adapter is compliant with IEEE1901 and Homeplug AV, allowing hassle free compatibility with existing Homeplug AV devices and other suppliers of HomePlug AV devices.
Enhanced Quality of Service (QOS) provides the guaranteed bandwidth required for multimedia including TV over IP (IPTV), higher data rate broadband sharing, Online- Gaming, VoIP Calls, extending Wireless coverage, Audio-Video transmission across the network as well as Network camera connectivity.
The 500AV adapters all have a configuration push button for a convenient way of creating a secure HomePlug network without the need to use software. Security support is by 128-bit AES Hardware encryption, ensuring the network is secure.
Remember, you will need at least two HomePlug devices to form a HomePlug connection. More HomePlug AV devices can be added to further share your network.
