PowerLine adapters are an excellent alternative when a wireless network just won’t do the job. Living in an older home, I can attest to wireless routers not traveling to every corner of the house. PowerLine adapters allow users to leverage electrical circuitry to send internet signals. Simply plug one adapter in to an outlet near your modem or router and place another in your desired location. Plug an ethernet cable into each end and you’ll have an extended network.
This model features AV500 speeds, built-in status indicator lights and 128-bit AES Encryption. More details below. Rated 4/5 stars by over 200 Amazon customers.
