PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter
• Enables networking over the
existing power lines in a home
• Simple Plug-n-Play Installation
• Works in more than 90% of
typical home outlets
• Compact design plugs directly
into the wall
The PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter lets you turn the existing powerlines in your home
or office into a high-speed network. Now you don’t have to drill through the walls
and climb through the attic or cellar to install network cables -- just use the wires that
already run through the building!
The PowerLine AV Adapter interfaces Ethernet devices to the HomePlug AV PowerLine
network standard. Just plug the PowerLine AV Adapter into the wall, and connect
your Ethernet-equipped device to the Adapter using the included network cable, and
you’ve turned your whole house into network infrastructure! Attach more computers
to the network by simply plugging them into the wall anywhere in the house, using
more PowerLine AV Adapters.
Once your computers are connected to the network, they can share resources
like printers and storage space, and all kinds of files -- music, digital pictures, and
documents. With up to 100Mbps data rates, you can play lag-free head-to-head
network computer games, and run media-centric applications like streaming video
and Voice over IP telephony. And if you use a PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter to
interface one of the famous Linksys Broadband Routers from your cable or DSL
Internet connection to your PowerLine AV network, you’ll be able to get to the Internet
from any computer in the house.
The Linksys PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter is the perfect solution for high-speed, “no
new wires”, home or office networking.
