What is Powerline Networking?
The majority of internet users now use a router to connect to the internet. These are plugged into the mains and can be connected to a computer using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable. The main advantage of wireless networking is that it reduces the amount of cables required, while also connecting to multiple systems simultaneously. However, because the signal comes from a single source, this means that the strength can vary depending on the distance between the router and computer.
The traditional way to solve this was using an extended Ethernet cable to connect directly. Luckily, there’s a simple, practical way to extend your internet connection—without the hard work. Powerline Wi-Fi options are an ever growing networking solution that bring connectivity where you don’t already have it. Using the circuitry inside your house as an antenna, powerline networking can achieve speeds of 1300+ Mbps without the inconvenience of weakening signals as more devices are attached or you move further away.
Easy Installation: How a Powerline Adapter Works
It’s simple to use a powerline adapter. The plug-and-play design means that all you have to do is take the first adapter and attach one cable into a wall socket near your router and the other end into the router. You then connect the second powerline adapter to the socket near the device that you want to attach to the network—the technology will do the rest.
What are the Advantages of a Powerline Adapter?
With many of powerline devices offering the ability to act as a Wi-Fi Extender or Wireless node, they are the perfect solution if you are having problems getting a Wi-Fi signal from one end of your house to another. Powerline adapters also allow for a better connection and a more continuous stream of data, making gaming much easier than over Wi-Fi as it is much less prone to drop-outs.
