In home networking, the fastest way — in terms of data speed — to connect devices together is via network cables. However, running cables properly, which involves making networking ports and connector heads, is no easy task. This is part of the reason the wireless network (Wi-Fi) has become so popular. But chances are, there’s a spot in your home that the Wi-Fi signal can’t reach, because of distance or thick walls. This is when a power line connection can be a useful alternative.
Power line adapters basically turn the electrical wiring of a home into network cables for a computer network. You need at least two power line adapters to form the first power line connection. The first adapter is connected to the router and the second to the Ethernet-ready device at the far end. After the first connection, you just need one more adapter to add another Ethernet-ready device. With the lastest power line standard, which is the Powerline AV2 (or HomePlug AV2), you can connect up to 16 devices to an existing network using your home’s electrical wiring. This new standard can also offer the speed of around half that of a true wired Gigabit connecti

Is powerline as fast as Ethernet?A 500Mbps Powerline was on an average twice as fast as 200Mbps Powerline kits, and the gigabit 1,000Mbps or 1,200Mbps about a third faster still. Other factors in speed include the speed of the Ethernet connection. … Powerline adapters with Gigabit Ethernet may theoretically max at 1,000Mbps or 1Gbps.
Do Powerline adapters work well?
It’s also ideal for connecting old devices to the Internet that don’t have built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, avoiding cluttering up your living room with a tangle of Ethernet cables. Powerline is a neat and effective networking solution. Powerline technology is arguably more secure than a wireless network too
Is av600 compatible with av500?
TP-LINK AV200,AV500, AV600 powerline adapters adopte HomePlug AV Standard, so they are compatible with each other,AV1200 adopt HomePlug AV2,that is also backward compatible with HomePlug AV standard,which means TP-LINK AV200,AV500,AV600,AV1200 are all compatible with each other.
