Making sure homes and offices have sufficient network coverage can be an arduous task, especially if your location is quite large and thus difficult to cover with WiFi signal.
Cables can help to get reliable, high-speed networking to the far reaches of your property, but dealing with the resulting mess isn’t much fun.
Fortunately, modern networking technology has evolved considerably, and can now make use of the existing cabling in your home to hook your devices up; cabling that you neither see nor think about – your electrical wiring.
By simply plugging an adapter into a wall socket, connecting that to a router and another adapter into a power outlet anywhere in your home/office, you can extend your network.
Netgear’s Powerline 1000 adapters do exactly that, and you have the choice of plugging in adapters that produce a wireless networking signal, or ones into which cables must plug.
The adapters merely use the electrical wiring connecting all of your power outlets as they would a regular network cable, thereby extending your network into the far reaches of your premises with very little fuss.
And thanks to support for the HomePlug AV2 specification, these adapters are capable of pushing data across your network at speeds of up to 1Gbps. That’s the same as a wired gigabit router, and is especially useful for high-speed data transfers across your network.
The best part is how these adapters embody the “plug and play” philosophy – all you need to do is plug them in correctly, and you’re good to go.
Networking your home and office this way couldn’t be easier.
