Why buy a Powerline Adapter? The technology has a far greater range than most Wi-Fi connections - particularly in large brick built houses where the wireless signal is severely hampered - and is generally more reliable too.
No próximo dia quatro de agosto, em São Paulo, se realizará pela primeira vez na América Latina um evento da HomePlug Aliance - Conferência Latino-Americana HomePlug: Habilitando Whole-Home Networking - com foco nas vantagens da utilização, no ambiente doméstico, de redes digitais alimentadas por energia elétrica - o que dispensa obras e configurações de equipamentos, pois é preciso apenas haver uma tomada de energia elétrica.
Trendnet announced today two new powerline adapter kits, the TPL-420E2K and the TPL-421E2K that supports the Powerline 1200 AV2 standard to offer Gigabit-class data rates. Both kits are set to be on the market by September of this year.
Power-line networking makes use of your electrical lines to give you a de facto wired network. It gives you the range of a wired network without any of the mess or the need to run cable behind the walls. Another useful feature, which I've used in every place I've ever deployed, is that you can use it as the backbone for your Wi-Fi network.
Networking isn't always the easiest thing to grasp for most; its underbelly is filled with incredibly complex black magic. Even if things like Wi-Fi are generally easy to setup and well understood, TP-Link has managed to make an expandable extension system that anyone can use, looks good, and performs well enough to bring HD video and fast internet/network access to dead zones in any office or home.
TP-Link has a new solution - the 300Mbps WiFi Range Extender, AV500 Powerline Edition. It offers both Ethernet and WiFi (802.11b/g/n), so all you have to do is plug in one end near your router and connect the two with one of the included Ethernet cables (you get two). The device that connects to your router is actually about half the size of previous HomePlug devices I've used, so it plays nicely with devices that need power and doesn't hog all the outlet space.
