The Powerline Converter system uses the existing electrical wiring in your home or office to transmit network traffic. As long as you have a power outlet in a room, you can have network connectivity!
Each kit comes with two powerline adapters. Each adapter features a
standard US NEMA 1-15 non-polarized blade plug, which serves the dual
function of providing power and carrying the network data. Each adapter
also features a 10/100/1000Mbps auto-MDIX Ethernet port and a
Installation is as simple as plugging the adapters into wall outlets
and pressing the pairing buttons to establish a connection between the
two. By default the system creates a public, unprotected network.
However, by using the included setup utility, you can easily create a
private, protected network. Up to 9 total Powerline adapters can be used
within a single network and multiple networks can operate on the same
electric circuit, giving a level of flexibility and control not found in
most ordinary Ethernet configurations.
These Powerline adapters fully conform to the Homeplug AV2 standard,
which means that Tech Choice adapters can be used in the same network as
Homeplug AV2 compliant adapters from other manufacturers. The adapters
are able to transmit network traffic to distances up to 300 meters (984
feet), however for best results it is recommended to ensure the total
network length does not exceed 100 meters (328 feet).
Each Powerline adapter measures about 3.2" x 2.4" x 2.1" and is
compatible with AC power networks from 100 ~ 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz. LEDs on
the face of each converter indicate power and network connectivity
