The short and sexy name for this product is – PLA2 Powerline Nano AV500 1-Port Network Adapter Kit. Long story short this gadget allows you to forgo a long Ethernet cable and instead run your networking data over a standard power-line. Nothing new there. The cool part about this new Power-Line offering is the fact that it moves data at speeds of up to 500 Mbps. Another nice feature is the pass-through power outlet on each adapter. Yours for about $109 here. More details after the break.
The Powerline Nano AV500 Network Adapter Kit extends your network to any room using the existing power outlets. The PLA2 includes two Powerline network adapters. Simply plug one adapter into an available power outlet and connect the adapter to your router. Plug the second adapter into another power outlet in your home or office and connect the adapter to your network device. With plug-and-play setup, it’s that easy. Enjoy surfing the web, watching movies or streaming music from any room! Powerline networking is ideal for homes and offices that have trouble with Wi-Fi connections or have metal walls that cause Wi-Fi interference. The PLA2 is perfect for connecting your smart TV, HD set top boxes, Blu-rayâ„¢ players, game consoles and more, to your home network. With the extra, pass-through power outlet on the adapters, you won’t have to worry about searching for an extra power outlet to power your devices. The small size of the adapter also allows for discreet installations on any wall or behind media center cabinets. The PLA2 provides a secure, reliable and stable Internet connection in places where Wi-Fi signals have problems reaching. The PLA2 can also be used with an Amped Wireless Wi-Fi Access Point to extend your Wi-Fi connection through thick walls and eliminate dead spots (see below for details).
