The TRENDnet TPL-402E2K 500Mbps Powerline Kit offers a cost effective, simple solution to a RJ-45 wired network. Fact is, a wired network is still a lot faster then wireless. If you're looking into an easy to install wired network, this is it. It's a simple as plugging the adapter into the outlet and connecting the network cable to the computer.
I used to work for AT&T Uverse, we used a similar model by a different company. We had major problems with them, they are an easy hotfix to avoid a wireless network but extremely dependent on the electrical current in your home. We had alot of problems with them being able to transfer data over 6mbps at a consistent rate as a result. But in all fairness, these are by Trendnet, and I trust them more than the company we were working with, Asoka.
why does everyone call it rj-45...
its not for a telephone is it?
RJ11 is a telephone plug; RJ9 is a headset/handset plug; RJ45 is an Ethernet plug.
RJ9: Shortest of RJ11 and RJ45
RJ11: Longer than RJ9, but shorter than RJ45
RJ45: Longest of RJ11 and RJ9.
Get it? Good! Now, go back to school. :)
doens't this give noise to your power line and other divices would feel this.
I'm using wireless N,would I notice a difference with the 500mbps powerline adapter?
I've been really looking for Solutions like this for years!~
Our cable company uses a powerline ethernet thing for our TV, but if you use it on a power strip, we get distortion on our TV. If you run a vaccum or blender, you also get distortion. Sometimes, our TV is impossible to watch. I don't trust it that much.
It's the cable company, do you really expect it to be top quality? lol
I got the Devolo dLAN 200 AVplus Adapter, bought it cause i got sick of beeing unable to close my bedroom door. After i got crossfire setup on HIS Readeon HD 5870, the wireless card between the cards received so much interferance that it started to cause BSOD. Then i migrated to my old sweet RJ-45 cable. I accidently closed my bedroom door, so that wires snapped inside the cable. Bought the adapter and got pretty impressed by its preformance, i still havent noice tested it with ect. a vacuume cleaner.
I just loooooooooooooove that smile at the end!!
I'm curious as to how or if it performs if placed in a 4/8 way surge protected extension.
I've been looking at these for awhile, my router is in the basement and the top floor wireless is pretty weak. I need either a bridge, such as you recently reviewed, or powerline. I've been leaning more towards powerline for the desktops but would probably like the bridge too for the laptops.
Gee, heh... I'd rather run a mess of Ethernet cables throughout my apartment instead of paying for the expensive powerline adapters. If I want to stream TV shows to the kitchen while I cook, the 50'+ CAT6 Ethernet cable will pretty much be my only option since I can't afford 802.11n right now. Yep, I'm talking about streaming MPEG2 content from live television (mythtv.org) since 802.11g can only handle SD and not HD programming.
Oh, that is, if I can find 802.11n PCI adapter that is compatible with Linux, namely hostapd that allows me to convert my server into a wireless access point instead of having a separate wireless router with a wall outlet taken up.
True, but a small apartment is one then, a large home or office is a totally different situation. Having to wire RJ-45 cables though walls and floors would not be cost effective and time consuming. Although Cat 6 cables plus a Gigabit router would be the fastest option.
Connected TV, no tv for some reason has wifi but they all have ethernet jack, and my rj cable comes out the wall in my office, and then goes ingo wifi router to give internet to the rest of the house, but the living room TV... these little things r just absolutely perfect to do what i want to do
What i mesan, is basically u can skip on nettop or media pc for the living room by connectin ur main rig by these power line adapters and ur set, a wifi remote for ur main rig will probably cost u another 30 dead rabbits but its a lot less than a whole 200 poor rabbits for a decent media pc
is ther also a version for europe,
with other power connetor's?
I love powerline! I have a WD Livewire in my house, using it in the living room with my HTPC entertainment setup and the speeds are more than adequate for streaming HD content. What I like about the Livewire is that each adapter has support for up to 4 ports so you can connect up to 4 devices on each one.
100% Kickass product. Damn good review because these kits really are useful. I use netgear powerline kits for the digital TV Decoders I have at home. I was extremely happy getting rid of the cables.
