General Advice

As home networking continues to spread and evolve at rapid speed, some users find that their standard 802.11g wireless router does not reach all corners or their home, or that they would like to have their wireless network originate from a point of their choosing, rather than be tethered to the point where the Internet enters their home. Other users would rather have a wireless network where no product is on the floor, and no cables are visible at all.

Receive Wireless Internet from any of your Power Sockets

The HomePlug Wireless Access Points allows users to have their wireless network originate form the middle of their home, or from the furthest extremity, with no visible cables. The HomePlug Wireless Access Points can be plugged into any electrical outlet to create an area of wireless access.

A HomePlug Ethernet Adapter is then required to connect to an existing wired or wireless router from any vendor.
