HomePlug AV 1000 adapters and starter kits (Gigabit HomePlugs) are designed to not only expand a home or office network but to easily stream media or share files to multiple wired or wireless devices that are beyond the reach of a router or switch. In a nutshell, HomePlugs are simply adapters that plug into your electrical wall sockets to create a data and multimedia network over your existing ring-main wiring.
You need one adaptor for your router and one for each additional device that you want to connect to your network. You can buy adaptors individually, but we’ve rounded up the top HomePlug AV 1000 starter kits from a number of manufacturers that include two adaptors as that’s the minimum you need to connect a single computer or other device to your network.
HomePlug AV 1000 which nominally operates at 1000Mbps, is fine for web browsing, multi-device networks, online gaming, high-bandwidth applications, emailing and all streaming video services such as YouTube, love Film and Netflix.
