TRENDnet TPL-303E2K Powerline AV Adapter Kit
With the growing demand of faster and more accessible internet, new technologies such as fiber optics are being introduced. It's only natural that companies like TRENDnet are coming up with innovative and easier ways to allow you to use this technology in your home. TRENDnet has recently introduced the TPL-303E2K 200Mbps Powerline AV adapter kit for specifically this reason. The TRENDnet TPL-303E2K uses the existing wiring in your home or office to provide a secure, high-speed network. By connecting one adapter to your router and the other to the ethernet port on your computer, you're able to easily give internet access to that computer just like it was plugged directly into the router. With support for up to 8 adapters, a network with many devices is able to be created. Within this article, Benchmark Reviews tests and benchmarks the TRENDnet 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter kit TPL-303E2K.
Hardwiring your network would naturally be the easiest way to obtain internet, however sometimes it's unfeasible, specifically for home or small offices. Those who are unable to hardwire often turn to the next alternative: wireless. In some cases this technology is also unable to be used, such as in an apartment or a house with interference. A less obvious technology strives to solve this problem: powerline networking.
Powerline technology has many advantages over a standard wireless network. It's quite inexpensive; no extra equipment is needed, other than the AV Adapter. The network uses your existing powerlines. It's also easier to install, as every room in a typical house has several electrical outlets. This kit would be useful for those unable to connect to a standard wireless network.
Simply put, the Powerline AV Adapter kit is an interesting technology which allows users who would otherwire be unable to connect to a network to connect to one easily.
