The Solwise PL-600AV-SMT-PIGGY HomePlug AV2 600Mbps can transform your home power lines into a networking infrastructure. HomePlug is a fast and simple way to connect to the Internet with easy connection between your computers, games consoles, laptops, smart phones anywhere in your home where you have a mains socket.
The mains passthrough socket is a useful addition to this plug. The socket is filtered which makes it ideal for plugging in other power supplies which may cause noise on your mains. Often lots of power supplies in one mains extension causes noisy mains which can interfere with HomePlugs, using the filtered socket on the mains passthrough adapter can help alleviate this problem in your home.
The Solwise 600AV-SMT SmartLink engine incorporate an Atheros QCA7450 chipset and AR1540 AFE, making it capable of transmitting over the standard Live-Neutral configuration or over Live- Protective Earth. It automatically selects the best path for communication along your mains giving you improved network coverage in even the most challenging powerline environments. It features faster processing power, Gigabit Ethernet host interfaces and enhanced analog front end.
If you are a short of sockets this adapter is useful, plug the mains passthrough device in the wall and plug your mains extension into the mains passthrough socket.
You need at least two HomePlugs to create the connection. Traditionally, one plug is connected to your Internet router, the 2nd plug is placed in the remote area, such as your lounge, study or kitchen. The Plug connected to the router, takes the Internet signal and transfers it along your mains wiring, the 2nd plug takes the signal and distributes it via the Gigabit Ethernet port directly to your device.
Powered by the QCA7450 chipset this Solwise 600AV adapter is compliant with IEEE1901 and Homeplug AV2, allowing hassle free compatibility with existing Homeplug AV devices and other suppliers of HomePlug AV devices.
Enhanced Quality of Service (QOS) provides the guaranteed bandwidth required for multimedia including TV over IP (IPTV), higher data rate broadband sharing, Online- Gaming, VoIP Calls, extending Wireless coverage, Audio-Video transmission across the network as well as Network camera connectivity.
The Solwise 600AV adapters have a configuration push button for a convenient way of creating a secure HomePlug network without the need to use software. Security support is by 128-bit AES Hardware encryption, ensuring the network is secure.
Remember, you will need at least two HomePlug devices to form a HomePlug connection. More HomePlug AV devices can be added to further share your network.
*Whist the 600SMT adapters ‘should’ interoperate with other Homeplug adapters we have found that, on occasion, they cause problems when added to an existing network of 200AV or 500AV plugs. We would suggest that 600SMT adapters are used by themselves wherever possible.
