The Solwise NET-PL-200AV-PIGGY_MK3 HomePlug AV 200Mbps 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.
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 Ethernet port directly to your device.

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.

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.

Powered by the Qualcomm Atheros high-speed INT6400 chipset this Solwise 200AV adapter is compliant with IEEE1901 and Homeplug AV, allowing hassle free compatibility with existing Homeplug AV devices and other suppliers of HomePlug AV devices.  

Enhanced Quality of Service (QOS) also provides the guaranteed bandwidth reservations for multimedia payloads including TV over IP (IPTV), higher data rate broadband sharing, Online-Gaming, VoIP Calls, extending Wireless LANs coverage, Audio-Video transmission across the network as well as Network camera connectivity.

The Solwise 200AV adapters all 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.

 1.8metre Network cable included.

Why can buying a HomePlug be so complicated? Surely a plug is just a plug, don't they all do the same thing?

Why can buying a HomePlug be so complicated? Surely a 200AV plug is just a plug, don’t they all do the same thing? Why are they all so different in price when at the end of the day they all look the same?  Well the truth is, although they might all look much the same, the inside can vary immensely from plug to plug.  What many people don’t understand is that there are different chipset levels.

What is a chipset? A chipset is a set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manages the data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals.  Chipsets are usually designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors. Because it controls communications between the processor and external devices, the chipset plays a crucial role in determining system performance.

What this actually means in the real world is that a chipset is the piece inside the HomePlug that makes it work and sets the specification level of the plug.  Read More
