What is a Powerline Adapter

A Powerline adapter is a device that will convert the electrical wiring in your house into a speedy computer network. This will giving you the convenience of being able to access the network wherever you have a plug socket, no cables snaking around the house, and the low latency, speed and security you’d expect with a wired connection.

The Advantages of Powerline Adapters

Here are the advantages of a power-line network:

  • It's inexpensive.
  • It uses existing electrical wiring.
  • Every room of a typical house has several electrical outlets.
  • It's easy to install.
  • A printer, or any other device that doesn't need to be directly connected to a computer, doesn't have to be physically near any of the computers in the network.
  • It doesn't require that any special card to be installed in the computer.
