Have you had the frustrating experience of repeatedly trying to connect to the internet via your Wi-Fi router in some other room at home, but not having any success? Or perhaps you have thought about how nice it would be if you could chat with your online friends while you’re clearing out your basement, but don’t know how it can be done? Welcome the network adapter from Amped Wireless.
Amped Wireless is one of the foremost manufacturers of powerful long range wireless communication products for both commercial and domestic use.
Recently they announced that they were launching an adapter that would enable users to access the internet and networks from any room in the house with the help of the power outlets they already have; there is no need for any extra electrical wiring work to be done. The PLA 2 adapter will also enable users to extend Wi-Fi range. Dubbed the PLA 2 Powerline Nano AV500 1- Port Network Adapter kit, it has two paired Powerline network adapters.
Spokespersons from Amped Wireless reiterated that the company was committed to providing solutions for customers who need to extend networks. In homes where there are thick concrete walls, Wi-Fi may not be very effective. This is where Powerline comes in, it eliminates Wi-Fi dead spots, and provides the perfect solution: plug and play. Gaming consoles and audio visual devices can also be connected to these adapters. In short any electrical outlet at home or your office can be converted into a network connection. The connectivity can be extended as far as your backyard, garage or basement.
If you are looking to extend your Wi-Fi signal you can do so by combining a Powerline adapter with the company’s high power Wi-Fi Access Points. Network adapters of this type have been the talk of the town in recent times. Data travels faster thru electrical systems as compared to wireless or Wi-Fi connections. These connections are also not vulnerable to interference in signals, which is not the case with wireless.
Amped Wireless claims that this is the smallest adapter of its kind in the industry. Each adapter has an Ethernet port and a power outlet passing thru that will let you connect your laptop, TV or some other device.
Using this is super easy. All you need to do is plug an adapter into a power outlet near you and use an Ethernet cable to connect it to a router. The second adapter should be plugged into another power outlet on the same system, and then connected to an Ethernet based machine. So it is completely hassle free and very quick.
And it is safe. The PLA 2 adapter had 128 bit encryption so that your network will not have any intruders. As the adapter is compact it can be installed with minimum fuss, and you also have space for other appliances to be plugged in.
The PLA 2 network adapter is available on the company website for $ 99.99 from next week it will also be seen on retailer’s shelves and with select online sellers as well.
