Reaching out of the Wireless Cloud
In many homes, wireless Internet connectivity is a blessing. There
are no wires, no mess, and you can resonably avoid the “web” of wires
that occures when many different colored Ethernet patch cables are all
bundled up together connecting to routers, computers, printers, and
other networked devices.
However, the wonderful cloud of wireless technology only spreads so
far. Wireless signals generally do not penetrate concrete walls or
metal framing very well. Boosters can be added to some routers to
extend the range to those hard to reach areas of a home, but will
hardly help through previously mentioned cement or metal framed walls.
If you have a home theater room or office in a poor location, there is
a solution that can offer comperable speed to wireless that uses
standard AC power lines.
The Intellinet HomePlug adapters and router provide a solution that
transmits networking signals through conventional AC power lines
already installed in many homes.Â If you think this would
be a viable solution to your needs, you can choose between a router
and/or HomePlug adapters.
If you already have a router setup in your home and just need to
setup a “bridge”, purchasing a HomePlug kit is the ideal solution to
connect a computer or networked device that’s hard to reach wirelessly.
The Intellinet HomePlug kit comes with 2 adapters (sender/receiver) and
can be used with any device that connects via a standard Ethernet port.
When you need to split or distribute your interent connection to
multiple computers or networked devices (one of them needing to connect
via HomePlug), Intellinet provides a router with HomePlug capabilities
built-in. This allows you to share your internet connection and hook up
a computer with the AC power cable already installed in your home.
