What to Look for in a Powerline Adapter and How to Set It Up

Powerline adapters offer internet connections for devices in your home without using as many wires. Search through this collection of adapters on eBay and prevent clutter in your home.

How secure is your connection with a powerline adapter?

Powerline adapters have secure connections because they run through the copper wiring in your home. Many models come with extra security features as well, such as 128 bit encryption and password protection. Its rare for the adapters signal to reach outside of the house, so the connection isnt easily penetrated by hackers. If you live in an apartment, however, the signal may extend into your neighbours apartment. Fortunately, features like password protection and encryption can prevent them from using the connection.

Can you watch HD video on a powerline adapter connection?

As long as the adapters speed is fast enough, you can watch HD video on the connection. Many powerline adapters are designed for use with smart TVs and gaming consoles, so they have fast speeds that allow for HD video and audio streaming. Some models are even 3D video friendly. Look for a powerline adapter that has at least 500 Mbps if watching video in HD is important to you. Higher speeds may be necessary if a lot of devices in your household will be using the connection. Examples of powerline adapters you can buy on eBay include the following:

  • TP LINK AV2000 2 Port Gigabit Passthrough Powerline Starter Kit
  • Brite View LinkE Mini
  • D Link DHP 309AV Powerline Kit
How do you set up a powerline adapter?

A kit should come with two adapters and two Ethernet cables, and once you have them, follow the steps listed below:

  • Step 1 Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into your router and the other end into the first adapter.
  • Step 2 Plug that adapter into a power outlet.
  • Step 3 Take the second Ethernet cable and plug it into the back of your TV.
  • Step 4 Connect the other end of the cable to the remaining adapter and then plug the adapter into a power outlet.

If you are concerned about taking up spots in your power outlets, you can buy adapters that are designed with a power socket, so that youre not losing a potential area for plugging in a device. Each model may have a slightly different procedure, so refer to the manufacturers instructions.

What are the benefits of powerline adapters?

Powerline adapters are useful for giving your smart TV that isnt Wi Fi enabled access to the internet without the need for running a cable from the TV to your router. Another reason you may want to use this type of product is if your house is large and the Wi Fi connection isnt strong in all areas of the home. The use of a powerline adapter can let you enjoy a strong internet connection in any area of your house.
