Wireless Powerline adapter guide

No ratings

Wireless Powerline adapters extend your wireless network around your home without the need for long cabling, by using your existing electrical wiring.

Our wireless Powerline kit includes a pair of adapters. One adapter is the Powerline Transmitter which you'll need to connect to your router, and the other is the Powerline Receiver which should be placed where you'd like to extend your wireless coverage.
