Extend internet connectivity into hard-to-reach places without slowing to a crawl.
UpdatedPowerline networking is a technology that's capable of transforming an in-house mains power circuit into a home networking infrastructure.
Netgear has an extensive range of Powerline products with lowly speeds of 14Mbps at the low end and 200Mbps HomePlug AV at the top end. You can extend the Powerline network with Netgear adapters that sport 802.11g wireless, so Netgear's choice for this review was very interesting
The strange name of the Solwise PL-200AV-PIGGY adapter makes more sense once you unpack the box. Each adapter is rather tall at 123mm and is also relatively deep at 71mm because it carries a female three-pin mains power socket piggy-back style.
The new Edimax HP-2001AV 200Mbps PowerLine Ethernet is the company's ﬁrst HomePlug AV product and has a maximum speed of 200Mbps. In our testing the Edimax kit was fully compatible with the Solwise PL-200AV-PIGGY, which supports the same HomePlug AV standard.
