Value 500AV home plug Adapter with mainspassthrough
Home plug is a fast and simple way to connect to the Internet with easy connection between your computers, games consoles, laptops, smart phones anywhere in your home where you have a mains socket.
You need at least two home plugs to create the connection. Traditionally, one plug is connected to your Internet router, the 2nd plug is placed in the remote area, such as your lounge, study or kitchen. The Plug connected to the router, takes the Internet signal and transfers it along your mains wiring, the 2nd plug takes the signal and distributes it via the Ethernet port directly to your device.
The mains passthrough socket is a useful addition to this plug. The socket is filtered which makes it ideal for plugging in other power supplies which may cause noise on your mains. Often lots of power supplies in one mains extension causes noisy mains which can interfere with home plugs, using the filtered socket on the mains passthrough adapter can help alleviate this problem in your home.
If you are a short of sockets this adapter is useful, plug the mains passthrough device in the wall and plug your mains extension into the mains passthrough socket.
Powered by the Qualcomm Atheros Value AR7420 chipset this 500AV adapter is compliant with IEEE1901 and Homeplug AV, allowing hassle free compatibility with existing Homeplug AV devices and other suppliers of home plug AV devices.
