Installing Cat5 cables through your house can be messy and cumbersome, not to mention expensive. If you don't have the time for crimping cables and installing wallplates, Ethernet over the existing power cables is a great solution. The device will convert Ethernet packets from the Ethernet port to powerlines communication packets (PLC packets), which run on regular home power lines, then converts them from PCL packets back to Ethernet packets. Running on the HomePlug AV standard, you can connect a PC to a PC, a PC to a xDSL modem/router or a wireless access point to a xDSL device and enjoy up to 200Mbps connection speed. To ensure the best speeds over the line try to minimise the number of "noisy" appliances connected and avoid connecting via a filter/surge powerboard. If no Ethernet cable is connected, sleep mode will be engaged to conserve power. Two 115mm Cat5 cables are included for connection from the EoP device to your PC or other networking product.
