TP-LINK's TL-PA211 powerline adapter takes advantage of your home's existing electrical wires to transfer data while simultaneously transferring traditional power. That means, with no additional wiring required, users can simply plug the TL-PA211 into existing power sockets and instantly establish a networking infrastructure. With high-speed data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps, users can enjoy HD video streaming, online gaming, VoIP or any other bandwidth intensive tasks for work or play.

Super Small Design
With its new ultra-compact housing design, TP-LINK's TL-PA211 is much smaller than most other 200Mbps Powerline Products. At just 30mm thick and with its high quality, elegant white shell, it nearly blends completely in front of any power outlet.

Up to 200Mbps, 300 Meters
With advanced HomePlug AV technology, TL-PA211 provides users with stable, high-speed data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps on a line length of up to 300 meters. Together with its built-in Qos and powerful AES encryption, the TL-PA211 is a great choice for a whole home solution to connect all network compatible devices--from computers and game consoles to set-top boxes for IPTV to printers and NAS hard drives.

Twin Pack Design
A PLC (powerline) connection is established by transmitting data through the electrical wires between two outlets, so it requires at least two PLC adapters plugged into those two outlets to complete the network. With twin pack design, the starter kit is ideal for new users establishing their first PLC network or experienced users intent on expanding their networks.

Reduces Power Consumption Up to 65%
The TL-PA211, a new-generation Powerline Adapter, with its practical design and sophisticated Power-Saving Mode consumes less power when compared with existing Powerline Adapters. When there is no data transmission or reception occurs over a certain period of time, it will automatically switch from its regular "Working" Mode to "Power-Saving" Mode that will reduce its energy consumption by up to 65%*.

*Actual data will vary because of the network conditions and environmental factors

Pair Button for Easy Network Security
Simply by pushing the Pair button on the adapters, users can set up a hassle-free Powerline network within minutes, complete with 128-bit AES encryption for network security and data protection.

 Excellent product. Easy to use.

I bought the kit to connect my new Panasonic TV to my router to be able to use the Viera Connect facilities and also to implement the Media Server function. In less than 5 minutes from opening the box the device was in use. To set the passwords was a little bit more tricky but the TP-Link web site has the necessary easy to follow guide.

My two devices are on different floors but on the same ring. Each device is plugged into an extension lead without apparent signal loss.

Works a treat. Fast enough to stream HD BBC iPlayer without problems.

I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to install a network connection without the hassle of installing new cables and for whom a wireless solution is not viable.

 Improved connection speed to PS3 from 2.5Mbs to 4.5Mbs

Having suffered at the varying speeds offered by a wireless connection to my playstation 3 I decided to explore alternatives. I first ran a number of download speed tests through the "internet connection test" on the PS3; wireless connection gave average speeds of 2.5Mbs (over 10 tests) and a wired connection (LAN cable straight from router into PS3) gave average speeds of 4.5Mbs (also over 10 tests). Unfortunately for me my router is upstairs and the PS3 downstairs and i really didn't fancy trying to run a 10m LAN cable down the stairs and around door frames etc... It was in my quest to gain LAN cable speeds i found this product. Bought last Thursday (13th Oct) and delivered yesterday (18th Oct) i was up and running within 2 minutes of opening the box. Following several download speed tests i was delighted to discover this little wonder of technology offered me exactly the same speed as a wired connection and I am now enjoying the spoils of a consistent download speed of 4.5Mbs (a further 10 tests). Incidentally the upload speed also improved over the wireless connection - particularly useful for those who play online.

Other point to note is that i have used mains socket (recommended) for both homeplugs.

 Stress free connection

After trying for some time to connect a range extender, without success, I spotted this product and decided to try it.
It arrived today and I plugged one into my router and the other into my desktop computer that had no signal at all. It took about a minute to set up the connection automatically and the speed and connection on my desktop is amazing.
This even works brilliantly with extension leads. I have the main plugged into one next to my modem and the one that powers my desktop is even plugged into a surge protected one and works without problem. I'm now going to buy another for my daughter's room.
Very impressed. Great product and stress free connection.

 Amazing. I can even use it in my garden shed!!!

Bought this as I had poor wifi signal in my upstairs room. It gives me 30mb download speeds the same as plugging directly into a router. I also have a shed at the end of my garden and it let's me have Internet there which is 60 meters from the house. Very good product.

 So simple, yet amazing!

I had an N spec router downstairs which gave me a signal throughout the house, and out into the garden, but my problem was that the router couldn't move plus neither could my main PC upstairs - so unfortunately I was stuck with a weaker signal in the room I needed it most!
Then I saw these little beauties!
It really is as easy as it sounds, connect the modem to one plug, then pop into the mains. At the computer, connect to the other plug and then into the mains. Press the 'sync' button on one plug, do the same on the other, and within a minute the plugs have synced and you have a rapid connection (as fast as your incoming broadband is!).
I decided to go from the tp plug - router - pc just to give me a wee bit of extra security (with the router firewall) and also keep my wireless signal available if needed. A direct ethernet connection from the router to the pc of course keeps the speed as high as possible.
As far as my computer goes, and home entertainment etc, this is by far the best use of 35 quid !!
Now I know I can add more of these wherever I want them about the house and it will all just 'work'.
