The Powerline 500 AV Adapter, model TPL-401E, uses any electrical outlet to create a secure building-wide high speed network. Connect one adapter to your network and plug another adapter into any outlet on your electrical system for instant high speed network access. Connect adapters quickly using the convenient one-touch Sync button. Use up to 16* adapters to network devices in different rooms without running new cabling.

A Gigabit Ethernet port maintains high performance wired connections. Manage each Powerline adapter on your network with the included Windows utility. LED displays convey device status for easy troubleshooting. Advanced 128-bit AES encryption secures your network. This adapter is ideal for use in buildings that interfere with wireless networking signals.
