200Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapter

TPL-306E (Version v1.0R)

  • High speed building-wide networking from any electrical outlet
  • Compact form factor saves space
  • Power Save mode reduces power consumption by up to 80%
  • Use one unit to transmit, and up to 5 additional TPL-306Es to receive a network signal
  • Advanced AES data encryption

The TPL-306E (Version v1.0R) has been discontinued.  For a list of discontinued products, click here.

The 200Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapter, model TPL-306E, uses any electrical outlet to create a secure high speed building-wide network. Connect one adapter to your existing network and plug another adapter in to any outlet on your electrical system for instant high speed network access throughout your home.

The compact form factor offers more space around electrical outlets for other devices. Adapters connect automatically with no installation required. For added security, TRENDnet recommends using the one-touch connect button to change the default network key.

Use up to 6 adapters to network devices in different rooms without the need for new cabling. Power Save mode reduces power consumption by up to 80%. LED displays convey device status for easy power management and troubleshooting. Quality of Service technology prioritizes video, audio, and online gaming. Advanced AES encryption secures your network. This adapter is ideal for use in buildings that interfere with wireless networking signals.
