The TPL-420E2K (Version v1.0R) has been discontinued.  It has been replaced by the TPL-420E2K (Version v1.02R).
TRENDnet’s Powerline 1200 AV2 Adapter Kit, model TPL-420E2K, comes with two Powerline adapters to create an extreme performance Powerline network using an existing electrical system. No CD installation required—encrypted TRENDnet adapters auto-connect out of the box. Plug in the first adapter and network it to your existing router. Plug in other adapters on the same electrical system and they auto-connect to the first adapter for immediate internet access.
Plug In Install
Simply plug in TRENDnet adapters! They auto-connect out of the box over an encrypted Powerline signal.

* Maximum of 8 adapters (nodes) recommended for streaming video across your network.
** 1.2 Gbps is the maximum theoretical Powerline data rate when connected to another Powerline 1200 device. Data throughput may vary by circuit wire conditions. If an electrical system does not have a grounded connection, the theoretical networking speed is reduced to 600 Mbps.
*** Powerline communication works on a single electrical system. (Usually controlled by a single distribution panel). Power strip, GFCI outlets, and AFCI circuit breakers may degrade Powerline network signals.
