Powerline Adapter Solution for At-Home Internet

You can get a wired ethernet connection that’s far from your Wi-Fi router at home!

Working from home and learning from home is the new normal. This has forced some people to set up their workstations in rooms that are far from their home router. This is like rolling out the red carpet for connection issues, which shouldn’t be your new normal. Solid Signal has the solution for improving internet connections throughout your home. It’s called the TP-Link AV600 ethernet-over-powerline starter kit. We call it a powerline adapter, and it offers HUGE benefits in a variety of situations.

Who Needs This Powerline Adapter?

Anyone who’s working from home and/or has kids who are learning from home. It’s also a must-have for anyone who enjoys streaming movies on a Wi-Fi connection. This device can also be a huge help to anyone who rents a room that’s far from the router. All of these folks can benefit from what this powerline adapter does.

Mike Childers is one Solid Signal employee who uses this product. I could tell you all about how the AV600 from TP-Link has helped him, but it sounds much better coming from him. Here’s what he had to say about this amazing and convenient powerline adapter:

“I use one to send ethernet through the power outlets to my back bedroom where signal is sparse. It gives me a direct ethernet connection, which is pretty fast.”

The AV600 continues to be a huge help to Mike on the days he works from home. He also said he and his wife use the powerline adapter when Mike is off the clock. “We use it to stream movies over Wi-Fi,” he added. “We get a higher-quality picture and sound when we’re connected by Ethernet!”

How to Use This Powerline Adapter

If you need this solution, you’ll love how easy it is to use. Can you plus something into a wall outlet? If you can do that, you can use the AV600. Well, there’s more to it than that, but not much. Here’s how to set up this powerline adapter:

  1. Plug one box into a wall outlet near the router.
  2. Wire that box to the router.
  3. Plug the other box in the room where you plan to work.
  4. Wire that plug to your device.

So, how does this powerline adapter connect your remote device to the router? By using the wires in your home’s electrical system. Granted, that’s an overview of how TP-Link’s device works.
