Netgear Powerline

Powerline is used to extend internet access in every room through existing electrical wiring. It provides a substitute to wireless or Ethernet-only networks. NETGEAR offers a vast range of Powerline kits or adapters which provide up to Gigabit speeds.

A Powerline network includes multiple Powerline devices communicating with one another using electrical wires. In order to link Powerline network to LAN (Local Area Network), one of the Powerline devices is connected to router via an Ethernet cable.

Important things to consider during Powerline Network Setup

For achieving the optimum performance of Powerline Networking, go through the following guidelines:

  • Do not plug Powerline devices into wall sockets which are located near electronic gadgets like refrigerators, washers or dryers. Such devices cause interference and reduce the Powerline performance.
  • Avoid plugging Powerline devices into an extension cord, power strip or surge protector.
  • Make use of a damage-free electrical outlet to plug in the Powerline product.
  • Be sure that a faster internet connection is accessible during the setup process.
  • Do not use the public WiFi for setup or NETGEAR troubleshooting.
