Streaming Video -- Even In Your Attic
With the Belkin Powerline AV Starter Kit, you can send high-bandwidth content from the Internet to computers and network devices all over your home through the electrical wiring in your house. This kit lets you convert any electrical outlet in your home into a network connection.

For instance, if you have a computer in the attic or other room where a wireless signal is weak, the Powerline AV is the perfect solution. You don't need to drill holes to extend your Ethernet cable, and you won't have to worry about the slow data speeds and intermittent dropouts that weak wireless connections are plagued with. Additionally, unlike wireless connections, the Powerline AV network connection isn't affected by factors such as cordless telephones and other wireless interference.

There is no performance penalty that comes with the convenience of the Powerline AV; data speeds along at up to 200 Mbps, meaning it can handle even heavy Internet usage, such as downloading and streaming music and video files, playing online games, and making VoIP phone calls, all without any lag time or hiccups.

Enhanced Security Keeps Out Snoopers
There is no need to worry about security either. With 128-bit DES link encryption, the Powerline AV ensures that your information is safe and secure from intruders. Since the information is all transferred with wires, hackers can't simply sniff your information out of the air, as they easily can with insecure wireless connections.

Simple Plug-and-Play Setup
Setup is as simple as plugging one adapter into a wall outlet and connecting it into your router, and then plugging a second adapter into any outlet wherever you need a network connection. This kit includes two adapters, so you can create a network within minutes of opening the box. If you have need for another connection, just purchase another adapter.

The Belkin Powerline AV is HomePlug AV certified, can coexist with HomePlug 1.0, and is compliant with 802.3/802.3u standards. It is backed by a lifetime warranty.

What's in the Box
Two Powerline Networking Adapters, two Ethernet cables, two power cords, two wall plug adapters, quick installation guide, and CD-ROM with installation software and user manual.



Create a network connection for your gaming console no matter where it is.

Easy to plug and play.
D. Squires
Just plug both adaptors into their respective walls, one cable to your computer, one cable to your router and voila!
David Molina
The homeplug adapter connects faster, has better throughput, and is more reliable than wireless.

This is a very cool product. If you currently have long Cat 5 cable runs on the floor this device fixes that.

There is no set up. Plugged both adapters into my 120 outlets, waited a couple of minutes for them to find each other and then I plugged my router into on adapter, my laptop into the other across the room. My laptop just felt it was part of my home network. laptop is running at 100 Mbps, much faster then it was using wireless.

I even plugged a hub into the adapter near my laptop and when I work from home have two laptops running with no drop in network performance. Currently use IP phones on my work computer and there is no interference caused by the devices.

This device added my much flexibility to my home network.

Encouraged by positive reviews, I tried using these to connect two Airport Extreme Base Stations (AEBS) separated by one floor and about 60 feet apart. The AEBSs were set up extend a 802.11n network wirelessly. Connecting them using these powerline adapters made the speed to drop considerably. I tested transferring a 200 MB file: with AEBSs connected wirelessly the transfer rate was about 13Mbs; with powerline adapters it dropped to 2-3Mbs.

I concluded that the wiring inside the house is not suitable for using this technology.

Otherwise, the product seems to be a polished product with easy setup.

I was so hesitant to try powerline ethernet, but I am so glad I did.

Unpacking the box of contents took longer than the setup itself. It's so easy to setup this little Belkin Powerline AV adaptor. Just plug both adaptors into their respective walls, one cable to your computer, one cable to your router and voila! instant broadband at speeds equal to what I get with my computer directly plugged into the router. I ran the broadband speed test at [...] to confirm this.

My wife uses the PC downstairs and our apartment is about 2000 square feet. The cable modem is located upstairs at the opposite end of the house. My wireless G router would not reach downstairs, so I wasn't confident that an expensive N router would improve things.

If you have any doubts about trying powerline ethernet, with this little Belkin you can put them to rest. I believe that with any normal use of the product (believe it or not, some people use these things over multiple apartments in the same building or neighboring buildings) you will be much happier than with some of the wireless solutions.

I currently live in Spain and my broadband provider is ONO. On average we get 18Mbit to 20Mbit downloads and 500Kbps to 1Mbit uploads with ping times around 30-45ms...it's very fast, and I'm impressed this Belkin can keep up with what I'm paying for. With wireless G, I was only getting at most around 6Mbit downloads---so, you can see that wifi can drop your internet speeds significantly...

Hope this helps...

I recently bought a Playstation 3 for my HDTV which is in the living room downstairs. There is no RJ-45 jack downstairs near my HDTV, so I thought maybe the wireless card on the PS3 would be enough to handle my networking needs. Boy, was I wrong!

The wireless on the PS3 was dead slow. I thought about getting a 60ft Cat5 cable and running down the stairs, but that would've been too ugly, so I decided to give the Belkin 200 Powerline a try. That was the best thing I could've done. Steady connections and way faster than wireless. Games download in a flash, video conversations are seamless. Setup was a breeze too...just plug and play!

The price is a bit on the high side, but it is totally worth it.

I reviewed all the current "Powerline Adapters" and this was reviewed to be the best. After receiving the unit, setup was very easy and I could not notice a difference in speed to my hardwired high-speed cable internet service. It is fast enough to stream video without a problem. A great piece of engineering.

Ok. This product has the same problem that X10 and Homeplug have. It works sometimes and sometimes doesn't depending on the state of your house wiring.

Example: I plugged it in near my ethernet switch and connected it and no problems. Then I connected the other plug-in in another room where my son's xbox is. Worked great.

Son comes home, goes to use it. "Dad, the network is down". Hmm. Worked 2 hours ago fine.

Figured out that BECAUSE THE CLOTHES DRYER was on, it was killing the network. So I moved it to an isolated
circuit, which I know is isolated because I added it in the past. Worked fine there but that is so far from the tv I will have to go get an extra long ethernet cable.

Bottom line, when it works it works well but getting it to keep working is going to be a challenge. I think I am going to go back to wireless repeaters and not have to fool with the power line stuff. It is maddening.

I've been using this product for over a week and it works much better than I expected it to work. I am getting somewhere between 80Mbs and 100 Mbs in my condominium, with power wiring route back through the panelboard between opposite ends of the grid. I'm also running the ethernet connections through RJ45 suppression ports on TrippLite 100Bt units at each end (with no discernable effect on thru-put). Later, I plan on trying a surge suppression set up where the Belkin units will be connected to the wiring grid (outlets) through a surge suppressor there, instead of supressing at the ethernet cabling.***********************NOTE: As of 05/01/10 this very solid hardware is still working, 100%! No issues whatsoever.
