With a 200Mbps Powerline link rate and a 300Mbps wireless N rate, the TL-WPA281KIT is ideal for bandwidth consuming applications like video streaming, online gaming and Internet calls.
200Mbps Powerline/300Mbps Wireless Transfer Rates
With advanced HomePlug AV technology, the TL-WPA281 Starter Kit provides users with stable, high-speed data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps on a line length of up to 985 feet. Together, with its’ built-in QoS and its’ powerful AES encryption, the TL-WPA281KIT is a great choice for an entire home solution to connect all network compatible devices -- from computers and game consoles to set-top boxes for IPTV to printers and NAS hard drives.
300Mbps Wireless N Rate—Extend Wireless Coverage
With wireless speeds of up to 300Mbps, you can effortlessly extend their network via an existing Powerline and broadcast a wireless signal to another area of your home or office.

Pair Button for Easy Network Security
By simply pushing the Pair button on your TL-WPA281KIT adapters, you can set up a hassle-free Powerline network within minutes that’s complete with 128-bit AES encryption for network security and data protection.
It's that simple!
1. Plug the adapter into a power outlet.
2. Connect the device via a network cable to the adapter.
3. Press the encryption buttons—and you're done!
WPS One Button Security
Compatible with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), the TL-WPA281 Starter Kit allows you to setup your security by simply pressing the “WPS” button. This automatically establishes a WPA2 secure connection which is more secure than WEP encryptions. Not only is WPA2 faster than normal security setups, you also won’t have to remember a password!
Support QoS for Multiple-media Optimization
| ||With Quality of Service (QoS), you can determine how much bandwidth is allocated to each application. This can guarantee that each application will have some bandwidth, meaning that no single application can take down an entire Internet connection. All you have to do is choose which type of traffic you use – Internet surfing, online gaming, video streaming etc. -- and the QoS will guarantee clear, instant reproduction of that application even when with other applications are running on the network at the same time. |
