Product description

Product Description

Actiontec’s new MegaPlug™ 85 Mbps Ethernet Adapter Twin-pack ups the ante for ease of use and network expandability. Just plug a MegaPlug Ethernet Adapter in any 2- or 3-prong electrical outlet in one room of your house, and another MegaPlug Adapter to your main computer or gateway, and you’ve got instant network access across your power lines. What could be easier? If you need a simple way to extend your home network, the MegaPlug 85 Mbps Ethernet Adapter is the quickest and most economical way to do it. Networking Made Easy- Nothing could be easier than creating a network connection with a pair of MegaPlug Ethernet Adapters. Instead of stringing unsightly Ethernet cables all over your house, the Adapters use your home’s already installed and hidden power lines to transfer data at up to 85 Mbps, making every available electrical outlet a potential network connection. Your networking possibilities are suddenly endless! Broad Compatibility and More- Use the MegaPlug 85 Mbps Ethernet Adapter to link your computers together, install a networked printer, or connect another device (scanner, networkable hard drive, etc.) to your network.

From the Manufacturer

How does it work?

It's simple. The 85 Mbps Ethernet Adapter Twin-Pack uses your home electrical lines to create up to a high speed network throughout your home, giving devices like Blu-Ray players, TiVO or DVRs, gaming consoles, and computers access to the Internet.

Why better than wireless

"Why don't I just use wireless networking instead? I'm more familiar with it."

Because there are some great advantages to powerline technology.

  • Powerline products have more consistent transmissions. You won't see the kind of fadeouts and connection drops as you do in wireless.
  • Powerline works in places where wireless can't. Powerline will give you a strong connection throughout your electrical system, whether connecting into a concrete basement or throughout a large home.

The 85 Mbps Ethernet Adapter Twin-Pack contains everything you need to create your Powerline home network, and it's very easy to install.

What's in the box?

The Actiontec MegaPlug 85 Mbps Ethernet Adapter Kit contains the following:

  • Two Ethernet adapters
  • Two Ethernet cables
  • CD - including an installation guide and user manual
  • Quick Start guide
