The SlingLink Turbo brings network connectivity to any electrical wall outlet, making it ideal for the modern living room with blisteringly fast speeds up to 85 Mbps. With four switched ports, it connects your Slingbox, game console, DVR, computer or anything with an Ethernet jack to your home network. Now you can run high-speed Internet through your existing electrical wiring with a simple plug-and-play connection. Plus, SlingLink Turbo is compatible with any home router.
From the Manufacturer
Want to connect your Slingbox but your TV is in a different room than your router? Need a network connection for your computer or game console in an area where you have no wireless coverage? Want an easy-to-set-up networking solution that provides a fast connection and the best conditions for smooth video? You need SlingLink TURBO.
Connectivity Anywhere In The Home
Your Slingbox may be located in an area that is not ideal for a wireless connection. Stereo equipment, a stereo rack or lots of wires can cause a weak or fading Wi-Fi signal. SlingLink TURBO eliminates these problems and assures a high quality connection.
Best Connection and Signal Quality
By providing a direct hard-wired connection from the internet to your Slingbox or computer, you get the best possible video and the most reliable connection for your computer.
Connect All Your Devices to the Internet
For network connections to multiple devices, such as a satellite receiver, game console, or computer, try SlingLink TURBO 4-Port. Expand your network and add up to 16 SlingLink devices (up to 64 networked devices) throughout your home.
How it Works
The SlingLink TURBO 1-Port and 4-Port are plug-and-play devices. Easily connect your Slingbox to your router -- even if they're located in separate rooms.
Just plug one SlingLink TURBO into an in-wall electrical outlet near your router. Plug the other SlingLink TURBO into an in-wall electrical outlet near your Slingbox or any other device that needs to be connected to the internet.
Top customer reviews
I've had this Sling Media Turbo kit for about 2-3 years now with the single port in the bedroom co-located with the router and the 4 port doing business at the other end of the house in the living room.
When I started, I might of had a Sling Box and a pc connected and found it quite acceptable.
However, today everything is internet connected. I have the 4 port behind the LCD TV chained together with an 8 port gig switch with 11, yes 11 (ELEVEN!) internet devices connected.
HP Multimedia PC
Sony Bravia TV (for firmware updates)
Sony Bravia Internet Link (Serving up Youtube, Amazon video and about 20 other Internet items)
Sony Blueray Disc player
Dishnetwork HD DVR
Standalone DVD Burner
Netflix Roku box
XBOX 360 in the family room (that is what the second Slinglink will take care of - getting rid of 50 ft of cable running around thru the house)
Skype desk phone
And something I cannot remember at this moment (Oh, yea! the original Slingbox Turbo!). It is cable madness even with decent cable management behind the Sony.
Performance? Out freakin' standing - I cannot recall when bandwidth was ever an issue. Looking forward to just plugging in the 4 port, adding the XBOX, PS2 and the Wii and it will JUST WORK.
Oh, did I mention the OTHER 9 wireless devices sharing the same bandwidth? Gotta love technology and gotta love this device.
Or I just need to move the deep reaches of the Tennessee mountains and leave all this tech behind....
1. There is no mention of encryption. If you're going to use it on a PC with sensitive information, this might be a concern. There are other products available with their own encryption if you're not using a VPN.
2. Make sure you can plug both units in directly to the wall, no power strips etc. The filters and cross talk can kill it.
The only hitch is I can't figure out if only one item can use the router at a time, because occaissionally I'll lose connection to the Tivo or the PS3 for no reason at all. There's nothing in any of the documentation about how the router works.
That said, I don't think that has anything to do with the SlingLink. I've tested it several times with my laptop and I always get great speeds.
UPDATE: I've had this for about seven months now. With my main router downstairs and SlingLink connecting the upstairs Tivo & PS3, I was almost never able to use the streaming capabilities of either component. I tried everything, always blaming the Tivo and PS3 for the issues.
Finally, I moved my main router upstairs, plugged in the Tivo and the PS3 and everything works like a charm. I can play online with the PS3 and my Netflix-Tivo connection gets HD-quality downloads. Now it's my downstairs computer (my main work machine) that suffers from uneven speeds, because that's the one connected using the SlingLink.
With my 20MBPS services from Fios, I get only 10 MBPS down and, sometimes 2 MBPS up via SlingLink. But sometimes my up speeds are ridiculously slow, like 300K. Unacceptable. I wish I had figured out this problem before, because I would have been returning it.
There is very little support information about these, and the downloads they have available aren't compatible with Vista. Basically, I'm forced to limp along until I can afford and better option.
EDIT: Using the Slinglink for a year so far, have discovered a slight limitation. I tried running my network from essentially the two electrical outlets furthest from each other in the apartment and had VERY spotty connectivity. Made some changes (ugly, involves a fifty foot ethernet cable...) so I could use plugs a little closer to each other, and it works fine. I don't know and cannot determine if this is an issue with the slinglink itself (i.e., signal strength) or if it is an issue with my apartment's wiring. Suspect it is a little of both based on the country I'm in. Still, it works great, streaming video all over the house without any stutters.
