Actiontec PWR500 - 500Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit Review @MissingRemote - Actiontec PWR500 - 500Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit Review @MissingRemote
Wed, Aug 29 2012 | 11:52AM | Filed under: Networking| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Powerline networking has a reputation for promising capable hardwired networking solutions, but historically often fell short when it came to delivery. Having tried a few iterations of the alternative-to-Ethernet over power wires in the past, in my personal experience this reputation has also proved well deserved. Of course with each new generation, the technology evolves and is therefore worth another look. To achieve that goal, Actiontec provided their newest Powerline Network Adapter kit, the PWR500. Supporting up to 500Mbps between nodes, and exposing 100Mbps Ethernet to devices, it should be more than a match for even the most demanding file streaming requirements. Combining this with a price of around $50 for two adapters, it could be the perfect way to extend your media to those hard to reach places around your house or apartment. *"
