|SlingLink Turbo 1 Port Ethernet Kit
Want a 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 fast connection and the best conditions for smooth video streaming? You need a SlingLink™ TURBO.
The SlingLink TURBO brings network connectivity to any electrical wall outlet, making it ideal for the modern living room. There’s no need to have more cables or wires installed in your home, and you don’t need software to get it up and running. SlingLink Turbo also works interference-free with any network you might have, wired or wireless. How It Works
· Plug it in and enjoy The SlingLink TURBO is a plug and play device. Just plug one SlingLink TURBO into the wall near your router, plug in the other SlingLink TURBO wherever you have your Slingbox installed or to any other device that needs to be connected to the Internet and you’re done.
· Easily connect your Slingbox to your router—even if they’re located in separate rooms.
Best connection and signal quality. By providing a direct hard-wired connection from the Internet to your Slingbox or computer, you limit issues with your network conditions enabling the best possible video quality via our SlingStream™ video compression technology and the most reliable connection for your computer.
Connection, no matter where. Many times, a Slingbox is located in an area that is not ideal for a wireless connection. Stereo equipment, a stereo rack, lots of wires are major factors for a week or fading wireless signal. SlingLink TURBO will eliminate these problems and assures connection.
Improve the bandwidth on your wireless network. In the modern household more and more devices need network connectivity (Tivo, Game consoles, Media PCs). All of these devices share bandwidth, if connected wirelessly, and will degrade your signal. SlingLink TURBO ensures that all devices have the appropriate bandwidth.
· Compatible with any home router.
· Easily connect your Slingbox to your router—even if they’re located in separate rooms.
· Includes 2 SlingLink Turbo 1 Port Units
Customer Reviews of SlingLink Turbo 1 Port Ethernet Kit
Great Product-as expected11/29/2010
Used for sometime now and very pleased with internet connection from in home network. One has to make sure that they are directly plugged into wall outlet without any extensions or surge protectors.Recommend it.
Easy Install and Great Product5/3/2010
I have several of these in my home running to the Slingbox, PS3, XBox and they work great. Faster and much more reliable than wireless routers. They never need to be reset and no lag. Just as good as direct wire to your modem. Easy install. No software required. A 5 year old could set them up.
Worked from 2nd story to garage12/18/2009
I was a little worried that it wasn't going to work at all or was going to be slow, but I had no problems getting a fast connection in what will be my new office. I got a connection right away, and it was much faster than I would have had by using wireless; from that distance wirless just crawls with my G router. Everyone said how easy the setup is, and they are telling the truth. I highly recommend to anybody who wants to do the same thing I'm doing to give it a try.
Oh so easy9/16/2009
Worked directly out of the box. Probably easiest Ethernet connection I've ever made, the only work involved was plugging into the outlet and the router.
Internet Connection for Dummies7/6/2009
I'm pretty good with computers, but installation of routers eludes me (color me a dummy). Slinglink allowed me simple multiple site connections to the Internet without the router. This really is plug and play. I took the Slinglink out of the box and plugged it into the wall and the modem. I plugged the second one to the wall and to the main home computer and it worked. I bought a second set, and took the third one to my office and plugged it up to the extension cord and to my laptop and it worked. The fourth one can go into another room. I never even looked at the instructions. KISS!
serves the purpose4/29/2009
only thing to note is that one should not use any extension nor power surge protector between wall outlet and the sling.
Plug and play4/7/2009
The device works on even older electrical wiring where Netgear and Belkin were not able to find each other. Integrates well into systems with existing SlingLinks.
Great way to extend your network3/19/2009
This is a great way to add an ethernet outlet anywhere in your house without having to rewire your house. It worked out of the box. The only complain I have is that if you want to add other brands of HomePlug products (not Sling) you have to get the software from the Sling Site. I feel they should have included the software with the product. HomePlug technology has come a long way and if this product is a sample of what is possible with HomePlug, wireless better watch out!
Great if working, but...3/1/2009
This is a requirement if you are not plugging your Slingbox directly into your router. You must also have an available wall outlet, as it will not work if plugged into any type of extension cord. It is easy to set up but getting everything to work correctly, for me, took considerable time with customer service. They are excellent and patience, which lowered my frustration level and eventually we got everything up and running.
This is a great product and I recomend to anyone. It is a cost-effective way to expand your network with wired speeds without running wire.
Wonderful product. Does exactly what it's intended for with no technical knowledge required.
excellent with slingbox1/4/2009
Surprising easy to set-up, no configuration needed. Works get with my slingbox!
This thing was so easy, a baby could do it.
Excellent addition to my Slingbox11/23/2008
I ordered the Slinglink Turbo to replace a wireless gaming modem I was using with my Slingbox. The Turbo was easy to install and it immediately worked as advertised. The streaming rate doubled from what I got with the wireless modem.I have been using it and the Slingbox to watch Directv from Scottsdale,Az on my laptop in Tokyo.I also purchased the Slingbox from Buy.Com. I also have to add that Buy.com customer service is great! The first unit sent was defective and they immediately exchanged it without question. You can bet I will be using Buy.com again and will recommend them to all my friends and family.
Works great. Setup is very easy and there is no software that needs to be installed.
Network your entire environment8/25/2008
This is truly plug and play. Expands your wired internet and network using house wiring. Right out of the box worked flawlessly, without a noticeable drop in speed. This is the best.
Plug it right in and GO!7/29/2008
This was so easy to set up - plug both boxes in and they're UP! Nothing else to do - it's terrific. Performance is very good across the power line, and it works great with my Slingbox Solo.
Awesome Little Box7/5/2008
Truly a Plug n Play item. The little Sling Link works right out of the box. Nothing to do but connect it and start using it. I use it with my Sling Box Classic, but it should work with just about any device one wants to connect to a router port without the necessity of wires running all over the house. Perfect for renters who cannot run wires through walls and ceilings.
Was surprised how easy it was to hookup. Follow the easy instructions and in no time you are up and running. A great solution to a problem almost everyone would have - not having a router next to your TV! Great!
Cheap & Cheerful1/24/2008
An inexpensive solution to get internet access to a room without wireless or wires stapled to your walls. I find that the Sling Turbo works fine for surfing the net, albeit much slower than my computer with a direct connection. I wouldn't use for on-line gaming or other heavy content. Even loading my homepage can take 10 seconds. I use Amazon unbox and the downloads take about twice as long as normal. Very easy to set up and does what it promises. I'll be watching the reviews for next generation wireline network adapters.
I purchased this item with the slingbox pro to remotely watch my TV via any laptop with the installed software. The Ethernet Kit permits me to coonect the internet to the slingbox pro from any set top box in the house, without having to be next to the router. Works great and thier customer service is excellent!!!
I bought the Slinglink Turbo because I was not able to wire an ethernet connection close to my TV. The Slinglink works great!!! Fast and easy to install, and it doesn't slow the network down. 5 stars!!!
