|TP-LINK's TL-PA211 powerline adapter takes advantage of your home's existing electrical wires to transfer data while simultaneously transferring traditional power. That means, with no additional wiring required, users can simply plug the TL-PA211 into existing power sockets and instantly establish a networking infrastructure. With high-speed data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps, users can enjoy HD video streaming, online gaming, VoIP or any other bandwidth intensive tasks for work or play.|
Super Small Design
With its new ultra-compact housing design, TP-LINK's TL-PA211 is much smaller than most other 200Mbps Powerline Products. At just 30mm thick and with its high quality, elegant white shell, it nearly blends completely in front of any power outlet.
Up to 200Mbps, 300 Meters
With advanced HomePlug AV technology, TL-PA211 provides users with stable, high-speed data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps on a line length of up to 300 meters. Together with its built-in Qos and powerful AES encryption, the TL-PA211 is a great choice for a whole 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.
Twin Pack Design
A PLC (powerline) connection is established by transmitting data through the electrical wires between two outlets, so it requires at least two PLC adapters plugged into those two outlets to complete the network. With twin pack design, the starter kit is ideal for new users establishing their first PLC network or experienced users intent on expanding their networks.
Reduces Power Consumption Up to 65%
The TL-PA211, a new-generation Powerline Adapter, with its practical design and sophisticated Power-Saving Mode consumes less power when compared with existing Powerline Adapters. When there is no data transmission or reception occurs over a certain period of time, it will automatically switch from its regular "Working" Mode to "Power-Saving" Mode that will reduce its energy consumption by up to 65%*.
*Actual data will vary because of the network conditions and environmental factors
Pair Button for Easy Network Security
Simply by pushing the Pair button on the adapters, users can set up a hassle-free Powerline network within minutes, complete with 128-bit AES encryption for network security and data protection.
It's that simple!
1. Plug the adapter into the power outlet
2. Connect the device via the network cable to the adapter
3. Press the encryption buttons—and you're done!
Customer Reviews of TP-LINK TL-PA211KIT AV200 Mini Powerline Starter Kit + TP-LINK TL-PA211 AV200 Mini Powerline Adapter
Good while it lasted7/25/2013
I agree with what the last person posted. This product was very easy to set up and worked like a champ for 8 months, I was very happy with the purchase. All of the sudden yesterday the unit just died on me. If anybody has worked with TP-LINK in the past and had luck with their customer support let me know. My guess is they won't stand behind their product.
Good while they lasted7/22/2013
These adapters allowed me to extend network connectivity to locations in my house where the wireless signal was too weak or degraded by interference. The first one failed after 18 months and the second one after 22 months. Obviously, a powerline adapter is useless by itself. They were easy to setup and it was a good learning experience. I am disappointed in their short lifespan.
Only 2 are shipped! This needs attention10/31/2012
Same as one of the other posters here. I ordered the 3 pack and only received 2 of them. Buy.com support informed me that the manufacturers pack their own products for shipping. I don't think its a scam, however, If that is the case with the manufacturer, then the advertisement for a 3-pack needs to be pulled until logistics are worked out with the manufacturer to make sure three ship instead of two.
BEWARE, POSSIBLE SCAM10/27/2012
Supposed to be a set of 3 power line adapters for a great price. Only received 2 while order status has been updated to complete. No info on second shipment. Anybody order this and actually get all 3? Not the first issue with Buy.com like this. Originally a great deal. Not so much now
good over the short haul1/11/2012
This works great within the confines of the house. I really wanted something to work with a solar pump controller and solar charge controller that are outside and 20 feet away from the house. Doesn't find a signal on outside of the house. Every outlet in the house works but none that are not within or attached to the house outside. So I can use this with my TV without wireless internet access. Not sure what the maximum distance is supposed to be. Can't find any specs on that either.
Wonderful product to have in a big house12/13/2011
Easy to setup, it takes me just minutes to set up three of them and they all work great. Fast speed when distance is not an issue. I've them in different floors and apart from each other. It is much better than my WiFi setup before. I got it on sale here with BUY.com and shipping was fast. Will buy more next time when the sale is back.
Perfect product for my needs11/28/2011
Easy to setup and also works great to stream movies from internet to my TV.
Just what I needed.7/21/2011
Works out of the box. Spent hardly 5 minutes setting this thing up and it works like a charm. I had one connected to a device from dishnetwork which streams video and another connected to a router with multiple connections(connected to my computer and roku). Speeds are much better than wireless and no interferences.
