I have been using this to extend my Internet to my basement. I paired it with the powerline AV 500 Mbps 4 port switch and it works perfectly. It was simply plug and play and I did not have to do any other tinkering. The cool thing about it is that it turns off automatically when not used. I would highly recommend this item.

Just plug it into any wall socket, connect your ethernet cable to your router and away you go. Plug in another in any room and attach the ethernet cable to your TV, DVD player, or other device and see speeds of at least 10-40Mbs.

Product Overview

The compact PLA4201 turns your house's existing electrical wiring into a high-speed network without blocking other outlets. Just plug the PLA4201 into an electrical outlet and use an Ethernet cable to connect it to your existing broadband modem. The second PLA4201 unit will then quickly and easily convert any electrical outlet anywhere in your home into an Ethernet port for your PC, game consoles, or any other device that needs Ethernet connectivity. Compatible with all of ZyXEL's other HomePlug products; the PLA4201 is the simple way to provide high-speed connectivity throughout an entire home without the hassle of laying new wiring.

Compact
The PLA4201 is designed with a compact form-factor to ensure unimpeded access to the remaining power outlet. This makes it easy to plug in a power strip, a modem, or other devices in the same convenient location as your new network connection.

High Speed Networking
The PLA4201 comes equipped with a Fast Ethernet port, allowing network throughputs of up to 100Mbps. The HomePlug network itself can function at speeds of up to 500Mbps, ensuring uninterrupted data transfer even with the use of additional HomePlug products.

Uninterrupted Multimedia
The PLA4201 uses state of the art Quality of Service algorithms to ensure the uninterrupted viewing of video streaming services, VoIP, and other latency-sensitive applications even while the network is under heavy use.

Easy, Secure encryption
It’s easy to set up a secure connection between the PLA4201 and other HomePlug AV products within seconds. With a simple push of the encryption button, a 128-bit Data Encryption Security service is activated, providing a secure network connection for Internet access and network resource sharing without complicated setup procedures.
