Tired of the Internet dropping out? Can’t deal with unsightly cables all over the place? Get past the problem of reinforced concrete ceilings and walls blocking your WiFi by saying hello to your new tech saviour – a devolo powerline.
A whatty what? Put simply, a devolo powerline adapter amplifies your Internet connection, so you can secure that signal in any room of your home. Yep, even those WiFi black holes. It works by using your electrical wiring to carry the signal, so all you have to do is plug in an adapter at your router and another one in your room of choice. Or, should we say, rooms, as you can increase your network with up to eight of these nifty gadgets. If you’ve got a power socket there, you can transfer data there.
You can choose a device that connects via Ethernet. That’s perfect for when you need a speedy LAN connection that can handle bucketloads of data – like when streaming HD videos on your TV, or gaming on your console. There are also models that give you the choice of WiFi too – just the ticket for browsing on your tablet or smartphone. Speed is another factor to consider when picking your perfect devolo powerline adapter. Naturally, the more you pay, the faster it can operate, with options covering 500 Mbps, 1200 Mbps and 2400 Mbps. If you’re searching for those top speeds for your home network, browse devolo’s Magic collection, delivering stable, powerful Internet at ranges of up to 500 metres. Yep, that’s pretty magic.
Your devolo powerline is compatible with all the usual routers, and also with other devices in the company’s range. So you can get everything sorted with a powerline kit that has two or three adapters, and then enhance your setup with an add-on.
