Expand Your Home Network Instantly Without Running Wires
Wireless networks can beuseful, but they may not be as secure or as reliable as you'd like. If you're after a high-speed, uninterrupted connection in order to stream movies or to play games online, you can't beat a wired network. However, connecting your entire house with cables can be a time-consuming and expensive task
With Powerline technology you can create high-speed Internet connections anywhere in your home without running wires between rooms. By running the connection through a plug socket and using your home's existing electrical wiring to create a network, you can build a high-speed home network instantly, that you have the flexibility to move from plug to plug as you need.
Set-Up is as Easy as Plugging in a Lamp
Connect one adapter into your router, and then plug it into a wall socket. Plug the other adapter into a socket in any room where you want a high-speed connection. The adapters will then tranfer data over your home's existing electrical wiring. It's that simple.
Faster and More Reliable than Wireless
With speed up to 200 megabits per second*, the WD Livewire Powerline AV network kit is fast enough for every computer in your home to share your broadband Internet connection and still have the velocity you need to smoothly stream 1080p full-HD video to your TV.
*200 Mb/s is the ideal physical data rate. Network traffic, interference, building materials, and other conditions lower actual data throughput rate.
More Ports for More Devices
The WD Livewire adapter kit offers 4 ports on both devices in the pair. This allows you to plug in your router and up to 7 Internet-connected devices such as computers, TVs, game consoles, media players, and network storage drives. With today's increasing-connected homes, this allows you to cut back on wiring and clutter, without you having to unplug devices when you want to use the next one.
Encrypted for Security
The data transfer between the WD Livewire adapters is protected with the same 128-bit encryption that you trust for your online banking and shopping. And because the encryption is automatic, there's no need to remember a password.
