1200Mbps AV2 1200 Wi-Fi Powerline Adapter Kit

- Powerful 1200Mbps HomePlug® AV2 powerline connectivity with 1200Mbps dual-band AC1200 Wi-Fi range extender.
- Flexible connectivity for multiple devices via powerline, three Ethernet LAN ports and Wi-Fi.
- Plug-and-play setup with easy Wi-Fi network cloning.
- Encrypted pairing blocks unauthorized devices for protected security.
- Integrated power socket ensures no power outlet is wasted.

Extend fast Wi-Fi via any power socket!

Your PL-AC56 Kit is the easy, instant way to extend your wired and Wi-Fi networks to hard-to-reach areas of your home. PL-AC56 Kit uses 1200Mbps HomePlug® AV2 powerline technology integrated with 1200Mbps AC1200 Wi-Fi to extend fast wired and wireless networking anywhere in your home via existing electrical wiring. Simply plug it in and enjoy fast, stable connections for all your devices - with no cable mess!

 

Powerful Wi-Fi and PLC integration!

PL-AC56 Kit can offer you both Wi-Fi and powerline connectivity with up to 1200Mbps wired and wireless speeds. Its high-throughput AC1200 Wi-Fi is ideal for 4K UHD streaming!

Instant plug-and-play setup!

Setting up PL-AC56 Kit is incredibly easy! Simply plug it in and you can enjoy the internet via Ethernet cables or Wi-Fi.

Step1:
Connect the smaller adapter to your router with a network cable, and then plug it into a power outlet.
Step2:
Plug the larger (Wi-Fi) adapter into any power outlet, and then connect your devices via Wi-Fi or the network ports on the adapter - and that's it!

Encrypted pairing button

The Pair buttons on both adapters set up an encrypted connection between the adapters, and prevent anyone connecting an unauthorized adapter to your powerline network (you can always add your own adapters, of course!). This is perfect if you live somewhere with shared electrical wiring, such as an apartment - your neighbors won't be able to accidentally connect to your network.

Power-saving standby

Unlike traditional adapters that are always fully powered, PL-AC56 Kit has a clever standby mode that detects whether connected devices have been switched off or are inactive. If that happens, PL-AC56 goes into a low-power mode that reduces power consumption by 80%1. This helps you save money on power bills, and is also kinder to the environment.

Noise filter

Some powerline adapters can be affected by electrical interference from household appliances. PL-AC56 Kit uses clever noise filtering technology to ensure smooth and stable performance.

Works well, but can be difficult to set up

This replaced a similar NetComm NP206 powerline adapter which failed after 10+ years. I needed the AC Pass-through, and the Wireless hotspot functions, which eliminated other adapters. Initially, plugging in the adapter to my modem caused my internet download speed to drop from 90Mbps to 10Mbps, and much despair, hours of consultation with my ISP provider, until I changed the wireless channel on the modem from channel 6, to Auto. This solution was not mentioned anywhere. The Asus website, www.ap.asus.com, doesn't function, and was thus useless. After that, I could easily set up the adapters, it works well, though interferes with AM radio...view more

Network Powerline

Recommend researching your use case throughly before purchasing as in my case this unit is great but only on the same electrical ring network of your house.
This means the ring network from your consumer unit and not encompassing the consumer unit as such.

hope this helps.

Good purchase but too large.

Unfortunately the unit is so large it covers both plunges on the power socket. We needed to then purchase an addition angled plug to enable us to make use of both power outlets. Keep this in mind!

Fast but chunky

Super fast connection, even though it's quite chunky and fat. Don't expect to be able to use the other power socket on your wall if the sockets are on top of each other or side by side.
