What is Ethernet over Power?

As we become more and more dependent on a good Internet connection in our homes to run a multitude of apps and devices, we often discover certain “dead spots” in our home where Internet connectivity is weak at best. For those areas, a hardwired access point connected to your router is the best solution, far better than a wireless extension that tries to amplify and extend an already weak signal. But what if you can’t run Ethernet cables from your router to the “dead spot”? In those cases, we should consider an Ethernet over power solution that uses your existing electrical cables to transmit Wi-Fi. With this solution, you plug in the Powerline device into a wall outlet near the router and then connect the Powerline device to your router with an Ethernet cable. Be sure to plug the device directly into the wall outlet and not into a surge protector, which will degrade the signal transmission. Plug in the other half of the Powerline device into an electrical outlet near your “Dead spot” device. Then connect the device to the Powerline device using an Ethernet cable. Using your existing electrical wires, your device in the “dead spot” is now connected directly to your router. Please visit our new website at www.wbsouth.com.
