[CES 2011] In the recent years, living-room appliances such as game consoles, set top boxes and televisions have become connected in a major way. Because they are typically located far from the home office or other locations where the broadband modem and routers are, it can be a pain to get them on the network. And to make things worse, some devices aren’t WiFi-enabled yet. That’s where Powerline Ethernet saves the day: it is easy to setup (plug the device, that’s it) and can extend a low-latency Ethernet network in minutes.
The Powerline AV 200 Nano is not only significantly smaller than other Powerline Ethernet products, it can also test the electrical outlet and tell you if the network connection is good, or if you should try another outlet. Finally, when the data traffic is low, it puts itself in a sleep mode to save power.
