Solwise Homeplug AV network kit
This month, PCW has joined forces with networking hardware specialist Solwise to offer three fantastic Homeplug networking kits.
Each kit includes not only Homeplug AV networking, which can link devices using the mains cables in your home at up to 200Mbits/sec, but also a Draft N wireless router, capable of providing Wifi coverage at speeds of up to 300Mbits/secs.
The Solwise PL-200AV11NRT is a high-specification 802.11n Access Point capable of providing Wifi coverage at up to 300Mbits/sec, and it also has Homeplug AV built in, which can link devices at up to 200Mbits/sec using the mains electricity wiring in your home.
With four Lan and one Wan ports, routing facilities and Draft 11n Wifi, its a powerful device that can help make sure you have high-speed internet access in every corner of your home.
One of the latest products from Solwise, the PLA-AV-3E-PIGGY6, better known as the Piggy6, is a filtered six-way power strip with three Homeplug AV Ethernet ports built into it. Its the ideal device to put behind your AV equipment, providing it with a clean power feed, as well as providing links to your network for games consoles, media streamers and satellite receivers. And thanks to Homeplug AVs speed, it will even cope with streaming high-definition video.
The PL-200AV-Push is a single-port 200Mbits/sec adapter plug. This handy little device converts any mains socket in your home into an Ethernet network outlet. Our first prize winner will also receive the Piggy version of the PL-200AV, which has a passthrough mains socket on the back, so you can still plug a power lead into the socket as well.
All the Homeplug AV devices include 128-bit AES security, with push-button configuration, so your data remains secure, and its incredibly easy to set up. The first prize in this competition is a router, a six-way Homeplug AV power strip, Homeplug AV adapter, and a Homeplug Piggy adapter.
Two runners-up will each receive a router, a six-way power strip, and a standard Homeplug AV adapter. For your chance to win these prizes, answer the question on this page. The Solwise competition opens on 19 February and closes on 20 March 2009.
