Powerline adapters help you speed up your home network performance for faster TV streaming, gaming and Wi-Fi. The concept and installation is very simple. Instead of stringing miles of Ethernet cable around your home, Powerline uses your electrical cables as proto-Ethernet cables. Simply plug one adapter in near your Internet router and the other in the room where you want faster Internet access.
There are a few—but not many—discounts on Powerline adapters for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022.
