Sending your broadband web connection across your home’s electrical wiring, each set includes two 1-Port Network Gigabit Ethernet Adapters, capable of delivering up to 500Mbps speeds, with a power save mode to keep your electricity bills low. The new compact design should also make it easier for the HomePlugs to sit next to other power plugs in a strip outlet.

“With numerous Internet-enabled devices such as computers, game consoles and set-top boxes entering today’s homes, at times these devices require high-speed network connections that cannot be served by wireless network due to a home’s construction,” said Mohammad Meraj Hoda, vice president international, Linksys.

“Our latest Powerline kit transforms any room’s electrical outlet into a stable Internet access point for connected devices and provides the highest streaming and fast throughput speed. It helps eliminate cumbersome wiring throughout a home and serves as an economical, complimentary solution to wireless or Ethernet where Powerline might be the only option.”

Available from retailers immediately, pick up the PLEK500 kti for £89.
