MegaPlug Ethernet Adapter

MegaPlug 85 Mbps Powerline Ethernet Adapter

Review of the Actiontec MegaPlug 85 Mbps Ethernet Adapter

Listen up gamers and Internet users: The MegaPlug 85 Mbps Powerline Ethernet Adapter by Actiontec was made with you in mind. "What is it," you ask? It is a compact and portable device that allows you to transform your entire home or office into an Internet-connected station.

How does it work? Simply plug the MegaPlug into any electrical outlet and attach it to a router using an Ethernet cable. The MegaPlug then uses the electrical wiring in the walls of your house as Internet connection cables. After which, you simply plug a second MegaPlug adapter into any outlet in your house and you have instant Internet!

The MegaPlug adapter is great for gaming consoles or computers. With this adapter you can have a reliable connection and hassle-free Internet for your Xbox, Playstation, PC or any other appliance with Internet capabilities. The average Ethernet connection provides 54 Megabits per second (Mbps). But, the MegaPlug adapter cranks up the data transfer rate to 84 Mbps and can even reach speeds of 200 Mbps. It is not only simple and easy to use, but also many times faster than other Ethernet connections. .

Why MegaPlug instead of Wi-Fi? Wireless connections may be conveniently accessible anywhere in your house. But, the problems are that they also may be overly complicated to set up. If you have been frustrated by the tether of having to input lengthy WEP codes every time you connect to your wireless router, then MegaPlug is your 'Get Out Of Jail Free' card. Furthermore, the Wi-Fi signals can be intermittently interrupted by microwave frequencies, cordless phones frequencies, or other wireless devices, leading to disconnections, lag or even worse, game freeze.

Instead, the MegaPlug adapter gives the same amount of accessibility as Wi-Fi, without the long and excessively complex set up systems. In fact, no set up is needed at all.just plug in and play. Best of all, it is portable so you can use it anywhere, as long as you have access to an electrical outlet and a router. So, MegaPlug is just as convenient as Wi-Fi, yet more reliable.
