Is this powerline kit right for me?
The TP-Link TL-PA4020PKIT will give you a transfer speed of up to 500Mbps between the two plugs, and contains everything that you will need in the box. This powerline kit is simple to use. Its plug and play feature means you can quickly plug the powerline adapters in, connect one to your router and the other to your networked device, and setup is complete. The twin network ports will allow you to connect your networked devices directly to your router for internet access. The pass-through technology allows you to power an additional device by plugging it into the rear of the powerline plug, meaning that you do not lose a mains socket when using this kit.

How could I use this powerline kit?
The powerline kit is designed for one plug to connect directly to your network router while the other is connected to a networked device. Compatible network devices include laptops, PCs, gaming consoles, smart TVs, network hard drives, media players and CCTV kits. This powerline kit allows your chosen device to connect directly to the internet without using long network cables.

How does powerline work?
Powerline technology transfer data using the electrical wiring of the household. This allows for a single powerline plug to be connected directly to a router and plugged into a mains socket. This plug will then communicate to the other plugs connected to the same electricity supply. This kit comes with a single powerline plug that connects to a router and another plug that will connect to your networked device and allow it to communicate to your router over the mains. The powerline adapters will communicate with each other when connected directly to mains sockets on the same fuse board. Additional receivers, including receivers that give a wireless signal, are sold separately and can connect extra devices to your router. For the best results, use any powerline receiver capable of sending up to 500Mbps.

Am I able to use these in conjunction with a surge protection extension cord? i.e plug the extension lead into the TP-Link

Asked by: BenW
Typically these would be plugged directly into the wall socket with the extension cord pluged into the pass through socket.
