    • Integrated power socket to allow additional devices access to power
    • Mains filter for better powerline communication performance
    • No new wires, use existing electrical wiring
    • Plug and Play, no new wires or configuration required
    • Patented power-saving mode automatically reduces power consumption by up to 75%
    • 128-bit AES encryption ensures that the network is safe simply by pressing a button on paired devices
    • Built-in QoS assures the quality of bandwidth sensitive applications such as voice, video and online games
    • Supports IGMP managed multicast IP transmission, optimizes IPTV streaming
    TP-Link's Powerline adapter TL-PA251 takes advantage of your home's existing electric wires to transfer data while transferring power. That means, with no additional wiring required, users can simply plug the TL-PA251 into existing power sockets and establish networking infrastructure in a flash. With an additional integrated power socket, it solves a common powerline problem where power sockets would be blocked and thus unusable for other devices. The TL-PA251 enables high data transfer rates of up to 200 Mbps over a home's electrical circuit with an auto power-saving mode that reduces energy consumption by up to 75%.

    Product Features

    • Extra power socket for additional devices
      With its integrated power socket, the TL-PA251 from TP-LINK provides real convenience for your home network. The integrated power socket allows an additional device or power bar to be connected to the adapter as though it were a normal wall socket. This ensures that even with the TL-PA251 plugged in, users won't need to worry about disconnecting their Internet to get power for their other devices.
    • Mains filter for better performance
      With its integrated mains filter, the TL-PA251 can optimize powerline communication performance by suppressing noise interference generated by surrounding electronic equipment that can affect network performance. That means that users won't experience a sudden speed drop when a larger power consuming device is plugged into the power socket.
    • Up to 200 Mbps speed
      With advanced HomePlug AV technology, the TL-PA251 can provide users with a stable high-speed data transfer rate of up to 200 Mbps over a home's electrical circuit. Together with the built-in Qos and powerful 128-bit AES encryption, the TL-PA251 is perfect for users using bandwidth intensive applications involving work or play.
    • Reduces power consumption by up to 75%
      The TL-PA251, with its practical product design and environment-conscious power-saving mode, will automatically switch from its regular "working mode" to "power-saving mode" that will reduce energy consumption by up to 75%.
    • Support QoS for advanced multiple-media optimization
      Quality of Service (QoS) function prioritizes the bandwidth requirements of data traffic. Users can choose which type of traffic they will use - Internet, online game, and audio or video, Voice over IP, and the QoS functions will guarantee clear, instant reproduction of that application, even when other applications are running on the network at the same time.

      WPS One Button Security

      Compatible with Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS), the TL-WPA281 Starter Kit allows you to setup your security by simply pressing the “WPS” button. This automatically establishes a WPA2 secure connection which is more secure than WEP encryptions. Not only is WPA2 faster than normal security setups, you also won’t have to remember a password!
    • Support QoS for Advanced Multiple-media Optimization

      With Quality of Service (QoS), you can determine how much bandwidth is allocated to each application. This can guarantee that each application will have some bandwidth, meaning that no single application can take down an entire Internet connection. All you have to do is choose which type of traffic you use – Internet surfing, online gaming, video streaming etc. -- and the QoS will guarantee clear, instant reproduction of that application even when with other applications are running on the network at the same time.

    Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by finally connected and so, so simple! Purchased the TP-LINK powerline from my local store. My office is in the back bedroom and I've had a dreadful time with connecting wirelessly from my current wireless Router. So, after reading reviews on how easy these are to set-up I decided to purchase! Well, what can I say, amazing and I cannot believe how easy it was to set up. Plugged the first adapter with the cable supplied into the back of the router, then took the other adapter and plugged into the socket near my PC, using the other the other cable from the adapter into port on my PC, hey presto, plus one of the adapters is wireless so I can connect my IPAD and phone wirelessly. Great product and I will be recommending to friends and family. 13 June 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great solution Bought these 5 days ago on the recommendation of my companies IT agency. Being the cheapest 200mbps adapters I could find made me a bit skeptical how well they would work....needless to say nothing to worry about. Easiest things in the world to set up, and although I have plugged one into an extension socket (which isn't recommended) the speed I get by going from my Sky router (with wireless off) through these to my Apple Time Capsule's wireless to my MacBook, over the air, is exactly the same as me hard-wiring straight into my sky router. Best money spent and saved me loads of hassle running a patch lead round the house. What I would say is I was advised by a friend that they might not so well different circuit 'rings'. These two are on the same 'ring' and the way I was told to check this is to simply flick of a fuse at a time and see if both plug sockets go off (which I did before purchasing). 04 July 2012
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Product Does exactly what its supposed to and I even set mine up in reverse as my router is next to my pc. Only down side is that the wifi signal is not very strong but if your after it in just one room you will still manage 3 bars of goodness for your efforts. Due to this I would recommend this product and would not hesitate to buy another TP-LINK product as I've got other items of theirs and if you get stuck the tech support is first rate. 04 January 2013
