Your PL-AC56 Kit is the easy, instant way to extend your wired and Wi-Fi networks to hard-to-reach areas of your home. PL-AC56 Kit uses 1200Mbps HomePlug® AV2 powerline technology integrated with 1200Mbps AC1200 Wi-Fi to extend fast wired and wireless networking anywhere in your home via existing electrical wiring. Simply plug it in and enjoy fast, stable connections for all your devices – with no cable mess!
PL-AC56 Kit can offer you both Wi-Fi and powerline connectivity with up to 1200Mbps wired and wireless speeds. Its high-throughput AC1200 Wi-Fi is ideal for 4K UHD streaming!
Setting up PL-AC56 Kit is incredibly easy! Simply plug it in and you can enjoy the internet via Ethernet cables or Wi-Fi.
Connect the smaller adapter to your router with a network cable, and then plug it into a power outlet.
Plug the larger (Wi-Fi) adapter into any power outlet, and then connect your devices via Wi-Fi or the network ports on the adapter — and that’s it!
By pressing the Clone button on the Wi-Fi adapter and the WPS button on your router, it only takes a few minutes to set up your Wi-Fi. Once it’s done you can enjoy seamless networking across your home or office — there’s no need to configure the adapter again!
The Pair buttons on both adapters set up an encrypted connection between the adapters, and prevent anyone connecting an unauthorized adapter to your powerline network (you can always add your own adapters, of course!). This is perfect if you live somewhere with shared electrical wiring, such as an apartment — your neighbors won’t be able to accidentally connect to your network.
Unlike traditional adapters that are always fully powered, PL-AC56 Kit has a clever standby mode that detects whether connected devices have been switched off or are inactive. If that happens, PL-AC56 goes into a low-power mode that reduces power consumption by 80%1. This helps you save money on power bills, and is also kinder to the environment.
Some powerline adapters can be affected by electrical interference from household appliances. PL-AC56 Kit uses clever noise filtering technology to ensure smooth and stable performance.
Remember to always keep your device’s firmware up to date so you can benefit from the very latest service and security enhancements — and get exciting new features! Learn more about updating new firmware.
