NetGear Powerline Adapter

In case you missed it, Ethernet over power lines is a reality. The problem comes when you need a network connection and a surge suppressor. You see, plugging the adapter into a surge suppressor basically removes the Ethernet functionality.

To the rescue comes Netgear. This innovative tech company has released the HDX8111 Powerline HD Plus Ethernet Adapter Kit. Check out the specs:

HD-streaming Ethernet from any electrical outlet!
Turn any electrical outlet into an HD-streaming Ethernet connection ideal for IPTV and video streaming applications. NETGEAR’s Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter Kit (HDXB111) is an ideal solution for connecting PCs, DVRs, set-top boxes, and game consoles to the home network. Simply plug one HDXB111 into an AC outlet near your modem, gateway, or router and the other HDXB111 near the device you wish to network and instantly you can have HD streaming throughout your home. Nothing could be easier than using NETGEAR’s plug-and-play adapters and your existing electrical wiring!

Latest DS2 chipsets and built-in Quality of Service (QoS) ensure fast, high-quality, consistent performance for real-time HD video and audio streaming for a digital media adapter (DMA) like the NETGEAR Digital Entertainer HD (EVA8000), or for IPTV, Internet gaming, and VoIP calls. With data rates up to 200 Mbps†, large file transfers to networked storage devices like NETGEAR’s Storage Central Turbo (SC101T) can be up to 12 times faster than previous Powerline networking products, all with encrypted security.


  • Up to 200 Mbps† data rates for IPTV, video streaming, and other high-bandwidth applications
  • Pass-thru female power plug to provide noise-filtered power outlet
  • Built-in Quality of Service (QoS) for video, voice, and data

  • Predictable and dependable network speeds
  • Latest DS2 analog and digital chipsets for optimum performance, powerline-friendly — easily coexists with NETGEAR’s Wall-plugged or HomePlug compatible products¹
  • Compatible with HDX101 Powerline HD adapters
