TP-Link offer enhanced powerline player experience with their AV1200 gigabit with Wi-Fi for faster PS4 & XO gaming

To play online without issue, or impact the Wi-Fi experience for others in the household, many gamers opt for a wired connection. Introducing the AV1200 Three Port Gigabit Passthrough Powerline AC Wi-Fi 



The latency is lower, which means reactions in multiplayer gaming is faster and it’s ultimately more stable. But, for many who play in rooms located far from the router, Wi-Fi is the only option.

A Wi-Fi connection may suffer from interference, which can cause higher ping rates that make a game unplayable and impact on the subscription services offered by Playstation Network and Xbox Live Gold.

To allow gamers to capitalise on a wired connection TP-LINK, the world's leading networking solutions brand¹, has unveiled its fastest powerline adapter yet – the AV1200 Three Port Gigabit Passthrough Powerline AC Wi-Fi KIT.

This plug and play powerline adapter safely uses a home’s electricity network to deliver faster, more stable wired and wireless connections that optimise and improve multi-screen enjoyment.

The powerline kit provides powerful dual band AC1200 Wi-Fi via any electrical socket to rid homes of wireless dead zones. The high-speed AC 5GHz band is up to three times faster enabling entertainment-hungry households to game online and stream content without experiencing lag or buffering.

It’s 2 x 2 MIMO technology is ideal for streaming 4K, large file transfers, and other bandwidth-intensive activities. It also comes with tpPLC Utility software so users can view and manage their powerline network from a smartphone or tablet.

Two powerline adapters are required to create a network. One must connect directly to the router and the second, or multiple adapters, can be placed anywhere on the same electrical circuit to deliver uncompromised connectivity.

A powerline network is particularly suited to homes with thick walls, multiple floors or converted basements that block the Wi-Fi signal from the router.

A TP-LINK powerline connects in minutes and does not require specialist knowledge.

Selling for £124.99 the AV 1200 is available from Dixons, Maplin, Amazon and many electronics retailers.
