Turn Your Electrical System into a Secure, High-Speed Network
With the NETGEAR® XAVB1004 Home Theater Internet Connection Kit,
gone are the days of drilling holes in your walls and running cable through your
house so you can connect to the Internet. This secure, high-speed, adapter kit
turns any standard electrical outlet in your home into a high-speed
entertainment-grade network connection.
The kit includes one Powerline XAV101 AV Ethernet Adapter, which you plug
into your router, and one Powerline XAV1004 AV Adapter with 4-Port Ethernet
Switch, which you plug into an outlet in any room where you want a network
connection. Once you plug the adapters in, within minutes you'll have a
high-speed network throughout your home.
The XAV1004 AV Adapter includes four Ethernet ports, letting you connect up
to four devices -- such as laptops, network attached storage devices, DVRs,
media streamers, Blu-Ray DVD players, or game consoles -- to your network via a
single electrical outlet.
Port-Based Quality of Service (QOS) Prioritizes your Bandwidth Usage
Because the unit features port-based Quality of Service (QoS), you can decide
which devices receive bandwidth priority, ensuring that the performance of your
highest priority device is not impeded by any spikes in your bandwidth demand.
This means that if you've prioritized your Xbox 360TM
or other game console and you're in the middle of an online game, you won't be
interrupted or delayed by another user on your network trying to download a
video or access the Internet. The system will automatically regulate bandwidth
use, prioritizing the Xbox network traffic over other traffic on the same
By simply pushing a button, without using a PC or Mac, the kit also gives you
the option of securing your network connection with 128-bit AES data encryption
for privacy and security.
Supports Speeds up to 200 Mbps
The Home Theater Internet Connection Kit supports speeds up to 200 Mbps, enough
for streaming high-definition video and MP3s, transferring large files, making
Internet calls, and more. As long as your electrical outlets in your home are
electrically connected, the XAVB1004 will typically provide home-network
coverage up to 5,000 square feet.
And to help you get the fastest speed out of your connections, NETGEAR
Pick-a-Plug technology provides red, yellow and green status LEDs that indicate
the signal strength and speed through your house so you can find the best
outlets to use
Perfect for Xbox, Playstation, TiVo, ReadyNAS and More
