Aztech
 
Looking to extend your Wi-Fi range in your home or work around blind spots in your house? Aztech has you covered.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-m...Q/DSC_0491.JPG

Aztech's HomePlug AV Pass Through (HL110EP) allows you to plug in another electrical device into its socket so the HomePlug won't be the only device hogging all the electricity. $49 for a single unit and in a dose of double happiness, costs $90.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-j...Q/DSC_0495.JPG


The Mini HomePlug Ethernet Adapter (HL112E) will cost the same as the larger AV Pass Through version, but without the convenience of connecting any other device for power. $49 a pop or $90 for two. It allows you to use any power socket as an Ethernet port, but take note, you need one for your modem to connect to first.

The HomePlug Wireles-N Extender (HL110EW) will set you back $79, so why not get the HomePlug AV Pass Through with it for a $119 deal?

So from a home plug to a pc it uses ethernet cable ah? Yes.

Connection from main homeplug to another homeplug is thru wireless? No, through the power lines, still wired in a sense.

Different homeplugs will sync with the homeplug that is connected by ethernet cable to your router.
