Meet your new best friends, the Powerline Ethernet and MoCA Adapters.

Powerline and MoCA (Multimedia over Coaxial Alliance) adapters extend your home network by using your home's electrical or COAX wiring which gives you a way to get a high-speed, wired, internet connections in distant parts of your house.

Powerline Adapters

A powerline adapter connects your computer to the internet by using your home’s electrical wiring. With a powerline adapter, you can truly get the best of both worlds. A powerline adapter is sometimes called a powerline-Ethernet adapter because it still uses an Ethernet cable, just in a more limited capacity. Think of it as a hassle-free version of Ethernet.

An Ethernet cable connects your device straight to your home router. Ethernet is great because a cabled connection is typically faster than wireless. But if your device is located far from your router, then you’ll have to string Ethernet cables through your home, which isn’t always easy to do. And cables aren’t exactly the prettiest things to be strewn across the floor. Not only are they unsightly, but they can also be a tripping hazard. You could always run Ethernet cables through your walls, but it costs a lot of money (or time if you’re a do-it-yourselfer) and might not always be feasible in a home with a complex layout or if you rent.

Not only that, but why string Ethernet cables through your walls when there’s already electrical wiring in there? That’s the whole purpose of a powerline adapter. It connects your device to your home router using the electrical wiring that’s already built into your home.


MoCA Adapters

A MoCA adapter is designed to give you better WiFi coverage and performance throughout your home. And having a MoCA router makes this that much easier. The adapter is a wired network solution. Because it is wired, it creates a reliable, direct connection that eliminates any dead spots in your home.

MoCA adapters don’t override your wireless Internet. By using MoCA adapters, you still get to enjoy the benefits of WiFi, but better because they enhance your WiFi.

MoCA adapters support and enhance your WiFi network in a few ways:

  • Support faster speeds
  • Create a stronger, always reliable connection
  • Reduced latency and lag for better streaming
  • Create a solid, reliable connection for better video calls with friends, family or for working from home

Do all of this with minimal wires and a compact size to reduce clutter and expensive installation.
