How Powerline Ethernet Adapters Work

While the most popular of these technologies is EoP (Ethernet over Power), we also offer two powerline adapters with PoE (Power over Ethernet) to help you expand your home network while powering PoE devices.  These adapters are the GPL-2000PoE and GPL-1200PoE.

Power over Ethernet is a method of delivering low-voltage electrical power to devices using an Ethernet cable, and is commonly used in VoIP telephones and security cameras.

These innovative adapters allow the easiest and most secure connection of these types of devices.  Combining power and connectivity dramatically simplifies the setup of home security systems, office VoIP phone networks, and all other PoE devices that require an internet connection.

A powerline network adapter is a small device that plugs into your home’s power cables through a standard wall outlet, and then plugs directly into your home network device, such as a modem or modem+router combination.

Powerline is simply an Ethernet Extender. Your Ethernet cord goes from your router to your device (PC, Gaming Console, Set Top Box, etc.), with two adapters plugged into your home’s existing copper wiring. This allows you to get the benefits of a stable, reliable, and fast wired connection in any room with a power outlet – with no need to install a new Ethernet jack or run long Ethernet cables throughout your home.

The most advanced standard in Powerline Technology is G.hn (Gigabit Home Networking). NexusLink offers both, Wave 1 and Wave 2 technologies. Wave 2 offers increased noise mitigation and faster speeds for a better overall experience. Whether you choose a G.hn powerline adapter for gaming, or you just want a more stable connection for streaming video or working from home, NexusLInk has the technology to fit your need.

NexusLink also offers G.hn powerline adapters that include a built-in WiFi device, which allows you to turn any power outlet into a wireless access point. This is an ideal solution if you need wireless connectivity in a far-away or remote room in your home, and your home WiFi router simply cannot reach the room to provide a steady signal.


In addition, we offer products like our Gaming Bridge, which is specially-designed to offer a private, 5GHz point-to-point (P2P) LAN connection between your home router and your gaming devices, ensuring consistent latency, fast download times, and maximum performance when gaming, streaming, and more. Unlike omni-directional, highly congested standard wireless, this results in a private and dedicated wireless connection.

Why NexusLink?

Home wireless remains wildly unpredictable. It can buffer your movies, lag-death your online games, and freeze your video calls. NexusLink creates new, high-tech solutions to provide a wide variety of alternatives to Ethernet. From using the wires in your home today- to private point-to-point wireless, NexusLink will help you solve these problems. You can regain quality binge-watching, compete like pro gamers, and enjoy smooth video conferencing. NexusLink has you covered.

Why Choose an Ethernet Alternative?

Ethernet is a great option if your home is wired for it, or your router is located near the devices you want to use with a wired connection, but that’s not always the case. Your home configuration or unique situation may prevent you from using a conventional wired Ethernet connection.

If traditional Ethernet wiring isn’t available to you, powerline network adapters from NexusLink are one of the best options available to you. Here are just a few of the benefits of choosing our powerline products:

Our Amazon Customer Reviews

A must have for streaming 4K to multiple TVs at home
A reasonable question is, why can't I just go with WIFI. We actually have both the Google WIFI with 3 mesh nodes and the Apple Airport Extreme running, both connected to FIOS. For whatever reason, they just don't work well enough, particularly if we're streaming 4K in multiple locations. -TN

50% Speed Improvement With Solid Connection
I was excited to see how they would work and upon my very first attempt plugging them in I was grinning. You know when you first do a speed test and it jumps way up there to the maximum speed that you actually pay for? Well yeah, it did that, something I haven't seen in a long time with my wifi connection. -D. Witt

Easy to install and worked well with no problems
I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking for a powerline adapter, especially for creating Ethernet connections in areas of the house with weak Wi-Fi or for desktop PCs and electronics that do not have Wi-Fi. -Steven H. Kong

Excellent hardware for larger and/or older homes (see details). Highly recommended
Chariot benchmarking runs show sustained transfer rates of between 320 and 800Mbps, which is phenomenal. The thing that's most shocking, is that the G.hn was able to get to an added-on part of the house, which while on the same power service, is on a different electrical panel. Powerline networking couldn't do that before. Amazing. Highly recommended. -C. Okamuro
