Do you have places that even the most powerful wireless signals cannot reach? Air Live's HP-3000E Power Line Adapter Kit could be your solution.

The Adapters

 

The two HP-3000E adapters that arrive with your Air Live kit are again typical of the standard power line adapters. They are boxy, have a single RJ-45 port on the bottom, two prongs for a standard AC outlet and on the front they have lights to indicate various operations.

 

Where the Air Live differs is that it also provides a security button on the left side of the RJ-45 port for a quick security configuration. We will cover this shortly in the setup and installation section.

The lights on the front provide basic information like Power, Link and Ethernet connection status.

The RJ-45 port is in the center of the bottom side with the Reset and Security buttons on either side.

On the back we find information that will be important to the setup. There is a password written here that you will need to copy down when you get ready to connect.

One thing to note here, while the TRENDNet TPL-302E2K stated plainly not to use their kit with a surge protector (and indeed it would not work when plugged into one), I found that the Air Live would work connected to a standard surge protector, making it a little more flexible to use.

 

The specifications look good on paper, at least.
