Naturally, you can also connect flat screens and other network-capable devices directly (without rerouting) via household electrical wiring to an existing WLAN network.
For all devices with in-built WiFi, this works without out any problem provided the signal strength of the wireless network at the place of installation is sufficient.
But what if your device isn’t WiFi-ready? Providing that it has at least a network connection, the
Hama 2in1 WLAN adapter
could be the right solution for you.
This product enables you to equip older devices with WLAN – simply connect the WLAN adapter to the network socket of the television using a LAN cable and you’ll be able to go online.
Encryption and integration into your existing WiFi system is achieved either at the press of a button using WPS (WiFi Protection Setup) or by using the configuration tool on the computer.
Powerline LAN "Wireless"
Especially in living rooms, visible cables are an eyesore. Replacing at least some of these with wireless network technology such as Hama’s new Powerline “Wireless” adapter can make things look much neater.
This system also uses electrical wires to transfer data. However, devices can be connected to the Powerline “Wireless” adapter either by cable (using three internal LAN ports) or wirelessly, via WLAN.
In this way you can enjoy the best of both worlds: Powerline LAN guarantees fast and consistent data transfer rates even in far-away rooms of the house, while WLAN provides a high degree of flexibility.
