Solwise extends powerline with pass-through mains option

High performance access to file storage

Solwise has rolled out a pass-through powerline ethernet adaptor which allows you to network through the mains without losing power sockets.

The NET-PL-200AV-PIGGY, as it's called, provides the same "SimpleConnect" push-button security configuration that Solwise's regular 200Mb/s HomePlug AV-based powerline units offer.

Solwise pass-through powerline adaptor

Solwise's 'Piggy': one power socket, two devices

Push the buttons on any two adaptors on your network and they - along with any other units you've already set up this way - will generate and share a 128-bit AES security key for encrypting data over the LAN.

Solwise is selling the pass-through units for around £55 - only a fiver more than the price of the regular adaptors.

Both are available now direct from Solwise and from Amazon.co.uk.
