Overview: The Channel Master CM-6104 Internet-to-TV
Powerline Ethernet Switch Kit is an easy-to-install solution providing an
Internet connection to any of the power outlets in your home. Many new TV's,
SAT/Cable boxes, Blu-ray players, and game consoles are Internet compatible and
need to be connected to the Internet. After getting these products home you may
find it difficult to connect them to the internet, because you may not have an
Ethernet jack by the television or other audio/video component. Most homes are
prewired with power outlets in every room, so Channel Master's Internet to TV
Powerline Ethernet Switch is the perfect solution. The Channel Master CM-6104
Kit includes one Powerline Ethernet Switch (CM-6104) and one Powerline
Ethernet Adapter (CM-6100).
Installation: The Channel Master CM-6104 Internet-to-TV
Powerline Ethernet Switch Kit has been designed to
allow the home network or internet signal to ride along the same powerline as
your cable television or terrestrial antenna signals with no interference. This
is the most reliable solution without installing new wires and best of all its
affordable & easy to install. Simply
connect one Powerline Adapter (CM-6100) to your modem and powerline network, then connect
the second 4-Port Powerline Ethernet Switch (CM-6104) to your power outlet in another room
and your Internet-ready TV, plus other Internet enabled components.
