Powerline Starter Kit: The TP-Link TL-PA9020p Powerline
Starter Kit is a network expansion device which helps you extend Internet access
throughout your home through your home's existing electrical wiring. The
TL-PA902p lets you enjoy higher powerline speeds, greater stability, and
improved network coverage (up to 1,000' over electrical circuit) throughout the home.
- Up to sixteen TL-PA902P devices can be connected on the same electrical
wiring system and network.
- The TL-PA9020P Kit can be used in conjunction with other AV2000, AV1200,
AV1000, AV600, AV500, & AV200 powerline adapters.
Simple Installation: The TP-Link TL-PA9020p Powerline
Starter Kit consists of two powerline adapters. First, you hook up one of the
adapters to your existing router via Ethernet and plug the adapter into a AC
wall outlet. Then, plug the second adapter into an AC wall outlet in the area
where you will be using your network device and connect the device to the
powerline adapter via Ethernet. The powerline adapters' LEDs will turn on when
the two adapters are synced and ready to use.
- Both powerline adapters need to be on the same electrical panel and same electrical circuit.
- Make sure to plug the powerline adapters directly into a wall
socket. Do not plug the adapters into a power strip, extension cord, or
- Avoid plugging the powerline adapters near appliances
that consume a lot of power - such as washers, dryers, or refrigerators.
Secure Pairing: A secure powerline network is necessary if you live in
an apartment building where multiple households share the same electrical wiring
system. To prevent leaking your network to others living on the same building,
the TP-Link TL-PA902p comes with a Pair button that helps create secure
powerline connections between the two adapters.
2x2 Mimo + Beamforming Technology: 222 MIMO establishes multiple
simultaneous connection for you to enjoy higher speed (sup to 2000 Mbps) and greater stability.
222 MIMO with Beamforming Technology also offers the benefit of improved
coverage throughout the home, particularly for previously hard to reach outlets.
- Supports IEE 1901, IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u, and IEEE 802.3ab.\
- Use 128-bit AES encryption for security
Dual Gigabit Ethernet Ports: Two Gigabit Ethernet ports
provide connection to your wired devices - such as your router, Smart TV, game
system, computer, etc. Two 6.5' Ethernet cables are provided.
Integrated Power Sockets: The integrated power socket (100V-240V~50/60Hz)
on each device means that you can still get power from the outlets used for
TL-PA9020P Kit for your other devices. Simply plug your devices into the
integrated sockets the same way you would with a normal wall outlet. The
built-in noise filter also helps to eliminate electrical signal noise that might
otherwise affect powerline transmission performance.
tpPLC Utility Software: The tpPLC Utility is a computer
software used to view and manage TP-Link powerline adapters. The tpPLC Utility
shows you a vivid and intuitive powerline network, and it also enables you to
conveniently manage an individual powerline adapter, as well as manage the whole
Note: The tpPLC Utility software is available from the
TP-Link Download Center. Its compatible with Windows and Mac.
