Device and ports

Powerline is a technology that uses your home's internal electrical wiring to transmit the IP (Internet Protocol) signal. With the Powerline adapter, you can send an Internet signal to every socket in your home to access the Internet.

 

The Powerline 2000 Connection Kit allows you to connect a Swisscom TV-Box or any other device with an Ethernet port wirelessly to the Internet. The Powerline 2000 Connection Kit comes with two Powerline 2000 Connection adapters. Should you wish to connect more TV-Boxes, you can purchase up to two additional Powerline 2000 Connection adapters.
