You pay all that money each month for wireless Internet, but you still have to be in a certain area in order to connect. If you have a large home or want to be able to use your Internet in a basement or garage, you need something that will help you carry that signal where you actually need it. One option that works well in most situations is a wireless adapter.

A 500 Mbps wireless adapter like the Actiontec PWR511K01 HomePlug HD Powerline Wall Plug Network Adapter Kit will allow you to connect game consoles, smart TVs, Blu-ray players, PCs and any other devices that can connect to the Internet. Each kit includes two adapter units. One plugs into your router via an Ethernet cable, with its matching adapter plugging into an electrical outlet nearby. Then, just plug a second adapter into the device you are trying to connect with its matching adapter in another nearby outlet. This will allow your wireless signal to reach the other devices using the electricity in your home.

If you have multiple devices that you need to connect to the Internet, Actiontec also has a 500 Mbps Powerline Ethernet Adapter and 4-Port Hub Kit. This kit works just like the above adapter, with the exception that is has four ports instead of just one. That means you can hook up a TV, gaming console, set top box and TiVO all in the same adapter to allow all of them to connect using the wireless signal. These adapters also include lights that show how well the signal is working, helping you to see whether you will have any issues streaming videos or playing games.

A 500 Mbps wireless adapter allows you to use devices that have an Ethernet port anywhere in your home, even if you have a large area or a weak wireless signal.
