61vCU5CWpEL._SL1500_TP-Link has  unveiled the new TL-WPA8630 KIT AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender, AV1200 Powerline Edition. This product is the world’s first AC1200 range extender that also features advanced HomePlug AV2 powerline technology. Thanks to its powerful signal, offering AC1200 Wi-Fi* and wired speeds of up to 1200Mbps**, you can enjoy online gaming or stream HD video from just about anywhere in the home, without interruption.

The TL-WPA8630 KIT connects to your router via an Ethernet connection and establishes a wired powerline network over your home’s existing electrical wiring using HomePlug AV2 Technology. From there, a high-speed AC1200 Wi-Fi signal is made readily available to any area of your home, from the depths of the basement to the far reaches of your attic. Unlike traditional range extenders, which require placement within your router’s coverage zone, the TL-WPA8630 KIT eschews these limitations to extend Ethernet and Wi-Fi coverage through traditional internet barriers like cement walls and floors.

It’s also incredibly easy to set-up. Simply plug one powerline adapter into the wall and connect it to your router, while placing the second adapter in a distant room where stronger Wi-Fi is desired for a seamless wired or wireless internet connection. The units are enabled with Powerline MIMO and Beamforming technology, which increases the strength and speed of the signal to outlets in every corner of the home, further strengthening coverage. You can also use its three Gigabit Ethernet ports to simultaneously run multiple high-speed wired connections for devices like smart TVs, PCs and game consoles.

The TL-WPA8630 KIT powerline adapter is compatible with all routers and can connect up to 16 different adapters on one network, providing comprehensive wired and wireless coverage throughout the home.
