Actiontec Electronics Multi-LAN Adapter

MSRP: $129.99

Actiontec’s new Multi-LAN Network Adapter is the Swiss army knife in home networking. Easy to use, the network adapter bridges multiple networking technologies (coaxial, Ethernet, and wireless) together, creating one universal network. The handy device is equipped with one coax F-connector, four 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet ports, and 802.11n 2x2 2.4 GHz wireless.

Using the new multi-LAN network adapter, consumers can enjoy the best of both worlds: the accessibility and utter freedom of wireless networking, along with the reliability and performance of a wired MoCA™ (Multimedia over Coax) connection, utilizing existing coax in the home.

The versatile network adapter can be used in a multitude of ways. It can be a standalone wireless access point, a wireless adapter or simply a wireless extender to the existing wireless network.

The key applications are:

  1. Extend a Wi-Fi network: Consumers can use the device to extend the wireless network to all corners of the home. Plugging the adapter into an existing coax port instantly turns that port into a wireless network, so consumers can extend their home wireless network into traditional dead spots, like the basement or second floor.
  2. Add wireless support to a device: Let’s say a set top box or gaming console has an Ethernet port, but no integrated wireless support. The WCB2500M network adapter simply plugs into the set top box’s Ethernet port and the device is connected to the wireless network.
  3. Connect multiple devices: With four Ethernet ports, the adapter can bring Internet connectivity to multiple CE devices in a single location…for example, a set top box, gaming console and Blu-Ray player in the home theater

Features

Actiontec's Multi-LAN Network Adapter is powered by the proven and widely deployed MoCA-based silicon from Entropic Communications. Millions of homes in North America have an Actiontec MoCA solution. This gives consumers and service providers the peace of mind of deploying a leading, field-proven solution.

MoCA technology offers a powerful, 'no excuses' whole-home network for HD video and streaming media services, using the existing coax infrastructure found in the home. As a result, it's an ideal solution for creating a high performance home network as more than 90% of U.S. homes have coax installed, compared with less than 10% of homes with Ethernet installed.

Benefits

Today's consumers want any content on any device, anywhere and everywhere in the home. Actiontec's new adapter brings superior wireless connectivity to even the most challenging places in the home. The versatile adapter gives consumers more options and flexibility for connecting their devices to the Internet by leveraging the coax backbone already in place in their home. As a result, consumers can have a high quality Wi-Fi signal in former dead spots, for example, connecting a gaming console in the garage or streaming an HD movie on a tablet in any room of the home.

And with the Multi-LAN Network Adapter, service providers can deliver on the promise of a better whole-home wireless entertainment experience, particularly for more demanding online applications such as gaming and streaming HD movies.
