The Billion BiPac 2073N uniquely combines a high-speed wireless 'N' access point with a Homeplug AV adapter, giving the best of both worlds in one easy-to-use device - super fast homeplug networking with the new generation powerline AV technology that allows speeds of up to 200Mbps through your existing mains power supply network, and up to 300 Mbps high-speed wireless connectivity. Simply add a 2073N plug to your existing powerline network and create a mini wireless 'N' hotspot anywhere in the home. If you do not have an existing powerline network you can create one by using a Billion P104 Homeplug starter pack or a Billion 2074 Homeplug pass-through device. Great for use in larger homes, garages, outbuildings, or where the thickness of the walls prevents good wireless coverage.
The 2073N will carry your internet connection through your existing powerline network to inaccessible parts of the premises, and then relay it wirelessly to your laptop, desktop, games console, printer, camera or any wireless device in client mode. WEP, WPA, WPA2 wireless encryption can be set up in the usual way to maximise your wireless security Unique interchangeable sockets are included to enable the Homeplug to be placed away from obstructions, such as skirting boards or shelving, by rotating the unit around 180°. In addition the Homeplug adaptor will go into sleep mode when not being used, offering a saving of 60% over other adaptors.
