“At Amped Wireless, we strive to provide a complete solution for our customers’ network extending needs. With that said, we realize there are certain scenarios where Wi-Fi may not be the best solution. For example, thick walls made with metal or concrete may interfere with Wi-Fi signals. Powerline provides an ideal, plug-and-play solution for these types of situations and can be used to easily connect A/V devices or game consoles. It can also help extend a Wi-Fi signal by pairing a Powerline adapter with our award-winning High Power Wi-Fi Access Points,” said Jason Owen, president and CEO at Amped Wireless.
