Not a technically type? Don´t worry, the set up is insanely easy. You just plug one adapter into the power socket which is close to your router (or modem) and connect them with Ethernet cable (in the box) and then plug the second adapter into the power socket near the device such as TV, laptop, PC or console.
And of course, you also need to connect these devices to the second unit with another Ethernet cable.
Press pair to secure the connection with 128-Bit AES encryption. Done. Now your data speeds should be close to what you can get if you connect the TV (or another device) directly to your router.
