The Best Powerline Networking Adapter
Updated Dec 11, 2022
If a traditional Wi-Fi or mesh network isn’t cutting it in your larger home, and you don’t want to (or can’t) drill holes and snake Ethernet cable through your walls, you’ve got more options: powerline networking and MoCA (multimedia over coaxial alliance). Powerline networking uses your home’s electrical wiring to share your internet connection, bypassing Wi-Fi and its limitations, while MoCA works similarly over the cable TV wiring in your home. After spending more than 48 hours testing 13 kits, we’ve found TP-Link’s TL-PA9020P to be the best powerline networking kit for most people.
