PLC with Wi-Fi repeater, a round gift for this Christmas

This Christmas we are going to give away a lot of technology, and the PLC with a Wi-Fi repeater will once again become one of the star gifts in the digital home. The reason is very simple, this type of device allows us to expand the scope of our Internet connection, also enjoying of the best of both worlds, since they can work wirelessly and wired.

With a traditional PLC, you can only expand your Internet connection wired, something that, in certain situations, can be a significant problem. On the other hand, with a PLC with a Wi-Fi repeater, we can connect both by cable and by Wi-Fi. To better understand how important this differentiation is, it is enough to give an example with a realistic approach.

Imagine that you want to bring your Internet connection to the attic of your house, an area where the Wi-Fi signal from the router is not strong enough to function properly. If you use a Wi-Fi repeater, it is likely that you have it difficult to overcome all the obstacles, and to balance the distance between the router and the area you want to reach.

In that example, the ideal would be a PLC, since it works through the electrical network. Thus, to solve this problem we would only have to connect the first device in a socket near the router, and the second in the socket of the room where we want to take our Internet connection. If we use a PLC with a Wi-Fi repeater, we can connect both by cable and by Wi-Fi, but if we had used a PLC we could only pull the cable, something problematic when using our smartphone or laptop, for example.
