ZyXEL brings true plug-and-play gigabit network to the home by introducing the PLA5256, a 1000 Mbps powerline adapter with a pass-through socket and two Ethernet ports – the first 1000 Mbps powerline on the market with a friendly design which enables multi-device connection and makes the best use of the limited power sockets at home.

ZyXEL is a global leader in broadband networking technology, providing a comprehensive portfolio of wired and wireless network solutions for telecommunications service providers, small- to medium-sized businesses and home users. Tailored for places where wired or Wi-Fi connections can hardly reach, and users who look for high-speed network connections for multiple devices across rooms or floors, ZyXEL PLA5256 is a Homeplug AV2 SISO compliant powerline adapter capable of delivering up to 1000 Mbps of data transfer rates. 

Plug-and-play is made possible as all it takes is to plug a set of two adapters into power sockets and wire network devices to the adapters - no configuration needed. With two Ethernet ports and a pass-through socket on the front, each PLA5256 adapter connects more than just one device and allows other electrical device to plug into it, removing the need to choose between your games console or set top box, perfect for homes with limited sockets and those who need to keep their options open.  

Once connected, the PLA5256 offers a Quality-of-Service (QoS) function which automatically allocates bandwidth based on what device needs it most, giving the best possible performance for all connected devices. Network protection is also in place with the built-in 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) that can be setup in one touch by pressing the encrypt button on the adapter. It keeps the snooping eyes out and protects your personal local network from users outside of it.
