Deal Details

This is a Homeplug AV 200Mbps network adapter. Logitech model LA700e. The adapter provides power to your POE (power over ethernet) 802.3af compliant devices (7W max load). Just to be clear, this device supports both ethernet over power (also known as Homeplug or Powerline) and it also supports power over Ethernet (802.3af POE).

Additionally, the device is weather resistant when wall-mounted vertically and with the use of a flat cat5 or cat6 Ethernet cable. If you just do a search for flat cat5 you will find several cables in any length you may need. If you don't care about weather resistance, a plain round Ethernet cable will work although the door will not install unless a flat cable is used. Used indoors, the adapter works fine without the door installed. The adapter allows you to leverage the existing electrical wiring in your home to install an Ethernet port anywhere you have a power outlet.

Logitech sells these adapter in their parts store for only $10 each with free shipping on any order over $20. P/N 993-000495

These adapters originally ship with a Logitech Alert outdoor security camera and so they could certainly be used with any Logitech alert camera. However, since the device conforms to the 802.3af standard, it also can be used with many various PoE devices like IP Cameras, VoIP phones, Wireless Access Points, etc.

For anyone not familiar with homeplug technology, I should mention that you will need a minimum of 2 Homeplug AV adapters on your network. One adapter will bridge your switch/router to your electrical wiring. Each additional adapter can then be used to add a 200Mbps ethernet port wherever you may need one. For homes and offices with multiple breaker panels, the Homeplug adapters do need to be on the same panel.

These adapters may or may not be compatible with other brands of Homeplug AV adapters. I am currently using 10 of these adapters in my house and they work great.

If you search eBay for homeplug PoE, you will find there are very few devices on the market which support both Homeplug AV and PoE. A company called "Level One" makes one called the "PLI-3110" which sells for around $150 for just one adapter and theirs is not weather resistant.

I'm fairly certain the price is an error but it has been this way for a long time. I have purchased several of these and recommended them to friends who have also purchased large quantities. I have all I need now so get them while you can!

Even though its shows as OOS... I was able to place the order and got a confirmation email

Thanks OP. For those on the fence, these do appear to provide HomePlug ethernet functionality. Plug one into your router, plug another into whatever ethernet device you want to add to the network.

PDF showing this part (it is part 2 on the PDF). The "Reading the Diagnostic LEDs" area shows that it is interchangeable as a "network adapter":

Accessories page for the system showing that this is the Power Supply:

I have 10 of these. They ARE homeplug adapters. I have one connect to my router. the other 9 are all over my house. They all work.
Some of them are providing power to IP cameras I have. I have one connected to a POE IP-phone. The rest are just connected to computers and other non-poe devices. For example, I have a AT&T 3G microcell connected to one and it works great.

To open, remove two screws on bottom. If you don't intend to use outdoors/weather-type conditions, you can remove the door and cut the rubber stopper to avoid having to buy fancy cables. Alternatively, if you can find a triangle driver, you can pop the rubber stoppers, disassemble the device, and reassemble it with the ethernet cord in.

If you opt to use these outdoors, use flat cables and reinstall the door. a little silicone around the opening for the network cable wouldn't be a bad idea, just to make sure it is sealed.
Install on a wall, mounted vertically w/ the Logitech logo right-side-up. Like in photo 1 on the first post.

How is this different from the Logitech Powerline adapter? Which one is better for Ethernet over power?

So, if I have a weak wireless signal to my HTPC, I can use this to get a wired signal? And if I understand correctly, I need two of these? One plugged into my router, and the other providing the wired connection to the HTPC?

Your link takes you to a product that says it's a power supply, not an adapter.

The OP is saying these are powerline/homeplug adapters that do PoE and are sold with other Logitech products as power adapters. However, what I get from the OP is that these will function solely as powerline ethernet adapters. If so, a powerline networking setup for $20 can't be beat. I'll give two a try, as my old Slinglinks aren't performing that well.

Since this is use as power adapters, does it provide more power than normal ethernet cable? If you plug this into your existing network adapter will it damage the network adapter because of too much power?

I assume can only be use with special Power over Ethernet device that expect this much power from the cable?

just curious what your throughput speeds are copying large files? I recently picked up a netgear powerline 200mbps but haven't openend it yet. I might be willing to take a chance to put on my htpc, but was wondering the performance (I realize none really give you 200mpbs..)

I am guessing these will work for those of us who had a slinbox installed by dishnetwork using power over the ethernet adapters. Get extra adapters to put a port anywhere.

I'm not too up on Homelink. If I connect one of these to my router, can it support multiple remote adapters scattered around the house, or is it a one-to-one relationship (that is, I would need one adapter connected to the router for each remote adapter)?

The link looks legit to me (but I'm not sure) ----- I think it is legit...especially since I forgot my password and used the link to have them send me my password. -- and Logitech did send me my password.

My transaction went through and confirmation from Logitech also came through.
