The Megaplug AV 200 from Actiontec is a plug and play network extending adapter which easily networks not only your high bandwidth needs like Audio and Video but also more critical electronics like your aquarium controller. Installation could not be any easier. Step 1: open the box, step 2: plug the Megaplug directly into a wall socket, step 3: connect the ethernet cables to your megaplug, router and aquarium controller and off you go. The MegaPlug AV 200 is an essential piece of kit for aquariums which are too far from your home router, or impractical to link with an extra long ethernet cord. The only slight drawback to this network extender is that it must be plugged in directly to the outlet; as we quickly learned, the Megaplug didn’t work when plugged into a power strip, as indicated by the ‘directions’. The Megaplug may work with a simpler extension cord but we haven’t tried so we cannot say for sure. Either way, $125 will quickly and painlessly network your aquarium controller, big thanks to Brian Blank and Actiontec for sending along the demo pair of Megaplugs.
