Linksys PLTE200 Powerline Network Adapter

The Powerline Ethernet Adapter lets you easily create a network using the existing electrical outlets in your home. Now you don't have to drill holes in walls and climb through the attic or cellar to install network cables -- just use the wires that already run through the building.

The Powerline Adapter connects computers, or any other wired Ethernet device, using the HomePlug® 1.0 with Turbo network standard. It also works with older HomePlug 1.0 devices. Adding a device to the network is as simple as plugging the Powerline Adapter into an electrical outlet, and connecting your Ethernet-equipped device using the included network cable. Additional devices can be connected to the same network using additional Powerline Adapters plugged into any electrical outlet anywhere in the house.

Once your computers are connected to the network, they can share resources like printers and storage space, and all kinds of files -- music, digital pictures, and documents. With up to 85Mbps data rates, you can play lag-free head-to-head network computer games, and run applications like Voice over IP telephony. Plug your Internet connected router into a Powerline Ethernet Adapter and you'll be able to get to the Internet from any Powerline attached computer in the house.

The Linksys Powerline Ethernet Adapter is the perfect solution for easy, "no new wires", home or office networking.
