Linksys PLTK300 Powerline Network Kit

The Linksys Powerline Network Kit contains a single-port Powerline Adapter, and a four-port Powerline Adapter, which let 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.

With Powerline Network Adapters, you can connect computers or any other wired Ethernet device using the HomePlug® 1.0 with Turbo network standard. They also work with older HomePlug 1.0 devices. Adding devices to the network is as simple as plugging a Powerline Adapter into an electrical outlet, and connecting your Ethernet-equipped devices to the built-in Ethernet ports. 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 Adapter and you'll be able to get to the Internet from any Powerline attached computer in the house.

The Linksys Powerline Network kit gets you started with easy, "no new wires", home or office networking.
