Linksys Powerline HomePlug AV2 Kit

To get Internet, people need either a 3G modem, a Wi-Fi router or an Ethernet cable. Either way, a data carrier needs to be involved.

Home networks don't necessarily need Internet connection though, and they don't really need to rely on LAN cables either. Powerline AV adapters can make for a good substitute. All it takes to set up a network is to plug at least two of them in standard power sockets and voila! Home networking. Linksys has just introduced a Powerline AV kit, called Powerline HomePlug AV2, or PLEK500. It has a speed of 500 Mbps (Internet speed will still be limited by the source though).

The HomePlug AV2 has a Gigabit Ethernet port to connect to whatever Internet grid the neighborhood has.  Linksys.com and major retailers are selling the kit for $129.99 / €99 – 129.99.
