D-Link PowerLine Kit
D-Link has announced the DHP-301, the company's answer to the burgeoning number of home networking kits that operate through powerlines. The 301 bundles Ethernet cable, two adapters, and an installation disc. Throughput tops off at 200Mbps. Like other powerline setups, the network is connected simply by threading Ethernet cable to the adapters, which are then plugged into standard power outlets. Your home's own powerlines carry the data. D-Link says that the 301 will ship online and to retail "later this quarter" for the price of $220.
