Use power lines to carry data

by maverickis on June 25, 2005

We have just had broadband installed at home. The normal alternatives for a home network are wireless or running ethernet cabling.

Wireless was suspect because its an older house and the walls are brick and I would have to install Airport cards in the emacs.

Ethernet cabling would be ugly running along the hall and up the stairs.

Then I saw a review in the latest Macworld for Microlink dLAN adaptors. Just plug the adaptor into a wall socket and the router uses the internal power lines to transmit data. Works brilliantly and seamlessly. We can use the old ibook in any room of the house by just plugging in the adaptor into the nearest wall socket.

I have wired houses and where I work with Ethernet cabling and I will never have to do that again.
