This technology provides outstanding speed, capacity and security, while eliminating the need to route new cables throughout the home.

BL-PA100KTA is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to setup. I installed this product in a clients home about six months ago. The reason for install was wiring was not an option and wireless to difficult to work with. Solid Concrete and marble framework made it impossible to use wireless effectively. I have never use HD-PLC before and thought I'd give it a try on this install. Well, this product is beyond the best solution. It uses the existing electrical wiring in your home as network lines. Too cool! An airhead can set this thing up! No thinking required. In couple of steps and your up and running. The only downside is the price tag.
