Berkeley, CA, 2008 April 18 – today announced the release
of a new ultra-fast powerline network adapter for Macintosh. Powerline
networking allows you to route your network through the electrical lines
that are already built into your home or office. With speeds up to 200
Mbps, this is a great way to get your Ethernet network to other floors or
rooms in your building, without the need to run wires. Powerline Network
Adapters are particularly useful when concrete, metal, or other
obstructions in the walls of your home or office block your wireless
signals. Please see below for details.

Ethernet extension cable.
