Powerline Networking (for under $45)


Medialink’s MHP-EA200 HomePlug Adapters will extend your wifi network with data speeds of up to 200mbps to every corner of your home. Imagine having the stability, security and ultra fast speed of a fully wired home network without having to run any wires!

You can buy this item at Amazon.com for under $45.00, here is one review of the product that I found helpful:

Frustrated with the performance of our wireless network, we ran an ethernet cable out of the bedroom, down the stairwell, around the edge of the family room, behind a couch, and finally to our Roku 2XS. Great performance, but now we had an ugly cable running across the house. I had heard of powerline networking, so I did a bit of research and decided to give it a try.

I’m so glad I did.

The product shipped quickly and arrived on time. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. I had the units hooked up and the Roku online and streaming in less than five minutes. The performance seems to be equal to the ethernet cable, and completely unobtrusive. It seems to be a perfect solution for our needs.


1. Simply connect one adaptor to your existing modem or router.
2. Then plug the adapter into any power outlet.
3. Then connect a second adapter to any Ethernet enabled device.
4. Finally, plug the adapter into the wall.

Before Homeplug, the choices for in-home networks were limited to either WiFi or Ethernet.
