Installing web access throughout the house can be difficult. Of course, it doesn’t have to be. A powerline solution can add a high-speed network anywhere there’s an existing outlet. Now, that option is also affordable, thanks to Newegg.
The online retailer is currently selling the ZyXEL PLA407 HomePlug AV Powerline Wall Mount Ethernet Adapter Kit through eBay for just $59.99. This price is for a 2-pack of adapters and also includes free shipping. If you don’t feel like registering for an eBay account, Buy.com also has the product at the same price—and it’s a good one.
The PLA407 makes it insanely easy to expand your home network, all without fishing wire. Just plug one unit into your existing router and the other into any wall outlet. That’s it! ZyXEL says that this solution can support up to 64 devices with up to 200Mbps data transfer rates. That’s good enough for web surfing, HD video streaming, and much more. It also has a built-in noise filter, so you don’t have to worry about surrounding equipment.
Although Newegg is offering this item through eBay, it’s not an auction. You can buy the item instantly at this reduced price. Because this price is so low, the retailer is limiting the purchase to five per customer.
