Extender (fwd)That looks good. I sometimes worry about the effects of Led

I've often been worried about the health effects of the radio signal that
my wireless router pumps put, this would appear to be a great solution with
the added bonus of decent speed elsewhere in the house.

Thanks for the info.

[1] NetGear extends its HomePlug products to include 802.11g/HomePlug
bridge: The item isn't on the site yet, but NetGear says their new WGXB102
unit is the first 802.11g-equipped HomePlug powerline networking access
point. HomePlug's standard runs at just 14 Mbps over ordinary home
electrical wiring, and using one Ethernet-to-HomePlug adapter and one
HomePlug access point, you can easily extend the range of a home network
without running wire or relying on the vagaries of Wireless Distribution
System (WDS).

NetGear points out that 802.11g runs at a nominal 54 Mbps, which means
that you will have full speed on your network among devices connecting to
the HomePlug access point, and you will achieve the full 14 Mbps rate
available on the HomePlug backbone. Since 802.11b runs at 11 Mbps and often
carries data at a much slower rate, like 4 or 5 Mbps, having the extra
capacity of 802.11g will definitely speed the backbone's transit.

Simon --

Just wait until he's aged 14, 6'2", dressed in black from top to toe,
and streaming Muse bass-lines (or Chili Peppers riffs) straight through
_your_ head using his Ibanez bass or Custom Les Paul and a selection of
Marshall amps... -- that's when you really need to worry...!?! [Noise
cancelling headphones are looking sooo tempting....]

PS: Let me know if you can ever hear him in Brighton; and I'll get the
sound turned down. We're only in Cheltenham!?!
