    PowerLine Ethernet -- PLEBR10

    I use these in my home and haven't had a problem. You don't need a (windows)
    PC unless you want to change the default encryption 'password' which is
    homepower or something like that (it is recommended you do this). I just
    hooked it up to my pc changed the password and then plugged it in where in
    the house I wanted to use them. I have three of these, one for the PC room,
    one for the living room (slimp3) and one out in the garage for the rsync
    backup server.

    Thanks for the info that RS is closing them out, I may need to pick up a few
    more...
