Netgear HDX101: 200Mbps Powerline Networking

Poweline networking has long been the laughing-stock of networking devices. While Wi-Fi and other wireless junk has taken off, everyone is always harshing on poor powerline networking for no good reason. Until now.

Enter 200Mbps powerline rockage with the HDX101. 200Mbps is considerably more than the trickle we once saw with this selfsame technology and at $249.99 for a full kit—the HDXB101—I might actually even give it a try. Beats waiting for Wi-Fi to transfer all my illicit pornography around my home network.
