Netgear Goes 200Mbps Powerline with Adapter, Kit
Netgear today debuted a 200Mbps powerline solution for HD video and gaming. The new 200 Mbps Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter (HDX101) and Kit (HDXB101) are priced at $129.99 and $249.99 respectively and look to be available now.
The HDX101, according to Netgear, turns an AC outlet into a high-speed Ethernet broadband connection capable of supporting real-time video, gaming and VoIP. It is designed based on powerline technology from DS2, a supplier of 200Mbps technology. The HDX101 also has built-in technology for helping to prioritize gaming and video signals above other network traffic so they are reportedly more consistent and free of interruption.
Like any powerline solution, two adapters are needed to make the connection work. Netgear’s HDXB101 includes two HDX101 adapters, an Ethernet cable and a setup CD.
