From BGR:
Everyone knows that wired internet connections are much faster and more reliable than even the best Wi-Fi on the planet. The problem, of course, is that running cat6 cable through your house so you can install Ethernet ports is very expensive. What you may not be aware of, however, is that the regular old power lines that are already running through your home can deliver internet that’s just as fast and reliable as cat6. Check out the D-Link PowerLine AV2 1000 Gigabit Starter Kit. Just plug in one box next to your modem and the other near your computer or whichever device you’d like to connect. That’s it — the powerline adapters connect using regular Ethernet cable.
