Got myself a pair of the netcomm 200Mbps Homeplug AV ethernet over power adapters to reach into a hard to reach (wireless wise) part of my house.
Plugged them in, turned them on, configured linux to bring the interface up – works!
Technology is fantastic when it works – and this works fine. Throughput-wise I got 23 Megabytes / sec which is 184 Megabits / sec which is close to the rated throughput of the device. Sure , I might have gotten lucky, but I deserve it 🙂
