PIGGY6 HomePlug Power Strip – ugly duckling networking box spreads networking love

Piggy6homeplugethernet

This  PIGGY6 HomePlug Power Strip gets our vote as the ugliest product of the month, all clunky black plastic and orifices, but it’s actually a pretty useful bit of kit. The thing comes with 3 ethernet ports built in, plus a filtered powerline networking module, so you can plug it in to your home’s electrical system, hook up your games consoles, computers and what have you, and enjoy wire-free networking in any room in the house. The multiple power sockets may be unconventionally arranged, but it makes for a more compact unit really. £72.10.

 The VeseNET HomePlug Mains Power Strip with 3 Ethernet Ports operates on the HomePlug Powerline AV Specification standard, providing up to 200Mbps bandwidth over home AC wiring. Since the home power lines are the most pervasive medium in households with multiple outlets in every room, the PIGGY6 HomePlug Power Strip allows multiple home gaming consoles, AV devices, desktops computers, and notebooks to be networked, to share Internet, printers, files, and play games without any additional wiring.
