August 20, 2009: Had enough of all this fun and cycling? Then how about this news story just received from a company called Billion? It's a nice step forward ... if you're into such techie stuff!
Its headline reads 'Billion has launched the first UK wireless ‘N’ Homeplug AV 200 Mbps wall plug Ethernet adapter.' Yawning yet? Well don't, because wireless N is the next generation WiFi and if you're streaming video and music round your house, or gaming, or doing anything that needs fast throughput or better range, this should interest you.
N is not quite standardised, but will be soon. Homeplug lets you use the mains wiring as a network so the combination of a high-speed 'N' access point and a Homeplug adapter could be quite potent. It's great for larger homes, garages, outbuildings, or where the thickness of the walls limits wireless coverage. Check out the Billion web site .
