Homeplug/Slingbox Networking

  VanCity 22:59 04 Feb 2009


Just looking to get a slingbox to watch home tv while away in canada, it seems the best way is to use homeplugs with regards to the internet connection.

There seem to be 2 options - 85mbps or 200mbps, would one be any better than the other?

Always go for the faster option if you can afford it. That would be the 200Mbps one ;)

There is no need to get or use home plugs use the SlingLink™ TURBO 1-Port instead
The SlingLink™ TURBO 1-Port is a plug and play device that uses your house electrical cabling
to transfer the data signal from your router

Easily connect your Slingbox™ to your router - even if they're located in separate rooms.

The SlingLink TURBO 1-Port kit comes with two one-port units.
