Networking over existing electrical wiring

HomePlug is the family name for various power line communications specifications that support networking over existing home electrical wiring. The major benefit of powerline networking is that users can easily establish a network using a home’s existing electrical wiring as the communication medium. There is no need to drill holes in walls or ceilings to route new wiring and, as a result, installation is quick, easy and relatively inexpensive.
