Features and Considerations

One of the challenges for HomePNA is that it’s not as readily known as other choices for home networking, such as setting up a wireless LAN. Although HomePNA is easy and affordable, Ethernet and wireless LANs still rule the day for networking computers. As home networking becomes more elaborate and other peripherals, such as HDTVs and digital entertainment centers, become added to the network, HomePNA will see an advantage over wireless LAN. Most manufacturers of these entertainment centers are more likely to add a phone jack socket for network connectivity than to add a comparatively expensive wireless adapter. Some of the Internet appliances that support HomePNA include the HP digital entertainment center, the SONICblue RIO digital audio center, and the Turtle Beach Audiotron.
