Chapter 4. Phone-Line–Based Home Networks

Chapter 4. Phone-Line–Based Home Networks

In this chapter…

Until recently, home networks depended on special cables (typically requiring professional installation) to link PCs, A/V equipment, and peripheral devices together, which could be expensive and problematic if the hardware components were in different rooms of the house. Now, thanks to recent technological developments, consumers can use their already installed telephone and electrical wiring system to link multiple computers and digital appliances around the house. This chapter examines a number of phone line technologies that promise to deliver the holy grail of home networks without the need to run hundreds of meters of new data cables inside the walls of your house.
