NETGEAR XAVB1004 Home Theater Internet Connection Kit Connect Multiple Ethernet-Enabled Entertainment Devices, 200Mbps, 4-Port Ethernet Switch

It didn't use to make much difference to most people whether or not they
had an Ethernet port by their entertainment center. After all, why would
they possibly want to hook up their TV or cable box to the Internet?
Well, as most of us know, times have certainly changed in the world of
home entertainment and more and more of us are taking advantage of
things like Internet radio and streaming HD movies through high-speed
Internet connections. The latest home theater networking hub from
NETGEAR, the XAVB1004, will have you off and connected in no time.

NETGEAR today announced the availability of its latest powerline
networking kit for turning electrical power outlets into high-speed
Internet and home network connections. NETGEAR's XAVB1004 Home Theater
Internet Connection Kit makes it possible to connect multiple
Ethernet-enabled entertainment devices (gaming consoles, Blu-ray
players, HDTVs and media streaming set-top boxes) to the Internet and
the home network simultaneously. Through a high-speed powerline
connection of up to 200 Mbps, this powerline kit enables
high-performance applications such as HD video streaming, Voice over IP
(VoIP), Internet gaming and large file transfers to networked devices in
the home theater.

The kit contains one Powerline AV Adapter with 4-port Ethernet Switch
and one Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter. This no new wires powerline
technology enables customers to carry high-speed data network traffic on
their existing electrical wiring using affordable, simple to install
adapters. Additionally, advanced energy management capabilities provide
automatic port- and device-level sleep modes as well as wake-on-activity
functionality to reduce overall energy usage.
NETGEAR's Home Theater Internet Connection Kit is perfect for anyone who
wants to extend their home network range, especially those who use
Internet-connected devices that demand high bandwidth. The Home Theater
Internet Connection Kit eliminates the need to add an external switch
for connecting additional devices to the network by integrating a 4-Port
Fast Ethernet (10/100) switch. The product is also the first 4-port
powerline switch to use the Intellon 6400 chipset, which provides higher
performance than any existing 4-port powerline switch on the market.

NETGEAR's XAVB1004 Home Theater Internet Connection Kit is now available
worldwide through leading retailers, e-commerce sites and value-added
resellers. The kit is backed by a one-year warranty and 24/7 technical
support. The Home Theater Internet Connection Kit has an MSRP of $179.99.
