    Indeed, it's a neat feature, especially for people who do not wish to setup wireless networks.

    Yes that has been around for a few years, I know people who swear by it!

    There is one problem though, If you dwelling was re-wired incorrectly they you'll have problems with using the powerline adapters. I am in that boat I mean I have power just unable to control areas of the house with PowerCenter RF controls for lighting.. Powerline won't work here. Wireless does work here 95% the other 5% is for wired networking for total 100%
